Bottle opened up at the Ottawa 2015 Holiday gathering via CANBIF, I think this year so fiery1 but have be wrong. Dark pour with a thin chocolate head covering. Lovely aroma of dark chocolate, lightly roasted malt, oak, vanilla, warming booze, molasses; low carbonation and full bodied, slightly sweet and a nice booziness, a bit of fruit on the finish, very good.

jsquire (4106) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2015
Dark beer with a short foamy brown head. Nice warming nose of bourbon and dried fruit. This is a great example of using a barrel to enhance a beer. Buttery bourbon alcohol, rich vanilla, molasses sweetness and some dark toast. Very smooth and easy to drink.

JK (5631) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Thanks to Brian for sharing this one. Initial aroma of alcohol, which is also on the palate. Heavily roasted grain, and bourbon dominates any other flavors that might have been there.
