hopscotch (9163) - 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 (3207) - 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....

SirLimpsalot (2159) - SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2011
Helt svart vätska uten skum. Mycket vinos doft samt lakrits och ek. Len smak; choklad, lakrits och ek. Tjock oljig vätska. Generösa vinösa toner och en brule-aktig eftersmak (kandissocker) Brända dock diskreta toner.

wavers1 (877) - Notown, California, USA - FEB 15, 2011
nice brew. a lil flat like usual, i love just a touch more carb in the back of the palate myself. still a dynamite brew. excellent and interesting spirit profile on top of a typical tarry, heavy de molen stout. i preferred the wild turkey itself slightly, but this one has a probably a more complex barrel profile.

Beer4000 (4476) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2011
180 ml bottle. Black body with a nice, small off-white head. Aroma has oak, roasted malt, vanilla and red wine. Flavor is sweet roasted malt, bitter, dry fruit oak and warming strong red wine. A bit strange to smell and taste the red wine instead of bourbon, but so it is. A lovely and complex beer.
