Bouteille 66cl @ RBBSG III, courtesy of Jef, this beer rocks! De couleur noir, huile de moteur, col léger café au lait, doré au verre. Arôme est profond au niveau Bourbon, tout simplement divin. Caramel, et chocolat accompagnent le tout. Palais est ici aussi, juste super avec ample présence du Bourbon qui donne complexité, léger boisé et une agréable touche vanillée. Malt grillé, note chocolaté avec une certaine épaisseur de bouche venant de l’avoine. Une bière à boire lentement, complexe et tellement savoureuse. Le tout est huileux et épais. On en oublie presque les houblons qui ici servent plus de support et de balance en y ajoutant une fine amertume.

2012 bottle drank in June 2014. Thanks for 5000 for sending this bottle my way. Dark brown to black pour with a tan head. The aroma has a ton of bourbon notes as well as some chocolate, oak and oats. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of bourbon and cream notes, but they are complemented by some nice chocolate notes. There is a bit of barrel character in the flavor as well. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice beer. Very glad I got to try it.

Generously shared by one of the fine Portland RB folks at a tasting - Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has oats, deep roast, chocolate, alcohol and soy. It has a medium / full body with light carbonation. The flavor starts off with heavy roast, chocolate and coffee. The finish is really roasty and shows a bit of the bourbon barrel. Quite good.

boom laser show. Big rich chocolately body that overwhelms the strong fudge brownie batter flavors of the bourbon barrel aging. Awesome beer, balanced alcohol levels
