DalzAle (2010) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2010
2009 Bottle. Very dark amber colored pour, no carbonation and an aroma of heavy bourbon/whiskey and rich malts. Flavor started slightly malty, then a little bourbon, slick vanilla and a sweet warming caramel corn aftertaste. Solid, unique and worth searching out. Very glad I got to try it.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2010
[Bottle] generously shared by Dalzale. Thanks! Pours a clear copper with a scant head. Aroma is cherry, vanilla, coconut, caramel, toffee, and some alcohol. Flavor is very smoky, a bit astringent, quite a bit of alcohol, a touch of popcorn, quite a bit of hop bitterness. This beer is super sharp, bordering on stinging.

MeadMe (1456) - Riverview, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2010
A: Pours a dark orangish brown hue with a small head. No retention but it does have some legs. S: Huge aromas here. Tons of coconut, caramel, brown sugar. The barrel stands out in a big way as well with fresh oak, vanilla, and booze. T: Crazy good brew. Sweet caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. Coconut macaroons, hints of dark fruit and lots of oak, vanilla, and light booze. M: Medium in body, perfect carbonation, smooth, with a nice boozy finish. D: Out of this world.

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2010
Dark brown with a lovely reddish glow, only a small ring is left on top, looks heavy and inviting. Aroma is simply mindblowing, just oh so nutty and toffe loaded with slick lovely creamy sweet buttery vanilla, caramell and cookie dough notes. Some lovely fruity black currants, dark berrys, integrated bourbon and some raisins. Flavor is about the same but with "less" unfortunately, still lovely but with a fairly noticable alcohol presence, especially in the finish which is slightly dry with lingering bourbon notes. Mouthfeel is smooth, quite sticky and fat.
