Huubs (142) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2012
Tap@BBF2012. Amberkleurig met witte kop. Smaak is lichtzoet met hout, hooi, sinaasappel, vanille, caramel en vooral ook bourbon. Eindigt een beetje bitter. Gezien de namen vd makers had ik iets meer verwacht. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brokensail (11612) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours a clear amber color with a white head. Weird aroma of straw, wood, booze, and floral hops. Surprisingly, somewhat bland. A little vanilla and citrus, some sweet caramel as well. The flavor is sweet and boozy with some wood, hints of vanilla, floral hops, and grass. A fair amount of caramel and toffee malt, but overshadowed by the other flavors.
