Barwa: ciemna, nie przejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana beżowa/ jasno brązowa, niewielka, szybko opadająca, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie niskie. Całość dość oleista. Aromat: złożona mieszanka z burbonem na czele (alkohol i nuty kokosowe), do tego ciemne słody. Wyraźny wpływ leżakowania w beczce. Bajka. Smak: na pierwszym miejscu słodycz, następnie alkoholowość z burbona oraz ciemne słody, świetny balans. Na końcu wyraźny alkoholowy finisz, rozgrzewający przełyk. Trudno uniknąć tu porównań z Anderson Valley - Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Stout, który również był opisywany. Rooie Dop jest leżakowane w beczkach po burbonach: Wild Turkey oraz Buffalo Trace, co wyraźnie czuć. Oczywiście na korzyść. Wprawdzie jest mniej złożone w smaku niż amerykański stout, ale aromat wydaje się być jeszcze bardziej interesujący i czaruje od pierwszego do ostatniego wdechu. Nuta alkoholowa wyraźna, ale wybitnie przyjemna i można się nią upajać przez długi czas. Moim zdaniem warto.

Garrold (1236) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Just about black. Halo of tan head. Aroma is treacle, light cocoa, quality chocolate. All is light and airy, though. Distant booziness. Taste is melted Cadbury Fudge. With boozy fruit. Which is good. Palate is thick, but smooth. Smoky, dry finish. Bitterness at the end ties everything together.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2014
Bottled. Pitch black colour, small brown head. Aroma is powder, bourbon, ripe fruits, liquorice and some mild notes of alcohol. Flavour is raisins, toasted malts, roasted malts as well as some ripe fruits and liquorice. Slight alcohol, but not disturbingly much.

Pours pitch black with a tiny white head. Aroma of buttery bourbon notes, wood, vanilla, oak and roasted malts. Taste is smooth, sweet and buttery with loads of bourbon notes, oak, vanilla and roastiness. Finish is smooth, roasty and woody with notes of bourbon, vanilla and ash. Quite sweet and buttery bourbon aged IS. Okay.

olio (6141) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours jet black color with a small head. Aroma of licorice, vanilla, bourbon notes, mild red wine notes and caramel malts. Flavor is sweet and syrupy, caramel malts, toffee, sugar, dark malts, chocolate and mild bourbon notes. Dry cocoa-dominant palate, lingering sweet caramel finish. Complex but maybe a tad too sweet.

lusikka (6207) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, butter and wooden notes. Rich flavour of roasted malts, butter, bourbon, wood, licorice and grassy bitterness. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Rich and tasty, a bit too straightforward however. The barrel accompanies the flavours quite nicely. Good stuff.

33 cl bottle @ home. Bottled 03.03.2013, bbe 03.03.2038
Aroma has strong bourbon notes; vanilla and wood and quite nothing else. Flavour is strong on vanilla. Also some woody notes, some butter and bourbon. Quite generic bourbon-aged IS. Nothing disturbing here though.

TimE (3145) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 6, 2014
smells like oatmeal, vegetables, with a touch of bourbon. Bourbon is more pronounced in the mouth, moderately sweet malty, full body, roasty, slightly syrupy. Fairly well done, but probably could age a bit longer to dry out.

Dark brown/black colour, nice layer of brown foam. Very complex aroma of roasted malts and bourbon. Light bitter, sweet aftertaste.
