3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to a friend who split this bottle with me. We poured it into snifters and were greeted with a slight white head that sat on top of the most awesome caramel honey colored brew I have seen in a while. The whisky aroma was well present in the nose. I also got some nice woodiness and a slight fruit aromas as well. The flavor was good I got a little caramel sweetness from the malts and the barrel aging worked well with it. Hints of vanilla and some smoke came thru as it warmed.
A good brew I have had it in my hands a few time and never pulled the plug on buying it. I will the next time I see it though.

Bue en bouteille. Arômes maltés présent et sucre candi (peut-être à peine trop). On sent le caramel et la vanille. Une très belle découverte au moment de la dégustation.

Clear Orange dark beer, with a small foam head and good carbonation, malt notes of caramel, citrus and vanilla. Medium body, clear flavor, a little bit more sweet than it mean to be but pretty good at the end; some wooden notes make it special and really enjoyable.
