illidurit (2130) - Petaluma, California, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Bomber shared at Woodshop 5.0. Dark but clear brown color with a thin ecru head. Sweet bourbon notes without the booziness, coconut, light smoke. Chocolate, roast, smoke, and peat in the flavor, along with an inexplicable winey note that’s pretty mild but there. Dark fruits and caramel make minor appearances. Thick, slightly acidic, very good.

Bottle thanks to BMan1113VR. Pours a dark mahogany color with no head. Nose is buttered pecan, ash, chocolate cherry cordials, and toasted oak. Taste is sort of tar and vinegar light. At first I thought I didn’t rinse out my glass but I guess thats how it is.

thirdeye11 (5536) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2010
( 22oz bottle #9/72, bottles 11/16/09 thanks to BMan1113VR) Pours clear brown with a ring of oily bubbles. Nose of bourbon, cedar wood, light cherries, peat, and caramel. Taste of chocolate, bourbon, rum raisins. Nice flavorful finish that is warming, but really the alcohol is extremely well hidden. Great beer.
