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.

Bottle @SB. Deep brown and red color. Light brown foam, not long lasting. A very nice aroma, touch of burned sugar, vanilla. Taste is good, medium sweet and nice small bitterness. Old fruits. Really nice beer.

12 oz bottle, thanks bytemesis! Aroma consists of coconut, vanilla, wood, peat, cashew brittle, raisins. Pours muddy brown with a dissipating beige head. Taste is sweet, slightly oxidized, earthy, oaky, boozy, dark fruits. Texture is oily, body full. Nice beer, but it’s a bit hot and not quite what I was expecting.

Geweldig bier ! Vanille, zoet, licht bittere smaak die lang blijft hangen. Ruikt ook heel erg lekker.

Caramel, toffee, massive vanilla tones an a little bitter oak. I love bourbon aged ales. Not a typical scottish ale, which is probably why it’s better than most! Extremely good with aged cheeses!

A little too boozy for what I was hoping for. Some nice sweet caramel flavors sit amongst some dark fruit. Good, not worth the hype though.

The hype out weighs this beer. A solid B to Low B+ beer but not a A beer. I really wanted this beer to blow me away but compared Wulver its just does not hold up on any level.

Flaska systembolaget. Brunfärgad med kopparton. Maltig och fuktigt jordig doft med russin och vanilj. Knäckig och härlig maltsötma i smaken. Romrussin, örter, sirap och lite kaffe. Fyllig kropp med rejäl beska.

Jado (635) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2015
From 345 ml bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with some brick red highlights at the edge and a thin but lasting off-white head. Aromas of raisins, prunes, macerated cherries, bourbon, vanilla and a touch of cocoa. Taste starts of with sweet biscuits and brown sugar, before some vanilla kicks in then some deep dark fruit flavours. There’s a little alcohol burn at the end but that’s quite minimal. Full creamy mouthfeel. Lingering malty aftertaste. Excellent barleywine.
