750 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a clear dark amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have bourbon and vanilla over top of doughy bread, caramel, some fruity character, wood with light spices. The bourbon was pretty much dominant the first time I tried this.

Deep amber pour, fluffy tan head. Flavors hit with some doughy malt, spent grain and then lead into vanilla and oak from the bourbon barrels.

Boutip (4636) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a small foamy head with limited retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of caramelized malt with some bourbon notes and some woody notes. Taste is a weird mix between some woody notes with some bourbon some caramelized malt notes though not as much residual sugars as I would have expected. Body is about average with good carbonation and some warming alcohol. Disappointed by this beer which lacks the balance I was hoping for and veers close to the messy category.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle thanks to brokensail. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of a great bourbon note with some sweet grains with a bit of caramel. Flavor has a bit of light fruits but is mainly toffee and bourbon with a hint of caramel.
