On tap @Borefts fest 2012.
Pours of perfectly clear copper color white a good white head.
Aroma is mostly malt sweetness and vanilla.
Taste is more interesting, dark fruits, some oak caracter, alcohol is suprisingly huge.
Taste is good and complex, but alcohol wave ruins it.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer is amber in color with a white head. A fair amount of booze on the nose with a bit of a nail polish remover note. Somewhat perfumey, too. There is a lot of sweet caramel malt, some toast, and a bit of whiskey. A bit better on the palate as there is some fruit character, a nice maltiness, and whiskey flavor. Mild oak and vanilla notes, but still fairly hot and alcoholic.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks to MrHangover!
Hazy orange amber with a small porous head that dissolves into a ring.
Aroma: sweet maltiness, boozy, whiskey, toffee, fruit, vinous.
Taste: toffee, sweet whiskey (haven’t had Jack D in a good 10 years or so, but it was never a favourite), fruity, red berries, light earthy. The finish is light tart and wood.
A bit too boozy, plus the whiskey flavours (which aren’t even from a very good whiskey) take over a bit. Otherwise it’s pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Cloudy amber colour with no head - just a thin layer bubbles up and lasts enduring. Aroma is initially heavy caramel malty, sweet, has notes of candied fruit, apple, syrup, then the vanilla-pregnant bourbon notes find their way through. Taste is slightly sweet and tart, caramel malty, well hidden alcohol. The finish is ruled by the whiskey notes with a salient leather touch. Very well balanced, concerning the sweet and tart notes as well as the not overdone Jack Daniels component. Doesn’t nevertheless meet my preferences.
