4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Not much head produced, some beige bubbles though, clear, dark brown body underneath. The booze on the nose is sure present, but it just fills out the blanks, if any, left by the caramel, vanilla, oxidation, dried fruits, hints of chocolate and coffee and oxidation. The alcohol is much more evident in the flavor, sort of pushing, but far from annoying. Oxidation hints, some vanilla and a good dash of caramel and dried fruits. Full-bodied, warming and low on carbonation. Long, warming finish. A really nice beer, not sure if it deserves a top 50 rating, but it’s sure nice. 110819

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The highlight of DLD 2011. Pours a murky brown, barely any head. Aroma of strong bourbon, dark rich fruits, vanilla, caramel, molasses. Some notes of oak and chocolate. Flavor has a strong bourbon, vanilla and caramel apparentness, delicious and ass kicking at the same time. Lots of oak, sugar, and alcohol apparent in the flavor as well. Slick full bodied mouthfeel with a boozy finish. Pretty incredible beer.

(12oz bottle). Pours a dark cola color with minimal head. Aroma is beautiful bourbon, caramel and vanilla notes. Taste is sweet bourbon with more caramel, vanilla, and raisin.. Full bodied with a sticky texture. Smooth finish. Nice bourbon forward beer, but the old ale is still noticeable.

8/5/11. 12oz bottle courtesy KickInChalice. Cloudy dark brown pour with a very faint hint of brown head. Hugely complex aroma - sweet, caramel, molasses, vanilla, bourbon, coconut, and so much more. Wow. Awesome bourbon barrel flavor with sweet molasses, brown sugar, coconut, vanilla, oak, a bit of roast and coffee, and more... NICE!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle generously shared by bhensonb. Pours cola with no head at all and a bourbon and sour fruit aroma. There is a smooth really together fruity dark malt flavor with a slightly sour barely bitter toffee finish. There is a superb blend of flavors marvelously aged to produce a wonderful drinking experience. Thanks, Bill.
