JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle shared by a friend. Pours black with a medium tan head. Nose of malt, raisin, bourbon, chocolate and plum. Malty flavor giving way to creamy chocolate and raisin before a slightly boozy finish that tastes more like brandy than bourbon.

_angst_ (4500) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2016
Bottle courtesy of HackoBock. Pours viscous dark blackish brown with a fairly small dark mocha head that leaves some spotty trac e on the glass while dissiapting. Smell is malty with roasted malts, dark bread, caramel, charred wood, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, moist soil, liquorice fudge, soot and hints of bourbon alcohol and green chili. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, tiny salty and malty. Mouthfeel is slightly viscous, round, tiny roasted astringent, very tiny boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with bready roasty malts, dark chocolate, bourbon and hints of plums in brandy. Tasty and very complex. Very balanced between the base beer and barrel. A treat only bugged by the light green chili in the nose.

Stoned99 (1237) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle 12.09.15 drank to "celebrate" my wedding anniversary celebrated alone... Aroma: great nose of bourbon, chocolate, oaky, vanilla, a tad of paraffin. My kind of aroma. App: really dark brown with burgundy tint, small spearing brown head, little lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, creamy, velvety, medium high sweetness, a bit of anise, dry sweet and subtle bitter finish. Overall: good stuff. Think it’s a tad too boozy and way too sweet for me. Still enjoyed every sip of it but at this price point, I’d rather buy 3 original Everett over this one. Anyway, for how I’m feeling tonight, this really does the job done.

yourilevesque (1361) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2016
Partagée en compagnie des trois amigos. Liquide noir et huileux dont les premiers millilitres dans les verres ne formèrent aucune mousse alors que le fond de la bouteille fut pour sa part bien mousseux et dense. Forte variation tant au niveau présentation, qu’olfactif que gustatif entre les différents niveaux de liquide dans cette même bouteille. Dans l’ensemble le liquide me paraît encore trop jeune. Beaucoup de bourbon et de mélasse et peu de nuances. Un liquide délicat comme Everett, à 8% d’alcool qui plus est, souffre à mon avis d’un vieillissement si prolongé. En effet, ce dernier s’en est trouvé durement aminci et ses splendides nuances chocolatées, réduites à peu. Le bourbon a tout dérobé sur son passage et c’est bien triste. Une acidité de baies rouges due au bois et à l’alcool. Une bière qui demeure un très bon porter barriqué, mais qui ne fait absolument pas le poids devant la merveilleuse Everett originale.

Bottle. Black viscous our with dense mocha head. Aroma is chocolate, ash, vanilla, and oak. Taste is full on chocolate fudge, vanilla, oak, just a ton of barrel in this. Very rich, can’t really taste any of the regular beer in this but man, it’s very decadent.
