kustie (1307) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2017
Bottle. Amber color with lacing off-white head. Aroma has hoppy elements, caramel, dark fruits, needles and some grass. Taste is malty sweet with long bitter and quite dry aftertaste. Lots of hoppy elements, needles and pine in flavors. Also some alcohol warmth, oak, dark fruits and caramel. Quite heavy one.

herinmary (78) - RUSSIA - OCT 28, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2017 Аромат очень своеобразный: спелые фрукты, бурбон, карамель. Во вкусе не сочетаемые компоненты спелые фрукты (груша, яблоки), сладость, бурбон и хмелевая горечь сочетающаяся с выраженной бурбонной сладостью. Послевкусие очень долгое с приятной сладость.

Muggus69 (2721) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 27, 2017
355mL bottle from Slowbeer. Bottled 05.04.17 Pours a pale copper body, dense off-white head. Aroma is quite intense - lots of charred wood, rich caramels, vanilla, butter, sort of bitter citrus hops, earthy, marmalade. Body is big, starts kind of heavy, not quite cloying, but drying astringency from wood & booze sort of thins things out. Rather potent woody notes - toast, pencil shavings, char, vanilla & butter, upfront, personal. Latter palate becomes a combination of almost stewed fruit characters - apple, peach, yellow plum - very bitter, rather boozy. Quite brutal - not the the extent of the DKML - but yeah, sort of wish it had stacks of body, then at least it would make a decent barley wine, but the booze & wood gets the better of this one.

langeveld12 (587) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 Sweetness of the malts and bitterness but no floral hops or citrus fruits. Instead wood and bourbon giving smoothness and additional sweetness. Nice, but I prefer barrel ageing and bourbon in stouts.

Cunningham (8375) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2017
A very powerful and nice dipa. Dangerously well masked alcohol. And not that prominent barrel flavor.
Clear deep golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing. Good intensity in the aroma. Not sticky in anyway. Full body and a balanced sweetness for a beer like this. Oily texture. Grapefruit hoppy, lots of dried fruits, mild wood, resin and pine in the flavor.
[Bottle from Systembolaget in Sweden]

mice (1042) - FINLAND - OCT 25, 2017
Clear, golden beer with good white and stable head. Aroma has vanilla, caramel, pine and alcohol. Taste has vanilla, pine and way too much alcohol. Bourbon is too dominant and feels like the bourbon barrels have been half full of bourbon when the beer is added there. More whiskey than a beer. Way too alcoholic.

xmunozsbd (149) - Sabadell, - OCT 25, 2017
Compartit al club de tast de l'Olut (Sabadell) al Beergarden!... Impressionant combinació d'una IPA en barrils de bourbon... semblava que no podia ser?
