Habanero (4515) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2014
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.

sebletitje (9910) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle sample @ 19de Internationale BierHappening, Zottegem. Thanks Glenn. Orange/cuivre trouble, col est blanc et fin. Arme est effectivement plein de Bourbon,bouquet garde un ct gnreux belge dans un style belge forte avec un malt confrant une pointe biscuit. Palais est rchauffant, sucre lger roux, profile restant trs belge dans son approche plus que un barley wine comme on les imagine avec le Bourbon qui enveloppe tout le palais, ici le bois reste subtile. Lalcool est bien prsent et rchauffe le palais et garde ce fini malt caramel sur un beau ptillant. Bois est subtile, avec un profile fruit pche ferment qui indique la base de Melchior. Pointe houblonne vient en fin de bouche et contribue subtilement lajout trs discret dune amertume fleuri. Pas mauvaise, mais l on drive un peu de loriginal Melchior qui perd ici quasi toute la prsence de graine de moutarde.

Bottle kindly shared by OleR. Malty sweet, very rich oaky character. Moe vanilla and wood than whiskey. A wood aging showcase.
