3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at ōltorget Mathallen, march 8th 2013. one of a kind for me, different to any other beer Iíve had. It has a hazy dark gold en body with a huge white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, banana, vanilla and bourbon. Works a lot better than one might think. Taste starts acidic, has a strong caramel and banana presence, with orange, roasted malt and wheat. Quite complex, Iím sure thereís stuff going on here passing me by too. Finish is fruity, banana, and vanilla.

750ml Bottle purchased from Beercraft pours a hazy golden color with a thick head. Very strong bourbon flavors that dispel after it's had a chance to breath. Well balanced Belgian yeast taste. A great beer to have with a cigar.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big boy from Samís, Durham. I have to confess that Iím now often afraid of the Bruery beers, not just for their forbidding prices but for their forbidding ABV. Modest relief to see that this one was *only* 11.5, but still required several sessions of effort to dispatch it. Hazy orange-gold pour, deep and thick head, potent looking overall. Strong caramel and coconut in the aroma, not much of the Mischief comes through at all. Hot as hell on the palate, and heavily syrupy too (thank goodness for a reasonable degree of carbonation, to liven things up a bit). Flavors are overwhelmingly hot and sweet, and I found it overwhelming.

Bottle thanks to thome50, pours a hazy golden/orange with a large white head. Aroma is very floral with coconut, vanilla, and sweet oak notes. The bourbon comes on strong a first but is mellowed my coconut and vanilla. Interesting and enjoyable.
