Bottle. Hazy golden with medium off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is of caramel, light bourbon, fruity notes, malty. Taste is moderately sweet and about the same as aroma. Very pleasant

Garlic_of_Doom (571) - SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2015
2012 vintage. Pours murky orange with a small white head. Aroma is sweet, sugary, fresh, slightly yeasty with slight vanilla. Taste is above but with evident hop bitterness, followed by bourbon and wood at the end. Full bodied with low and soft carbonation, smooth and too easy to drink.

I probably said that for lots of beer, but the first aroma remind me of cheese. Not a big fan of bourbon, so not a fan of the beer even is the taste is not as strong as the one found in bourbon. Aftertaste is mainly the 10% of alcohol. Again, not a bad beer, but definitely not the kind I would recommend ’cause not my type.

hawthorne00 (2881) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2015
2012 bottle. Amber with an off white head. Aroma of oranges, apricots, toffee, bubblegum, vanilla, a little smoke (these 3 are bourbon, right?), spiced bread. Manages to be creamy textured despite almost being stickily sweet. Fruitcake batter, oranges, dark sugars. Layers of caramelised fruit lightened by oranges and spices. Not quite as vibrantly fruity as the normal version but very lovely with the bourbon barrel not trampling on the show. Dangerously cheerful.

Subtle aroma of hazelnut. In the mouth: hazelnut. Creamy texture. Alcohol is dominant. Not my favorite struise.

Jeroenhensen (231) - Dongen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2015
Een mooi belgische bier gedronken in Breda bij zeezicht. Het bier slaat snel dood, maar heeft toch een lekkere sterke kruidige kerst bier smaak, die door de bourbon goed drinkbaar is en lekker zacht is.

Humlehode (311) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2015
Pours golden, white, fluffy head. Weak aroma. Semi-dry. Taste of caramel, chocolate, bread crumb. Quite oaky, especially the after taste. Slightly astringent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
