Too sticky sweet and one note for me. No great projection or melding of flavours. It’s a decent BW but probably needs more time. shoulderbroken (4256) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 25, 2014
Aroma is whiskey barrel, boozy. Taste is interesting, lots of boozy fruit, sweet and sticky. Caramel. Apples.

Clear copper color, smallish white head. Sweet, oak, wood, fruity, alcohol scent. Sweet, wood, oak, alcohol taste. Warming. Sweet aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Smell is to dominated by oak alnd alcohol, works much better in the taste. Mouthfeel is way to fizzy, detracts from the overall experience.
33cl bottle from the brewery. It pours a deep amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma is quite sweet with toffee, caramel and some piney hops. Taste is sweet with caramel, honey, toffee and some citrusy piney bitterness. Medium silky body with soft carbonation. Quite sweet and good, with very few booze notes.

Hazy amber with a white, lacy lasting, frothy head. Smells of alcohol, fruit, melon, fruit, and caramel. Medium to full oily body. Tastes of sweet toasted malt, with fruit, caramel, and a dry bitter cherry liquorish finish. Not bad. A bit of alcohol is noticeable. Not bad. I think I prefer the regular one.m
