Lilja (2274) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2014
En riktig fullträff. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, nötter, trä, plommon, fikon, whisky, fatkaraktär, bourbonkänsla, vanilj med toner av choklad, russin, aprikos, bubbelgum, brunt socker. Krämig, perfekt sötma, fruktig, intensiv, välbalanserad, komplex med tydlig, en aning pepprig beska. Väl dold alkohol som tar fram smakerna riktigt ordentligt utan att ta överhand.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (40:-). Mycket bourbon och hög sötma, karamell, maltig och fruktig, vanilj, alkoholvärme. Avslutningen är söt med bourbon-toner. Kanske något för söt.

jerohen (2083) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2014
Bottled, thanks to Arjen for sharing. Red brown colored, very small head. Powerful nose, wood, bourbon, vanilla, alcohol, malts, liquor, some caramel. Caramel malty flavor, lots of alcohol, bourbon, vanilla, sweetness. Quite unrefined, the alcohol is overwhelming. It may get better with some (decades of) aging, but in the current condition i don’t think i could finish a whole bottle of this.

Bottle (thanks to BelgBeerGeek for this and hannont for brining this across the pond)... Poured deep amber/brownish with a thin head. Intense whiskey and oak aroma. Smooth caramel toasted sweetness. Hints of bourbon, vanilla, malted grains and more sweetness. Quite complex with a full lingering finish.

PotjeBier (2168) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2014
33 cl bottle from De Bierkoning. Had the regular version just days ago. Red-brown color with some stuff floating in it. Little or no head. Aroma’s of sweet red fruit, oak, vanilla, liquor, a bit of toffee. Retronasal there’s more toffee, whiskey, vanilla, wood, red fruit, well balanced. Flavor is sweet, alcoholic, toffee, a hint of bitterness. Alcohol feel is quite strong, warming. Mouthfeel is soft, low carbonation. Full bodied. Finishes moderate bitter but also still sweet. Much better than the regular version (which was already good). Love this.
