PhillyCraft (7937) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Mahogany pour with medium sized head and lacing. Color of the foam was khaki. Aromas of caramel, dark fruit, sugar, sweetness, oak, and grain. Flavor was much of the same with a lot of bitter tasting hops coming through. More of a triple ipa or a really hoppy barleyine if u ask me. Medium to full mouth. The B.a version was a lot more balanced and drinkable then regular.

SvanteL (644) - SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2017
Vackert kopparfärgad med beiget skum. Torkad frukt och whisky i doften. Otroligt fyllig med stadiga whiskytoner och fat, först sötma av torkad frukt sedan en rejäl slutbeska. Häftig!

Flaska beställd från SB. Mörkt brunröd med beige skum. Doft av kola, vanilj och bourbon. Mjuk och lite smörig med smak av kola och bourbon med fin beska på slutet.

Melker (267) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2017
It's fruity with the usual sweet caramel taste upfront and also really hoppy but it kinda evolves and becomes more complex with hints of tobacco, whiskey, oak and vanilla. Almost overly harsh bitter finish. Maybe too hoppy for my taste.

Flaska systembolaget. Brunorange kulör. Knäckig doft med vanilj, smörkola och fat. I smak känns torkad frukt, vanilj och whiskey. Väldigt len med diskret sötma. Kåda och mycket smörkola. Rejäl beska.

Bottled. Pours clear mahogani with small, lacing beige head. Aroma of fudge, caramel butterscotch, vanilla, wood, a little whiskey and some ripe fruit. Sweet flavor that ends up being slightly more dry and a little bitter. Medium bodied, syrupy texture and flat carbonation. An excellent Barely.
