HEAVEN HILL BOURBON BOCK 2013, barrel-aged: Dunkler, röstmalzbetonter Doppelbock mit 21% Stammwürze. Um dem Bier zusätzliche, individuelle Aromen zu verleihen, reiften wir es sieben Monate in einem Kentucky-Bourbon Whiskey-Fass der Heaven Hill Distillery nach. In der Nase komplexe Aromenvielfalt nach feiner Röstmalzsüße, Gewürzpotpourri und Vanille. Am Gaumen schlank und trocken, Bitterschokolade und Gewürze. Eleganter Abgang nach Röstnoten, Hopfen und Vanille. Whiskey- und Vanillearomen aus dem Fass vermählen sich mit dem Bier zu einem einzigartigen Geschmackserlebnis. Ideal zu Wildgerichten und Süßspeisen. Zutaten: Wasser, Gerstenmalz, (Münchner Malz, dunkles Karamellmalz), Hopfen (Tettnang, Tettnanger), untergärige Brauhefe.

(bottle) clear deep amber colour with a frothy light-beige head. aroma of wet grass and pear, with lots of sugar icing, some canned fruit cocktail, ethanol and cactus juice. flavour is more peaches and ethanol, rather sweet, with some notes of charred chicken breasts, dill, sour cream and cherry stones. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

Koelschtrinker (20208) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 28, 2016
Malzig intensiver Beginn, Noten von Bourbon die sich deutlich intensivieren, aufkräusend im Mund. Weich, minimal bitter. Langer holziger Nachhall. 10/8/9/9//9

SinH4 (4708) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2016
Nice brown color with red highlight, tan head. Aroma is bourbon, lots of bourbon. Vanilla, caramel, booze. Taste is huge barrel, some beer detectable, but quite boozy-hot, a bit tart. Silky mouthfeel, some chewiness. Nice, but needs more balance, it’s got way too much barrel and not enough beer character.

kappldav123 (6097) - GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015
Had this with 10,7% ABV. Bottle looks really, really good. Beer in the glass dark brown, small head. Intense malty-alcoholic aroma. Starts very strong, sharp, quite alcoholic. Roasty notes, modest spicy-woody. Finish still very strong, alcoholic. Goes down burning. Not a every-day beer. But okay.

Erzengel (8615) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2015
* 75cl for 13,49€. Röstmalzig-dickflüssiger Dunkler Bock. Intensiv, Trockenpflaumen, Schokolade. Dabei eine sehr interessant angenehme Vanille-Burbon-Note. Holzige Anklänge, trotzdem leicht und fruchtig. Ein bisschen alkoholisch. Tolle Vanille mit dunklem röstigen Bock. Fantastisch!

bierkoning (13201) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2015
Corked bottle. Dark brown color. Malt, caramel, roast, vanila, chocolate and bourbon in the complex aroma. Malty sweet caramelly alcoholic flavor. Vanilla, red fruit, bourbon. Raw around the edges but pleasant.

rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2014
750 ml bottle as Nikl-Bräu Bourbon Bock 2013. #365/400. BB 23/04/2018. Thanks to Timo A! Clear amber colour with a tiny off-white head. Jägermeister and cough medicine in the aroma. The flavour is berries, tartness, herbs and some red wine. No good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2013
0.75 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Dark amber color. Pungent smoky and oaky aroma with Islay type peat smoke, tar, vanilla. Sweet, tart, tarry, peaty and smoky flavor. Somewhat surprisingly, tastes more like a Islay whisky than bourbon, lots of peat, iodine and tar. Interesting to analyze bot not so tasty.
