ChrisOs Marvellous Pre GBBF Mega Tasting. Thanks to Jan (Fonefan) for this rarity. Hazy amber beer, no real head. Sherry like tangy dried fruits. Trace of vanilla wood barrel. Very mild bourbon sourness. Very nice but barely restrained booze.

Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s 2012 Pre-GBBF Shindig, London. Pours a hazy, red-gold with a light, bubbly head. Golden raisin nose with some dry wood and alcohol accents. Big sweet flavor with plenty of woody tang, a bit of caramel, honey. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Moderate woody and boozy sting on the finish, fairly vinous with lots of sugary golden raisins. It’s a slow-burner.

Theydon_Bois (16671) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns., Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle at home, from HOTD PDX, 16/01/13. Pours a clear dark amber brown with a thin off white head that clears to a bubbly edge piece and a triangular film. Second half of the bottle leads to a hazy pour. Nose is big on the bourbon, wood, booze, dark toffee, dark fruits, coconut backnotes. Taste comprises sweet sugars, big boozey notes but well tempered by the sugars so’s not to come over too harsh, dark fruits, raisens, dates, touch of coconut. Carbonation is a little over cooked for my liking (and evident in the bubbly appearance), full bodied, boozey and sweet in the finish. Having supped this one gently over an hour, the carbonation flattens out so raised from 3 to 4. A top drop, well balanced, good dose of booze but tempered by the sweetness.

brokensail (15774) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a small off-white head. Intense bourbon and booze aromas come through immediately. A hint of caramel and butterscotch with vanilla and oak being strong contributors as well. Intensely sweet on both the nose and palate. Lots of sweet caramel, vanilla, and whiskey notes on the tongue. Decently woody, but not quite as much as regular Fred from the Wood. Perhaps a hint of maple syrup on the finish. A hint of carbonation would have improved this already good beer.
