24th January 2013
THE Others tasting. 2009 Bottle. Another much wanted beer landed by Bruce - cheers mate! Hazy deep amber - brown beer. Massive pale cream - tan head. Palate is light, crispy and semi dry. Bitterish dry wood and oxidised malt and mild cheese. Aniseed and alcohol spice. Finishes dry and bitter. Interesting but probably a bit past it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper in color with a small off-white head. Huge booze/bourbon aroma on this. Lots of dark fruit, wood, vanilla, and sugar aromas as well. But mostly booze. Things are a touch more mellow on the palate, but still fairly heavy on the bourbon. Lots of vanilla, dark fruit, nuts, and brown sugar and caramel. Really an intense aroma and flavor to this, hopefully it mellows out a bit.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
’500 ml c&c bottle (as Southern Charred at 12.6%) from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark amber/brown with a creamy beige head. Aroma is primarily bourbon. Med + body. Flavor is bourbon, oak, vanilla - lots of those - and some nice roasty malt. This stuff is not bitter, but it’s not excessively sweet. Finishes mainline bourbon, and trying to be dry. The alcohol is not a problem. Merely detectable.
