Theydon_Bois (7937) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Tap at Capones Black Friday Bash, Norristown, PA 29/11/13. Mid black with a moderate light tan covering that clears to a swirl/edgework. Nose is treacle toffee, liqourice, spice, earthy cocoa, dark fruit tang. Taste comprises dark fruit, toffee, earthy cocoa, subtle bourbonic hit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light booze lick. Ok - lacks a little depth for my liking.

We waited for years, after first tasting this on draught & cask locally, for it to be bottled and sold. The wait was worth it. Absolute first-class. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boto (1827) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - NOV 17, 2013
750ml bottle: This one poured a very dark opaque brown color. There was just a bit of a tan head that doesn’t linger long or leave much lacing. The aroma is a little lighter than expected. Not too much bourbon to the nose. Bready, chocolate, roastiness, some pine and citrus hops. The taste is very good. The bourbon flavor is more subdued than some other bourbon barrel aged beers that I’ve had. Chocolate, some roastiness, somewhat bitter. Touch of sweetness in finish. Very Nice!

Westmeister (1699) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Draft in Athens, GA. Pours viscous black with thinner tan head. Smell is overwhelmingly bourbon and then some dark roasted malts. Taste is much the same with cola flavors. Seriously almost like a bourbon and coke. Or maybe I am just in Athens and have tailgating on my mind.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown with orange glints; tan head. Aroma is rather bourbon. Med body, or nearly. Flavor is bourbon, dark malt, a little treacle, some dark fruit, a little coffee or chocolate or something. Tasty stuff.

Lukaduke (2045) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Pours a rich burnt umber color with a two finger light khaki foam. The nose is soft with sweet chocolate and bourbon soaked tootsie roll, spicy vanilla bean and licorice. The palate follows... wow Im digging this lots of cola nut, round full soft mouthfeel, bourbon bite is apparent but dialed in with the roasted chocolate malt and traces of licorice, herbal spice and vanilla. Really loving this !

On tap at Bottle Revolution (Raleigh). Pours black with tan head. Strong bourbon aroma - almost to the point of being just bourbon. Very strong bourbon flavor - as if a shot if good bourbon were dropped into a darn fine black IPA. Tldr... Yummy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
