Saveurs de caramel, malt rôtie et fruits séchés. Une belle présence de sucre et d’alcool qui ne sont toute fois pas envahissants. Tres bien.

Holy fuck balls. This beer right here is something special. Smells very strongly of caramel with a hint of bourbon. Not a very strong head. Very full body with many complex aromas of marshmellow and caramel. An absolute treat for anyone.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
BOTTLE 12 OZ. Clear dark ruby, beige head. The aroma is full-on, caramel and dried fruit, vanilla and toasted coconut, creamy milk chocolate and toffee sweetness - all sprinkled with a little bourbon. The taste is just as big - caramel (not overly sweet or sticky), balanced by some dark bread and alcohol spice right from the start. The bourbon is there, but not too in your face. Smooth velvety finish with notes of chocolate liqueur and alcohol infused candies. Some spicy hops too. A kick-back sipper indeed. Excellent.
