bhensonb (10929) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 27, 2011
750 c&c from michael-pollack who has my eternal gratitude. De-corked with a loud pop. Pours black with a 4+ finger creamy dark tan head. All kinds of aromas. Toffee, coffee, bourbon/vanilla, chocolate. Full bodied. Flavor is all of the foregoing, but the chocolate is near dark baking chocolate, and the bourbon is playing against that. Amazing that the chocolate competes so well with the bourbon. Brilliant ale.

Tmoney99 (10566) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Bottle shared by brew3crew. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon, woody and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a rich smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet chocolate cream flavor with a medium to heavy sweet smooth finish of moderate to long duration. Standout brew.

hopscotch (9082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours clear and brown with mahogany highlights and a tiny, swirling, off white head. The nose, when picked apart, is comprised of fudge, caramel and pecan praline accentuated by subtle notes of butter, lightly toasted coconut and maple syrup. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and low-key carbonation. The flavor is a well-balanced, but decadent blend of malty caramel, fudge and light toasted oak and coconut. A touch boozy. Finishes mildly sweet and lightly acidic. Thanks to landhoney for sharing this world class beer with the south Florida crew!

daknole (9049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Bottle. Super dark brown pour, chocolate colored head. Aroma is just loaded with chocolate, vanilla, brownies and bourbon. Flavor of bourbon soaked brownies, vanilla, dark brown sugar, pretty damn delicious!

Theydon_Bois (8276) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle at home, labelled as ’bourbon barrel’ Insidious, thanks to James (Jtclockwork) for the trade, 30/05/13. Pours mid black with a big tan head that soon dissipates to a pond atop the glass with edgeing for company. Nose is roast malt laced with bourbon, dark toffee, light roast, molasses, touch of bitter chocolate. Taste comprises dark toffee fudge, oak, sugars, chocolate, bourbon notes but well tempered in this respect, dark fruits, molasses. Full bodied, fine carbonation, sugars and light booze in the finish. An eminently drinkable BA impy. Smooth drinking and the alcohol is well integrated.
