Intro: A 330ml black waxed bottle, bottled on 2nd July 2013. Enjoy within 25 years. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with no head and no lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malts, chocolate, bourbon, oak, vanilla, toffee, with a splash of licorice.
Taste: Bourbon, dark fruit, light roast, chocolate, coffee, caramel, with slight vanilla notes.
Mouthfeel: Velvety, medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: The barrel aging has improved the base beer, and the bourbon character really stands out, for the better. This was another great sipper, and De Molen H&V variant.
