Ok, I really can’t translate in English how much I enjoyed this beer. And to think I was skeptical until that first taste! Beautiful aftertaste, absolutely wonderful. Highly recommended!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg pour at NH Brewfest. Appearance is light brown, no sparkle, off-white head with decent retention and fair lacing. Aroma is moderately roasted malts. Taste is also moderately sweet roasted maltiness with some alcohol. Palate is light-to-medium with light texture and average to lively carbonation and finish is long, moderately sweet. Overall, I didn’t get the effect of the bourbon barrel aging but this was good nonetheless.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a small head. Very smooth taste of malt, oak, vanilla and bourbon. Very good but could use "a little more of everything". ;-) [backlog]

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013 Vintage. Sampled thanks to Kraddel @ Rampkrot. Deep amber, little head. Nose is oxidized bourbon mixed with very cheap candy, heavy sugar & strong soda-like quality with some caramel. Taste is a bit akin to a fizzy soda / softdrink mixed with bourbon, oxidation, basic sweet sugar, caramel, cheap candy, a bit watery, fizzy, touch honey, toffee. Thinned out, tad watery, fizzy. Weird, possible ravages of time. Very odd, not sure if I like it or hate it. Deeply flawed. A puzzling mistake of sorts, probably better fresh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013 version, thnx to an awesome trader (if only I could remember names) . Pours redcopper, clear, small layer of white foam. Smell is sweet, grains, like a BW. Bourbon. Taste is Bit bitter, sharp grains. Bit sweet, hints of bourbon. Pretty weak base. Bourbon lives next to the base, but doesn’t blend in too well.

Bottle to glass. Pours a deep amber light brown color with a small light tan head. Basically a weak english barleywine with a touch of spice and a faint bourbon character. Not terrible.
