Christian (13815) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2016
Borefts Beer Festival 2015. Cloudy dark brown with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of licorice and chocolate, with oak and bourbon notes and quite a bit of booze. Sweet chocolate and malt flavour with lots of bourbon and a touch of dried fruit.

Had this one at Borefts, from the tap. An excellent beer, with an extremely complex aroma and taste - chocolate, coffee, vanilla, macerated fruits, apples, pears, grapes, cherries, cherry liquor and so on. Super smooth mouthfeel with a heavy bourbon taste that I enjoyed quite a bit.

Vestergaard (2091) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2015
On tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2015, day 1. Pours a flat, murky dark brown. Aroma is oily, very boozy, lots of bourbon, coconut, gasoline, burned wood, milk chocolate. Taste is sweet, boozy and has a slight acidity, roasted and very sweet malts, huge caramel. Flat body, no carb. Too much, too strong!

From tap. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is wooden, acetone and dark toasted malt. Solid alcohol presence. Dark malt. Wooden. Dry and warming finish. Too much.

Batavi (398) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2015
Geproefd tijdens Borefts 2015 van de tap. Mijn hoge verwachtingen van de bieren van Hair of the Dog, worden gelijk ingelost, wat een smaakbom. Zeer donkerbruine kleur met vrijwel geen schuim, slechts een paar beige belletjes. Het aroma is zeer rijk en zoet met tonen van; donker en gedroogd fruit als dadels, vijgen en pruimen, vanille, hout en krachtige bourbon tonen van de Heaven Hill barrels. Echt een smaaksensatie, perfect in balans tussen zoet, licht zurig met vele complexe smaken in het pallet, vanille chocolade, maar ook tabak en oude eiken vaten, met een krachtige alcoholische finish van zachte Amerikaanse bourbon. Voor mij echt de topper van de bieren die ik heb mogen proeven tijdens Borefts 2015. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
