fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle from BevX360
Hazy light amber color. The vanilla barrel aroma marries well with the malt, mellow result. Good body strength, moderately sweet, nice malt flavor, with a clear oak barrel action, and light banana traces; the alcohol is well managed, but it adds a nice edge.
Quite good beer.

Ferris (5001) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle - Light stone fruits and sweet honey notes. Cloudy gold with a decent beige head. Fruity, bubblegum, stone fruit, light booze and some nice sweetness. Although not my style, quiet nice

mcberko (7229) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of pitted fruits, some caramel, and subtle wine notes. Flavour is quite sweet, with caramel malt, candied pitted fruits, and brown sugar. Not really getting any of the wine barrels. It’s just a nice, sweetened strong ale with pitted fruits. ABV is well-hidden. Good stuff.

This one poured a golden color with a white head. Aroma was of Belgian yeast, candy sugar, red wine, and tannins. Flavor was lightly funky, barrel character, some sweetness, and grapes.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle:   Dirty orangish straw, thick, moderate foamy off-white head, nice lacing.   Vinous nose, a bit sweet, a touch bready.   Vinous and oaky on the tongue, warming as well.   Can feel the 10%, albeit its not hot.   Smooth, a little buttery sweet but not in a bad way.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Sweet finish, bready, oak, vinous, with a very soft fruity flair.   Decent concoction.

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Pours a golden ,color with two fingers of fizzy white foam. Lots of sweet corn pops, spicy yeast, round cereal grain, toasted caramel some underlying complexity of tannic fruit but it is very subtle. Lots of carbonation.
