Yellow head, medium, over hazy brown beer. Less vanilla than the Bourbon; has more chocolate, and indeed, wood-oak. Fiery fusels, but at the same time very balanced. Bitter sweet. Aucuba or other dark green leaves. Very well-bodied, oily-viscous. More balanced than the Bourbon version.

75 cl. bottle sampled @ "Er Klopt Iemand Op De Deur" Samson & Gert Bierproeving I. Thanks to Lisa! Tasted side by side: 5 version of Bois: Bourbon BA, Brandy BA, French Oak BA, New American Oak BA & Rye Whiskey BA. Pours hazy reddish brown with spare light brown head only on the sides, same look all five. Taste is similar to Bourbon BA but even sweeter. Molasses, sweet caramel, cereal, lots of brown sugar, dark fruit, sticky toffee, nutmeg, honey, vanilla, lots of vanilla, very sweet, soft fruity toffee sugar. Very thick, very sweet, soft carbonation. My favourite of the 5 versions.

On tap at The Bruery poured into taster. Deep brown color with a fleeting tan head that vanished. Some streaky legs, though. Aroma is toffee, bourbon, vanilla, wood, dark fruits, and booze. Taste is similar with roasty malts and brown sugar sweetness heavy up front. A tiny bit of woody/nutty bitterness comes through. There’s some nice alcohol warming, too. Medium-full bodied, slick textured, low-moderate carbonation, boozy finish. Accidentally filed under Sucre. Original rating 2 Jan 2014.

Bottle. Clear copper amber pour, with a light caramel colored head. Very sweet, toffee, brown sugar, wood, sweet dark fruit, raisin, alcohol, and notes of vanilla. Fairly boozing and warming, but pretty tasty.

Blairgus (2563) - California, USA - JUN 1, 2014
1 June 2014, tap at the Bruery. Brown. Nose is a muted Bois. Some spice and certainly sweet, but hard to pick out individual spices like before. I almost want to say I smell cherries it red fruit, though not sour or tart. Med/full body and mildly fizzy. Has some smoked or woody notes, nutty, stale fruitcake (maybe wood does this to normal Bois). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

May 25, 2014 - bottle from the source. Brown pour with some head. Aroma was nice balance of alcohol, wood, caramel and malt. Taste was consistent with aroma and had a dry alcohol finish. As it warmed, got some dark fruit in the taste. Medium to full body and smooth.
