    I would have liked to try it blind, to see if I would have recognized these Bockbier / Malzbiernoten. A higher alcohol strength would be good for him, so he looks in the mouth and finish too thin and short, there are some point deduction. Otherwise, a well-made bourbon is already different and stands out from the usual bourbon uniformity.
    • Nose
      It is already different, in the foreground is dark, sweet malt and behind it comes a little vanilla and toffee. At least some glue can be guessed, but does not bother at all. With some time passes the adhesive note and it comes a little dark berry compote. Too much time in the glass and it fades clearly.
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet, with a hint of creaminess and a little bit of bitterness, dark caramel and dark goat beer (am I just imagining it because I know there was a finish in the beer keg?). The 40% are a bit watered down
    • Finish
      In the finish a bit weak and short. Again dark malt, dark caramel and some bitterness, which also reminds again of the hops in the beer. A few poppy, slightly sweet forest berries are still left behind.
