COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quadrupel barrel aged on Bourbon barrels. Nice malty taste with notes of dark chocolate and dark fruits. The barrel aging gives a nice warmth from the alcohol as well as a nice aroma of vanilla.

lusikka (6874) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
375 ml bottle @ WPBF 2013.
Pours a dark brown colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, bourbon and some caramel. Flavour of sweet caramel malts, bourbon, grassy hops and yeast. Full bodied and oily mouthfeel. Finishes sweet, bourbon-like and yeasty. The raspberry version was much, much better. This one is way too yeasty and messy.

Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Sour wet wood and emulsion paint nose. Not great! Smooth palate, airy with mild carbonation. Milky bourbon, trace of sourness. Whisper of paint. Soft semi dry finish. Okay, a bit clunky.

McNeillR (1609) - SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Wet tobacco, light pepperiness. Brown ale body, touch of sedimenty cloud. Frothy tan head. Tickle of chalky sourness, peppery edge to middle and little bourbon before the finish. Taught and dry but not terribly boozy. Not close to the Red Wine vibe at all.

Bottle, Sighthill Tasting

37,5 cl bottle @ wPBF’13
Aroma has bourbon notes, vanilla and malt. Flavour has stinging alcohol, some raisins, sweet malt, vanilla and bourbon. Much better than the raspberry version.

JohnnyJ (4788) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle at oakquinox 2013. Brown pour, with an off white head. Heavy barrel character, bourbon, raisin, caramel, a bit of chocolate, and a strange sour apple acidity. Not great.

Leighton (13373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to Jack and his drunken impulse buys! Pours dark brown with a fine beige head. Rich raisins in here. Big sweetness, some alcohol. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately warming to finish with dry raisins and dark bread. Very good stuff overall, even if my rating doesn’t reflect the goodness.
