SvanteL (630) - 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!

FunkyF (1292) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2017
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 (268) - 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.

TychoJames (1409) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2017
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.

Habanero (4798) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2017
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.

3.1
DrunkSanta410 (970) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 2, 2017
Cellared bottle from March 27, 2015. Pours murky brown, thick white head. Aroma is faint toffee, berry, faint cocoa, oak and light whiskey. Taste is vanilla, toffee, rich berry, cocoa, faintly bitter. A bit acidic, not sure if this is due to it being an aged beer. Not bad, but hard to finish my glass. Just a bit over the top for me.

3.7
FatPhil (16953) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 5, 2017
750ml bottle ([email protected]’s) (7:4:7+:4:14+=3.6++)
Nice toffee aroma. Taste is sweet and raisiny, sweet but not sickly palate. Nice bourbon balance,warming, but not boozy. Good bitter finish. Woody aspects also please. A difficult formula to impress me with, but they got everything just about right here. I’d probably prefer a slightly cranked down one.

3.9
Fred82 (2331) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2017
750ml bottle. Pours amber with small head. Nose bourbon, red dried fruits, great caramel piny hops. Taste caramel piny hops some bourbon. Finish light alcohol bourbon caramel piny hops quite resinous. Nice sweetness. Fairly well made nice stuff.
