2013 orange wax bottle pours a dark hazy brown with an off white head. Bourbon and oak really take over the taste of the base beer. Sweet malts vanilla and dark fruit taste.

Oaky reddish brown. Very minor head. Lots of pear and apple nose. Vanilla with pineapple and a minor oak presence. Caramel as well. Very nice balance. Really coats the tongue. Very nice bitterness. Lots of oak, apples and what I imagine cedar would taste like. I get some tree fruit and walnuts at the finish.

Bottle thanks to rxeight - 2013 vintage, orange wax -- shared with AJ and friend. Pours cloudy hazel with a small tan head and decent lacing. Aroma is quite strong, lots of dark sugars, toffee, molasses, date, raisin, bourbon. Flavor is medium sweet and only lightly bitter -- surprisingly different than the non BA version -- a fair amount of wood tannins as well. Medium body, kinda tongue coating. Really good, and a world different from the base beer.

From the 22 ounce bottle. Nice nose. Some bourbon throughout. Sweet. Brown sugar in finish and overall taste. Nice.

75cl, Vintage 2013 (Orange wax), Bottle 377/1696, no mention of ABV, exclusive American brew, thx to Secret Santa!, very complex brew, alcoholic/sweet and slightly woody/fruity, yet not too heavy, balanced, cloudy, small head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

Bottle shared by The Hoff @ Armin’s - slightly hazy light brown pour. Nose is slightly malty and highly bourbon. Taste is pretty harsh - strong bourbon oak and hops.
