La même bouteille de 37,5 cl ! A l’ouverture, un énorme parfum de bourbon puis apparaissent au nez d’autres odeurs de raisin, de caramel, de chocolat et encore l’alcool. En bouche, il y a une explosion de bourbon avec des notes de dattes, de fruits noirs, de chocolat, de café et TOUT ! La chaleur de l’alcool persiste ainsi que les saveurs précitées. Je n’invente rien, bien sûr mais c’est un MUST pour moi et Sophie aussi avec qui j’ai partagé le breuvage.

Vom Fass bei Stone in Berlin. Schönes Johannisbeer Aroma. Kokos und Salbei. Weich und total rund! Rum und Rotwein im Antrunk. Röstmalz. Gewürze. Weich und wunderbar abgelagert. Ein Traum!

Bottle from 2009 shared by alexsdad06 pour opaque dark brown to black with minimal tan head. Nose Bourbon, boozy, raisin, molasses, and light off. Taste flavors seem thin up front with thick mouth feel, weird. More raisin, and caramel in the aftertaste. Likely much better fresher.

anstei (2169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle, bought at Erzbierschof about a year ago, says "vintage 2013 b" on the shoulder. Very, very strong bourbon barrel throughout. There probably *is* an American Strong Ale hiding behind that, but it’s hard to tell. And so there is not much more to say, except maybe low carbonation, boozy, etc. Nice, but rather one-dimensional.

12.7 oz bottle into a snifter. Black, with a thin, light brown head. Quickly dissipating. Aroma is unreal - a ton of the bourbon and barrel initially; some wood/oak. The taste and finish on this is incredible. Haven’t had a beer like this ever. The alcohol is soft, shining through to highlight the huge chocolate - almost like a milkshake, vanilla, huge toffee, caramel. Soft bitterness, but the flavour goes and goes. I really enjoyed this; can’t wait to find a few more of these gems

It pours black with a dark brown head. It has aromas of bourbon, oak, vanilla, and dark chocolate. The vanilla becomes more prominent as the beer warms. There are flavors of bourbon, oak, alcohol, cocoa, dark chocolate, roast, a little bit of burnt, and hints of dark fruit. It is full body with a bit of a slick feel to it. There is strong alcohol warming and the finish is slightly hot. It has low carbonation. Overall this is a strong ale with complex combinations of bourbon, oak, and malts with a slight hop compliment.
