3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a murky dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of somewhat smoky caramel malts, bourbon barrels, and wood. Flavour is very heavy and woody, full of smoked woody malts, bourbon barrels, loads of caramel, and some vanilla. Quite barrel-dominating, without being too overburdening. The sweetness is high, which cloys a bit after a while. Good stuff, but a little too sweet for me.

A sipper to be shared. Very rich in flavour, smoke and bourbon both there and integrated. A good woodiness. Satisfying.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Hazy, dark caramel-colored ale with ruby highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma offers bourbon, vanilla, toasted coconut and caramel. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is a sweet, lush mélange of vanilla, coconut and caramel. A tad too sweet, but still a world class beer provided by the ever-generous MartinT!
