50ml glass pours a muddy brown with some cloudy, beige head. Nose has caramel, candy sugar, soggy bread, Belgian candy, some port. Flavor has port, marzipan, caramel, malt, cracker, soil, earthy. Boozy, full bodied finish. Marko (5928) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 24, 2017
Thanks Ugo! Borwn body. Creamy aroma, caramel, oak barrel, soft and full. Nice! Creamy sweet taste, with a dry tannic counterpoint, light raisins, caramel, bubblegum, thankfully not as cloying as one would expect after the full aroma. The tannins took care of that... but at the expense of slightly elevated astringency in the finish. Not bad at all! Rask0lnikov (1394) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 15, 2017

Many thanks for this beer to Eric De Geyter. Bottle number: 03121, Vintage 2015. Na samym poczatku zapachnialo tanim Johnnie Walkerem. Wyglad czerwona barwa, dosc jasna nie rubinowa potem brazowa metnista bo byl osadek. Piana srednia i raczej malo trwala. Alkohol wyczuwalny, zdecydowanie Bourbon w tle, zdominowal wszystkie smaki, byly tez figi moczone dlugo w rumie. Bardzo alkoholowe nieco rozgrzewajace. Nie przepadam za Bourbonem. Jak na klase Grand Cru to nieco jestem rozczarowany, w dodatku w tej klasyfikacji nie powinno byc korka syntetycznego. Mocno naciagnalem ocene wiec musialem to napisac. rami_pl (4194) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 4, 2017

Murky brown body. Nose of alcohol, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, ... Heavily sweet, lightly bitter flavour. Aged touch. tmoreau (4579) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Shared 2014, 375 ml. bottle poured to snifters showing a clear, amber/mahogany color, tan foam that quickly formed a persistent, thin ring, light film, and spots of lacing. The nose was malt sweetness, a bit of cocoa, mellow dark fruit, and strong saltiness & soy. Only light to medium bodied, with low carbonation, and thinning texture, the taste was somewhat similar, with some barrel & bourbon hints, and continuing soy. Didn’t cellar very well for 3 years. Had potential, but disappointing result. Zlotta (3722) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2017
0.375 l bottle from ’Gall & Gall’ (Cuijk) as ’Préaris Grand Cru 2014 Bourbon Barrel Aged’, best before November 2017. Clear, dark reddish brown to black with a thin, soapy, slowly diminishing, off-white layer. Sweetish, boozy and slightly fruity aroma of lots of vanilla and bourbon, caramel, oak and some prunes. Quite sweet, malty, slightly boozy and a bit fruity taste of lots of vanilla, bourbon, oak, raisins, prunes and some caramel, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, not so boozy but warming and a bit woody finish. Over medium-bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel, almost completely flat. Nice sipper, well-balanced even if the barrel took over massively, very pleasant.
