Bottle @ Ratman’s, courtesy of forgetfu. Thanks Bill! Pours a fairly cheat dark brown appearance with a very thin tan head. Mild whiskey, toffee, somewhat herbal, light veggie, chocolate aroma. Rich chocolate, coconut, german chocolate cake, vanilla, a touch fruity, caramel flavor. Flavor is very nice but the aroma leaves something to be desired.

Bottle shared at Jack’s Farewell Tasting, big thanks to Bruce, 06/08/13 Extremely dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head that clears edgeward. Nose is dark toffee, bourbon enfused wood, earthy, light roast, dark fruits. Taste comprises dark toffee, light chocolate strains, muscovado sugar, leather, light alcohol, bourbon oak. Full bodied, fine carbonation with a good bourbon finish. Nice stuff - well balanced.

Benzai (8145) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ WWT II thanks to MrHangover. Dark brown color, dark red glare coming through, no head. Aroma of malts, some bourbon, a hint of vanilla and chocolate. Taste malts, lightly vanilla, wood, bourbon influences, slightly alcohol. Very very nice beer. Full body, medium to full carbonation.

Ibrew2or3 (6857) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Woodshed 2.0. Bomber share courtesy of dschiller. It pours with a murky dark mahogany looking body supporting a thin light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up an initial pulse of sweet molasses and then chocolate brownie that moves into some booziness at the end of the draw. The taste delivers a smooth mix of booze, molasses, chocolate brownie and a pleasing toffee sensation. It gets more and more boozy into the finish. Tasty sipper.

Scopey (6726) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle at Jack’s farewell tasting, big thanks to Bruce! It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is roasty, earth, juicy, toast, vanilla, coconut, fudge and toffee. The taste is smooth, roasted malt, coffee, light toast, warming alcohol, fudge, earth, raisin and chocolate with a dry, roasty finish. Full body, fine carbonation and slick mouth-feel. Smooth, well-balanced and very drinkable. Good work!

22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine- thanks again, Beau! Bottle #146. First time I’ve had a FiftyFifty beer outside the Eclipse series. Pours a deep chestnut color with a beige ring for a head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, oak, dates, figs, and nice bourbon throughout. The flavor is the same, with toffee and chocolate, too. Like pralines. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Sweet malt and bourbon goodness. I enjoyed this.

DrSilverworm (6318) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2013
22oz bottle, thanks to b3shine. Bottle says #146. Also, my first non-Eclipse FiftyFifty beer. Clear dark brown color. Little bubbly khaki head. Lots of dots of lace. Lightly roasty nose, some alcohol warmth evident in the smell. Medium to bigger body. Very light carbonation. Smooth, easy to drink, no lingering viscosity, but not overly dry. 11% alcohol is very well-hidden, no burn or bite, and little to no warmth, even. Moderate bitter taste. Nice dark bitter chocolate, good roast, little coffee, hint of dark fruit. Awesome long bitter roasty aftertaste. Very good.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle shared at Dan’s Birthday Tasting (Lyons, IL). Pours a richer blackish pour, good haziness, with a nice brownish glow on the edges. A frothy tannish head is a decent size, sits around and laces ok. Aromas are gentle cocoa, toast and toffee. Some gentle spirit, oak, and vanilla. A bit sweeter and sticky. Initial is firmer, medium bodied, a touch heavier with cocoa, toffee, and toast. Decent spirit. A bit of a condensed sweeter element hangs around. Some oatmeal, black malts, some toffee and toast. Vanilla, gentle spirit. Middle is a bit fuzzy, warm and spirit driven. A bit warm, some gentle carmelization and toast, toffee, coffee roast into the backend. Some roast, toast, a bit harsher and dry, warmth as we finish. Nice beer, a bit warm. The Iced element thickens it up a bit. Nice.

22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor has roasted malt, dark chocolate, barrel notes, caramel, some earthy bitterness and some booze. The only negative is the medium light body. I would like to see this a bit more full bodied.
