Tmoney99 (10090) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear ruby color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and dark bourbon wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy bourbon sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

brokensail (9943) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 28, 2012
The pour is dark brown with an off-white head. A little bit of roasted malt, licorice, vanilla, and toffee. Some molasses, a bit of fruit, and chocolate. Caramel sweetness, molasses, toffee, and whiskey. Light vanilla flavor, some dark fruit notes, and a touch of oak. Kind of all over the place, but enjoyable.

Shared bottle to snifter (big thanks to daknole for this one!). Looks good; dark and boozy with low carbonation. Tastes good too; much like it smells. A little busy, but good. Mouthfeel is a little thin for how big it is. Still, damn good!

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2012
750ml courtesy of thecheeseman. Bottle 207/240. The oatmeal and chocolate on the nose was very good. Black body good head wand some decent lace. The thick oatmeal presence along with the coco stood out the most with some boose in the mix. With the alcohol presence still easy on the palate. Good brew thanks was worth the wait.

madvike (2583) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle (#88) at Muckfest III shared by TheAlum...thanks Adam! - Pours with a deep brown body and a bubbly tan head. Nose is honey and sugar sweetness, leather, a bit of tobacco, brown sugar, figs, and some baking spice (allspice?). Taste is less sweet--plums, dark malt, and lots of brown sugar. A bit of whiskey as well, though I donít get any of the rum. Too sweet for my tastes.

Reynolds314 (2095) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Pretty good stuff here but a bit muddled like so many blended am strongs. The flavors are all sweet and boozy and rich and roasty but could be a bit cleaner.

Wow huge heavy complexity. You can pick out all the barrel treatments. And the rum big sound isnít infected! Hoo whoo!

Pours dark brown. Big on the nose and flavor. Complex and sweet, almost too sweet. Good almost great!
