Jultsu (391) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
Lähes pikimusta, hivenen läpinäkyvä, reunoille kahvimaisesti häipyvä vaahto. Tuoretta ja intensiivistä makeutta, luumua? Suuntuntuma vetisempi kuin oletin, lakritsaa, vienoa alkoholia. Jälkimaussa enemmän runkoa ja tunnetta, myös voimakkaampana alkoholia., jotain kevyttä saippuaa ehkä myös? Oudosta sivumausta huolimatta hyvää kamaa tämäkin.

Thisis12ptfont (1018) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Massive aromas of bourbon, vanilla, barrel wood, oak, smoke, chocolate, fresh coconut, toffee, raisin, charred malt, sweet burnt sugar, milk chocolate and some dark fruits. Appears black with a very thin brown foam ring. Taste is really unique with carbonated chocolate, cocoa powder, cocoa pebbles, and coffee resin upfront. Mid palate comes the barrel with huge vanilla, oak, bourbon, coconut milk, silky chocolate, toffee, barrel wood, dry roasted malts, sweet coconut juice and some coffee bitterness. Finishes relatively dry with tons of residual chocolate, slick malts, sticky caramel and lots of bourbon on the throat. Overall, this isn’t your average bourbon barrel beer nor your average porter. It’s got a ton of complexity. Full bodied and well balanced.
