Palme (4484) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2013
On tap @ Borefts 2013. This is a light cloudy or deep blurry wood brown one. It had a small islandy head thats leaving good lacework on the sides of the glass. The nose is filled with sweet caramel and sticky malt goodness. Its not to extreme really but present and quite inviting. Cant sense to much of the buffalo to be honest. Maybe some wet rocky thing all the way in the back? Its just as sticky and caramel malt sweet in the taste as the aroma told me it should be. Vanilla wood and a little whisky burn makes this really interesting and flavorful. Its also somewhat fruity with lots of ripe old fruits. All flavors are well integrated and its a really good barley. 28.09.2013

Tons of vanilla. Not much of a head cherry wood color. Lots of the bourbon in the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TimE (5608) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2013
cherry oak color. Tons of vanilla and oak in the nose, fairly boozy. The mouth is full body, fairly boozy. Sweet, low carbonation, tons of oak and bourbon. Heavy, somewhat syrupy. Big big beer. Creamy mouth feel. Fairly over the top, but as I expected. Loved it.
