Ibrew2or3 (8493) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 14, 2013
50cl bottle picked up at the De Molen bottle shop pours with a clear copper body that harbors tiny floaties and supports a tall billowing light tan head of foam. the first whiff of the aroma was pure sweet bourbon and vanilla and nothing else. A few more drags hints at brown sugar, prune and raisin like esters. Well, those notes are faint but the booze, bourbon and vanilla are not. Wow, the taste is sadly similar with sweet vanilla and bourbon and really very little else. I guess at least the booziness is smooth and isnt coming across hot or harsh. That said I wish there was more balance and more of the base beer coming through. If Im getting beneath the barrel treatment I seem to be getting sweet raisins, prunes and a black pepper note. Too much barrel time for my taste.

jackl (7561) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Keg @ Borefts 2012. The pours light hazy golden orange wwith a small head. The nose is of apple cider, some sweet bourbon and a splash of wood barrel. Forest fruit sweetness. The taste is soft apricot, more berry, borbon and caramel. Vanilla flavors. Boozy but not oppressively so. A restrained barrel treatment. Pretty tasty stuff.

larsga (7470) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2013
Small offwhite head. Hazy amber body with huge floaties and carbonation. Dried fruit vanilla aroma with bubble gum notes. Dry-sweet dried fruit and bubble gum vanilla taste with alcoholic notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dry dried fruit and vanilla aftertaste with grassy bitter notes. Really interesting, but a bit strong and sharp. (0.5l bottle, shared by Ole_R.)

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle at 1st Borefts Beer Festival.
Excellent clean gold with a good white head and lace. Aroma is amazing. Fruit a plenty, really good sugary notes and some excellent barrelly notes. The flavour is equally brilliant. Soft and sweet, beautiful apples and tropical fruit. Unusual juicy yet dry feel. Excellent barrelly character and gorrrrrrgeous booze in the very lengthy finish. Not my best rate but this is one of Davey and Glenns best.

Flaske 500ml spandert av Rune. Delt med ham og djoeye i WCveien 1 Feb 15. Smhissig. Gylden. Uklar. Hyt tett skum som flater helt ut. Litt lacing. Lett st alkoholisk aroma. Smaken er mandler. Blir svakt syrlig etter hvert.
