Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bomber. Pours a mostly clear amber brown with a frothy fizzy head. Aroma is tons of caramel sweetness, earthy, hair, leather, oak, bourbon barrel, and some metallic hint with light herbal notes. Flavor is bourbon, oak, candy sugar sweetness, honey, toffee, toast, light burnt malts, ashy oak and old wood, and some astringency in the end with a light alcohol burn which comes from a thinning body in the end.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Reviewed from notes. Poured into a tulip. Appearance is a nice mahogany color with a white head and a tad bit of lacing. The nose is straight bourbon. A bit of light caramel and fruit in the background. The booze goes with the bourbon. Taste is predominantly bourbon again, but done quite well. Really nice feel with booze and bourbon plus a slight sweetness underneath. Much better than the original, though not quite as interesting as the cabernet version.

AirForceHops (4989) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 27, 2014
22 oz. bottle, 2012 vintage purchased at Georgios in Billerica, MA. Aroma is spot on for the style, prunes, raisin and sweet caramel, toffee.

Flavor is nice. Sweet without any booze, raisins, caramel dipped dates, sweet English malts, tones of yeast. The alcohol is not found at this point, the mouthfeel is lightly oily with a super sweet dried fruit finish. ABV is super smooth at this point, no oxidation found. Love how barely wines tastes at this point in the evolution. Solid sipper.

On cask at rustico Arlington. Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin off white head. Bourbon and vanilla nose. Sweet and boozy with luscious dark cherry, raisin and toffee notes. Warming alcohol finish. A winner for a cold winter day.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, chocolate, caramel, slight dark ripe fruit, and a hint of oak. Poured deep amber/brown in color with a small, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Very hazy. Barely sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, slight Bourbon, slight vanilla, light oak, slight caramel, slight chocolate, and a hint of alcohol. Medium body. Slick, slightly viscous texture turns lightly dry. Soft to average carbonation. Malt, caramel, slight wood and light vanilla finish is dry. 10%ABV well hidden throughout.
