This poured a murky amber color with a small beige head. Aroma was a good bit of broubon, lots of caramel, and some burnt cake there too .. Flavor was very sweet,but not really cloying, almost watery actually, for the style, and lots of caramel nad toasted sweetness with some borubon heat. Just a bit disconjointed.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
2012-11-18. Murky dark brown body, headless. Big aroma, bourbon, light wood, alcohol and tangy rich malt character. Flavour is similar, lots of bourbon character, support sweet malt core, tangy fruity character lends itself to a fairly dry warming finish. Surprisingly bitter. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate is essentially still. Some carbonation would go a long way to make this lighter on the palate. Has nice highlights, but leaves the mouth tingly with alcohol and sits pretty heavily on the palate. Decent but lacks the nuance and sophistication to take it up a notch. Bottle, note on cap says 12/2011 via trade with flandersned

Tap @CBC2014
Dark copper-brown color, small beige head. Strong aroma of toffee and vanilla. Full-bodied. Lots of bourbon and vanilla. Alcohol, warming. Strong and a bit sticky. Quite sweet but nice dessert beer when you have it in small quantities.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Pours brown with a tan head. Smells of bourbon, booze, sugary. Tastes cloying with maple, cognac, fruit, some sigar and molasses dominating.

JohnC (3004) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - NOV 20, 2010
bottle 2009 opaque reddish brown pour with a minimal head big and boozy, lots of bourbon aroma and flavor, slight alcohol burn in the flavor. This is definitely a beer you drink very slowly; it was a bit hot for my liking

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2011
2010 bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Translucent dark copper body, no head. Nose of alcohol, circus peanuts, brown sugar, and band-aid phenols. Body dominated by brown sugar and caramel corn with huge buttery oak and warming alcohol. Round and rather dry despite the brown sugar notes; slick palate. Not as impressive as the Bourbon 4th Dementia.
