yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Poured a murky brown color. Aroma is sweet, malty, some wood and light bourbon but alcohol it is noticeable. Flavor is sweet with vanilla, bourbon, cream and raisins. Very smooth overall.

1st batch, 2009. Pours a rich brown with a thin mocha head. Aroma of bourbon oak and vanilla. Taste follows, smooth. Aging has done this well! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Bottle from CCB Big Sound Release Party. Pours a muddy dark brown to black with a massive tan creamy head that settles slowly. Aroma is sweet and malty with subtle bourbon notes and other notes of vanilla, carmel, toffee, ripe dark fruit, some hints of toffee and wood. Flavor is sweet and malty with notes of bourbon, vanilla, wood, caramel, toffee, chocolate, some hints of a light nuttiness. Generally medium body with a pleasing malty, light bourbon finish. Bourbon definitely does not overpower this beer but complements all the great flavors lurking about.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 16, 2009
2009 Bottle sample at Noogfest High 5 thanks to jcwattsrugger. Poured brown with a tan head that settles to a ring. Nice scotch aroma with a vanilla and toffee. The flavor also found vanilla and scotch with a nut and malt background. Medium body, slight alcohol warming, creamy smooth. Awesome!

hombrepalo (1800) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2014
ampled at DLD 2014. Thanks guy! This was the better of the Cigar City brews I had that day. Muddy brown color with no head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, caramel, chocolate and cherry. Chocolatey and toffee/caramel flavor to start with vanilla and oak before a bourbon and chocolate finish. Really good stuff.

Jesterdeal (1789) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Aroma of roasty sugar, bourbon, vanilla and oak. Pours brown with a nice blanket. Taste us sweet with caramel, slight mocha, and molasses. Thin in color but thick in sugar. Great stuff.

EdKing (1788) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle care of Bruce at his B’day.Dark brown, murky, tan head. Nose is lots and lots of vanilla, lots and lots of lactic milkiness, creamy, oaky, old wood, bourbon sweetness. Taste is very soft. Creamy, lactic, milky, vanilla, bourbon sweet and sourness. Mainly just soft sweetness and lots of vanilla and creaminess. It’s not overwhelming like some bourbon aged stuff but it is sweet.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Deep dirty browns, his khaki foamy head recedes into a khaki collar while the middle is marked by random bubble scatterings. When I tease his murky depths, I find lace kindly left behind. Dipping my nose in for the kill, I am suddenly standing before a never-ending supply of caramel nougat truffles dusted with cinnamon powder while rich vanilla perfumes the air. Graham crackers crunch under my watchful nose and bourbon oozes out of the porous wood barrels in which they used to rest. An interesting addition, maraschino cherries flitter about the wood, bourbon, and caramel nougat truffles before one last kiss of treacle brings me into supping beervana. His body is sublimely smooth and marked by creamy sweetness. Toasted marshmallows find themselves right at home with the graham crackers and vanilla while the back of his swallow pierces with heavy caramel sweetness. As I bite into each quaff, I find his soft caramels and cinnamon dusted truffles filled with the richest of bourbons. Slivers of vanilla extract can be found as I dig through each flavorful quaff. Bourbon warms my breath and the gentle dryness of wood settles atop my tongue for that always classic interplay of palate cleansing and thirst inducing pleasures. A beer to be supped slow and at room temperature, I find that the more he warms the more his flavors melt into each other. Filled with warm fuzzies, I settle in for a slow session of beervana inspired by Cigar City Brewing.

bubbleflubber (1746) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Extraordinary!! On tap at the Winter Warmer 2012, this pours mahogany with a thin tan ring of suds. The sweet bouquet is of oak, vanilla, whiskey, toffee and caramel. The ABV is almost inconsequential, with such a silky palate. Just gorgeous, truly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
