Bottle shared by DalzAle (thanks Greg). Pours murky brown copper with little white head that just vanishes. Aroma is sugar bourbon and vanilla with some dark fruit. Taste is a lot of the same but finished bitter and warm. Palate is slick oily and a warming dry finish. I want more, my very own bottle!

2010 bottle. Pours a dark murky pondwater brown with practically no head. Notes of big thick syrupy toasted brown sugar, toffee, creme brulle, vanilla nut bourbon, and sweet warming toasted marshmellow booze. Big body. Tasty. Nice booze, sweet creme brule, and toasted vanilla, grahmcracker dryness, balance. Like.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2012 Bottle @ home, courtesy of bushmat1. Reddish, black appearance with no head. Sweet, caramel, cool bourbon, smooth, thick molasses, amazing nose. Delicious toffee, caramel, dried fruit, sweet, sweet bourbon flavor. Caramel, bourbon aftertaste. Really unbelievable. Holy fucking shit- this is just about the best stuff ever.

Pour is a dark cola into my Lions Pride snifter. Aroma is Bourbon vanilla, booze, loads of wood and a flutter of fig, molasses, plenty of dark toffee. Smooth mouthfeel with a bit of hotness. Flavor is intense bourbon, sweet sticky toffee, rich and malty with flutters of cherry flesh and fig.

Huge thanks to jblauvs for this one. Deep mahogany pour with no head. Aroma holds massive notes of cherry vanilla, bourbon, oak, toffee, caramel, and some fig, raisin, and other dark fruits; delectable. Flavor holds more monstrous wood and boozy bourbon, along with some nice bready toffee and molasses. Palate is smooth with a nice touch of alcohol heat. Really excellent stuff.

(bottle from ksurkin, thanks Ken!) Pours out reddish brown with a very thin tan head that quickly fades to nothing. Aroma is strong of bourbon, oak, vanilla, and caramel. Smells somewhat similar to creme brulee’. There’s also some coconut and faint soy sauce. Bit of butterscotch. Flavor possesses a strong bourbon presence, with plenty of charred oak taking up a significant portion of the flavor when this is cooler, and it definitely interferes with my perception of the malts. As this warms, the barrel tones down a bit, and I get more flavors of dark fruits, caramel, and some chocolate. Some oxidation too. The alcohol is very strong in this and it singes the tongue when drinking. Mouthfeel is very full and viscous and carbonation is restrained. Overall, this is a good beer, and it would be great if the alcohol were toned down and the barrel character was more restrained.
