3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: from tap at Beer Junction.
Aroma: lightly fruity with cask wood scent.
Appearance: average-sized, fizzy, off-white, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Black body.
Taste: heavily sweet initial flavor and overwhelmingly sweet, caramel finish with hints of cask wood and bourbon. Average duration.
Palate: light body, dry texture and fizzy carbonation.
Overall: a complex beer. I liked the caramel finish, but it soon became overwhelmingly sweet.

Pours a dark brown-copper color, with a whitish tan head. Aroma of wood, burgundy, and malts. Taste of currant and figs, with notes of vanilla and fruits. This is an interesting brew, not my favorite, but worth a try. Thumbs up. furthur (1255) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - AUG 7, 2017

Nez au départ hyper éthylique puis on repart sur le bourbon et un fond de chêne. Bouche largement plus légère, riche et équilibrée. On retrouve les fruits, le vieillissement.
Bien foutue. JaBier (8396) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2016
Bottle. Clear copper pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, roast and bourbon. Malty and caramelly flavor with some bourbon, sugar and toffee accents before an estery finish.

(bottle, Vrutak, Zagreb) heavy (2911) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 15, 2016
Feb. ’16. A 0.65 l bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. It poured almost clear copper (mračno je, ne vidin) body with a small, short living head. Strong aroma of bourbon, alcohol, caramel, vanilla, touched with yeast. Not bad at all! Flavor was lightly sweet, with caramel, dried and dark fruits. Also lightly bitter/sour with wood and alcohol, especially towards the finish. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation on palate. Long finish, bitter, wood, bourbon, lightly sour peat and other subtle things and spices. Very nice aftertaste. Barrel aging distanced it from being too Belgian, seemed more like some barley wine. Even though I was not so impressed at first, it was definitely a pleasant and an interesting brew. Nickls (2617) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Tap. Fizzy, bubbly eggshell head; coppery dark hazy brown. Alcohol; pears; prunes; candy sweetness; and toffee in the aroma. Flavor carries much more of the bourbon; boozy; some prunes; bready spiciness; and a dark fruit finish. Bit sweet for me. Medium body with bubbly vibrant carbonation.

Amber/brown color with big brown head. Aroma of fig and sour cherry. Taste is sour and sweet. Big body with huge carbonation. Really flavourfull beer.
