ClubGonzo (5467) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2016
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Cloudy deep brown body, medium short-lasting white head. Nose is caramel, bourbon, vanilla, raisins, nuts, wood and hints of toffee, dark sugars, chocolate, deep malts, sweet goat’s cheese and burnt sugar. Taste is chocolate, nuts, caramel, toffee and hints of burnt sugar, alcohol, raisins and sweet goat’s cheese. Medium to light body, medium to high carbonation. Not bad - the aroma is and the oxidation has created some interesting flavors, but the lack of body and somewhat dulled flavors has left this beer in a state likely less fascinating than it was in its younger days.

Pours murky brown. Aroma is so bourbon forward. Sweet Candi sugar melds with the bourbon to give off a chocolate vanilla smell. Taste of chocolate ice cream, super sweet that is balanced with a bitterness and dry fizzy finish. Really nice brew.

Had it on draught at Vlc on Tap (Valencia, Spain). Sweet apricot with a nice round finish reminiscent of its barrel aging. Marries very well with meat dishes.
