Something about this one didnít agree with me. MAripan and maraschino cherries dominate the smell. Flavor is sweet, boozy, but ultimately limp.

Bottle. Mahogony beer with a dark tan head. Bourbon and vanilla aroma with rich malt. Rich malt/caramel flavor with bourbon, light fruitiness, and light chocolate. Medium-plus bodied. Rich malt/caramel linger with fruitiness, bourbon, and vanilla.

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.

got to the tasting late there was still some in the bottle so it had set for an hour and was it ever ready to be drank. on that note it poured a taffy murky brown orange rich wood and Carmel notes taste was nice smoky wood and sweet sugars it was more than i had expected very well rounded

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.
