jredmond (7241) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Draft at St. Stephen’s with pat. Pours a pith black body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is Bourbon, sweet roasted malts, alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of roasted chocolate malts, alcohol in the aftertaste.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
A Sim rate (Extreme Beer Festival): Such a subtle bourbon in the aroma which is rare for a barrel-aged beer of this kind. Smooth coconut, nuts and rich chocolate in the flavour. So incredibly subtle again for a barrel-aged beer. Wood and caramel in the finish. Damn. Absolute win!

nimbleprop (7096) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Several glasses on tap at Churchkey in Washington D.C. Served in a snifter, pours an opaque black with a soft, creamy white head. Aroma is heavy with vanilla, chocolate, whiskey, toasted malts. Flavor was very well balanced, vanilla and chocolate, wood, rum, malts, toasted grains, nuts, coffee. Full bodied without being overwhelming, light carbonation. I wish they would bottle this, but if they did I’m sure it would cost $20.

solidfunk (7007) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Wonderful beer. Pours black with good mocha head and lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, roast malt, some nut and some subtle bourbon notes. Looks syrupy but consistency feels more thick on the tongue than syrupy. Booze well-disguised. Finishes bittersweet. Tap at brewery.

radagast83 (6962) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a dark, nearly pitch black color with a nice brown, quickly dissipating head. Aroma was lots and lots of wood, plenty of mellowed vanilla notes. Lots of bourbon, some mellowed roasted malts, lingering chocolate. Very smooth and drinkable for 9.5%.

onceblind (6741) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2012
At Avery’s 2012 Strong Ale Fest. Clear dark brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma is kinda oak-y toffee, with a bit of spicy "blackness". Odd. Flavor is creamy chocolate with a slightly bitter oak tone with a bourbon/vanilla shade. But the texture tastes a little watered down.

bytemesis (6307) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Tap. Pours opaque black, huge tan creamy head, great lacing. Aroma is bourbon, roared malt, molasses. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, light bitter. Light body, high carbonation. Not surprisingly, if you age a bad beer in bourbon barrels, you get a bad, bourbony beer.
