pour is a murky dirty copper brown with a tight beige head and fair amount of lace. The nose is actually a rough, notes of bourbon and some cardboard. Rather malty, chocolate and toffee and some stale hop, very messy. Taste is heavy malt, roast and chocolate, notes of bourbon but light. Almost no heat, very little balance. Full bodied, a touch chalky, light carbonation. The malts are overpowering and unpleasant.

Bottle. The next Wooden Hell! Pours a caramel clear color with a slight tan head. Caramel aroma, slight hops, and a little barrel. Slight booze note. Med mouthfeel. Less flavorful than I would have expected. Light caramel, hops in the back, back end just has a slight alcohol bite. Not gray but not bad either.

Tasting at Papsø’s
Cloudy amber color, small head. The aroma shows both some oak aging (vanilla) and dust.; light cheese and fruits. Sweet malt flavor, caramel, some fudge; wood; the bitterness in the end is a bit odd.
Good, but some weirdness here.
