Draught @ CBC’14Ktwse (4886) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Vintage 2013, 16%
Aroma is stale and a total vanilla overdose. Very sweet and syrupy. Flavour has strong bourbon tones, sweet malt and caramel. Despite all the sweetness and strong aromas, this feels balanced. A slow sipper for a long evening.
Pours deep clear brown with yellowish head. Aroma of butterscotch, toffee, light grapefruit and resin. Taste is sweet, toffee, caramel, lingering sweet finish. Rich, creamy body with soft carbonation.

Ataraxia (535) - California, USA - APR 11, 2014
Somewhat translucent amber brown, light beige lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel, pear, charred oak, apple, raisin, vanilla, and butterscotch. Sugary sweetness with a little dried fruit tannic character. Smooth, fairly viscous, and full-bodied. Bourbon booziness in the lingering finish. RespertFTW (521) - Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2014
At 2014 MBG Winterset. Deep hazy brown. Dried fruit, sugar, caramel and booze. Smooth and tasty. Xilgrin (7) - - APR 3, 2014 does not count
Strong aroma and quite rightly so! 2010 vintage, with singing flavours. Drink with a glass of water as this is serious. Look at the legs running down the side of the glass as it’s so strong
