flatmatt (1155) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2013
On tap at MBGSF 2013. Pours black with a light tan head. Aromas of soy sauce, cocoa dark malt, dark fruit, plus bourbon throughout. Flavors of "green" soy sauce, cocoa, raisin, light roasted coffee, with bourbon mixing well into it. Very much like the original Batch 9,000, but with more refinement with age.

Pours deep brown/black with no head. Aroma is mildly boozy with some brown sugar and mild vanilla. Flavor has nice brown sugar and bourbony vanilla...light oak and booze...hides abv fabulously...hint of dark fruit. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish warms with dark fruit/bourbon/brown sugar.

A year or two of age on this one would probably do it some good. One of the best barrel aged beers Iíve had. Despite the high ABV this beer is excellent. Nice and smooth through the last sip. The last sips boozieness is paired with a sweet like honey smack in the lips. Dark creamy chocolate mixed with some bourbon for the nose and sweetness on the tip of the tongue warms up as it reaches the back of the palate and booze that is mellowed out with sweet on the finish. Mmmmm mmmm good this one is awesome.

Bottle shared by John, thanks! Enjoyed along side a regular 9000. Pour is deep dark brown with some faint purple notes. Aroma and flavor are loaded with sweet malt and deep dark fruity notes. Also toffee notes, sweet molasses, and faint basement notes. The aroma of the BA version had slightly more vanilla notes, but the difference was not overwhelming for me. Iím fine with that as I love the original.

neepsntatties (1238) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle courtesy of "hannont". Colour...cloudy dark brown with a thin tan head. Nose...sweet, sugary, toffee like and redolent with sugared raisins and whisky soaked plums. Palate...lightly frothy, very oaky and quite tannic! Thereís loads of booze here as is evident by the 14.8%. The fruit that predominates are dates, Italian prunes and black currants and then thereís some Turkish delight just to top it all off. What a boozy delight!

Huge thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this growler. Very dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is full of bourbon notes, with a lot of maple, vanilla and chocolate coming through. The flavor is also very nice. I get a lot of whiskey character, as well as some maple, bourbon, chocolate and light vanilla. There is also some roasted malt thrown in. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

At first I was all about this beer but it wears down quickly. Nose is rich and fruity w lots of booze. Not really a typical stout flavor profile more like a barley wine. Tough to drink a whole glass.

tap on Feb 23 at Trion - Pours black with a very small tan head. It smells boozy and mostly of bourbon. The flavor features a strong bourbon character with dense, rich dark malt and alcohol. It has a very full body and a long, roast, boozy, bourbon finish. The bourbon really dominates so fortunately I like bourbon. Itís hot. Perhaps the abv has gotten too high. Itís tasty now though I think it will age, mellow, and be better.
