MarcoDL (2831) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle @ ZEBF 2015. The aroma of this beer is quite divine, strong notes of cookie, vanilla and caramel. Taste is extermely rich and full, with cookie, vanilla, bourbon booze, caramel and some chocolate. Fantastic.

Thanks, Brian, for this one. Poured into snifter. Dark black body, brown head. Attractive. Aroma of rich cocoa, dark chocolate, bourbon, anise. Taste is rich and complex array of roasted malts but well balanced with sweetness, caramel, vanilla, liquorice. Very nice beer.

bytemesis (4468) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours inky black, medium brown head, dissipates fairly quickly leaving nice residual and lacing. Aroma is bourbon, wood, anise, chocolate, vanilla, molasses. Quite tannic. Flavor is pretty sweet, medium bitter, boozy, woody, vanilla chocolate, a hint of coconut, molasses, bourbon, a hint of rum. Medium plus body, woody astringency and a lot of heat on this one, which is a bit of a distraction.

Abio (1770) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2015
Had some higher hopes from this brew as what it deliverd. Missed a small boost for me. Still very nice ofcourse, like most of Evil Twin.

Barrelbelly (702) - BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2015
Espresso, vanilla, warm liquorish aftertaste. The bourbon barrels bring this beer from a very good one to a great one.

kermis (6866) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle sampled at ZEBF ’15. Pours near black with a ring brown head. Massive bourbon, vanilla aroma with chocolate, toffee, oak, roast and coffee. Flavour is heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Light full bodied with light carbonation.

McNeillR (1678) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Dark brown with another decent ruby glint. Less greasy lacing and more of a crater of tan head. Rich, singing bourbon with not too much sweetness. Initial taste is soft, tarry dried cola nuts and a sway of greasy bitterness. Lean roast, greasy mouthfeel and not too viscous. Finishes with a bot of heat and not a lot of dusty sweetness that was hinted at initial.
