2012 vintage. Aroma of malts, yeast, caramel, sugar, apricots, wood, light bourbon, light spices. Flavour is big sweetness, malty and sugary. Alcohol is not obvious. Wonderfully refined taste and impressively well-balanced.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes oranges Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig, röstig, dunkles reifes Obst. Geschmack röstmalzig, stark malzig, überreife Früchte, Karamell.

Slightly hazy orange with medium off white head. Aroma sweet malt, wood, citrusy candied fruits. Full body with strong somewhat unpleasant alcohol. Flavor is pretty bourbon-like, with some wood and yeast and malt. Some decent flavors in here but thought the alcohol came through too harshly.

Botella de 33 cl en beni casa bar, de zombier en octubre de 2012. tsj no. 11. Vintage 2011. cuerpo fuerte e intensos sabores con 10 vol q se notan en todo momento. Sabores de bourbon bastante intensos con los característicos toques dulces y de maderas empapadas con buena sensación de licor. Muy buena.

Hazy orange colour. A little wood and sweet bourbon come through in the aroma. Texture is quite thick and rich also a bit sticky. Nice mix of bready yeast, dried fruits and malt. Bourbon barely traceable in the flavour but overall a very tasty beer.

Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Aroma kleur licht troebel bier met gist. Aroma wat gist verder haal ik er niks uit. Smaak is wat zuur met licht bittere afdronk. Geheel blijft wel even hangen.

Flesje gedeeld met bryanvdv. Amberkleurig met gistdeeltjes en mistig met ren stabiele fijne schuimkraag. Geur is fruitig met gist beetje appeltaart. smaak is volzoet met een royale afdronk, de bourbon is niet overdreven duidelijk aanwezig.

Bottiglia. Bel colore ambrato tendente all’arancione. Bella schiuma cremosa, al naso si sente la melassa, la prugna, l’uvetta e il lieve etilico del bourbon. In bocca è densa, calda, avvolgente nella sua dolcezza, che però alla lunga ho trovato un pò stucchevole. Birra da condividere con gli amici con una bella tavoletta di cioccolato fondente.

Sevenlee (1302) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2014
Pours a cloudy brown colour with a beige head. Aroma is malt, caramel, dark fruit, bourbon and woody notes. Taste is medium sweet leading to a bit of a boozy finish with some woody notes. Really good but I was hoping for something just a little more for the price.
