Bottle at the De Molen second Tuesday tasting. Wow. What a beer! The aroma is warm and rich with vanilla notes. The flavour is ultra rich, ultra smooth with buttery oak and cognac. This beer really warms the heart. Truly outstanding! MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2012
Draft @ brewpub. Clear light amber color. Aroma has barrel notes, loads of bourbon. Flavor is intense alcoholic, yet easy drinkable. Loads of bourbon notes on the flavor. Great new brew. MaartenRF10 (1959) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2012

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear amber/red with a small white head and an aroma of bourbon, sweet malts, vanilla, toffee and white chocolate. The taste is not really sweet, dominated by bourbon and malts and with a thin but pretty long lasting hop bitterness. Pretty nice beer.

Draft @ de molen. Aroma is huge vanilla, wood, bourbon, caramel. Flavour is woody bitterness, huge vanilla and bourbon, some fruity notes, caramel. Vanilla and bourbon dominate a bit much, but very nice. Benzai (17005) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2012
Draught @ De Molen. Brand new brew. Clear medium orange color with a full sized solid slightly off-white head that leaves good lacing. Smell slightly malts, slightly sweet, subtle bourbon that gets more prominent when it warms. Taste lightly malts, slightly sweet, nice balanced bourbon finish with some warming alcohol as well. Body might just be a little bit thin, medium carbonation. Dangerously easy drinkable, doesn’t taste like 10,2% ABV to me.
