Brun och rätt stilla. En överväldigande smak med bourbon. Fatlagringen blir nästan för mycket. Djup smak med torkad frukt

500 ml bottle to snifter (2013 vintage, shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a chewy dark amberish brown with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; a nice balance of caramel, vanilla, oak, and hops. Tastes like it smells with a medium full-bodied mouthfeel that’s very smooth for the abv. Tasty.

2013 bottle from Greg (gregwilsonstl) -- cheers! There’s a ton of barrel-aged flavor and aroma as soon as I opened the bottle. Sweet, caramel flavor that’s dried out a bit from three years in the bottle, but with so much bourbon and dry oak flavor that it almost tastes like a sweet bourbon. Great stuff.

Where: Tasting 2016-05-28.
Appearance: Amber-red colour with a quickly fading off-white head.
Aroma: Bourbon, alcohol, dried fruit, vanilla, raisin, caramel.
Body: Full body, low carbonation.
Flavour: Caramel, alcohol, raisin, bourbon.
A consistently great if pricey beer, the sweetness of the bourbon meshes well with the fruitiness and creates a complex monster. It’s too boozy and sweet compared to the complex yet more delicate base imo.
