Bottle. Rich bourbon aroma with notes of dark fruit and vanilla. Excellent start. Pours extremely dark caramel colored with a thin light brown head and decent lacing. Taste is sweet dark fruit with a hint of vanilla with a lively, highly carbonated mouthfeel. Finishes pretty smooth with a lot of bourbon flavor and a touch of booze. Wonderful.

Douberd (2092) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
Bottle 375 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV. 10% Deep mahogany brown colour on the body, with a huge beige head sitting on top, thick, with great retention. Medium lacing on the glass. Aroma has lots of bourbon, ash, plums, black grapes, light traces of alcohol and vanilla. Taste is mildly sweet, with dark fruits up front, the bourbon more subtle,vanilla. Not very complex, at least not as much as I expected, and a bit boozy, not taste wise but you can feel the alcohol sneaking on you. Medium body, good carbonation. Good beer, requires attention.

Bottle sample in late October. Pours a brown color with reddish highlights and a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malts, dark fruits, obvious bourbon barrel with some vanilla and wood. The alcohol comes through in the flavor a bit and is warming. Not bad, but something didn’t completely work for me with this beer.
