3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle @ home (#293/396 - bbe 06-2014 so about time). Clear deep dark brown color with a red hue. Dense frothy beige head with pretty good retention and fair lacing. Smell of whiskey comes out immediately, but also red fruit, oak/vanilla, some roast ed malt, a little umami. Less whiskey-ish retronasal (but still so), more fruity (berries), some licorice, roasted malts. Flavor is fruity, on the verge of being sour, light sweet. Body is rather thin. Flavor disappears quite quickly with a light bitterness remaining. Pleasant and interesting, but the combination of Bourbon and Schwarz is not the bomb.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very tasty, especially for a schwarzbier. The barrel aging gives it an extra depth and richness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 330 ml bottle, at home, into a snifter. ABV 5.5%
Dark brown mahogany colour on the body, with a minimal beige head, low retention and just a thin line of lacing left around the glass.
Strong bourbon aromas, overpowering most of everything else, although some toasted malts and light toffee are also traceable.
Taste also of bourbon mainly, toasted malts, light chocolate. Light bitterness on the aftertaste.
Thin bodied, low carbonation.
Overall good, in spite of the low alcohol and the thin body
