jbeatty (1104) - New York, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle, 2012 release, 12/5/2012. Pours deep brown, thin beige head, sudsy lacing and boozy legs. Aroma is a bit rough dark bready malts, sweet chocolate molasses, vanilla, big woody bourbon and booze. Taste is nutty, sweet caramel, roasted chocolate, bit of hoppiness, coconut, smooth bourbon character. Full, chewy body. Pretty nice, could be nicer with a bit more age for this vintage.

Lukaduke (2399) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours a hazy dull brown color with a fluffy foam... On the nose its big round and boozy, with rich brown sugar, molasses, a touch of earthy barrel notes and even some smokey peat. The palate is much of the same with rich mouthfeel and soft balance with flavors. The bourbon is definitely upfront but there is enough complexity in the bourbon and base beer for the final product to be pleasing and worth seeking out !

I’m 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.
