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.

Aroma: Bourbon and raisins with light molasses and vanilla. Appearance: Poured a rich dark brown with light head. Taste: Very bourbon heavy with strong underlying vanilla tones. This is a very sweet beer. Overall: Although this is a very good beer, it is just not quite my thing. It is almost too sweet. Still a really good beer but I wouldn't actively seek it out again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great beer! The deep amber/brown color and light brown head, intense sweet aroma of figgs, caramel, honey and raisins, and a rich and delicious sweet taste, with notes of raisins and rom among others, adds up to a really great beer. I am becoming increasingly fond of this beer style!

dodskenta (24) - Rönninge, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a very dark clear red brown with a one finger off white head. Nose hits you right away with bourbon, oak, plums, raisins, caramel. Flavour is very good with sweet malts, some smoke, dark fruits and on the end you get the bourbon. Mouthfeel is medium and ends a bit dry. The flavour doesn’t really linger that long.

God och mycket kryddig doft. Mycket karaktär. Även smaken var väldigt god med tydlig fatlagring och kryddor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FunkyF (215) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2015
Flaska från SB. Mörkt brun med beige skum. Tydlig bourbon doft med lite kola och choklad. Smaken präglas av bourbon och den är ganska torr och lite spritig.

Pours a dark red with a white lacy head. Insanely strong malt aroma. Taste is a very sweet intense malt made more complex with the barrel flavors. with a slightly bitter finish.No taste of alcohol?maybe too sweet? Very thick low on bubbles.
