One of the best - if not THE BEST - beers I've ever tasted. Distraught that I probably will never get to have it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crazy. A lot on the nose, beautiful notes of citrus. Tastes like wine, smooth with a bite. Palate is a bit weak. Very unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Ashley's. The pour is a pretty clear gold. The head is a white sheet and laces amazingly. The aroma is hoppy, full of citrus and bourbon. The barrel brings a beautiful vanilla note into it. The flavor is bitter at first, and then the sweetness from the vanilla and bourbon takes over. There is a light nougat finish on it, and the mouth feel is just great. The finish is a little weak, but overall this is a great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at mash tun festival. Pour is honey colored with a small white head. Aroma is very hoppy (citrus, peaches, grapfruit) with notes of bourbon and wood. Flavor has a lot of the barrel aging present - oak, vanilla, toffee, cake, and then transitions into a hoppy bitter finish. Alcohol is masked well.

Tap at draught 55. Poured a thick golden pour with no head. Nose has oak, bourbon and orange. Oak is quite dominating. Leads to the taste of oak and orange/mandarin. Really thick sweet malts coming through backed by the orange bitterness. Pretty solid stuff a bit too sweet though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wowza. Can really taste and smell the bourbon. Drank at Boegemans, courtesy of B Kaser. Pours deep golden, white head. Fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Coconut. Prominent in the nose and flavor. Weird things happen, i guess, when you push the alcohol limit, and then age in Bourbon barrels. But I wouldnít have expected this. Attractive thin white head. Medium body with a a creamy mouthfeel.but even the finish leaves you with sweet coconut. Not to my liking, regrettably.

glennmastrange (2255) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel notes for the malt, heavy orange and a hint of perfume for the hops, faint dough for the yeast, with bourbon and date in the background. Head is small, bubbly, slightly off-white with fair lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy medium amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then the long finish is moderately bittersweet. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a lively carbonation and a finish thatís almost harshly alcoholic and a bit sticky. This DIPA has a lot of bold aromas and flavors, especially the bourbon-y parts.

Well, letís see what all the rage is about. Golden on apricot colored with a thin white sheet. Smells like sweet bourbon and bubble gum and diacetyl. Taste is malt, some nougat, vanilla, artificial caramel, alcohol, very, very sweet. Medium bodied with moderate carb and an off dry finish. Well, this is not what I expected. I have have barrel aged IPA and DIPAís, but this is shit. Sweet, alcoholic, sweet and not very much like the style at all. That being said, if somebody is looking for a desert beer, Iíd suggest this as it reminds me very much of a higher end Samiclaus.
