Bottled. A murky dark brown beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of over ripe fruits and prunes, medium notes of malt, and lighter notes of chocolate, alcohol, bourbon, and vanilla. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, over ripe fruits, alcohol, caramel, wood, vanilla, and bourbon. The alcohol leaves a burn on the palate.

oh6gdx (22398) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2008
Cask@GBBF2008. Very dark brown colour, close to black, small beigeish brown head, which disappeared quite fast. Wow, so where do I begin? Aroma is raisins and sweet wood along with some vanilla at the first breath-in. The following ones bring a lot of stuff, mild notes of alcohol and chocolate, some slight madeiraish sweetness along with fruityness. Some sweetish sour notes of old coffee. Flavour is about as comples, or maybe even more so. The evident notes are wood, sweet fruits and some spices. All this mixed in with a warming touch of alcohol and some slight notes of smoked wood. Long sweetish caramelly and wooden aftertaste in this beauty. This was beer was a real mindblower, and if the various parts of the mouth picking up flavours could get orgasms, this beer would probably be the one doing it...

Bottled, thanks Marsblursi! hazy dark ruby, rich firm head. Caramelly nose with bourbon and higher alcohols. Seemless soft caramelly body where spun sugar meets grapefruit and bourbon. Really full bodied, still the softness makes it drinkable and pleasant. Whereas the bourbon opens for new experiences it also detracts a little from the seemless malt. Still overwhelming and fantastic.
