laiti (8304) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2016
37,5 cl bottle vintage 2013 (14,1%) @ home
Aroma has sweet, sweet barley wine & bourbon tones; caramel, toffee and vanilla. Flavour has alcohol, sweet bourbon tones, caramel and toffee. Bourbon is strong with this one, this is still somewhat balanced though. Most likely will work quite perfectly as a slow sipper when slightly chilled. The alcohol cuts the sweetness nicely.

emusche (209) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Pours copper with a thin, quickly receding head, a little sticky lacing. Nose is all bourbon, but a really expensive, aged bourbon. Taste is similar, whiskey, stone fruit, toffee, caramel. Glad I got a chance to try it. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to pint glass (2009 vintage) Consummation: Wow...this is an old ale? Caramel hits me right off the bat and it lasts throughout. Theres a lot of bourbon too and Im glad I let this sit for a couple years. This is incredibly complex. I get clove, malt, orange, pomelo, caramel, burnt sugar. Adjunct: Caramel bourbon aroma; dark amber, no head; medium bodied, with some warmness
