Ferris (3944) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle - Boozy bourbon and dark sugar sweetness. Muddy brown with a beige head. Dark caramel and chocolate and a bit of booze. Although the nose was a bit harsh, the taste was better balanced.

Bottle grand tasting RBESG14. Sweet funky aroma. Bourbon. Odd in mouth. Hot. Bit all over the place. Not a good beer. Sweet bourbon. No real beer taste.

Niall73 (1724) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle at rbesg. Pours a reddy brown. Boozy, dark fruit aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Spicy, woody, rummy... It's tasty enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at RBSG. From notes. Caramel and toffee with a good dose of roasty malt and bourbon soaked oak. A little vanilla in there too. Very good. I was not expecting it to taste like this at all.

Bottle at RBSG, thanks to DalzAle. Pour is dark brown, some caramel and dark fruits on the nose. Lots of brown sugar, toffee and malts with a bit of alcoholy bourbon. Really a cool beer, wish I could try this as my first beer of the night sometime.

DalzAle (1978) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle thanks to StFun! Dark brown pour, little bit of frothy carbonation and an aroma of peanut butter?! Flavor was good meld of brown sugar, a good malt base, toffee and a little bourbon on the finish.

Bacterial (1531) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pour at RBSG - thanks Greg! Bonus points for awesome label art and obscure rap music reference. Bitterness really dominated the taste, not really what I look for in a barrel aged barley wine.
