Sampler at the Bull & Bush Pub & Brewery, Denver 11/10/2007 Strong sherry aroma. Dark red coloured smooth on the palate and strong in alcohol with a slightly dry warming whisky finish.

Dark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Big sweet aroma oak barrel and whiskey aroma. This was very sweet bourbon flavored with a big alcohol finish. This would be a perfect after dinner drink.

bleeng (1523) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2007
2005 vintage served during the 2007 GABF. Solid black pour with no head. Nose of malt, chocolate, caramel, alcohol. Very smooth and a bit carbonated. Taste is sweet, chocolately, and the alcohol is well hidden for this monster beer. Almost too drinkable and dangerous.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Boulder Strong Fest 2010. Red/brown orange and black... this beer looked wild with almost no head. Aroma is sticky, sugary, pecan pie. Flavor is boiled down sugar water, peach, and other fruit. I burped pecan pie while drinking this. Brownie with nuts in flavor and burning booze. As it warms, a little too artificial cough syrupy, but not really. Similar texture though. Somehow still really awesome...top couple of this fest.

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy amber brown beer. Low carbonation. Sweet thick barleywine with hints of vanilla wood. Very smooth indeed. Dangerously easy drinking!

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2007
On tap @ 5th Annual Boulder Strong Ale Fest. Definately one of the better barrel aged beers of the night. Balanced, it took on the character of the barrel (oak, vanilla, bourbon, coconut) and also the maltiness of the original beer, with hints of caramel and fruit. A nice brew.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 24, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours the color of bourbon, a clear dark reddish brown. Has a medium white head that thins out fast. Super thick pancake syrup. It’s a bit over the top with all the sweetness. I think this beer could benefit from more attenuation to a lower gravity or at least they could have used some really big-ass hops to balance out all the sugars.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2007
sampled on tap at the 5th Boulder Strong Ale Fest. my notes are short on this but flavor has lots of caramel, toffee, too sweet, hints of bourbon, and warming alcohol. tasty stuff.

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2007
(Draught) Pours a mahogany body with a small beige head. Aroma of raisins, brown sugar, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor of maple syrup, caramel, biscuit, molasses, dark fruits, and vanilla with a sticky finish.

Fresh wood barrel, syrup/walnut aroma. An apple-cideresque hazy brown. A nice warming whiskey barrell syrupy walnut flavor.
