Pours from the bottle into a deep dark black cherry color. A strong woody aroma with a lot of dark fruit mixed in. But cherry and apple flavor upfront with a lot of barrel. Bourbon flavors come in through the end. Amazingly smooth flavor. Very dangerous sipper. Great stuff.

12oz bottle of delishiousness! 2013 dated bottle - gotta try a vertical of these... Chestnut brown hue, moderate height tan head. Aged citrus, nut & dark/stone fruit nose & flavor. Nice bourbon booziness and sweet malt. Full-body and moderate carbonation.

Zakoon (370) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2015
355ml bottle enjoyed @ home, thanks to Yeaster. Pours very dark brown with a small but steady tan head. Aroma is prunes, dates, raisins, caramel, wood, vanilla, overripe berries and bourbon. Taste is sweet, a little sour. Full bodied, creamy yexture, soft - almost no carbonation. Finish is complex and long.

12oz bottle from Kuhnhenn. Pours a rich chocolate brown. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar, molasses, alcohol. Flavor is caramel, vanilla extract, subtly metallic, raisins, toffee. Finish is bitter and lingering, not sweet at all like the nose would indicate. Overall, a great beer that will only improve with cellaring. This is from yesterday’s release.

JBPortland (1293) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 23, 2015
12oz bottle pours dark red brown with small head. Tons of rich toffee, dark fruit, caramel, butterscotch, leather and oaky bourbon in the nose. Palate follows this profile with super creamy mouthfeel, well integrated oaky vanilla, caramel bread, touch of raisin, dried fruit. Finishes somewhat sweet with sticky caramel, vanilla, bourbon, dried dark fruit, chocolate, old leather. Top notch brew.

12 oz. bottle shared by Willrunforbeer. 2011 vintage. Dirty brown without head, aroma is awesome mild bourbon treatment sitting on top of raisins, sugar coated figs and burnt molasses.

For the flavor the bourbon is exactly what the flavor needed to help balance the overly sweet flavors. This variant is not as sweet as the base beer I sampled 2 minutes before this. Mouthfeel is slightly syrupy but again the bourbon transform it into a very nice slightly warming alcohol with a mild warming after the swallow. The bourbon works wonders for this. Great share Brian, owe you for this one!

12oz bottle from trade. 2011 vintage. Pours muddy brown without a head. Aroma is molasses, spice, vanilla. I could be sniffing a fresh baked cookie. The bourbon really helps balance this beer. Taste is molasses, raisin, date, vanilla, bourbon, oak in the finish. Great beer!
