2013. Pours a deep amber with a small beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of coconut, bourbon, oak, vanilla and caramel. Taste is of coconut, chocolate and bourbon, really nice. Incredibly oaky. It is hot but I like it like that. Body is full, carbonation kind of low and mouthfeel velvety. Alcohol dries the mouth quite hard. World class it is for sure!

Dark brown with an amber hue through the light. Big boozy aims, with oak, vanilla, dark red fruits. Fantastic shipping beer. Bourbon heat, oak, vanilla, chocolate, and booze. Just world class stuff.

this is deep dark bourbony goodness at close to perfection. if the bourbon cools off a bit, this has potential to be one of the best barreled beers out there. i have it juuust shy of FW13 (4.7) because as of now it lacks the immense complexity of that beer, but it is deeeelicious. couldn’t keep my nose out of the glass...dark fruit esters, loads of Heaven Hill bourbon. wine like and sweet maltiness. AWESOME brew."

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color of this beer is a deep, clear garnett that is almost too dark to see through, and there’s a small light tan head that fades quickly. The aroma blends raisins, bourbon, oak, cherries, booze, and caramel malts, and the taste is mildly sour, mildly sweet, slightly umami, and a touch bitter due to the dark fruit, boozy, and toffee flavors. The aftertaste is boozy and astringent, and the palate fuses an oily texture, nearly flat carbonation despite the bite created on the tongue, and a medium-full body.

Pours ruby brown with aroma of dark fruit, vanilla, chocolate, and hint of booze. Dark fruit including cherry and fig flavor with vanilla, chocolate, and a touch of bourbon. Wonderful beer.

2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazed ruby brown with a big whitish head that goes away fast
One of the worst smelling beers I’ve encountered in a while. Smells of nail polish remover old meat and farts. Strangely tastes not too fucking shabby. Vanilla and a savory wood note accent the Chocolate covered cherry note well. Just can’t get past that smell.

Tap at CBC 2014. Brownish-red in the glass. Alcoholic-malty aroma. Starts intense alcoholic-malty, sharp, burning. Fruity warming finish. A bit too alcoholic, but still okay.

On draft at High Street. Nice full aromas and tastes of Earth, woog, vanilla, dark fruit, chocolate and coconut. The blend was perfect and really poped once it warmed.

2013 bottle split with my wife during some of the last rounds of fridge clearing. Pours red ruby with a dark tint. Ample cream hued foam head. nose of bourbon, vanilla, and booze. taste follows this theme with additional dark fruits, toffee, caramel. Body is big, booze burns the throat, warming. I enjoyed this and made by back feel better since it numbed it.
