3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. As Shire Stout Whiskey Barrel. It pours a huge, light beige colored head that leaves lacings. The beer is dark brown in color, clear looking and with aromas of dark chocolate dominating. Some dried fruits and a hint of booze as well. Coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts and a boozy hint in the mouth, full-bodied and with a pleasant carbonation. Lasting roasted finish with chocolate, coffee and some whiskey. Surprisingly, this is even more boring than the regular edition, although marginally. 140530

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle Appearance: Unclear black colour, beige head. Aroma: roasted malts, coffee, hocolate licorice,,oak and some boozyness
Taste: Roasted malts some chocolate and some coffee with quite some licorice notes. Littel hints of oak, and quite some boozy alcohol in the finish.
medium body (thin for it’s style) above average (slighly over)carbonated.
Not as good as the non barrel aged version, too much of hit and miss in the tastes and palae is a bit off.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Weinig geur. Iets fris. Raar. Ik reuk afwas middel.
Weinig schuim. Mooi zwart.
Begin stroperig daarna waterig. Chocola bitter, nasmaak heel ver weg koffie.
Ik vind hem na een tijdje stinken. Ook kwa smaak mis ik erg veel. Geen goede stout dus!
