   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
tom10101 (2965) - 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. It’s impressive how different the aroma and the taste are, but it’s probably because of an infection. That’s 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.

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 (3304) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle. There it is, 2000 ratings. Never thought I’d 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 (1923) - 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.

jcartamdg (2029) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Pours a dark and slightly hazy brown with no head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla and oak, lots of booze. Taste is boozy bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits and oak. A bit too boozy for my liking but its expected for what it is.

alexsdad06 (5608) - Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Draft at 7th Anny (also bottled). Pours a slightly hazy dark brown color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, bourbon, vanilla, wood, cherry, candi sugar and nice dark fruits favoring plums and raisins. Smooth and tasty.

jandd1983 (2630) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 5, 2013
It poured a hazy dark brown color with a brown head. The aroma was of sweet maltiness and some bourbon alcohol. It had a medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. The taste was of sweet bourbon with a nice sweet finish. A very complex brew, but nicely done.

Bottle generously shared by burg326. Pours a mostly clear copper amber with a white head. Nose is some nice candy sugar, with toffee, bourbon, some plums, vanilla, and some wood. Flavor is similar with candy sugar, bourbon, vanilla, wood, plums, and some mild sweet fruit. Medium in body and nice overall.
