77ships (9267) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2015
330 ml. bottle. Purchased @ Malt Attacks. Bottled on 04/2014. Dark red copper amber, little tanned head. Nose is odd candy sweet with heavy caramel with light apple pie, dates, light blue cheese hops, even more caramel, cinnamon, sweet candy but oddly not thick. Taste is interesting heavy caramel, UK style malts, light blue cheese, dark fruits, plenty of dates, cinnamon, nutmeg, heavy on caramel malt, tad maple syrup, vanilla, odd very heavy caramel malt, Oddly light, very heavy on caramel, cinnamon, vanilla, dates, Huge caramel & sweet spices but no real bourbon taste to me. Way lighter body wise than expected for style & flavor, Lighter caramel malt body, Way too light to really carry the flavours. Odd beer as one would expect probably but pleasant still. I dont think that this style is very suited for barrel aging but that again does beer geek really dig this style.

jackafholmes (1011) - - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle from hop hideout, sheffield. Clear reddish brown ale with small cream head. Aroma is buttery caramel and twangy citric hops. Taste is marginally sour but mostly bitter with rounded sweet malts to counter. Its got a good medium body. I was expecting to hate this as I love tradition browns, but the combination is actually well suited!

Keg at BD. Very well balanced this. Nice woody malty mix, bourbon notes adding tangy edge. Fine carbonation, zippy whilst creamy. Super drinkable stuff.

Taste comprises rich dark fruit, cake mix, bourbon wash, toffee fudge, vanilla, dates, earthy hop pang. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a trace of booze.
