Old notes. 750ml bottle #216/240. My notes are sparse, I guess because it didn’t do much for me. Aroma of big, chewy, sticky malt. Lots of vanilla from the wood. A good dose of alcohol despite only being 8.5%. Pours hazed, cloudy dark amber/brown with a thick khaki head. Flavor has a huge wood presence. Vanilla, sweet malt, toffee caramel, alcohol and more wood. Sticky body. boozy. Dry finish with a massive wood presence throughout the beer. Very unbalanced. Thanks Bob!

Bottle from JdubFL - thanks! Reddish-brown pour with an aroma of vanilla, bourbon, dark fruits and brown sugar. Flavor has maple, vanilla/wood/bourbon, chocolate, dark fruits, and assorted sweet goodies. Monster mouthfeel - this is awesome and gives Alesmith’s BA Wee Heavy a run for its money.

bottle #36/246. Pours a copper with a brief tan head. Nice legs. Notes of chocolate, peat, scotch, bourbon, vanilla, bread, grass, cherry, and toffee. Sharp boozy finish. some coffee notes as well. A little too hot. Could use some time to mellow out. Good though, I enjoyed it!

A ridiculous cost of $25 for this beer. Aroma has cheap rye whiskey, which is also present in the flavor. Hazy brown. Rich malt and some earth. Dry, with scarcely any hops. Unfortunately the bourbon is not well done, and I think it really hurts the beer.
