gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 9, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2014 500 ml bottle at home. Barreled on Wild Turkey and/or Maker’s Mark I reckon. Anyhow - it’s good! Vanilla, tart fruit and fruity barrel notes (chestnut, caramel...). Nice medium body, a tad alcohol heat, but rich flavours.

Bottled. Pours amber with a small, laicing beige head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, dried fruit, vanilla, wood and bourbon notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with alcohol notes. Medium to full bodied, oily to syrupy texture and soft carb. An excellent barley.
