Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of byaeger. Pours a clear very dark brown with a tint of red and a smallish beige head. Aroma of Bourbon - and brown Malaco licorice allsorts... Rather boozy nose. Medium body, some hard roasted malts, very hot and boozy rather than woody. Some malt bitterness and a shitload of booze. 270310

22oz waxed bottle, thanks Alex. Black with a whispy light tan head. Sweet boozy brown sugar, touch of raisins and coffee with light cocoa. Body is a bit thin, with decent carb, but quite hot. Sweet and roasty but not much depth and just knocked over by the barrel.
