Bottled, thanks Marsblursi! hazy dark ruby, rich firm head. Caramelly nose with bourbon and higher alcohols. Seemless soft caramelly body where spun sugar meets grapefruit and bourbon. Really full bodied, still the softness makes it drinkable and pleasant. Whereas the bourbon opens for new experiences it also detracts a little from the seemless malt. Still overwhelming and fantastic.

Cork popped with much force. Plenty of carbonation and the beer started storming up the neck of the bottle. Pours a very dark brown in color. Some nice bourbon, oak and toffee notes in the nose. Taste is more of the bourbon, but you get the other flavors from the barrel as well. Some nice oak and vanilla help out. Very carbonated and bubbly on the mouthfeel. Would have liked it to be a bit smoother. I preferred this one to the brandy version. This seems to be much more balanced and the flavors seem to compliment each other and work well.

Pours deep murky brown with tan head. The aroma has malts mixing with oak and mild sweet bourbon and mild sweet and dark roasted malts as well as dark fruity esters nearing the end of the draw. The taste comes across first with sweet malt and sweet bourbon then aged oak and sweet vanilla. The vanilla note really seems to take over toward midway. Very nice offering with rich creamy goodness washing across my palate depositing bourbon, vanilla, oak and mild dark fruitiness into the finish.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2008
(Bottle thanks to WeeHeavy) Pours dark mahogany, reddish brown with a sand colour/light-brown head. Sweet vanilla-ish, sugary bourbon and caramel/ buttery fudge-like malt up front in the aroma. The undertones are full of dark, dried fruits like raisins, plums and figs, earthy hops, maple syrup, English fruitcake, toasted nuts, blackberries and tropical pineapple and banana hints. The nose is extremely soft and the bourbon is well integrated. The flavour is of bourbon, vanilla, caramel, buttery fudge, plums, figs, sweet blackberries, toasted nuts, English fruitcake and maple syrup. The mouthfeel is soft, velvety carbonated, light sticky, chewy and light grassy bitter in the finish. Lingering aftertaste of overripe dark fruits, light bitter hops and sweet malt. Medium to full bodied.

Bottle shared with bager. Pours a clear dark brown with a yellow head. Smells of bourbon, vanilla, caramel and a hint of alcohol. Quite sweet with aromas of slightly burned caramel. Also aromas of bourbon oak casks and vanilla. Has a tiny whiff of sulphur. Some residual sugars. Very (too) high carbonation. Almost full bodied. Almost too sweet fnish. Big thanks to Dennis who gave me this when I came to a tasing in his house in San Diego.

I absolutely love the fact that on my last tasting while living in Toronto, we followed up Labatt Dry 10.1% with this. It really does not get any better, does it? 375ml bottle graciously shared by Harry, drank with him and Blankboy. Well i thought the original version was already bourbon barreled so what exactly is this? Bourbon bourbon barreled? I loved the original, let’s see how this is...Nice slightly bourbon aroma - nice hint of roast and chocolate underneath. Lovely. Looks great - very dark brown, big creamy brownish head. Fantastic taste - bourbon, roast, chocolate, sweet dark malt, alcohol. I do prefer the original because the bourbon stays a little more balanced in the background while in this one it is brought out forward, but still - this is terrific. Thanks so much for sharing Harry!

I am not a big fan of this style but when i got this bottle i sat on it for a while until now and i was very surprised to see how good this was with a nice but not overwhelming bourbon taste that poured a nice dark amber and had a malty and alcohol kick to it.CHEERS!

Thanks to our Lost Abbey memebers for opening this fine brew. Pours amber with off white head. Aroma is just excellent, bourbon and oak just engulf the glass, plenty of nice malts and sweetness (vanilla). Taste, dark fruits, and a nice almost coconut taste coupled with butterscotch and vanilla that coat the palate. Despite the 12.5% abv, this is one sweet beer, filled with the flavor of bourbon. This was very hard to put down and see the empry glass.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a one finger tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of coconut, bourbon, caramel, sweet malt, dark fruit, and oak. Taste is the same as aroma with a touch of roasted malt. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and smooth alcohol. A damn fine brew.
