hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 19, 2008
tasted with the phoenix crew. opened by sparky27. pours a clear copper color with no head. smells like freshly smoked maple cured bacon... cream, smoke, oaky/wood, tobacco, golden raisins and brown sugar. tastes really smokey... astringent and almost fake? flavors include oaky/barrel/vanilla, toffee, spice, alcohol, dark dried fruit (maybe figs and black raisins) and a surprisingly dry finish. it’s still way too sweet but at least this has some characteristics to make it worth the effort (versus the regular). medium body with a creamy texture and light mouth feel.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Sampled at Bockyhorsey’s Bocky Bash on 7-5-08. Not much diferent from the father other than the alcohol presence and smoky wood aroma was ood. Still sweet malted quad that left mild smoke and a sweet aftertaste. Just too sweet for my palate I quess.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Sampled at Bockyhorsey’s Bocky Bash on 7-5-08. Cloudy dark brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma of raisins, molasses, alcohol and wood. Lightly sweet flavor of dark ripe fruit, caramel malt, wood and alcohol. Much tastier and more complex than the non-oaked version. Nice.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Bottle courtesy of GMCC2181 and shared at the 7/5/08 Bocky Bash locals tasting as a small vertical with the non-oaked version. Pours a clear brown with minimal tan head. Nose is sour oak, tobacco, molasses and alchohol. Taste is burnt caramel, tobacco, wood notes and alcohol. Full, creamy mouth feel. I liked this one much better than the quadfather. Thanks G!

750 ml bottle. Pours a murky sandy brown with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, oak and brown sugar/molasses. Taste of bourbon, oak, vanilla with a hint of brown sugar. Excellent !!

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Brown color with a full forming, long lasting foam. Terrific aroma that showcases an array of barrel elements (bourbon, vanilla, coconut), along with some malt (caramel) and yeast character. Flavor is amazingly complex, with a well integrated barrel character and lots of flavors from the original beer as well. Weighty feel on the palate as well. Simply a damn good brew. I would collect it if it were a little more affordable.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Pours a nice brown color with a light head. Aroma is sweet with brown sugar, vanilla and wood, dark fruits....Flavor is a fine mix of woody/oaky/vanilla influenced raisin, brown sugar, molasses, and bready yeast. Well put together and balanced nicely. One of the better Iron Hill creations that I really enjoyed. Pricey - but worth it for at least one bottle.

BeerandBlues2 (10065) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2008
750 mL bottle received via trade with eaglefan538. First, damn! This monster pours dark brown with a small, fizzy, light brown head, mostly diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, cookie, nutty), light hops (flowers), heavy yeast (leather, earth) with notes of oak, vanilla, bourbon, dates, prunes, and port. Full bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a creamy finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness. What a well-crafted beer!

Sampled at Dickinsonbeer’s May gathering. Deep amber n color with a small lasting tan head. Aroma- molasses, some earthy yeast, dark fruits, and oak. Taste is sweet with molasses, dark fruits and candi sugar. A moderate amount of belgian yeast in the taste with some light phenols and banana esters. Full bodied.
