oh6gdx (23704) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2015
Draught@CBC 2015 (Yellow). Deep coppery brown colour with a small off-white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is ripe fruits, plum, alcohol, some vanilla and a bit of toffee. Flavour is a nice balance of the same, with some slight fruity bitterness and a quite biting alcohol edge to it. Very nice.

Bottle. Pours a dark mahogany brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, chocolate and caramel. Flavor was sweet and silky smooth with caramel, bourbon, toffee, dried dark fruit, oak, vanilla and light chocolate. Sticky texture, full bodied, soft carbonation, an excellent bw

demmbonz (706) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2015
12oz bottle to snifter. Dark mohogany. If you didn’t give it a second glance you might suppose it a stout. Decent head and a lasting ring. Sweet sweet sweet aroma. Some dark fruit. No booze which is amazing. Taste is heavenly molasses and toffee and burnt marshmallow with just a slight bitterness at the very end. Big sticky body. Moderate carbonation. Just wonderful.

Darkest possible mahogany with no head. Thick, sweet, oily... big rich caramel, dried red fruits, bourbon... heavy, boozy sipper. Amazing.

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 29, 2015
33cl bottle, courtesy of sebletitje (thanks Sebastian), pours with a clear amber body that supports a thin light tan ring of bubble. The aroma offers up boozy bourbon and sweet vanilla flowing into thin malts and molasses. The taste is smooth and slick with yummy molasses and a thin toffee sensation. It then picks up vanilla, modest smooth bourbon and booze to midway. This is a smooth sipper where the modest barrel treatment compliments rather than dominates the experience.

androman (1140) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2015
33cl bottle at home from de Molen, Bodegraven. Body is nearly black, head is very small, beige, creamy, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Nose is bourbon, coconut, flavor is whiskey, chocolate, licorice, molasses, herbs, dried fruits. Heavy sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Finish is medium lasting roasty bitter-sweet, light sour, medium alcohol warmth. Full body, oily sticky texture, soft carbonation. Quite heavy, tasty, a bit too sweet for me.
