hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2010
bottle 101/246 by way of dak on 3/21/2010. very dark reddish orange shade of brown... murky with a beige head. loads of green pepper in the aroma along with lactose, brown sugar, figs, cake, a touch of chocolate and some toasted nuttiness. the flavor is the same... very rich and caramel-y. i can’t help but think that this is not as good as the original... 7/5/7/4/15/3.8

Bottle at Pilsner Pete’s RBSG and then again at my house. What are the odds of getting two bourbon barrel aged Big Sounds in one week in NJ? Apparently pretty good. Pours a brownish almost black color with tan head. Nose is coffee, toffee, smoked wood, molasses and brown sugar. Taste is lightly smoked wood, toffee, vanilla, alcohol, maple brown sugar and light molasses.
