brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
The beer is amber in color with a white head. A fair amount of booze on the nose with a bit of a nail polish remover note. Somewhat perfumey, too. There is a lot of sweet caramel malt, some toast, and a bit of whiskey. A bit better on the palate as there is some fruit character, a nice maltiness, and whiskey flavor. Mild oak and vanilla notes, but still fairly hot and alcoholic.

LoFi (1517) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle, thanks to MrHangover! Hazy orange amber with a small porous head that dissolves into a ring. Aroma: sweet maltiness, boozy, whiskey, toffee, fruit, vinous. Taste: toffee, sweet whiskey (haven’t had Jack D in a good 10 years or so, but it was never a favourite), fruity, red berries, light earthy. The finish is light tart and wood. Medium-bodied. A bit too boozy, plus the whiskey flavours (which aren’t even from a very good whiskey) take over a bit. Otherwise it’s pretty good.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 28, 2012
from Erzbierschof - cloudy dirty brown colour with no foam; some woody tones with notes of caramel and hints of grass and lemon; thick and full-bodied, some sweetness and a solid bitterness; low carbonation; long lasting bitterness with some residual sugars and long woody and caramelish, grassy tones

Plovmand (6175) - Helsinge, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle at home. Trade via Borresteijn. It pours hazy amber with a creamy off white head. The aroma is dark fruity with notes of bourbon, vanilla, malt and bisquits. The flavour is heavy malty with lots og bourbon notes. Sweet caramel and ripe fruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oh6gdx (20003) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2012
Cask@GBBF2012. Deep amber colour with no head. Aroma is sweetr malts, some sweet hops along with some whisky sweetness as well. Also mild vanilla. Flavour is the same in a very nice balance, although a bit more alcohol can be found in the flavour.

Idiosynkrasie (3228) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2012
330ml bottle. Cloudy amber colour with no head - just a thin layer bubbles up and lasts enduring. Aroma is initially heavy caramel malty, sweet, has notes of candied fruit, apple, syrup, then the vanilla-pregnant bourbon notes find their way through. Taste is slightly sweet and tart, caramel malty, well hidden alcohol. The finish is ruled by the whiskey notes with a salient leather touch. Very well balanced, concerning the sweet and tart notes as well as the not overdone Jack Daniels component. Doesn’t nevertheless meet my preferences.

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2012
33cl bottle from Emelisse Biershop, shared with Antoine @ HoppyLoft. Orangée, col blanc fin, une fois la demi bouteille, le tout devient trouble avec une levure épaisse au fond. Arôme est de Jack Daniels et pas grand chose d’autres. Qcq notes de malt et caramel. Le tout reste très effectif. Palais présente un pétillant léger avec un Jack Daniels qui couvre quasi toute l’expérience. Malgré les 10%, la bière parait nettement plus, brève note d’amertume citronnée qui est vite emportée par le JDà noter et ce léger profile de pomme caramélisé et de JD. Je ne sais pas comment ce barley peut évoluer, le JD est tellement présent que au fil du temps il risque de dominer toute la bière.

NikkTwist (1383) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy medium dark amber with a slim white head that left a bit of lace. Sweet and bitter with some red fruits. Blended well but hoped for more. Palate is good but feels unfinished.

luttonm (2069) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUN 14, 2012
Draft at In De Wildeman in Amsterdam. Crisp, hazy copper. Alc-heavy head. Rich boozy nose, oak and whiskey. Cinnamon, sugar. Rosy copper, tart body. Big warming alc. Leather, sour-hopping, coating sweet. Sour, skunky hopness, light carbonation. I don’t think Jack is the best barrel to age in, given some examples I’ve seen. Bit much in all directions but interesting and tasty.

PhillyCraft (2845) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Sample glass with Scott and James. Poured dark amber, small head and lacing on my glass. Aromas and taste of whiskey, vanilla, mollases syrup, cherry, plums, and some candy sugar.
