Bottle via trade with Kevin - thanks! Murky brownish amber pour with minimal head. Nose is carmel, wood, and bourbon. Somewhat sweet taste, with a touch of booze. Chocolate coming out as it warms. Lower carbonation. Yummy beer.

2013 bottle. Pours copper with just a few loose bubbles on top; flat with no head. Smells good though with plenty of bourbon and wood to go with nice little nuances of plum, licorice, and toffee. Rich with a light burn in the back of the throat but very smooth going down. A gentle warmth throughout. The flavors mostly fall in line with the aroma: bourbon and barrel notes lead the way, with plenty of candied fruit (raisin, date, plum), sweet toffee, as well as vanilla and leather to give this some nice depth. It’s a good beer for sure, but oh man, this could have been epic with some carbonation. But I knew that going in.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2014
(Bottle) Pours orange/red/brown with no head. Firey but fat and fairly rond barrel profile in the aroma with caramelly/bready malt alongside tropical and dried fruits. Nice oxidation. The flavour is medium to heavily sweet, medium to heavily bitter and light acidic with fairly slim malt profile (for a BW), firey barrel profile and fruit. The mouthfeel is numbing with almost no carbonation. Medium bodied.

Ataraxia (389) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Slightly hazy, burnt orange-brown with off-white lacing. Aroma is a bit hot from the bourbon; there’s also brown sugar, figs, charred oak, leather, and a subtle amount of tobacco. Sugary but not overly sticky, viscous, full-bodied, and smooth with little carbonation. Finish is boozy and sweet.

Dfonorow (1600) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle share in 2013. Pour is hazy dark brown with no head. Aroma is brown sugar, dates, honey, vanilla, and oak. Flavor is very malty - vanilla, oak chips, honey, booze. A bit cloying and almost no carbonation, disappointing.

MrFecesious (1091) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
2012 bottle enjoyed at brewery. Pours a cloudy burnt orange with an airy white cap that settles to a thick roped edge. Aroma of bourbon, candi, oak, fruit, juice. Taste is sweet, tangy. Silky mouthfeel from a medium carbonated level. This beer is amazing.
