Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 Poured into a tulip glass. Dark brown in the pour, almost black in the glass. Finger of tan head that held well and great lacing. Some good roasted malt smell, caramel and toffee. Tastes like milk cream, harsh malt with a tease of sweet, bitter follows, ends with a good burnt malt grip. The oak cask is the backbone of it all, bringing structure and balance. It has a warming effect but not in the usual whiskey cask aged beer style. Soft and creamy texture. Low carbonation, medium body, not as heavy as other cask aged beers. One of my favorite whiskey cask aged beers. It’s between a sipper and an easy drinker, which for a cask aged beer is impressive. Not hardly sweet at all, which is great.

Cybion (54) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours deep ruby with a tiny amount of tan head, which doesn’t stick around long. Aroma of roasted malts along with a big presence of oak, and some earth, caramel and a tiny bit of resin. As expected it smells a little of Irish whiskey or bourbon. Big hit of dark fruits, caramel and roasted malts in the taste, topped off with a little bit of bourbon, a citrus-y sour note, marzipan and brown sugar. Nicely bitter and extremely smooth and oily on the mouth, a delight for the palate. Essentially a more complex I&G original with a little more body and kick to it; great stuff.

Strangebrewer (835) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
bottle. Poured deep brown with a red hue, settling creamy beige head. Aroma of heavily roasted malt, chocolate and alcohol. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Rich flavour, burnt malt, oak and treacle notes. Ending a bit sour and very dry.

zach8270 (3376) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2014
(bottle - 330 ml) Dark ruby pour with a thin tan head. Roasted malt and coffee aroma with some vanilla and oak notes. Slightly sweet at the beginning of the flavor with a roasted malt backbone coming up right after. Bitter and roasted coffee mixed with some light vanilla and buttery flavors with a bitter and lingering finish.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from Ricoh Tossco. Reflective pitch with ruby edges and a small rumpled nicotine head flattening fast. Attractive aroma of bubblegum, mauby, liquorice, Bateman’s and peat. The aroma translates directly into the flavour which is slightly warming, bubblegum fruity and hints at Black Jacks with a scraping of burnt toast. Not serious joined up beer but after a dry spell I have to admit it tastes pretty sweet, if needlessly astringent and burnt to finish. Just give me a full on Bazooka chew/root beer tooth rot attack and be done with it. Kind of pleasant.

Bottle from Beer Swap Saturday. Thanks, Chris! Pours Coca-Cola amber with a beige head. Aroma is dark malts, a touch of smoke. Flavor is sort of like Guinness with some oak and a touch of Scotch. Pretty good, actually.
