phaleslu (6616) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle shared by someone at the Jackie-O’s weekend bottle share at Baymont. 2011 vintage. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Pretty simple - bourbon, vanilla, oak, char, caramel, and brown sugar. So many malts, but none come through in a pronounced way. Just sweet and bourbony and malty in general. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Good stuff.

Salmoniform (836) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Poured to glass. Deep amber reddish hue with tan head. Aroma is vanilla, oak, bourbon, malt, spiciness, ethanol. Mouthfeel is great with a full body and nice carbonation. Taste is sweet up front with a nice sweetness followed by a balanced bitterness and a drying ethanol & oak finish. Overall this brew is REALLY good!

750 shared by Luke. Pours a dark reddish color with a small grey head. A big sweet bourbon nose, light fruit, yeasty, not getting much in terms of an infection in this. Sugary sweet malty base, big sweet Pappy of course, light cherries, vanilla hot bourbon heat. This is pretty awesome. The palate is pretty thin. I think any sourness here is from the sour mash bourbon flavors.

Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours hazy deep mahogany brown with a small off-white head. The nose is sweet, vanilla, oak, fudge, coconut, dried fruits, toffee and some creaminess. The taste is wood, toasty, acidic, chewy malt, light tang, bourbon, warming alcohol, oxidised notes and damp wood. Fullish body, fine carbonation and chewy mouth-feel. Sweet, sticky and a bit hot. So-so.

Theydon_Bois (9280) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle split at Chriso, thanks to my man in PDX - ’Endo’, 10/07/14. Murky dark amber with a moderate beige head that dissipates to a swirl and edgeing. Nose is earthy wood, good bourbonic vibes, dates, fruit cake, candied fruit peel, light spice, boozey underpin, toffee. Taste comprises rich dark fruits, caramelised sugars, Xmas pudding, subtle bourbon effect. Medium + body, fine carbonation, sweet licks in the close. Solid American strong, lughtly warming boozed in the close and the bourbon is well pitched.

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.
