4.74/5 rDev +6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Split this with my wife tonight.
Served in a wine glass.
A: Poured a maroon color, VERY cloudy, without much head to speak of.... maybe a slight of white sillouette of a head.
S: Coconut bourbon scent which buried the fruit (isn't coconut a fruit?). My wife said it best: "Smells like a Kona Coffee coconut macaroon minus the coffee."
T: Tastes like a coconut macaroon, through and through. Not the fruit presence like "Cuir," not the booze of "Coton." Never tried Papier before. The sweetness gave it sort of a coconut pie-esque flair , along with an uber sweet "Chess Pie."
M: Sure, this was sweet, but it was so awesome in that respect. Dessert city! Only the slightest sliver of carbonation.
O: Is my review for this one going to be higher than "Cuir?" I guess I need to check that out now. Pretty awesome....

4.44/5 rDev -0.7%

750ml waxed bottle poured into balloon snifter 14/6/14, cheers Adam for sharing (from notes)
A clear brownish amber, a couple bubbles under a thin film, not much for lace but some wide legs going down the side
S vanilla, lots of sweet bourbon, a pile of brown sugar, a little wood, raisins, there's some booze but very well hidden all things considered, faint molasses, caramel galore, more vanilla and bourbon, more like a liqueur then beer but its working wonders for me
T thankfully it mimics the smell, vanilla, bourbon, caramel, its sweet but manageable, tastes as good as it smells
M thick and syrupy, a little heat but I'd never guess its over 15%, sticky on the lips and a sweet woody finish
O all the important parts are well taken care of, smells and tastes awesome, a little sweet and boozy but its a minor complaint
I'd lay this down for a decade if I had a bottle, drinking well now but this one will be something special down the road, I'm just happy I got to try it today, delicious stuff
