Bomber to snifter (shared by Tmoney99). Looks good; a cloudy dark brown with thin beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good; dark fruit, vanilla, oak, and a touch of mildly smooth bourbon. Tastes Ike it smells, but tart. Merge fruit too. Average on the palate. Good beer, but it smells better than it tastes and the mouthfeel is odd for the style. It could be mildly infected, but its enjoyable anyway.

bytemesis (4245) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle with thanks to Jmikolitch! Pours clear ruby chestnut, small brown head, some lacing. Aroma is very malty, sugary, boubon. Flavor is sweet, oaky, bourbon, cotton candy, molasses, toffee, some windex, yeast. Fairly astringent, little bitterness. Medium body. This is a very woody beer. Woody. Woody. The more I drink the more I detect a bit of tartness, I wonder if there is a bit of infection here? Woody. Oh, and woody.

tom10101 (3672) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle (22 oz). From pandableh, thanks Dan! Dark amber with a small beige ring of foam and not much lacing. Aroma is comparable to other good bourbon barrel quad with bourbon, caramel, dark fruits, raisins and brown sugar. Taste is a tad problematic with a touch of acidity (maybe the beginning of an infection), way fruitier than aroma and a touch of bourbon. Light body. Low carbonation. Somewhat oily. Its impressive how different the aroma and the taste are, but its probably because of an infection. Thats bad because the aroma was enticing.

Pours a dark red with a low beige head that leaves light lacing. Aroma is nice and features dark fruits, caramel, brown sugar and bourbon. Taste is nice too with raisins, caramel and lightly tart notes. Carbonation was low, texture a bit oily. I enjoyed it.

Minderbinder (2402) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle 22oz. Pours very deep red with low beige head. Aroma is of alcohol, caramel, butterscotch, alcohol, plums, strawberries, raisins. Taste is of alcohol, malt, berries, dark fruits, very slight acidity, sugar. Palate: Medium-full body. Overall: Not cloying. Very fruity. Pretty good. Nice complexity.

JulienHuxley (4024) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle. There it is, 2000 ratings. Never thought Id make it. Deep red pour, small lacing, white head. Aroma of raisins, red licorice, strawberries, dark cherries, quite fruity, light brown sugar notes. Taste is fruity, boozy, unfortunately quite tart. Palate is thin, like excessively wood-aged beers get, thin and tart. Unfortunate.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle shared by Dave. Aroma is sour grape, figs, browned apple, and chocolate. Pours dark red with slight wispy film. Taste is off. Sour apple, rotten citrus, chocolate, and toffee. The barrel notes are there but the rest of the beer appears to have been infected.
