Bottle. Bourbon, lactic caramel malt, and straw aroma. Cloudy brown with small head. Sweet bourbon, caramel malt, and moderately bitter herbal hay and alcohol flavor. Boozy finish. Okay but not worth the price.

Benzai (11825) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2016
Sampled from bottle @ "Het is allemaal de schuld van Koen" tasting. Clear ruby red to amber color, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, some alcohol, firm maltyness, overripe fruits. Medium body, a bit fizzy carbonation. Hmm ok beer.

Barrel and some pertinent buttery in the relatively light aroma (compared to Stone Double Bastard Ale in the Rye). In quite sharp taste - barrel, hops bitterness, vanilla and, unfortunately, some alcohol notes. Quite good though.

mcberko (11117) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2016
500mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber brown with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out notes of bourbon, medium smoke, vanilla and caramel malts. Flavour brings out notes of vanilla and bourbon upfront, followed by a touch of smoke, resinous hops and caramel malts. A little murky, but the barrels are used beautifully here. Extreme but pleasantly so. A touch inferior to the "in the Rye" version I just had, but it’s excellent nonetheless.

Good but underwhelming given the number of fabulous BBA beers around these days. Touch of smoke in the aroma is nice but it’s absent from the taste.

DutchDrebus (5275) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle @ joes goes whale hunting. Ruby colour with a small off-white head. Smells barley wine, rye, sweet. Tastes heavy, malty, barley wine, rye, alcohol. Full body, soft carbo.

solidfunk (6479) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Pretty good stuff. Well balanced. Smoky, with some caramelized malt. Pours amber with good head and lacing. Finishes with some light sweetness and some roast. Bottle shared at tasting.

Ron (3274) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle. Nose of bourbon, smoke, caramel, vanilla. Lovely red-brown color with lace. Sweet bourbon and caramel flavor, toffee, hops and alcohol to balance, making it a bit hot and burning. Silky, oily, decent palate, sweet and boozy.

In the Christmas 2-pack - I enjoyed this much more than the single arrogant rye one. Similar barley-ish nose full of booze fruit and caramel, but the body and taste was much better with this one. Candy-ish sweet stick notes perfectly fused with the warm booze. Very hazy dark orange.

50cl bottle, labeled Southern Charred, pours a murky amber with some cloudy, white head. Nose has booze, brown sugar, some cinnamon, dried fruit, caramel, vanilla. Flavor has lots of vanilla, booze, caramel, some pine sap, a little birch. Boozy finish, full bodied.
