tmoreau (4297) - 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. Didnít cellar very well for 3 years. Had potential, but disappointing result. Zlotta (3193) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2017
0.375 l bottle from íGall & Gallí (Cuijk) as íPrťaris Grand Cru 2014 Bourbon Barrel Agedí, 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. djoeye (4605) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2017

375ml cork and wire bottle, vintage 2014, No. 02327. Provided by Finn. A filmy layer to a deep rosewood coloured body. Spotty lacing. Subdued doughy aroma with hints of dried fruits. Interesting blend of prunes, dough, and oak added by a bourbon touch. Dried fruity ending. Vinous impression. Full bodied. Gets rather sweet in the long run. Nice in smaller amounts (Shared with Finn and djoeye, TromsÝ 11.02.2017). Finn (7513) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2017

alteregoo (1392) - Kalisz, POLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Piana drobna, ładna, po chwili opada do pierzynki. Barwa mahoniowa, lekko mętna. Aromat intensywny, cudownie kokosowy, waniliowy, do tego rodzynki, jasne winogrona, karmel, kandyzowany cukier... Klasa! W smaku dość słodkie, średnio wysycone, pełne, gładkie. Tu suszone i kandyzowane owoce, karmel i miůd mieszają się z beczką i bourbonem, w tle lekka przyprawowość, na finiszu delikatna ziołowo taniczna szorstkość, cierpkość, goryczka dla balansu. Alkohol pięknie wkomponowany w całość, delikatnie rozgrzewa dopiero w przełyku.
Lore (2665) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 13, 2016
Rewelacyjny trunek, bardzo ułożony, pachnie przepięknie, beczka po bourbonie jednoznacznie odcisnęła piętno. W smaku natomiast idealny balans nut quadruplowych z waniliowo-kokosowymi. Bardziej oleista, gęsta faktura całości i byłby niemalże ideał!
hazy brown colour, minimal creamy beige-ish head; aroma of dried plum, raisin, cherry bonbon with dark dark chocolate, oak and bourbon notes, maybe hints of vanilla, too, taste of cherry bonbon with dark chocolate again, some puln, raisin, rye bread notes, alcoholic spiciness and some syrupy sweetness; I expected a bit more from this quadrupel... bluejacket74 (1991) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2016
375 ml caged and corked bottle, 2015 vintage, bottle number 00612. Served in a DFH Signature Glass, the beer pours dark brown with a bit of a reddish tinge to it, along with about an inch tan head that stuck around a while. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, wood and brown sugar. Itís a mostly sweet smelling beer. The taste is sweet and fruity, it tastes similar to the aroma but with the addition of some sweet spiciness and a bit of chocolate. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís slick and is well carbonated. I liked this brew, certainly worth picking up if you havenít had it before! With that being said, it is pricey at $16.99 a bottle. BuckeyeBoy (7527) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 9, 2016
375ml bottle pours out hazy brownish topped with a small tan head. Nose is big barrel notes oak spice pit fruit and some rich malts. Taste is more of the barrel notes spice oak bourbon and a nice sweetness. JorisPPattyn (9927) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2016
Medium beige head, some lace over opaque brown beer, well-carbonated. Alcoholic nose, clearly Bourbon, with vanilla and young oak. Bit of parsley too, raisins, nutcake. Slightly acidic, lactic acid, not unlike stout-acidity. Lots of dark and sweet malts & melanoidins, as well as the Bourbon markers. Ripe banana, sweet underbuild. Spritzy carbonation alleviates the very slick to viscous texture and thick body. Alcoholwarming. Iím partial to Bourbon for barrel aging purposes. This ainít no exception.
