douglas88 (8397) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2009
750 ml bottle thanks to my hook up- Dave! Shared with a few guys at the massive tasting. Pours a pure black color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet fruit, nutty notes, light wood. The flavor is similar; sweet toasted malts, nutty flavors, light dark fruit, a noticeable barrel but not overly so. Quite drinkable and tasty.

Pours a cloudy brown mud, full sheet. Big bourbon, vanilla. And notes of choc. In the nose. Big bourbon notes valong with a thick chocolatey malt character and background booziness. Very nice and warming with sophisticated bourbon and malt and pretty agressive hopping.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2009
25.4 oz bottle. Deep purple brown with a thin tan coating. Massive spicy nose of prune, peat, vanilla, scotch and bourbon. Zesty carb cuts through a rather full body. Taste is woody molasses and currants, scotch then huge bourbon lingering through the finish. Over the top but it works for me.

JohnC (3004) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Thanks to beerlando for this brew It pours dark, opaque brown with a touch of red highlights and has a thin yellow/brown head. Creamy on the tongue, it has a bit of a sticky taste with some nice maltiness. The barrel aging plays well in the background.

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.
