Bottle, 6.6%. Papery aroma. Clear copper colour. Small stable white head. The flavour has a distinct vanilla touch, but does not get too much. Not sweet either. The bitterness is assertive, bordering on rough, but does not get too much and balances off the vanilla quite well. Bamsen78 (5668) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2018
Bottle. Pours nearly clear amber with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with some farty notes and touches of barrel. Bitter, hoppy flavour with sweetish notes of caramel malt and yeast and notes of barrel. Lingering, hoppy and malty afteraste. Not bad for the style. Iznogud (4991) - CROATIA - FEB 3, 2018
Bottle, 330 ml, courtesy of JFK10000. Shared with him and Max. Pours orange with medium white head. Malty, grainy, not really getting bourbon. Oak, some acidity. Sweet. Bit boozy. Medium bodied. Weird. MonsterMagnet (1684) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2018
Bottle from secret Santa, cheers hauxe! Pours a clear orange with a white head. Nose is malty, with marzipan, light bourbon, grains. Taste follows with light citrus. It's all quite light and not very remarkable. It is enjoyable though. Sircatis (368) - FRANCE - JAN 26, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2018 Achetée au E-Center. Bière dorée à la fine mousse. Nez de fer et malt. Bouche ronde avec une petite amertume. Pas trop mal mais pas géniale.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear golden with a small, white head. Nose has subtle, sweet Bourbon. Rich, malty body if not exactly Bockish - I don't know if the barrel thinned out the body somewhat. Hint of tartness, discreet bitterness. I feared a cloying sugar soup which it is far from, but it's not really.....anything. And the Bourbon impact is somewhat disappointing. 230118 Erasmus_ro (3258) - Alabama, USA - JAN 20, 2018
Bottle, 06/01/18. Pours a dark orange with a decent, beige head. Aroma is grainy, pale malts, some slight hint of bourbon. Taste is plenty malty, deep pale malt flavor. Slight honey, bread. Some bourbon with vanilla and oak. Tayeth (712) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2018
Angenehmer Geruch nach Honig, Aprikose und Vanille. Geschmack mit einer starken Vanille-Komponente, ein bisschen wie ein Sahnebonbon. Sehr lecker. gueuze (1016) - - JAN 18, 2018
Orange, trüb. Geruch nach Mandarine und Vanille. Im Geschmack restsüß, sehr vanillig. Erinnerungen an Rosinen. Bitter zum Ende, aber weniger Hopfenbitter, mehr adstringierend. ElDesmadre (4446) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 28, 2017
Bottle, February 2017. Coconut and vanilla throughout, this beer tastes literally like white oak juice. Some hoppy pineapple notes, giving this one a pina colada feel. Sweet aroma and taste. The bock seems to have evaporated, as the oak and the hops reign supreme but this doesn't matter, as the final result is excellent.
