BigBeer45 (1541) - Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle, this ale had a clear gold-red (orange) pour and made a one finger white head that receded to a island of bubbles (about the size of a quarter) and small ring, the bubbles had faint color to them, the glass had a center medium flow of bubbles with a few single bubbles here and there, and at the edges, it left some spots of lacing on the sides of the glass that eventually rolled off, there was no sediment in the bottle, this ale had aromas of honey and dew like sweetness, floral scents and sweetness, faint malt, grass and plant sap in the background, the bourbon was very light on the nose and hardly noticeable, the aroma does resemble glue/solvent/chemical a bit (I noticed this right upon opening), not off putting but it was there and I do not like Agave syrup for this same reason, when I smell Agave, glue comes to mind, the bourbon sweetness grew as the ale warmed, this drink had flavors of agave and bourbon liquor sweetness, faint caramel, fruit that is neither tropical or citrus, vanilla in the background, a little toasted malt, I noticed wood as this beer warmed, the finish had a little pepper spice and bourbon liquor bitterness with a little sweetness following, the mouth feel was medium that coated the palate, there was a little creamy feel on the tongue, and it had average carbonation, a light nose that grew a bit as the beer warmed, a nice sipper, it was a little interesting having the agave touch to it.

Smakprov på Bishop Örebro, Ölets dag. Djup orange, klar med endast en liten försvinnande skumkrona. Maffig, fyllig doft full av kolaremmar, agavesirap, äppeljuice, mängder av torkad frukt, lönnsirap, ekfat, brunt socker och melass med stor sötma. Stor, maffig kropp som förväntat. Stor sötma med inslag av kolaremmar och mörkt socker som i doften, men kompletterat av en ganska rejäl alkoholvärme som drar iväg åt spritighet. Blir lite för vass och nästan lite bitter. Flaskan är åtminstone något år gammal. Kanske bättre av att ligga lite längre.

Coś się nie zapisało z panelu. Na pewno samo wyszło z butli. W aromacie i smaku sporo suszonych owoców, trochę beczkowych nut. Ogólnie całkiem fajne piwo.

Gushing as fuck. Wanilia dominuje. W zapachu jeszcze jablko. Smak delikatny, bardziej estrowy niz w zapachu.

Bottke, shared at Beer Temple, thanks Henk! Hazy orange color. Off white head, quickly receding. Aroma’s: bourbon, fruit, alcohol. Retronasal there’s soft fruit, berries, sourish, alcohol, bourbon, light wood, vanilla. Flavor is above moderate sweet with some fruity sourness. Strong alcohol feel. Almost full bodied. Long woody finish.

Tequila, alcohol aroma, getting worse with time. ABV is definitely more then alcoholo that coul be noticed. It’s ok but nothing cool
