Bottle courtesy of Glenn at the brewery. Thanks! A: Deep orange color with an edge head and little lacing. S: Subtle aroma of whisky with notes of caramel, butterscotch and light smoke. T: Flavor starts sour, then orange peel and coriander show up. Sour. Bourbon is subtle, mostly evident in the finish. M: Good body. D: Superb, to be sought after. Can’t wait to see more variants.

Piana skąpa i taka pozostaje do końca. Kolor bursztyn wpadający w czerwień klarowny (po dolaniu zmętnienie). Aromat intensywna wanilia i dębina, lekko słodki i dziki, bardzo przyjemny. Smak słodycz, pełnia słodowa, w kontrze dzikość i niewielka orzeźwiająca kwaskowatość, (w żadnym przypadku to nie jest piwo kwaśne). Wyraźna beczka z dębiną i wanilią, belgijskie owoce, brzoskwinie, rodzynki, goryczka wyczuwalna odpowiednia, alkohol jedynie ten szlachetny, bourbon. Piwo niesłychanie złożone, wszystko gra, smaki sie przenikają. Kolejne WOW

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 Glenn’s best.

17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Small bottle thanks to GlennC! Wow, I can already tell I’m going to love this, these are my favorite types of beers. Pours a clear bright orange with a fine fizzy white bubbly froth. Aroma is fantastic! bright juicy orange tangerine, very bright, notes of vanilla with a great bourbon note, love it! Flavor is same but just a tad hot, juicy tangerine, very bourbon forward which is fine by my, has enough bright citrus to make it really nicely offset. Medium/light bodied with sharp carbonation a bit sugary. I really really really love this beer!

harrisoni (19534) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2009
Bottle at 1st Borefts BF 09. Subtle vanilla bourbon aroma. That’s really good. Flavour of the beer still comes through with a lovely vanilla edge and touch of bourbon on finish. It’s one of the best bourbon barrel beers I’ve had. Davy and Glen said that they wanted something a bit more subtle than some barrel aged beers and they have got it just right for my taste at least. Lovely bit of candied/sour/tangerine/orange fruit comes through on the swallow. Beer of the day for me (apart from the Dirty Horse of course).
