4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear brownish black with a small dense head. The nose is wonderfully ballanced with soft/light chocolate, hint of soft bourbon, a little licorice and soft dark fruits. Not the most powerfull nose but really pleassant. Taste: nice! Sweet up front with ballanced bourbony wood, a little chocolate cake batter, some coca cola and a weak hint of booze. Dark fruits and chocolate cake in the aftertaste.
Tak Morten & Svend

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ ØlKonsortiet summer shananigans. Nose is heavy on the bourbon, lots of toffey, tobacco leaves, vanilla, toasted oak, honey, dark fruits and a bit of candy-like notes as well. Booze to top it off. Lots of barrel presence in the taste, though not as boozy as the aroma suggests, and a good bit sweeter than the Brewmaster’s 2011. Notes of cocoa, nutella and toffey. Prefer the 2011 by a bit.

Bottle share. Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Very much dark fruit, slightly burnt, a lot of barrel caracter. Full body, much more rounded than ’11 vintage. Low bitterness, very nice.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours the same as all the other fuckin’ ones. Big butterscotch in the aroma, plenty of chocolate, vanilla, coconut. Very buttery on the palate with a nice creamy coconut sweetness. Almost a resiny/apricot note in there too. Really cool beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Mane Liquor Eclipse tasting. Pours dark brown with a sticky tan head. The mouth feel on this one is seriously good - like a big hug! Nose is big and oaky with plenty of vanilla, brandy-like sweetness and a kick of bourbon. Taste is thick treacle, honey, milk chocolate, vanilla and very oaky. Plenty of dark fruits and fudge in this one. Slightly warming booze which is pleasing. Complexity and I like it. Exceptional

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Deep brown/black body. Short, lasting creamy tan head. Big aroma of bourbon, caramel, roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, oak. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, moderate carbonation. Nice balance and nice that the bourbon doesn’t overwhelm the rich flavors. Tastes of toffee, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon.

Bottle thanks to Minh. Pours a dark brown with paperthin beige head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is booze, oak, vanilla, and roast. Thick mouthfeel with rich oak and light bitter malt with nice roast boozy finish. Wow really enjoyed this.
