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 (7973) - 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. jaghana (6070) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - OCT 8, 2016

Taste is medium sweet malt with caramel and toffee notes, bit raisins, vinous with some tartness, oak and some vanilla. Medium+ bodied, soft carbonation, oily. Not bad at all.
(bottle, Vrutak, Zagreb) heavy (2817) - 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.

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. Hrc_Cro (533) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 16, 2016
0.66l bottle. Misty amber color with nice browny head. Nice smell of bourbon. Aroma of cherries, plum, malt and coffee. Taste is sour and little bitter and sweet with some alcohol present. More acidic than expected, but good stuff. Marko (5718) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 2, 2015
From Pivoteka, shared with Mario, thanks! Unsure of the vintage - 75% "ale with fruit with vanilla beans added, 25% ale aged in bourbon barrels." Shiny ruby-brown body with a tiny off white head. Aroma - raisins and vague bourbon. Taste... raisins, fruity in general, vague tartness, light coffee, far from excessively sour, mild puckering. Slightly dry finish, notes of grapes. Actually a very nice beer, without being a thriller. VDuquerroux (1688) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle, 1 pint 6oz. @Naintré, with dad and mom. A very dark brown sparkling beer with a big beige creamy head ; average retention. Roast, toast, blackberry, blackcurrant, wood, nut, vanilla, prune. Medium sweet, light to medium acid, dry bitter note, light refreshing, warming background. Medium body, average texture, light oily, average carbonation, sweet acid medium finish. Overall, a beautiful beer with a stormy fruity aroma ; makes me think of a flemish sour beer ; really good ; nice woody touch.
