Renobob (888) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 28, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Couleur foncée, peu de CO2, alcool et sucre très présent. Maltée à fond. Sucre finalement un peu trop présent. Belle finale sur le fût.

A thick head of foam quickly vaporized into a tobacco-stained pencil mustache of foamy rime. Deeply inhaling the vapor immediately flooded my frontal lobe with adjectives and my primitive midbrain with a myriad long-forgotten flavor associations and memories. Free association seems like the only way to properly document this experience: Christmas pudding Christmas tree Overripe pineapples. Well worn Leather briefcases. Clove cigarettes. Hickory woodsmoke. Fat back. Mussels covered in delta mud. Wet yew tree bark. A fresh cherry twig in the mouth. Held, not chewed. Wet chewed stogie. Burnt milk and creme brulee Carmelized coffee beans Sipping sherry. A stroll through the dockside streets of Porto along the warehouses. Just an entirely trippy experience and a testament to the skill of the evil geniuses at DSB for being able to evoke such turgid emotion and florid imagination from a sip of the ungodly nectar that they teased out of water, grain and the rich ether of experience and skill. Very highly recommended.

ruigo (1270) - PORTUGAL - DEC 25, 2014
33cl bottle. Hazy reddish brown colour with a small and thin off-white head. Dried fruits, raisins, caramel, figs and yeast notes in the aroma. Soft carbonation and full to medium body. Taste is complex, a bit more sweet but with medium bitterness. Overall, a very good beer.

GSAP (529) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2014
Aroma van kruidenlikeur, hout, cassis en zelfs wijn. Smaak is eveneens kruidenlikeur, zelfs de scherpte zit erin (dé bourbon), cacao, ingemaakte rozijnen, caramel en een nasmaak wat boterzacht zacht is met pittig randje van tabak. Aangenaam en plezant in de mond. Kraag minimaal met laag Co2. Niet heel complex, maar heerlijk winterbier. 2012 versie.

teorn88 (3100) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Backlog rating. 33cl bottle form Etre Gourmet. It pours a hazy brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet and tart, with notes of yeast esters, vanilla pod, ripe banana and mango, wood, leather. Taste has sweet malts with noticeable yast and wood notes. Bourbon, alcohol, spices, pepper, almonds, toffee. Full bodied with silky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Was expecting some bolder flavors from this beer

Inbreak (2433) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2014
15.12.2014, 0,33l bottle (2013 vintage) @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet fruity, dried dark fruits, yeast, dark sugar, rye, caramel, grass, almond cake, minerals. Taste is slightly dry mineraly, grass, alcohol, rye, minerals, dried dark fruits, dark sugar, burnt caramel, yeast, citrus peel, oak. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough. Wouldn’t really say I feel the bourbon aging in this one...

mschaefer (26) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2014
Flesje 33cl reserva 2013 tht nov 2019 op 8°C. Koperkleurig bier met romig beige schuim dat vrij snel weer zakt. Aroma geeft een vleugje cassis, vanille en alcohol. Mooie volle licht zoete smaak. De houtsmaak is subtiel maar prettig aanwezig. Afdronk is droog, mooi bitter, verwarmend en langdurig, hier komt de 10% naar boven. Dit bier is heel mooi in balans.

Ulysse (149) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2014
Interesting aftertaste for a beer aged in bourbon barrels. Taste gets more and more interesting as it lingers in the mouth.

Bière très bien équilibré. Goût typique de la brasserie struise. L’arrière goût de bourdon est très présent et la rends différente
