COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Launch into the exquisite flavors of bourbon with splashes of vanilla. Watch for currents of dark chocolate and dried fruit. Generous amounts of hops and malts make for a smooth journey from start to finish. Decadent desserts and aged cheeses make superb companions.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2009
Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is very sweet wtih strong notes of over ripe fruits and prunes as well as medium notes of wood and light notes of bourbon. The flavor is very sweet with notes of over rip fruits, wod, and bourbon, towards the finish the bourbon becomes very powerful - too powerful for my liking. The alcohol burns the tongue.

A pretty beer - clear dark red - brown with a nice light tan head. Oaky vanilla nose. Light soft palate, semi dry. Everything presents at once with this beer - vanilla oak, orangey hop bitterness, aniseed alcohol, creamy malt, tangy fresh orange marmalade. Well joined up. Semi dry and soft finish, Nice!

fiulijn (14599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
Corked bottle; bottled on 03/23/11
Dark amber color with a magnificent red, mahogany hue, and a creamy head. The aroma is very nice, with vanilla and fruity hops, deep but balanced. Good body strength, without being overwhelming; very strong caramel flavor, some fudge and toffee, a bit buttery too (but this is probably the cask), with powerful hopping, that is also quite resiny; evident oak presence. Excellent.
