2005 and 2009 opened beside each other. Caramelized malts, melted sugars mixed with bourbon, mild boozy profile massages my throat after I swallow. Bit more bourbon in the '05 than the '09, yet both are excellent. I dig.

Bottle. Pours ruby red/brown with a small tan head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, vanilla, caramel and toffee. Flavor was slightly sweet with caramel, raisins, vanilla, bourbon, oak, dark fruit, and had a nice dry warming alcohol finish. Medium body, light carbonation, syrupy texture.

Pour - deep brown. No head. Aroma - caramel and cookies Mouth - velvet Taste - hints of toffee and booze. Really balanced. Might be the smoothest BBA I have had. Bourbon shows through in a good way. Overall - this beer is really balanced and amazing.

500 ML bottle bought at Apex in Portland Dark mahogany color with a fast fading off white head that sits at a collar. Nose is bourbon, brown sugar, vanilla, and fig. Not nearly as sweet and sticky as the brandy version. Taste is oak, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate and fig. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Not sweet, sticky, or port like as the brandy version was. Much more reserved and slightly thinner. Still brilliant though

Drar parallellt bot en Brandy-variant. Årgång 2009. Kraftig bourbon i doften. Lite spritig men ton av champinjon. Positivt oxiderad. Söt och lite nötig men otippat tunn. Inget som stör dock.

adnielsen (9279) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle @ Steve’s Super Bowl party. Pours a cloudy orangish brown appearance with a fizzy brown head. Heavy caramel and chocolate aroma. Some oak and whiskey as well. Dessert nose. Not nearly as sweet or goopy flavor as the brandy release. Booze is held in check a lot better. Fair amount of sweetness but not overwhelming. This was much more enjoyable and drinkable to me then the brandy version. Potentially a touch muted but good.

Pour is translucent brown with a small tan head. Aroma is heavy on the bourbon with notes of oak, vanilla, and caramel. Flavor is moderately sweet with the booze and bourbon coming through the strongest. Syrupy with little carbonation.
