Braudog (6218) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle, caged/corked. Pours the ruddy, dirty brown color you’d expect. The aroma is strictly whiskey. But onto the palate, this delivers a delicious blend of rich malt backdrop, a little California bitterness, and then the warming soul of whiskey barrels. Work of art, here. (#5445, 2/25/2014)

TURDFERGUSON (4039) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2014
500ml "Southern Charred" version. Pours caramel brown with a small off white/yellowish head. Nose is sweet upfront, some overripe fruits, lots of caramel, and toffee, sugar babies, light roast, but mainly sweet booze. Flavor is similar. Not a huge fan of regular DB, but I find this one a little more balanced than the OG. Purty good.

500 mL bottle... and I don’t give a shit about the naming protocol -- this bottle says ’Southern Charred’ and that’s a helluva lot more creative than what the RB heading (and re-direct) is going by. Alright back to the beer... this one pours a murky, caramel-coppery color, no real head to speak of (although it’s been under the stairs since October and it’s pretty cold here in Chicago, so it might need to warm up to form suds) , no lacing. Nose is big boozy barrels, raisins, dates, vanilla, hint of malt. Mouth is big and oily, smacks you right in the mouth with a bourbon fist and a whole lotta sticky sweetness. Dried fruit, caramel, buttery toffee, brown sugar, vanilla, candied orange peel, hops bitterness creeps up on the back end. Very tasty stuff, probably woulda gone well with a slice of custard pie, or even some eggnog bread pudding (if I had any left from Christmas). This one is very similar to the Backwoods Bastard from Founder’s and the BA Behemoth from 3F’s, both of which rank as my two favorite non-stout barrel-aged beers. Wish I had a few more bottles.

marcus (8801) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours reddish brown with a nice beige head and a sweet malt and alcohol aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with lots of bourbon well-aged and tasty.

Bottle. Muddy dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is oak and caramel. Taste is huge caramel and butterscotch. Nice vanilla and woody notes as well. Moderate alcohol burn. Sticky syrupy mouthfeel. Too sweet and I shouldn't like this as much as I do but man it's tasty.

500 ml. Southern Charred bottle. Pours a murky golden brown with a decent beige head. Aroma of bourbon, malt, caramel, and fruit. Taste is bourbon, malt, wood, caramel, fruit, and vanilla. Nice and warming.

pineypower (3005) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a kind of ugly, cloudy apple cider color with a small off white head. Aroma is very nice, light earthy cocoa, oak, bourbon, caramel, vanilla and a mild tell of the abv via a slightly dry boozy note. Taste is super complex and rich. Light chocolate notes, mild smoke, earth, vanilla, caramel, mild bitterness with a lingering only slightly boozy note. This was fantastic!

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle as Southern Charred shared by Jeff. Aroma is sweet caramel apple, dank citrus hop, and some dirty moss. Pours light brown with a small but foamy head. Taste is still surprisingly very hoppy. Notes of dirt, oak, vanilla, citrus, and apple core. Very intense but not boozy tasting. Nicely done BA IPA.
