Very dark reddisch brown like black in the glass. A bit hard to smell. Roasted malts, some wood and liqour. Not bad at all! Nice surprise. Good coffee at the end. Had to play a bit with the score for this one, cause the smell and looks didn’t match the taste for me.

Sampled draft @ Borefts 2013. Black with no head. Nose is huge sweet honey, thick, sweet, thick caramel, malts, oak, chocolate, coffee,… Taste is thick sweet brown honey, NZ honey, sweetish malts, huge vanilla, thick chocolate bars, thick malts, oak, coffee, faint bourbon. Very creamy. Bit less complex than the regular version. Luckily even thicker & richer flavour here, wowza, lived up to the awesomeness I expected.

@Borefts. I usually don’t like beers with honey, but this one was amazing. The use of bourbon results in a delicious smooth flavor of vanilla.
