4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle courtesy of beerlando, thanks a ton man! pours a nice deep brown with a dark brown head that is very thick and creamy. it doesn’t leave any lacing, but in my dfh glass it leaves a viscous wine like ring with legs on each sip marking your place. very cool. the aroma is big bourbon, lots of nice wood, earthy hops and malts. nice complex flavor profile, excellent body and mouth feel. lots of nice wood, and some tropical floral notes keeping making themselves vaguely known on the tongue and the nose. overall an excellent beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt, woody with a small alcohol aroma. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Heavy bourbon woody and dark sweet flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Ian. Crazy full flavor to this one, deep overtones of coffee, bourbon, with the faintest taste of the alcohol. Age would do it well.

12oz btl wax top shared thanks to Kristina. Nice chocolate malty aroma with some raisin notes as well as vanilla. Great taste of sweet malty chocolate and a great balanced sourness to it, just right. Wish I got to take this down more often.

Wax topped 12 oz bottle: Thanks to Jon for these! Pours a rich dark brown and a small tan head. Has a crazy complex aroma of bourbon, raisins, chocolate, vanilla,and burnt malts. Medium up front flavors of sweet chocolate and toffee. Finishes with bourbon overtones and dark fruits. Nice body and tasty overall, though a bit sweet for me right now. Me thinks this will age well.

Huge thanks to daknole as usual. Bottle pours deep brown with a tan head. Aroma is f’n amazing showing notes of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, bourbon, tobacco, dark fruit, oak and roasted malt. Flavor shows the same with some vanilla and a touch of rye showing through. Overall body is full and viscous. Starts out sweet and finishes a touch sour with some roasted bitterness. A sipper but damn good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cigar city capricho 4. 12oz bottle from Jason... Pours a mostly stouty
albeit a bit thin with a wispy light tan head... Smooth bourbon and
vanilla notes, some additional fruity notes from the bourbon as well
as chocolate... Flavors are sweet upfront with soma caramel malt and
chocolate. A hint of sourness in the finish with an earthy dry
bitterness coming in at the very tailend.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle:   Pours black, moderate to large frothy brown head, fairly nice lacing.   Sweet woody aroma, slight campfire and peat.   Sweet smokey caramel, unripened fruit (of the pale variety), malty, very malty, low hop profile.   Has a slight Bourbon/Whiskey background.   Some slight dark pitted fruit to round out the backside.   Lots going on here.   I keep sipping to try and figure it out.   Exit is a little tart.   I dont know why but the aroma also reminds me of this Norwegian Gummy candy.   Just smells so tasty!   Fresh cedar like finish, or shaven white oak.   Its somewhat roasty, with fruity and barrel aged character.   Pretty damn tasty.   Thanks to fogdog for sending me a few of these!
