HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2013
An oil-slick of a beer, really sweet with overbearing barrel character but traces of really interesting dark fruit lying within. Not a success, moderately disappointing in fact, but not terrible.

Bottle pour at home, brought this back from Lakeview liquors in Chicago. Black pour almost no head. Bourbon aroma little sweet smooth flavor little licorice rosted coffee and some coco.

341ml bottled on 2012-10-02, 4 years old. Pour dark brownish with reddish reflexion. No foam and look inert. Signs of the beginning of maderisation and notes of bourbon barrel. The taste is strong on the bourbon side. Alcohol is also pretty in your face. Big warm feel. Long finish of spirit. Better on taste than the aroma. Low carbonation and high body. 6-2-9-3-17 Yeah, 17, just because it’s well aged and it taste great.

Pretty solid Belgian Strong Ale with just enough bourbon barrel notes to round it off. Yeah a tad sweet and lush but that is the point methinks. Has aged nicely, bought at West Lakeview Liquors since it was brewed for their anniversary a few years back.

12 oz bottle. No date, bourbon barrel aged. Very dark brown. Aroma is dark fruits, candied sugar. Slight oaky spirit. Taste is oak bourbon. Belgian candied sugar. Sweetness plays perfect with the bourbon. Very smooth. This stuff is really delicious.

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 9, 2015
Bottle - Murky dark brown colour, large creamy tan head, good retention and lacing. Fruity and roasty nose, raisins, dates, cocoa powder, toasted nut, caramel, plum. Taste is sweet and bitter, dried fruits, caramel, raisins, a touch of tobacco and oak. Full body, soft carbonation, velvety texture, bittersweet finish. Beautifully complex malty strong ale, worth trying.

Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown bottle poured into a Trappist glass. Dark brown with light brown highlights, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is bourbon, wood, vanilla, and some dark fruit. I would probably like this better with more carbonation.

rouhlas (3616) - GREECE - AUG 10, 2015
From tap. Dark copper brown color with beige head. Malty aroma, caramel, chocolate, fruits, dark dried fruits, vanilla, wood, alcohol. Sweet and light bitter taste like aroma. Almost full oily body with soft carbonation.

procraste (472) - FRANCE - JUL 22, 2015
Constatation 1: " Mince yapa’d’bulles " Constatation 2: " Mince yapurien dans le verre " Dégustée en regardant "les fraises sauvages" de Bergman ( Chic, n’est ce pas ? ). La preuve que l’on peut faire de véritables bonnes bières sans mettre du piment ... Vraie belle complexité du vieillissement, ainsi qu’une grande longueur en bouche. Joli design intriguant. Un délice donc, devant un très beau film. Une belle soirée ...
