Bottle big thanks to John, thanks buddy! Pour is dark brown with very little head. Almost port- like. aroma is huge brown sugar, vanilla, light brandy, light squash, and very faint alcohol. Flavor is deep toffe malt, faint vanilla, notable Brady notes, and a huge long burnt brown sugar finish with a pat of butter on top. Hearty and delicious.

boFNjackson (4140) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle at a recent tasting... Poured deep, dense brownish with a tan head. This was intense and potent. Loads of bourbon, oak, and booze here. Dark malt sweetness reminiscent of toffee, caramel, and butterscotch. Warming whiskey heat, dark fruits. Thick, full bodied and coated the palate nicely.

Sarlacc83 (766) - Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2012
2010 courtesy of Scott. Appearance is extremely dark brown, good legs, minimal amount of lacing. Not an attractive beer. Nose is intense with the barrel (vanilla, caramel, toffee, brown sugar) with some dark fruits such as prunes. Taste is heavy on the barrel as well, as one would expect. Really heavy on the caramel and honey in a good way. The sweetness and the bitterness work well together. However, this is still pretty hot even after nearly 2 years, and it detracts from the experience. Palate is smooth and velvety. There’s enough carbonation in the body to keep this one lively. Overall: Quite enjoyable, but there’s a few factors missing which keep this one from turning sublime. Reminds me a lot of Hair of the Dog, but it’s missing a few components which would push it into the same realm.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle received in a trade. Sampled along the regular version with 2mikes. Dark red-brown with a tiny head that dissipated immediately. Nose is rich sweet malt, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, and booze. Taste is massive booze and rich sweet. Hot and sharp. Medicine and cherry and warming bourbon. Big and fuzzy and gorgeous.

hirigalzkar (2295) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours brown-grey. No head. Very sweet. Liquor, vanilla, sweet chocolate, alcohol and a small touch of wood. Incredible smooth. A bit too sweet and one dimensional, otherwise very good.

finol (2169) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours grayish brown without any head. Aroma of cola, petrol, bourbon and malt. Very sweet taste of licorice, milk chocolate and xmasy spices. Lots of taste without beeing to heavy. Bit HotD like.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours deep chestnut, topped with a small tan head. Really enticing aroma, with lots of wood, vanilla and dark fruit in the forefront, with molasses and raisin the back. Dark fruit hits the palate first, with the woody, boozy character building and taking over. Bourbon lingers on the palate. A little boozy, but otherwise its pretty solid.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Huge thanks to daknole for busting out another monster! Bottle pours deep brown with a tan head. Aroma shows notes of bourbon soaked chocolate toffee cake, vanilla, brown sugar, and roasted malt. Flavor delivers the same with additional notes of oak, delhi dates, dried dark fruit, and maple cookies. Overall body is moderate to full and finishes with a touch of warmth. This beer has a massive amount of depth while still managing to be balanced.
