3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 it’s enjoyable anyway.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
