BlazerT (741) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 18, 2017
Bottle. Teku. Deep brown with tiny, almost none head. Poor/none head retention and lacing. Aroma is huge, moderately to heavy malty - roasted, caramel, slightly chocolate. First of all huge bourbon notes, slightly boozy in the background. Also light to moderate dark fruits - prunes, raisins. Taste is moderately to highly sweet, long, stable broken by some nice light acidic notes. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, finish is bourbon, sweet, slightly boozy, slightly raisins and prunes. Slightly warming ABV. In overall outstanding brew with really strong influence of bourbon, not very sticky overloaded by malts like its used to be in most of BW. The only cons are for the appearance and boozy character. But believe me this one is worth every penny.

MelvinKalksma (1223) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2016

Aroma:
Heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, bourbon, vanilla, coconut, dried fruit, chocolate and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Opaque dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts heavy sweet with malts, caramel, wood, bourbon, vanilla, coconut, dried fruit and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. So much flavour, so much of everything. Those Heaven Hill barrels surely are the main attraction here, but there are still a lot of other flavours left. Simply amazing, nothing else to say.

swhbh (6) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2016 does not count
Pours opaque brown that seems to turn pink-brown toward the top of the glass...with sediment somehow evenly dispersed throughout. Smells strongly of bouron/whiskey/booze, wine and dry fruit. Tastes much the same as it smells, sweet and dry. It has a thick, full mouthfeel with slight carbonation. Excellent and different than any beer I have had.
