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.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours hazy dark amber with no head. Aroma is bourbon and alcohol. Full bodied. Flavor is brown sugar and bourbon. There’s also almond, toffee and rye, but the bourbon is primary. Great finish on the sweet side. Very tasty.

brokensail (10735) - Orange County, 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.
