Pours copper with a thin, quickly receding head, a little sticky lacing. Nose is all bourbon, but a really expensive, aged bourbon. Taste is similar, whiskey, stone fruit, toffee, caramel. Glad I got a chance to try it. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dfearnley (1612) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2016
Bottle to pint glass (2009 vintage) Consummation: Wow...this is an old ale? Caramel hits me right off the bat and it lasts throughout. There’s a lot of bourbon too and I’m glad I let this sit for a couple years. This is incredibly complex. I get clove, malt, orange, pomelo, caramel, burnt sugar. Adjunct: Caramel bourbon aroma; dark amber, no head; medium bodied, with some warmness

thefederalist (306) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle. 2013 Vintage. Pours dark ruby brown with a off-white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma of sweet malt, clove, raisin, alcohol. Flavor is sweet, but balanced by the enormous gravity. Hugely complex. Body is thick but not cloying. Fantastic. A world class beer.
