3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting at Papsř’s
Dark color, mahogany to brown, with red shades; medium sized head. The malt aroma is strong, caamellish, with hints of wood and vanilla, fudge. Strong and cloying mouthfeel, rather oily, with strong and sweet malty flavor; it has a strong nutty touch, with traces of bitter orange; strong bitterness too.
Quite good; big.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Elwood. Pours a clear reddish brown with a rich and lacing beige head. Very sweet caramellish aroma, some raisin notes - somewhat herbal hop character. Rich body, heavy rich caramel, some overripe fruit and nuts. Rich boozy finish. Perhaps a little sticky. 160612

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle. Drank alongside Jewbelation 15 and Funky Jewbelation.
The beer pours a reddish-brown color with a tan to off-white head. The aroma has some rye and booze notes, as well as quite a bit of molasses and brown sugar. The flavor is a little more complex, with the maple notes really coming through. They are complimented by some brown sugar and caramel malt, as well as a good bit of alcohol. The beer is fairly sweet overall, but I think that works OK. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Glad I got to try this one.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper orange with a small ring of head. Aroma of candied dark fruits, dates, figs, rye, brandy and booze. Flavour the same except less obvious booze and some roasted malts present. Full bodied, rich. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Served a cloudy red-brown color with a thin finger of tannish frothy head. Head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some good lace.
S - Aroma is full of lots of Bourbon, oak, and vanilla, with some earthy hop and a touch of caramel malt and dark fruit.
T - Starts off with lots of Bourbon, oak, and vanilla with some earthy hops. Through the middle, more Bourbon flavor comes through with a bit of booze and some light malt, dark fruit, and bitterness. The finish is a mix of Bourbon, vanilla, oak, and some hop bitterness.
M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a warming finish.
D - Pretty drinkable. Big Bourbon flavor, but the beer holds up fairly nicely with some nice hp flavor coming through.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Jez. Pours chestnut brown with a small off white head which doesnt last. Nose is very cedar like. Lots of spice and whisky tones mingle with heavy, dark fruits. The whisky works well here. Dark fruits are heavy and a little sweet with the whisky. The barrel seems to add some subtle vanilla and spices to the beer, but what really seems to come out in this one is a massive vanilla malt note throughout. Full bodied and superbly hidden alcohol. Great beer

Bottle pours a cola color nice bigger head. Smells tastes caramel chocolate bourbon big wood flavor. Sort of sweet side of a barleywine big booze flavor. Pretty decent beer maybe drank to early still kind of hot would prefer a bit less wood flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle split w E @ FG. Poured into tulip. Dark red-purple pour with purple hue and brownish head. Sweet, chocolatey malt nose and tongue. Really complex palate with chocolate, fruit (light and dark fruit, dried fruit as well), booze. Medium to heavy mouthfeel. A little too sweet to me, but complex and intriguing. Also love how they incorporated flavors from Genesis verses preceding 15:15 (and I’m not religious).
