355ml bottle - Overpriced Beer Tasting 2016 - thanks rask0lnikov!suurjuust (3767) - ESTONIA - DEC 3, 2016
Smells of whatever spirit was in the barrel, some barrel. Nice raisiny taste, but outragiously sweet. Woody, but so damn sweet. Doesn’t hide the alcohol, it smothers the alcohol. Sweet boozy mess.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 Bottle at home, 2015 ed. Very dark red wine colour, no head. Amazingly complex cherry, red vinous, oaky vanilla, bourbon-y, lightly acidic nose. Taste has some additional roasted malty chocolate, coffee, butterscotch, nuts and dried fruits, warmingly boozy but high abv is well hidden. Brilliantly balanced. Red fruity, body lingering finish. Absent carbonation, big body, velvety (!) soft mouthfeel, oily texture. Chudwick (3367) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - JUL 22, 2016
12oz bottle 2014 release thanks to Prufrockstar- nose is like regular version but a little cough syrup or brandy. Flat. A little nutty probably from the ageing. Earthy.
