Thanks to drowland for the share! Big rich barrel aged from CC. Pours red brown. The aroma hits with bourbon but gives way with caramel, dried fruit, burnt wood. The taste follows with a lot of woody bourbon burn and dark chocolate sweetness. Finished slightly acidic and sour. Rich mouthfeel.

Ferris (2889) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle - Molasses, dark chocolate and a liquorice. Jet black with a thin brown head. Bourbon and molasses with some rich syrupy dark chocolate. Very big and rich, heavy mouthfeel.

3/8/14. 750mL bottle thanks to burg326. Dark brown soda looking pour but with a small tan head. Huge, HUGE bourbon barrel aroma, lots of bourbon, some fudginess, caramel, vanilla - honestly hard to tell where barrel ends and beer begins - mostly barrel, but I sort of enjoy it. Okay flavor, lots of barrel again, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, fudge, very sweet, a dose of ash, and an almost lemony acidic tartness lingers in a way. Not bad. Tastes like Cigar City.

jackl (4292) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle @ His Great Return Tasting. Cheers to Paulo for providing such a ’yet very expensive’ brew! The pour’s deep brown with a tiny tan head. Loads of roasty, ashy malt aromas. Burnt wood, cocoa powder. A bit of roasted coffee and burnt brown sugar. The taste is pretty robust, outsized. Big caramel and toffee. Vanilla sundae. Roasted grain, big earthy char. Full body, oily. Soft carbonation. Overall, solid, but nothing particularly distinctive or memorable. Decent.

hopscotch (8781) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Dark brown – nearly black – pour with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The bouquet furnishes a medley of fudge, brownies, raw white oak and bourbon. Full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor presents succulent toasted coconut and tangy bourbon. Finishes lightly acidic and quite warming. World class bottle of beer provided by ctipping!

BoBoChamp (5353) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 27, 2014
75cl, no mention of ABV, new exclusive American brew Anno 2013, thx to Secret Santa!, complex Porter, roasted/woody and slightly alcoholic/fruity, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, small head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle split at the Jack is back tasting, big thanks to Mr He Who Is Back for this number, 06/03/14. Black with a moderate tan covering that clears to the edge. Nose is rich chocolate, subtle BA effect, Bounty bar, woody booze and light bourbonics, pinch of spice. Taste comprises coconut shavings, rich chocolate, light booze, dark toffee fudge, light mineral pangs, spice. Medium + bodiment, fine carbonation. Solid stuff.

TheEpeeist (3272) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2014
25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a tan haze. Nose is bourbon, chocolate, wood and clay. Rich and creamy medium to full body with a tang. Tastes like a black and tan brownie; chocolate, butterscotch and coffee with lingering barrel notes.
