3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Brouwer’s for Big Wood, pours a deep dark amber / brown with a small tan head. Aroma of lager yeast, some wood, treacle and sugar. Flavour is very sweet, with cloying candied sugar sweetness, some herbal notes, lager yeast and minor woody notes. Cloyingly sweet with lingering candied sugar notes. Okay, but too sweet for me.

Sampled from the tap at FOBAB 2012. Pours a clear amber brown with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of caramel and toffee with a decent amount of oak. Flavor starts sweet with caramel but mellows to more of a toffee and bread finish with a hint of oak.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aged in a Maker’s Mark barrel. Probably a different listing, but whatever, fuck it. Someone else can add it. Wonderful sweet nose of vanilla, bourbon, oak, brown sugar, chocolate, dark fruit. Really sweet, but really nice smelling. Pours brown with light red hues, thin head. Mostly hazy, opaque or whatever. Flavors of bourbon to start, brown bread, chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla, brown sugar, and light wood. Sweetness is balanced and rounded out. Not cloying at all. I am not a huge sweet beer fan but this worked wonderfully. Good shit here, no hint of 10%. Solid fucking stuff.
