18.02.2016, 0,75l bottle shared @ BBGTC tasting:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is very mild and balanced, yet it?s not a wow experience; weeds, dark malts, vanilla, minerals, oak, chocolate, caramel, nuts, bark, dark sugar. Taste is slightly dry boozy, weeds, dark malts, minerals, caramel, chocolate, oak, vanilla, alcohol, nuts, mild bourbon. Medium bitterness, slightly mineraly mouthfeel. Nice and very balanced, but not fantastic...

75 cl bottle (from an IP trade with richiesd) @ home, shared with caesar, borresteijn & MarcodL. Pours a deep brown color. Off white head, short retention. Aromas: full on bourbon, sweet, vanilla, caramel, really nice. Flavor is sweet, a bit boozy, hints of marzipan. Fairly strong alcohol feel and rather full bodied. Long finish. Wonderful, much nicer than the base beer.
