weihenweizen (3132) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Refrigerated 0.5 L brown 2013 bottle corked and capped poured into a snifter. Translucent dark brown with crimson highlights and with very little off-white head. Aroma is nice caramel bourbon, medium body, syrupy texture, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is caramel, bourbon, some booze, and some oak. It seems I prefer this to the Brandy version. Heavy and Gets quite boozy as it warms.

Found some old ratings on paper from an unknown date... was probably the 2009 vintage. Thanks Mike. Pours to a very murky brown body with no head. The aroma is strongly English malts and hops. Almost like English walnuts meets a light cigar tobacco. The flavor is strongly English malts with a very light hop and nice bourbon. Tons of caramelization. Creamy medium-full caramel body with a subtle alcohol.
