Bottled. An unclear brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with a slight acidic edge - bret? The flavor is sweet matly and very much dominated by alcohol. Tasted blind. Thanks Storm for sharing.

(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of Storm. Pours an almost clear reddish brown with an off-white head. Very distinct oak aroma. Quite full-bodied, sweet and sugary, plenty of roasted malt and a little yeast. No real bitternes. Extremely sticky - way, way too sweet and off balance. 190408

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
20061007 Tap at Kennett Sq. Rootbeer brown color with thick tan head. Aroma is a punch of dark fruits, raisins, vinous. Didn’t realize this was a wine barrel but it shows. Richly flavored with the wine and wood coming through nicely, a good pairing with the mildly estery quad. Vanilla and sweet bread. Spice notes, cinnamon, anise come through to finish. Not much alcohol noticed. Worth a few samples.

This was surprisingly good. Typically when a beer has been aged in a bourbon barrel, it has an overbearing bourbon taste, but this beer was very subtle with its bourbon flavor and oakiness. It was very drinkable. It had a nice hint of vanilla and some yummy fruitiness. I would serve this beer with a ham dinner.

#33 Bottle. [Papsoe’s great blind tasting, thanks Henrik!]
Small bubbly beige head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Cloudy dark amber color. Aroma of citrus, fruit, strange medicine. Over the palate came sweet malt, honey, grain and fruity notes. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with light bitter notes. Sweet fruity light sharp finish.

Bottle: This was my first beer after a week of having a nasty little cold, so I wasnt sure how my palate would react, but this beer did not let me down! Almost light black in color. Not what I was expecting. Good size head that faded quickly. Smell of vanilla and oak. Smooth spicey taste and the alcohol warms you up. Light hint of bourbon. Very well done. Not watery but not thick as well and a good amount of carbonation. Good beer, very enjoyable!

reddish brown body with a nice white head that left lacing on the glass.the aroma is awesome.bananas,oak,fruits,vanilla,caramel,and just a touch of funk.the flavor was a different story.it was a bit leathery,and it really tasted like it was oak "chipped" instead of "barreled".at least to me.although i still was pretty damn good.
