hopscotch (9037) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Mostly-clear dark brown ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The bouquet is an intermingling of bourbon, caramel, chocolate, and both medium and deeply-roasted malts interwoven and then flanked with whispers of dried plum and vanilla. Full-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is a sweet swirl of caramel, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, and oak accompanied by more subdued notes of dark chocolate, bourbon and dried plum. Chewy, caramel finish. There are complexities of imperial stouts, barleywines and bourbon barrels at play here, and they play very nicely together. This world class beer was generously shared by newcigarz!

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2013
I liked this one, thanks for sharing OmegaX. The pour was thick and black with little signs of carbonation. I smelled mainly coconut and molasses with some raisins, toffee and chocolate in the mix. The taste was full of molasses and more raisins with a silky chocolate finish. Undertones of cherries, toffee and cocoa were more present as it warmed up.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Opaque dark brown beer, big tan head. Softish palate, a little dry. Fine carbonation. Not getting a huge amount of difference from the regular Bart! Perhaps a little more spicy. So very nice again!

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.

Scopey (6651) - 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!
