Brought back to Belgium from Green Bay, WI. Had a few Hinterland beers at Abbey bar in De Pere, but this is the best one Iíve tried. Probably the darkest IPA or IIPA Iíve tried short of a black IPA - it pours a dark ruby, almost brown. Great hop flavor and aroma. You can feel the heat, but itís appropriate for the strength - I think the time in the barrels helped mellow it. Like this a lot.

Poured this a bit on the cold side. Modest head, some lace. Clear dark amber color. Hops, Caramel, hint of skunk. Plus oak and bourbon come out in the flavor. More bitter than sweet in the palate. Decent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nose is big bourbon with spice and vanilla. Dark tanned leather color. Great barrel flavor without being overpowering. Scotch alw taste.

Weezel (195) - Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Beautiful dark amber pour with minimal head. Aromas of tropical hops, bourbon and alcohol. Taste is moderate hops, with some coconut. The bourbon barrel is light, but it is there. Slight alcohol burn on the finish, but this is pretty good stuff. I like the balance, as it doesít go overboard in any one direction.

Draft in snifter - nose is woody. Sip adds all kinds of flavor wow! Ok: bourbon, citrus, caramel, and something I just canít put my finger on. Bitter for sure with a strange sweetness. Sticky and not like any DIPA Iíve ever had.

Draft at Dutchís. Pours a deep reddish amber copper color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, bourbon, vanilla, oxidized hops, wood, dark fruits, this is much more like a barley wine after 20 months in a barrel, but tasty. Some earthy bitterness to the finish. This is better than most of their other beers Iíve had.

On tap at Dutchís. Mostly clear dark red color, kind of brown from a distance. Thin khaki head. Leaves a few dots of lace. Bigger body. Lighter, reasonably smooth, kind of crisp carbonation. Lightly drying finish. Good bigger toasty malt, some dark fruit, oak, vanilla, light spiciness. Bigger earthy hop aroma, with a satisfying moderate to bigger bitterness. Lighter sweet taste. Satisfying level of alcohol warmth. A pretty well-rounded, satisfyingly malty and complex barrel aged DIPA. Better than expected! One of the better barrel-aged DIPAs Iíve had, probably. The barrel aromas here work much better than in more pale examples.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Sample at Daily Growler. The beer is a hazy dark amber/copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon and caramel. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, oaky bourbon and fruit. The finish is oaky with a caramel and bourbon aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

akoeninger (430) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Hazy dark amber color. This brew smells of bourbon, malt, and almonds or vanilla. It tastes like floral, pine, bourbon, dank earth. Very well balanced with a slightly warming booze finish. This was a pleasantly surprising beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle, pours a clear dark amber almost copper with an off white head, the aroma was pretty malty a little bit of dark fruit mixed in with the hops, some bourbon shows through but is pretty subtle, I get that this is an imperial ipa, but this is so malty and caramel forward with a kick of bourbon I would of rather had them called an American strong ale or something, the heat builds in the finish, itís just a straight malt bomb with some sweet vanilla and a touch of bourbon in the finish, ugh.
