Ughsmash (7253) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottled on 9/19/11. Poured medium-deep brown with a smoked tan head. The aroma was on the big side, with sweet whiskey, coffee, and burnt cocoa leading.. accents of vanilla, black pepper, and a kiss of smoke.. balance was excellent. The flavor found well-roasted coffee, licorice, and toasty cocoa at the core, with well-integrated peppery notes and smoky whiskey laced throughout.. warm through the finish, but just the right level of warm.. awesome stuff! Heavier-bodied with low-moderate carbonation.. a touch oily (a good thing).. the barrel played very well with the base beer.. loved it!

Scopey (8055) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle at Scope 5K, thanks to Leighton. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is dark chocolate, earth, rocky road, some acidity, wood and light whisky action. The taste is rich, roasty, toast, earth, dark chocolate, raisin, plum, cherry and molasses, with only a whisper of whisky. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Pretty tasty and nice depth. Good.

maneliquor (3372) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle shared at Scopey’s 5000th rate. I think thanks to Leighton but not sure. Black pour with a lightly tanned head which quickly disappears. Nose is full of whisky spice and milky chocolate. Quite a bit of vanilla, full of juicy raisins and has a hint of smoke. Complex but balanced nose and it’s good. Taste has plenty of dark fruit focus - sultana, raisin, prunes, followed by strong vanilla, milk chocolate and roasty coffee. Spice subtle on the finish. Mainly sweet with a little bitterness on the back end. A touch thin and lacks a little depth. A decent beer, I was probably expecting a little more from this barrel treatment

Theydon_Bois (11126) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle split at Scopey’s 5K Extravaganza of Oompah Band meets doorbell music, thanks to LKS - 15/02/14. Faded black with a light tan covering. Nose is dark malts, cocoa powder, dark toffee fudge, earthy, chocolate biscuit, subtle BA whiskydom. Taste comprises mellow chocolate, light spice, subtle scotch, earthy, molasses, brown sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Ok stuff, the alchohol is well integrated, the BA effect subtle but for me not the best in this series, lacks depth for ABV.

jayzz (466) - Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Dark caramel color and sweet whiskey aroma. Some bitter finish with a mostly sweet whiskey flavor. Reminds me of some of my favorite ports.

deyholla (7477) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a thin bubbly brown head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has strong roasted malts and bitter chocolate with a slight smokey whiskey note and a touch of dark grains. Flavor starts with bitter chocolate and dark grains and grows to have a touch of roasted malts and a bit of whiskey towards the finish.
