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.

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.

Bomber to snifter (shared with the group; thanks tomfoolery). Looks good; cola with thin beige lacing and soft carbonation. Smells good too; sweet and boozy. Tastes Like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Great beer!

Bottle @ Bruceís. The pourís brown with a small head. The nose is raisin and chocolate. Plums. The taste is similarly sweet. Cocoa, berry, some roasted nuts. Raisin cookies. Full body, thick, soft carbonation. Quite solid.

TheAlum (6944) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle shared at Danís 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.

Borresteijn (6422) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2013
66cl Bottle at WWT II. Black, thin beige head. Aroma of loads of oak, bourbon, hint of raisins, roasted malts, sweet chocolate. Flavour is sweet oak, vanilla, coffee and cream, sweet chocolate, sweet and bitter roast finish with loads of oak. Full-bodied. Soft carbonation. Great stuff.

Ernesto987 (5578) - Arizona, USA - APR 13, 2015
bottle thanks for Dak, thanks man! Tons and tons of molasses, honey, and dark sugar syrup. Tasted like a jar of barrel aged molasses! I was very tempted to unICE it with my water glass. Lots of flavors in there but i canít get past the rampant sweetness. Itís hurting my teeth.

JohnnyJ (5405) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle thanks to timfoolery. Dark off-brown pour, with a thin light tan head. Sweet caramel, toffee, vanilla, oak, chocolate, plum, and light bourbon. Very smooth, the barrel aging is well done, and little to no booziness. Actually easy drinking for what it is. Good.

Clear black colour, red hue. No head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, caramel, sweet chocolate, bourbon and red fruits. Sweet flavour, malts, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Full body. Finish lots of vanilla and light chocolate.
Nice brew!
(From 66cL bottle @ WW II tasting, Amsterdam. Bottle 147/2012. Thanks for sharing, MrHangover!!)
