3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark brown beer, with a small light brown head. I thin head, wich disapears quickly. The nose is very interessesting, there is a strong smell of Bourbon with wood characteristics, there is also a hinch of some peat, and alcohol, very nice!! A medium bodied beer, with medium to low carbonation. The taste is a bit cramped up, a lot of different tasts at the same time, which a shame. I can find; little roasted malts, Bourbon, peat and alcohol. The aftertaste is very short, it disolves quick, and leaves alcohol, roasted malts and light peated. A beer with an excellent smell, but a slightly disapionting taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour is opaque/almost pitch black, with a small and slightly creamy tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, caramel, leather, coffee, slight tobacco, asphalt, roasted malt, wood, slight smoke, licorice. Really delicious and very well balanced. The taste is a little sweet upfront, with a beautiful roasted bitterness towards the end. Medium bodied, with a semi-flat var carbonation. A little dry, probably from the aging in the bartels. A Big thanks to Jeff for this unexpected treat. - sure is tasty.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 33 cl, pours pitch black with a few disappearing tan bubbles and a nice aroma of cookies, dark chocolate, overripe cherries, toffee and lots of whiskey. The taste is really complex too. Starts out a bit sweet with hints roasted malts, grains, whiskey/bourbon, espresso and dark chocolate. The finish has a very nice lasting hop-bitterness and a sticky whiskey-taste in the mouth. I really love this one!
