Bottle at the pre-ZBF at Alvinne. Beer poured a hazy orange color with no head to speak off, just a few bubbles around the edge. Aroma of fruit, dried fruit, a bit of wood. Taste was a bit spicey, dried fruit and a bit of caramel. The higher abv is a bit present but does not take over the beer. There are some vinous notes as well with a sour character.

Bottle poured by Glenn at the brewery - thanks Glenn!
A: Bright orange color with a slight rim of bubbles and moderate lacing.
S: Aroma of light bourbon, caramel and butterscotch.
T: Flavor begins on the sour side, then progresses to orange peel and coriander. Bourbon taste is subtle, mostly near the finish.
M: Nicely complex, and decent body, better than the non-oak version.
D: Very nice indeed. We had the last bourbon bottle, sorry!!
