Brown body with strange "chunks" floating around in the glass.Aroma is brown sugar,caramel,malt,and alcohol.Flavor is much of the same.The mouthfeel was very slimy and kinda freaked me out.

iowaherkeye (2694) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - APR 22, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 750mL bottle, 47/246. Clear deep ruby with a half finger beige head, fading to a thick ring before long. Same toffee caramel nose as the regular version with a nice bourbon backbone. Flavor adds some dried cherries and raisins with plenty of bourbon and alcohol heat. Dry finish with a fair amount of booze, bitterness at a 3. Medium body with light prickly carbonation. Better than I’d expected, but I like the regular version better. 7-3-8-4-13--3.6 Rerate, just released 2012 batch. Not all that bourbon or boozy, but most definitely present with a nice toasted coconut vanilla creme hazelnut thing going on. Good brown sugar caramel sweetness. 8-4-8-4-16--4.0

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark brune body with an off white head. Sweet and malty aroma, light caramel little barrel. Sweet and malty hints of peat, and some light bourbon undertones, a mild phenol character with a stronger milky finish. Not bad.

nimbleprop (5083) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 9, 2010
750ml bottle pours a translucent, caramel brown with very little creamy beige head. Aroma is vanilla, butterscotch, apples, pears. Flavor is sweet, caramel, butterscotch. Missing the peat of a Scotch ale. Full bodied, sweet finish.

Travlr (12951) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 6, 2010
Bottle courtesy of ryan - thanks! Muddy, chunky brown, edge head, no lacing. Aroma of alcohol, chocolate. Taste is sweet butterscotch and chocolate. Too light bodied, too sweet, especilay for a BA.

GT2 (8671) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 5, 2010
UPDATED: APR 26, 2010 4/5/2010: 750mL courtesy of ryan. Pours a muddy brown/amber with a thin yellow head that leaves spotty lace. Aroma is toffee, caramel, raisin, not too much barrel. Taste is loaded with sweet toffee, gold raisins. No complexity added from the barrel and the aging has probably done this more harm than good. Still a little boozy somehow. 7/4/7/3/13

4/25/2010:Re-rate from my own cellared bottle (27/246). Aroma is definitely bourbon- though muted- it is very soft, full of vanilla, coconut, butter. Taste is rich, well balanced, malty, raisins, prunes, chocolate. 8/4/8/4/15

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2010
Bottled shared by ryan, opened a day earlier. Murky brown pour with little carbonation (probably a result of it being open for a day). Slight whiskey aroma with licorice notes. Malty flavor with bitter coffee and earth. Some chocolate. Very harsh finish.
