(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.

[Bottle, thanks Guerde!] Pours reddish brown with virtually no head. Aroma is boozy, but some fruitiness (raspberry and cherry), coconut, oak, chocolate and caramel. Taste is very hot, some oxidation has flattened the malt a bit, some chocolate, bourbon, dark fruits in the background.Thick, smooth, long finish. Overall, it got better the longer I drank it, but not quite as good as the original. Thanks again, Guerde!

12oz bottle (mine says 13.5%). Poured a dark and muddy brown color with a very small sized tan head. Aromas of lots of wood, oak, caramel, vanilla, marshmallows, dark fruits, and bourbon. Tastes of dark fruits, brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla, and caramel. Sweet but not cloying. Some alcohol burn in the finish, but expected for 13+%.

Pour form a bottle. Thank you Tyler for sending this one. deep dark brown with virtually no head. Sweet malt with bourbon aromas off the top. Full rich body with a smooth character. Complex flavors of caramel malt, dark dried fruit, and barrel oakiness. Alcohol present for sure. Good sippin beer no doubt. Complex mix of flavors. Pretty strong resemblance of Angels Share in my book. Very good and exceeded my expectations.

Bottle shared by Ryan. Aroma is pretty sweet with hints of dark malts, brown sugar, booze, and bourbon. Flavors are very well balanced with many of the aromas coming through in flavor. ABV is masked very well amongst the flavors.

From a bottle side by side with the regular 4th dementia ale, at le mondiale 2011. Just like my ratings for the original 4th dementia ale, very similar but add loads of bourbon and vanillanto every aspect of this beer. The barrel ageing adds quite a bit to the mouthfeel to an already viscous beer. The mouthfeel was bordering huge barrel aged impy stout territory. At times the bourbon was over powering, at times it was welcome. A pretty intense beer, a real sipper. Quite easy drinking considering.....beware! Muhhahahah!

Thanks to my buddy Matt for this. 12oz bottle, 2010. Pours a deep, viscous cola brown with a very small bubbly beige head. Big nose of vanilla, bourbon, caramel, toffee, molasses and hints of oak. Very bold on the the palate with flavors similar to those found in the nose. Glad I have more of this....;)

2010 vintage bottle. Had to do an international trade to get this. Pours black with a thin tan head. Nose is of molasses and bourbon. Taste is of bourbon and chocolate tootsie roll. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy with alcohol noticeable. Good brew. Glad I got to try it. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to try this until midnight and nodded off while drinking it. When i woke up, I reached for my glass on the desk and knocked it to the floor, losing the remaining third of the pour and breaking a favorite glass.
