Pours a dark caramel brown with a light beige head. Lots of bourbon and bready malts in the aroma. Some chocolate, light christmas spices, toffee and very light banana yeast. Taste is caramelly, malty, sweet barrel, sweet bourbon. The cask is totally ballanced here. Aftertaste is fairly sweet, but the booze keeps it from getting cloying. Just very good barleywine. Would love to taste this with some years on it. Mariox (295) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 28, 2017
Świetny barley wine... beczka zaznacza się genialnie w smaku, ale jeszcze lepiej w aromacie. Po ogrzaniu aromat jest wspaniały 👌 hrabren (1362) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 26, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2017 On tap at Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with Višnja 666! Murky brown, no head. Vanilla, nutty, wooden and smoke from whisky barrel. Strong whiskey presence. Dry, boozy. Some sweetness underneath. Creamy and milky, very strong. Medium to full body, moderate lasting dry and boozy finish. Good BA, quite impressive. 838315=3.7 Marko (5930) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 26, 2017
Tap at Pivoteka. Misty brown body, no head, no carbonation. Soft, sweetish aroma, entirely dominated by the oak and bourbon, on some maltiness. Pleasant and not too alcoholic. Creamy, very creamy aroma, dried berry cream fantastically smooth and well rounded. Dry grainy touches too. Just a vague bitterish touch in the touch mixing with light tannins. Woody notes and some alcohol do break through later but damn, damn this is smooth. And not excessivelly sweet either, just enough. moldovan9807 (466) - Oradea, ROMANIA - SEP 14, 2017

Pours dark amber with no head. Aromas of caramel and toffee with oak and bourbon notes along with figs, dates. Taste is toffee and caramel with lightly roasted nutty notes and barrel and oak character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and oily. piwnanuta (224) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 9, 2017
Coś przepysznego. Bourbon, suszone owoce, wanilia. Do tego wszystkiego dochodzi chlebowy posmak i aromat. Gęste i oleiste. Alko ukryte. herrklemann (407) - Graz, AUSTRIA - SEP 4, 2017
Tap at Bevog Festival 2017. Dark brown with an amber hue and a small tan rim. Sweet sherry notes, some bourbon, nuts, grains, dates, fig jam, caramel, oak. Heavy sweetness that overpowers everything else. Rich, bourbony finish. Oily body with super soft carbonation. Too little carbonation, in fact, which allows the sweetness to take over again and again and again. Probably well done, but lacking in terms of palate.
