COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big and delicious for your ’perty mouth. Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts. A bit of earthy spice and a scintilla of dark cherries. It’s a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.

swannycellars (43) - Swanbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2015
Deep brown colour with small off white head. Immediate aroma of bourbon and vanilla which gives way to chocolate and raisin. Smooth mouthfeel with a light bourbon flavour, chocolate in the mid palate before dark dried fruit and light alcohol warmth. Quite sweet but well balanced with a just present earthy bitterness. Been a few years since I tried this and I’m very impressed. Great winter warmer.

Draught at KØ15. Really good vanilla aroma. Cloudy chestnut colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is sweet with a great vanilla note, bordering on coconut. A great beer.

Bamsen78 (4455) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2015
Draught, KØ15. Pours hazy dark ruby with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, vanilla and barrel, with some fruity notes. Sweetish flavour of vanilla and malt, with notes of fruit and bitetr, hoppy touches. Lingering but non-aggressive aftertaste of vanilla. Cool, sweetish belches. Decent stuff, indeed.
