Bottle from SlovakSniper. Rich marshmallow bourbon aroma. Rich dark fruit taste with vanilla and oak. Sweet with a boozy dark fruit finish. Not sure whether or not I like the bourbon barrel version better. JefVerstraete (3556) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2015
Bottle from yourilevesque. Vintage 2014 Many thanks! Dark brown colour, creamy beige foam. Nose of red fruit, plums, bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar. Sweet and malty with fruity notes. Very well balanced, not too boozy or alcoholic. Very nice winter sipper. HippyHop (673) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2015
2014 edition. Pour is deep mahogany with a small but fairly persistent cap. Nose is residual sugar and caramel, oak, vanilla, dark fruit, earth. Taste is sweet and syrupy, moderately spicy. Dry and boozy with a slightly bitter finish. Like a bourbon-y port. Very nice winter sipper. Maybe should've aged it more.

Beautiful. Pours a dark, slightly viscous brown with an opaque body and a thin beige head a few bubbles thick. The nose is rich and literally wafts off the glass with a strong alcohol presence and a ton of roasted caramel and toffee notes, light hints of wood, vanilla and earthen notes. Vanilla is more noticable in the flavour profile with a rich toffee and molasses malt backbone. Bourbon barrels did a wonder here leaving a ton of rich and silky wooden notes to balance the alcohol and heavy malt base. Vanilla comes through more in the aftertaste. A great brew for a cold night. vadie (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2015
Couleur du caramel brûlée avec presque pas de mousse. L’arôme du sucré brun, du bourbon, caramel, fruits séchées, et un peu d’houblon. Un peu comme un porto. En bouche c’est très similar, et l’alcool n’est pas trop fort. Très buvable pour le style. Très complexe et parfaite pour une soirée d’hiver!

Bottle (2009 version) [from trade with yourilevesque] shared with kermis @ Night before crazy Danish ticking spree whilst planning to give Dean a wedgie - tasting. Opaque dark red-brown color with medium sized beige head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, heavy oak, (Dutch) "boomschors", pretty sweet, sticky resinous sweetness. Taste malts, (I’ve got) massive wood, loads of oak flavors, sweet, sticky resin, lightly alcohol though pretty well hidden. Full body, suitable medium carbonation. kermis (14478) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2015

With livley intensity of empowering flavour and a gentle yet strong smooth lingering after taste. This beer has defined layers consiting of a complexity of mild bourbon followed by its sweet dessert like features coating your tongue leaving a delicate sweet yet intense after taste. guil0000 (433) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 23, 2015
