Sample at Jackie O’s on 2/5/11. Pours hazy brown with a thin beige head. Aroma of figs, caramel, booze, vanilla, oak and marshmallow. Flavor starts with boozy vanilla oak and continues on to dark fruits, chocolate, caramel and berries before a brandy and bourbon finish. Between the two I have to give the nod to the regular 4th D, but both are divine.

2010 Vintage - Bottle- Via Trade. Gracias. Pours somewhat, well, mostly flat looking except the thinnest line I have ever seen of off-white bubbles around the glass’ edge. Bourbon-like nose with some licorice and some sherry notes too. Firm, sweet, dessert-like deliciousness. adequate carbonation. Bourbon, vanilla, licorice, coffee cake, caramel, toffee...just nice velvety sweet goodness that seems to hide the alcohol completely. Not cumbersome on the sweetness either...and though you can’t taste the alcohol, you certainly feel its warmth. Very nice, though not overly complex...but still, a nicely relaxing sipper for sure.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2011
On tap at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Opaque murky orange-brown body, thin tight tan head. Potent nose with notes of toasted coconut, wood, sharp alcohol, and sugars. Sweet body with sharp alcohol and bourbon, dominated by brown sugar and tannic oak, almost candy-like with sharp, hot alcohol. Vinous. Intense and delicious.

Bottle. Courtesy of SourNotes, 2010 version. Pours a dark cola like brown color with very slight collared head. The nose is extreme, with a mix of caramel, bourbon, vanilla, and dark fruit. Slight bite of booze in the start with a very caramel start mixed with dark fruit. Slight banana as well. Medium/heavy mouthfeel with slight carbonation. Warming alcohol notes. Very easy drinking.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 20, 2011
A: The beer pours a murky dark brown color with a small layer of off-white/kahki head. S: Smells like big time -bals. Tongs of bourbon and vanilla with a touch of oak. Lots of great dark fruits like raisins and dates, brown sugar, toffee, and caramel. A touch of sherry in there as well. T: Damn this is delicious. Caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and plenty of vanilla. Lots of bourbon, a bit of oak, maybe even some coconut in there too. A nice chocolatey oxidation to it and some more of the sherry flavor. M: The body is medium to full with a smooth and sufficient carbonation. D: It’s kind of boozy, but damn is this stuff is tasty. I could drink a bottle of this almost any day.

This poured a very murky medium brown color with a very small beige head. Aroma was of lots of oak, bourbon, roasted malts, vanilla, light alcohol and dark fruits, just awesome. Flavor was certainly not a letdown from the aroma, just silky smooth bourbon, with nice malty sweetness, toffee, light smoke, and a bit roasted too. Reminded me alot of Backwoods Bastard without the alcohol heat. Just amazing stuff.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Sample at the Jackie O’s Bottle Sale/ Stout and Big Beer Fest on 02/05/2011, thanks to Normyk apparently. Pours a dark mahogany brown color with a wispy light beige head that disappears quickly. Sparse lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate and roasted nuts. Rich body with flavors of raisins, bourbon, sweet caramel and vanilla. The finish is biscuity malt, caramel and sweet ripe fruit. Very good beer all around.

On tap at the brew kettle. Pours murky dark brownish red color with no head. Aroma is bourbon, oak, brown sugar, fig, plum, tobacco, and some candy. Heavy mouthfeel. Flavors follow the nose exactly. The bourbon is really upfront, but the flavors stand up well to the booze. A touch hot. This kind of reminds me of angels share to an extent. A great beer.

Thanks to the late chswimmer for this tick. Deep dark brown pour with minimal off-white head. Big bourbon aroma with caramel, toffee, roast, and molasses. Maybe some dark fruit. The flavor is also big on bourbon. A little -bal to it as well lending some considerable oaky notes. Complex with candied dark fruits, molasses, roast, and toffee. Medium-full bodied and with slight tannins and lower carbonation. Overall a great -bal aged beer from Kuhnhenn. Way better than the non-bal version.
