HEAVEN HILL BOURBON BOCK 2013, barrel-aged: Dunkler, röstmalzbetonter Doppelbock mit 21% Stammwürze. Um dem Bier zusätzliche, individuelle Aromen zu verleihen, reiften wir es sieben Monate in einem Kentucky-Bourbon Whiskey-Fass der Heaven Hill Distillery nach. In der Nase komplexe Aromenvielfalt nach feiner Röstmalzsüße, Gewürzpotpourri und Vanille. Am Gaumen schlank und trocken, Bitterschokolade und Gewürze. Eleganter Abgang nach Röstnoten, Hopfen und Vanille. Whiskey- und Vanillearomen aus dem Fass vermählen sich mit dem Bier zu einem einzigartigen Geschmackserlebnis. Ideal zu Wildgerichten und Süßspeisen. Zutaten: Wasser, Gerstenmalz, (Münchner Malz, dunkles Karamellmalz), Hopfen (Tettnang, Tettnanger), untergärige Brauhefe.

kappldav123 (5713) - GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015
Had this with 10,7% ABV. Bottle looks really, really good. Beer in the glass dark brown, small head. Intense malty-alcoholic aroma. Starts very strong, sharp, quite alcoholic. Roasty notes, modest spicy-woody. Finish still very strong, alcoholic. Goes down burning. Not a every-day beer. But okay.

Erzengel (6723) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2015
* 75cl for 13,49€. Röstmalzig-dickflüssiger Dunkler Bock. Intensiv, Trockenpflaumen, Schokolade. Dabei eine sehr interessant angenehme Vanille-Burbon-Note. Holzige Anklänge, trotzdem leicht und fruchtig. Ein bisschen alkoholisch. Tolle Vanille mit dunklem röstigen Bock. Fantastisch!

bierkoning (11678) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2015
Corked bottle. Dark brown color. Malt, caramel, roast, vanila, chocolate and bourbon in the complex aroma. Malty sweet caramelly alcoholic flavor. Vanilla, red fruit, bourbon. Raw around the edges but pleasant.

750 ml bottle as Nikl-Bräu Bourbon Bock 2013. #365/400. BB 23/04/2018. Thanks to Timo A! Clear amber colour with a tiny off-white head. Jägermeister and cough medicine in the aroma. The flavour is berries, tartness, herbs and some red wine. No good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Miksu (5033) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2013
0.75 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Dark amber color. Pungent smoky and oaky aroma with Islay type peat smoke, tar, vanilla. Sweet, tart, tarry, peaty and smoky flavor. Somewhat surprisingly, tastes more like a Islay whisky than bourbon, lots of peat, iodine and tar. Interesting to analyze bot not so tasty.

lusikka (7624) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2013
750 ml bottle, thanks Timo A. Pours a dark amber colour with a white head. Aroma is very interesting; strong tar, birch, spruce and grass. Flavour of strong bready malts, loads of tar, syrup, cinnamon, red berries, birch, spruce, herbs and mint. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Barrel is there, but not too strong. Nice one and really unique.

olio (8470) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2013
75 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours hazy mahogany color with a small head. Aroma is very strong with tar, some peat also, some clove, spices and caramel malts. Flavor of ripe fruits, caramel malts, some tar, smoky notes, some bourbon and wood. Somewhat sourish palate, dry finish. Quite overwhelming tar on the nose, the taste is not bad either. Not your typical doppelbock.

laiti (7789) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2013
75 cl bottle @ Timo A. #3661400, BBE 23.04.2018
Aroma is odd with tar, some juniper notes and tart berries. Also some smoke, peaty notes and vanilla. Flavour has strong herbal notes, bourbon and spices. Also some citrus, woody notes and tart berries. Finishes with weak whisky sting. Reminds me of some overspicy christmas ales.
