Iím not sure who was the one who shared this at Blue Lobster, but big thanks! Nose is a deep, well-integrated bourbon presence alongside some sweet caramel. Light oak and vanilla. Flavor is bourbon forward with good backing sweetness and oak. Full body and fairly viscous. No real booze. Quite nice.

Big bourbon vanilla light green apple a touch of dust and dark sweet fruit. Pours murky brown orange, soft foam islands and a beige ring. Flavors of bourbon, vavnilla, toffee bread green apple, a soft metallic notes, earthy bitterness in the finish as well as soft peated malt. Lingering fruity sweetness, sticky body but with a fizzy light almost airy finish.

Never a been a huge fan of regular Big Sound but lets see what a barrel does .. . deep tan maroon, touch murky .. . mild foam .. . chocolate tar, boozy chocolate, and molasses whiskey .. . quick finish .. . complex but no body or character- the wax was nice though .. . . Iíve got a pilotís license. Do I go on about it? No, I donít.

jackl (3862) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle @ Bruceís birthday tasting. The pourís deep brown with no head. The aromaís rich raisin cake, treacle, yule log. Basically this smells like a booze-soaked dessert tray. Further notes of vanilla, chocolate etc. The taste is very sweet, rich toffee and caramel candy. Plenty of bourbon accents (vanilla, wood). Sheet cake. Slightly hot finish. Oily and smooth, supple mouthfeel. Overall, not a particularly nuanced beast. Decent stuff, but a bit too one-dimensional to be elite.

Theydon_Bois (7000) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle at Bruceís 30th celebrations, 08/02/13, thanks to the Jack for sharing this one ! Very dark murky mahogony brown with a thin tan head that dissipates to the edge. Nose is dark malts, bourbon, wood, dark toffee, dark fruits. Taste is dark fruits, figs, nutty, dark caramel, booze, dark malts. Fulish bodied beer with moderate carbonation lending towards a dry boozey finish. Decent.

Bottle thanks to John. Pours a dark brown with beige head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, booze, vanilla, and smoke. Thick mouthfeel with bourbon and nice roast in the finish. Really enjoyed this one.
