hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Murky, dark brown ale (nearly black) with little to no head. The lavish bouquet is an excellent marriage of chocolate, cologne, fudge, coconut and a subtle note of bourbon. Full-bodied and ultra creamy with tickling carbonation. The flavor provides dark chocolate, whiskey and fudge. Deeply roasted, bittersweet, warming finish. World class beer shared by darkguardian. Thanks, Chris!

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Tiny bottle, #202 of 2483, bottled on June 08, 2010; courtesy of blomster. Thanks a ton, Christer! Pours a deep, slightly oily, dark-brown color with a very light formation of bubbles. Kind of a nondescript aroma, showing some ashiness, dark fruits, and pronounced charred oak / bourbon barrel notes; just seems a bit tight, without that penetrable richness of the best examples; nothing harsh, though. Medium-full body; very light carbonation; modest amounts of a pronounced bourbon and alcoholic presence; smooth and reasonably tempered overall. Medium-high levels of charred barrel notes, light ashiness, some caramel and dark, bitter chocolate, and a sharp-edged bourbon that, while not necessarily rough, never quite opens up to the layered richness that one would most want to extract from this sort of a project; still, a very solid rendition, if a touch too charred and ashy overall for my palate. Lasting finish of dark chocolate, plenty of charred barrel notes (nothing acrid), and reasonably dry overall.

Bottle courtesy of darkguardian, what?? Oak and roasted malt aromas. Fantastic taste, well balanced with oak, vanilla, chocolate, and roasted malt flavors. Can’t wait to try the Wild Turkey version....
