wedgie9 (2565) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Tasted on 12/26/11 from a bottle, big thanks to whoever brought this to the tasting. Pours almost black with a red tint, a thin tan head, that slowly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is brown sugar, molasses, dark chocolate, coconut, maple, vanilla bourbon, and just a touch of soy sauce oxidation. The flavor is dominated by the same brown sugar, molasses coconut, maple, vanilla bourbon, and a touch of dark chocolate with an added fruity component, and a touch of banana. The body is full and oily with just below average carbonation and a long bourbon, coconut, vanilla, and maple finish.

Rating #1678 - #CBC2015 Beer 63 - Day 4 - On tap at HOTD w/ Ferris. Pours an opaque dark reddish brown color, almost black. Very little white head that bubbles away quickly. Nice aroma of oak, vanilla, bourbon, alcohol, roasted malts, raisin. Smooth mouthfeel, taste of oak, vanilla, toffee, medium alcohol warmth on the palate, full bodied, lingering sweetness. Love the colour and depth that these Bourbon barrels have brought to this brew. Exquisite.

ciocanelu (838) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 1, 2016
Dark brown color with basically no head. Aroma is intense on dried fruits, mostly figs and plums, with a fortified wine character. Taste is also very fruit forward, sweet but not cloying, syrupy, sticky, woody, intense and complex. Body is heavy, almost flat, a bit boozy as well. Feels like a liquor. Complex taste and aroma but feels too boozy and flat to be up there with the best of the style.

Beaver (1589) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2016
12 oz bottle, 2014 version. Pours brown with no head or carbonation.

The aroma is baker’s chocolate, bourbon, black licorice, roast and some dark fruit with slightly harsh alcohol.

The flavor is sweet chocolate malts, dark fruit, roast and some strong bourbon alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with no carbonation.

Overall, very interesting with a ton going on. A little harsh on the alcohol for me. A nice decadent dessert beer,
