jackl (4932) - 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 (9509) - 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 (5759) - 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 (9915) - 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 (3399) - Media, 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.

Jack is back tasting at Bruce’s. Thanks to Paul. Almost opaque dark brown beer, good bubbly pale tan head. Light palate, smooth, fine carbonation. Smooth dark malt, quite a light touch. Mild dark chocolate. Mellow.bourbon. Whisper of vanilla wood. Smooth finish. Well behaved and mellow for a big ba beer.

Leighton (11855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Paul. Pours deep brown with a frothy tan head. Lovely aroma, lots of burnt marshmallows, milk chocolate, a bit of torched wood. Medium to big sweet flavor with rich chocolate, burnt toffee, more torched marshmallows, figs, raisins, mild earth. Full bodied with fine carbonation and creamy texture. Lightly warming to finish, mild milk chocolate, toasted bread, more dark fruits, touches of burnt wood. Good one. Nicely balanced.

Scopey (7394) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle shared at Bruce’s. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is fudge, treacle, oily, wood, bourbon, vanilla, fruit cake and toasted coconut. The taste is bitter-sweet, aniseed, toasty, wood, bourbon, earth, cocoa, light vanilla, spice, warming alcohol and dark fruit in the background. Medium-full body, fine carbonation and chewy mouth-feel. Very nice on the nose, but barrel aging doesn’t improve the base beer much. Decent.

brystmar (1289) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Dark brown -- nearly black -- pour yields scant manila lace. Good retention, though, and the lace swirls up top long after.

Heavy barrel character, super dry, pretty complex finish as it descends. Dark fruits, sweetness from the barrel, bone dry finish. Low carb. The 11% is completely hidden, even at room temp. Impressive.

Amazing barrel aged stout, good barrel notes, very subtle and extremely complex a rock star beer
