bartlebier (3815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2016
33cl freshly bottled 09/2016, bb 09/41 from De Molen, shared. - Freshly siphoned Bourbon vanilla and fine marzipan smoothes out an already suave bitter chocolate souffl. Ties cocoa, bourbon and a still fresh hop bitterness together in a clean bitter (chocolate and almond) finish. Basic in its richness, not to be taken for granted considering what can go (fusel-)wrong in barrel-aging...Alas this did not even make it 2months into its 25+yr lifespan.

McNeillR (2296) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Rich dark ruby brown, thin head and weak sticky lacing. Nose is firmly iodine and blackberry with a slim coconut milk swoop. Initial taste is a skinny roast and nuzzled bitterness, no major roast but sticky smokiness. Carbonation is soft enough and mouthfeel very sticky and bullish. Finishes sticky, richer dark choc and liquorice noise.

33cl bouteille, bottled on 30/01/2013. Brune, col crmeux pais tirant sur le caf au lait et laissant un lger filament dor au verre. Arme donne ici de belles notes de malt fum. Ce dernier devient plus prsent avec ce bouquet de Bruichladdish qui se fait not et agrmente le ct plus doux du bourbon. Note de chocolat, certaine douceur nasale de vanill coupl une pointe de bois. Palais est ici trs agrable restituant de bonnes notes de bourbon pour une douceur en bouche tout simplement divine. Cela se prte aux notes de tourbe venant du Bruichladdish et du malt fum. La palais conserve ds lors une certaine rondeur trs prenante venant du bourbon qui ajoute une pointe de vanille complment par un malt lger tirant vers le caramel, grill-moka. En toute fin de bouche, des notes subtiles de houblons donnent vie une amertume qui balance bien ce ct fum et doux profil de bourbon. Pour 11% cest complexe et dguster tranquillement.

Earlier Rating: 4/19/2014 Total Score: 4.3
zwart met bruine kraag. Aroma van hout, zoet, volle chocolade, gebrande en geroosterde mouten, bourbon. smaken zijn die van goede bourbon, chocolade, gebrande en geroosterde mouten (niet extreeem) en zwakke koffie, de chocolade en bourbon domineren dit bier eigenlijk behoorlijk maar dat vind ik best wel lekker, tevens redelijk alcoholisch. zeer lekker !
