Cloudy brown beer, no real head. lots of oxidised malt on the nose. Flavour is oxidised malt and chocolate. A little dried fruit underneath. Persistent agitation gets shot of most of the oxidisation fumes and flavours and turns the beer clear!! Now the beer tastes like of rich barleywine like malts with lesser notes of aniseed alcohol, bourbon, smooth unsweet wood and chocolate. Warming finish. Nice beer - but Top 50??

Expensive bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam
vintage 2011, 13.5% ABV

Dark brown color, with basically no head, just a few bubbles on the borders. The aroma is strong, roasted malts and phenol, dark chocolate; peculiar, not amazing. Roasted malt and coffee flavor, strong body, but just moderate sweetness; light liquorice and phenol, very light vanilla; quite strong alcohol warmth.
No elegance, too much phenol, and excessive overall.

Cheers to Ken for sharing ... dark brown ... sweet bourbon toffee malt ... juicy malt nose .... heavy and sweet toffee malt .. huge bourbon ... good roast ... sweet vanilla but way to much bourbon for me again... ie come more and more to realise that bourbon barrel stuff is usually to heavy Bourbon for me
