UPDATED: FEB 11, 2019 A good beer overall, but a little thin on the body for a strong bourbon barrel aged beer. I would like a little more chewiness to balance it. Craft beer store dresden ShivanDragon (5943) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2018

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2018 Bottle. (thanks Eddan) Hazy dark golden with a small head. Sweet with malt, caramel, some oak and some fruit. The body was medium and the finish sweet. Drinkable but not as interesting as expected.

Clear golden. Aroma is surprisingly nothing really bourbon. Some hay melon and malt. Taste is harsh sweet and sour juice. A bit hoppy. Not so great. Nevalainen (1065) - FINLAND - NOV 3, 2018
Hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma of caramel, rum, fruit and winegums. Very good aroma. Taste is medium sweet, notes of caramel and winegums, and rum. A hint of boost in the taste as well. Very complex beer, so you get different impressions the more you drink. Very good.

18-10-2018; bottle; at home (bought online at Beerwulf Webshop, Amsterdam, The Netherlands).
The looks of the beer are nice. I expected a darker beer, but that again not all Bock beers are dark. The colour is a nice golden amber, with on top a small slightly off-white layer of foam with medium foam retention. The beer has a slight cloudiness, but it is still possible to see trough it.
The beer has some nice aromas. There is a nice mellow sweet maltiness, that forms a lovely base. There are some yeast aromas, that contain some butterscotch, that is very nice in this case. It goes perfect with the delicate touches of bourbon, which creates a lovely mellow sweet-sour aroma of vanilla, slightly sour oak and a spicy hint. It is nice and very gentle, but goes well with the original beer aspects.
The taste of the beer is also nice. Medium sweetness and bitterness, and slight sour note of cask-flora and oak. It is well balanced and nice and gentle. Especially that touch of butterscotch, that some might see as a flaw, is really nice in this beer and gives the beer a velvety touch.
The palate of the beer is very nice. Medium body, smooth and a bit creamy and rather high carbonation. The finish of the beer is very nice. Quite some spicy yeasts in there and also a nice oaky note. All in all, a nice beer. A bourbon barrel aged beer that isn't extremely heavy as they sometimes can be (not that I mind that though). BarleyTeam16 (73) - - OCT 17, 2018
Goldtrübe Farbe. Große feine Schaumkrone. Geruch erinnert an Vanille, Erdbeeren. Sehr malziger Geschmack. Erinnert tatsächlich an einen Bourbon Whisky. Sehr spritzig im Antrunk. Borresteijn (8642) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2018

Fadlageret bock, ikke det værste. Sødmen er der, men ikke skarpheden fra alkoholen. Meget god bock.
