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 (5918) - 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.

jdb288 (584) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 19, 2014
2012 bottle opened in 2014. Pours muddy red brown with no head. Aroma is nutty, allspice, slightly floral. Taste is like sticky pudding; lots of toffee here with some great bourbon notes in the background. Super smooth and deceptively drinkable.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2014

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2014
2012 vintage 330 ml bottle at home. Pours deep brown amber with a tiny light beige head. Rich vanilla and milk chocolate nose, raisins and fresh forest nut aroma’s, deep caramel. Rich body, vanilla sweetness and slight bitterness, with quite some heat, yet well balanced with the sweetness. Taste of rich salty caramel and tangerine bitterness. Nice!

fiammanghilla (959) - Genova, ITALY - MAY 23, 2014
Bottiglia 355ml (2011), ordinata su domus birrae e bevuta a casa. Color caramello bruciato praticamente senza schiuma. Corpo oleoso e potente, l’alcol si fa sentire sul finale, scaldando parecchio. Malti in evidenza già al naso, che proseguono in bocca, legnosità ed una punta di bourbon. Finale amaro ed alcolico. Difficile ma imponente.

ClubGonzo (5467) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2014
Tap sample at CBC 2014. Dark clear mahogany body, medium creamy off-white head. Nose is sweet caramel, burnt sugar, toffee, vanilla, bourbon and hints of wood, peanuts and alcohol. Taste is bourbon, vanilla, wood, peanuts, alcohol, muscovado sugars and hints of syrup and caramel. Full body, medium carbonation. Lovely strong and sweet stuff again from Kuhnhenn.

StoutHead (945) - DENMARK - MAY 14, 2014
Draught at CBC 2014. Pours a deep brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is of toasted malt and caramel. Taste is of sweet dark fruits, malt, chocolate, vanilla and bourbon. Overall short aftertaste, although notes of the barrel ageing sticks around for a while. Medium body and carbonation. Very good for an ale, but it really is the barrel ageing that makes it something special.
