CloakedDagger (1933) - - AUG 16, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours amber with tiny impurities and a small, off-white head. Distinct and very typical Bourbon aroma of licorice allsorts - or wood and vanilla if you prefer. Rich, sweet body, loads of vanilla and in the end quite boozy. But still super delicious. 160816

Full, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.

Very tasty. Pretty sweet and boozy, but greatly balanced, never sticky or too alcoholic. Wonderfully integrated bourbon notes, with loads of various fruit notes. A really pleasant, smooth sipper!

bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 3, 2015
.16L pour from chilled bottle into beer tulip at a beer and cheese tasting in Austria. Amazing beer. One of the best whisky barrel-aged beers I’ve had. Ruby/deep orange, hazy, moderate white head. Great depth. Full body, crisp. A little cherry, lots of bossiness, oak and woodiness. Smooth boozy burn on the end. Warming. A little sweet. Nose is oak, alcohol, and lots else.
