omhper (23324) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2016
Bottled at TNOD(U)RBSG2016. Cloudy copper/brown, mid sized head. Vanilla and caramel fights alcohol in the aroma. Sweet with full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Caramel and coconut, lots of alcohol. Brandy and vanilla leads the way to a fiercely warming finish.

martin00sr (2700) - Haderslev, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2016
TNOD(U)RBSG16. Murky amber, small offwhite head. Aroma has wood and dried fruit. Hints of vanila. Sweet, woody flavour, quite alcoholic. The bourbon is quite evident. Fruity, bitter and dry. Nice sipper - gets better and better.

Beerhunter111 (16484) - Hasborn, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2016
Sampled @ Danish Ratebeer Summer Gathering 2016, Saturday, Day 2

75cl bottle. Pours hazy dark orange golden colour with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet ripe fruits, vanilla and wood. Taste of very sweet ripe fruits, vanilla, caramel, a bit boozy, good!

Benzai (13678) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2016
Sampled from bottle @ Danish Ratebeer Gathering 2016, Ulfborg, Day 2. Hazy dark orange to reddish color, small off-white to beige head. Aroma is heavily barrel aged: I was reminded of cognac initially but it isn’t sweet enough for that I guess, so bourbon makes more sense. Aroma is also sweet, malty, slightly leaves, some caramel. Solid. Taste malts, again quite some barrel aging in there, wood, oak, slight tart from the barrel, quite bitter, some alcohol. Aroma beats the flavor I would say. Heavy. Solid, but not one of my favorites.

Koelschtrinker (16811) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2016
Süßer Antrunk, der sich nach kurzer Zeit fängt und angenehm trocken wird. Bitter-getreidig, süffig, geringe Herbe. Die Trockenheit gefällt, vollmundig, wenig alkoholisch. 10/11/10/11/8/11
