Stoned99 (477) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2015
750ml bottle shared with father in law and brother in law. Aroma: lots of bourbon, chocolate, roasted malt, caramel. App: dark brown, almost black. Moka head. Taste and palate: medium creamy body, liquoreux a bit, sweet and bourbon finish. Overall: pretty good. I like the addition of the bourbon to this beer, completely changes the taste of this beer.

Arômes d’alcool, bourbon,chocolat et café moulu. En bouche, le chocolat au lait et le bourbon prennent le dessus rapidement et suit le café noir ainsi que des noisettes. Les saveurs sont douces, équilibrés, sucrées et soyeuses. Le vieillissement de seulement 3 mois en fûts de bourbon empêche ce dernier d’être trop dominant et de conserver le côté léger de la Corriveau. Corps rond et faible effervescence. Amertume amère et sucrée.

Torrefacto (892) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 15, 2015
Color negro con reflejos caoba y espuma beis densa e irregular. Aromas dulces intensos de frutos rojos, bourbon, maíz y maltas tostadas. Cuerpo medio a denso, inicio dulce de burbon equilibrado qun acaba en un amargor tostado y suave que perdura hasta el regusto.

Bottle shared during Oudjaarsticken pub crawl. Black pour with tan foam. Aroma is quite nice, lots of vanilla, rich chocolaty aromas, light roast, mild bourbony notes, nice and desserty. Taste is mildly sweet, nice chocolaty flavors, not too boozy, nice sweet vanilla finish. Palate is full-med bodied with med-light carbonation. Well done.

Black bodied, aged, woody alcohol. Rich mouth feel, well aged but not a huge fan of bourbon aging. Well done brew. Not too thick. (Oudejaarsticken. Shared by Julien, many thanks!)
