Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Opaque, sienna-brown color with a dark beige, creamy head that doesn’t last for very long. Aroma is HUGE. Incredible powerful. Heavily boozy oak, vanilla, bourbon & toffee coated dark prunes, raisins, sticky caramel, toasted notes underneath, tons of residual sweetness clashing with robust booze & warmth. Wow. Super creamy & thick on the palate. Bourbon infused dark fruits out of the gate; dates, figs, currant. Toasted brown sugar sweetness, caramel, toffee candy, vanilla, & even light notes of burnt marshmallow. Lots of wood, lots of oak, & lots of bourbon from start to finish. A flavor that is truly intense & lasts for days, finishing with vanilla, wood, prunes, bourbon, & buttery toffee. Have had this aged for one, two, three, & four years. Great every time.

Draught at CBC 2014. Murky copper liquid with a medium off-white head. Aroma of bourbon, raw sugar, caramel, wood and toffee. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with notes of bourbon and raw sugar. Full bodied with low carbonation. Wow. Everything I hoped it would be. Great bourbon aroma and lots of toffee notes.

dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle, 2011 vintage, third beer of Christmas Day. Pours a nearly opaque chestnut with no head. Aroma is deep complex malts, roasted plum, and sweet bourbon – I’m reminded a bit of King Henry, or at least my memory of it – with molasses, sherry, tart cherry, light oak, alcohol vapors, and faint soy. Taste is sweet plum, caramel, and cola fading into a boozy, bourbony middle and finishing with roast, bitter chocolate, scorched caramel, earth, raisins, and oak. Still hot even after a few years and somewhat thin mouthfeel. Good but not sure I’m on board with the hype; this may be over the hill.

Ferris (9823) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle - Vintage 2013 - Butterscotch, vanilla, bourbon, and raisin. Deep cloudy brown with a small off white head. Bourbon, anise, raisin, plum and a bit of roast with barrel notes throughout. Nice, but I actually like the regular better.

Abio (1823) - Waasland, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2014
Very dark brown in the glass. Small head, very fruity and boozy. One to drink again if i can get my hands on it.

Aroma is sweet, butterscotch, toffee, oak barrel. Appearance is apple cider brown, light tan head. Taste is much the same as the aroma, super complex, the barrel adds a lot of booze qualities and a new character. Mouthfeel is perfect, creamy, thick, lovely. Overall, I love this beer, but prefer the original 4D to the barrel-aged counterpart.

"Wish list cross off. Very sweet on the aroma and flavor, but the body is so smooth as to be bordering on ridiculous. I didn’t get a vintage, but do remember this one coming in at a whopping 13.5%, with very little heat. Flavor and aroma of vanilla, caramel, toffee, fruit, brown sugar & bourbon. Little to no hop presence. Maybe some slightly roasted malts in there as well. A beautiful sipper. Deserving of the 100/100 on RB."

kappldav123 (5721) - GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts fiery-malty, alcoholic, woody, earthy. Some spicy hints. Finish still strong and fiery. Could be more balanced.
