Complex aroma, marmelade, bourbon, vanille, gedroogd fruit, marsmellows en een beetje nagellak. De afdronk is zoet en droog, zodat het niet plakkerig wordt.

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.

Alengrin (5722) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
Bourbon barrel-aged Melchior, very limited. Thick, creamy head over a deep copper beer with orange hue, hazy. Complex sweet and spicy bouquet, appetizing, white grapes, gooseberry, pear, vanilla, pepper, cloves, candi syrup and indeed bourbon, wood. Fruity, full taste, apricot, pear, grapes, caramelly and honeyish malt sweetness, becoming more complex in the finish with tannins, woody dryness, floral hops and agreeable, whisky-like alcohol warmth. The wood ageing clearly did this beer good, a very fine barley wine this is.

Hazy amber with a huge white head. Gushing out of the bottle in fact. Smoke, tanninnes, vanilla, alcohol, Port., spices. Full body. Nice finish, Port like

Bullit (4686) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle @ Borefts Beer Festival 2009. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of sweet malts, bourbon, alcohol. Flavour has sweet malts, bourbon and a slight sourness. Alcohol noticable. Very good stuff.
