deyholla (10220) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2010
On tap at Jackie O’s during the Barrel Aged Beer Festival. Poured a hazy yellow brown with a light brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma was full of sweet grain and caramel with a nice sweet bourbon note. Flavor was similar with the sweet grain and caramel being backed by a nice bourbon note. Beer went down smooth as well.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 21, 2010
Cask at ChurchKey. Pours a beautiful deep ruby, dark brown with a healthy, rocky tan head that has excellent retention but no lace. Very nice oak, bourbon, vanilla extract, cinnamon apples, burnt currants in the nose. Taste is creamy, boozy, medium bodied with thick bourbon, vanilla, and spicy characters. I was thinking this was going to be terrible- a barrel aged version of the normal Brooklyn brown ale. But this a new beast altogether unless the base beer magically became something on a whole new level overnight.

j12601 (9568) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 11, 2010
On tap at the Golden Rail. Pours a deep ruby brown, crimson highlights, and a medium sized white head. Sweet and musty with light bourbon notes, plums, chocolate, roast and some dehydrated bananas. Medium bodied, big vanilla, nutty and sweet. Lots of bourbon and vanilla on the finish with some syrupy warming alcohol.

mR_fr0g (9550) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2010
On cask at the White Horse Parsons Green London. Pours dark brown with a thin whispy head. Aroma is of bourbon with caramel. I have never had a beer that tasted more like a JD and coke. The flavour is a sweet bourbon with caramel and vanilla.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2009
Cask at Swift Hibernian Lounge. The nose is quite lovely. Soft vanilla and a bit of cocoa with a kiss of light herbal character. The flavour shows a light peppery booziness over a light bourbon sweetness. There is a touch of rye-like spiciness and a little bit of cocoa on the back. Easy to drink with a nice combination of the malt and the barrel. Soft and sweet but fairly complex. Pretty tasty.

750 ml bottle shared by eyedrinkale at Kuhnhenn in 08 and again from a growler picked up in Kentucky in 2010 from notes. Pours a hazy caramel brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, toffee, some toasted malt, stronger bourbon, a splash of vanilla and wood, a little funk, interesting.

Draught at CBF 2010. High creamy off-white lasting head. Clear dark brown body. Fruity mild cocoa aroma. Cream choccolate fruit flavor, very smooth. Low carbonation. Long sweet aftertaste.

Hand bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a deep brown body and an off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, oatmeal, oak, brown sugar, rye and barrel. Taste is alcohol, brown sugar, banana esters, fruit. Light bubbles. Pretty darn good.
