Countbeer (4539) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle: Thanks Futuraxz: Served in a Chouffe glass: Black beer with a thin light brown lacing. Aromas of bourbon, butter, spice, cream, mocha, some raisin, vanilla and wood. Flavours of bourbon, spice, chocolate, vanilla, chocolate, bitters, mocha, malt roast, spices and cream with a custardy edge. Aftertaste is a mix of bourbon, roast, malts, vanilla and some chocolate. Low carbo, very light sparkling creamy mouthfeel, fullbodied and a creamy texture. Very nice beer but not as balanced as I would expect...

"damn - this was was THOROUGHLY enjoyed. Thanks Cory. Holy crap was it delicious. Just right on the bourbon with vanilla, chocolate, roast, coffee and wood on the palate. similar aroma, but a tad more subdued. velvety smooth feel, not hot at all. World Class! Lost a little in traslation to 12 oz bottles. Not as smooth, otherwise still epic!"
