Many thanks to eaglefan538 for this delicious beer. WOW, this beer is awesome. Pours a deep caramelly brown color. Very small white head of small bubbles. Smells of vanilla, oak, alcohol and super sweet malts. The taste is a great blend of the oak and vanilla flavors along with the the super sweet maltiness. A great brew because the characteristics from the barrel don’t overwhelm the beer itself. Palate is thick and full, excellent carbonation and just a little alcohol burn on the finish. Great beer.

Bottle thanks to eaglefan538: Pours a hazy dark copper mohagany with a thin ring of light tan head. Smoky salty rich oak and sweet dark caramel malty nose has nice dark fruity complexity. Body starts rich and dark caramely malty sweet with a nice complex balance of fresh oak and brown sugar. A very nicely aged and complex brew.

Madness w/ the Moose. Caramel color. Cloudy. Malty aroma with hints of bourbon. Powerful aroma. Taste is complex with malts, caramel, alcohol, and bourbon. A bit too powerful.

Jeez train wreck Poured a dark brown some redness to it with no head or lacing. Aroma was malty dark fruits and bourbon. Flavor once again with the bourbon aged beers this one the bourbon won the flavor some caramel in there and some oak but bourbon was the flavor that was over the top bad one here.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Bottle from P-ville. Wow, this one has a pretty high RSD. The pour is ruddy muddy deep brownish with ruby highlights and a 1-finger off-white head. The nose is great; cherry, berry, funky cobwebby yeast, candi sugar, dark malt, merlot, spice, oaky cognac....smells a lot like Rocheforte 10. The palate is rich, complex, with a lvely fruity spicy flavor, giving flavor hints of malt, funky yeast, cherry, oaky bourbon, merlot, and fig, all melding together very well. This one is outstanding.

eaglefan538 (2843) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Bottle from the Wilmington brewpub. The pour was brown with ruby highlights, weak to no head or lacing. The aroma was sweet bourbon and dark fruits and malts. The flavor was unfortunately over the top bourbon, oak chips, sweet caramel, an overly bourbonized variant of their base beer which I wasn’t a huge fan of in the first place. Sticky mouthfeel.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Had this at BCTC. Muddy brown color with small head. Dark fruit, vanilla, and wood notes come through in the aroma. The taste was the same with a smooth rich, sweet taste. Very good beer.

kapusta (87) - Dover, Delaware, USA - AUG 11, 2007
This is so incredibly good, that your mouth waters when you smell it. Very rich and sweet. Ripe fruits, oakynotes, nice waft of alcohol and just a touch of vanilla at the end. This is a masterpiece that rivals some of Europe’s best quads. Usually only available in late winter/early spring, unless they break out the reserves barrels.
