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. OminouSC2 (901) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2016
Dark amber/brown color, hazy. Lovely nose, sweet caramel and fruits and lot of bourbon barrel aromas and vanilla. Sweet taste of bourbon, vanilla, caramel and a lingering alcohol taste that warms your whole being. Long, awesome finish. VsXsV (4544) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle. 2013 vintage. Light hazy deep mahogany color with medium, fast dissipating off-white head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, sweet booze, raw sugar and red berries. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of booze, bourbon, wood and raw sugar. Full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Pretty nice, but a bit overly booze.

375 ml bottle. 2013 vintage.laiti (8513) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2016
Pours dark mahogany color with a very small head. Aroma is extremely pleasant bourbon-y with vanilla, quite dry wooden notes, caramel and some malts. Flavor is dry malty, refined with subtle wooden tingliness and slight alcohol burn, vanilla and ripe fruits on the sweet side. An excellent slow sipper, the aroma alone is intoxicating. Bourbon fans rejoice!
37,5 cl bottle vintage 2013 (14,1%) @ homelusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2016
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.
