Pours dark brown with a few bubbles for a head. Strong aroma of molasses, bourbon, vanilla, and wood. Taste is similar with a lot of sweetness and alcohol on the finish. Full body and sticky on the palate with a nice warming on the way down. Very good.

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.

jbeatty (1022) - New York, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle, 2012 batch, 03/4/2013. Pours dark brown, thin creamy light tan head, tight watery lacing around the glass. Aroma is vanilla, sweet caramel with chocolate, brown sugar, marshmallow, dark raisin bread, oak. Taste is caramel toffee fudge, dark fruity malts, darker bready notes floating behind a rich bourbon finish. Thick palate, chewy yet fluffy mouthfeel. Complex and decadent, great.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2011
12oz bottle, 2010 edition, courtesy of ibrew2or3. thanks so much for this one, dave! pours a beautiful, slightly sticky, hazy, cherry-wood color with a whispy beige head that dissipates quickly but leaves thick sheets of lace on the glass. aroma is absolutely stunning with huge notes of toffee, charleston pralines, and toasted marshmallows backed by heavy notes of figs, raisins, and dark cherry with smooth, woody oak, bourbon, and cinnamon spice bread that mellow into vanilla and sweet maple as it warms. flavor is simply wonderful as well and picks up a bit more fruit in the form of baked apples, raisins, plums, and dark cherries that layer atop rich toffee, subtle chocolate, and vanilla backed by smooth bourbon, spices, and toasted wood with the elegant hints of maple showing through on the back end. palate is rich and full bodied with a smooth balance of sweetness, tart dark fruits, and warming bourbon. overall, a marvelous old ale that definitely deserves to be in the top 50.

kathouse (1015) - Nevada, USA - MAR 18, 2013
2011 bottle. Deep brown with a nice cream colored head. Sweet aromas of brown sugar, toffee, and cream. Taste is ultra sweet as well but delightful none the less. No hop presence at all. Alcohol? Well that’s another story. Plenty of that to clean up the finish. A sipper to be sure.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Wow what a treat. Thanks to Patrick. Pours murky brown with almost no head just a small ring of bubbles around the rim of the glass. The nose is rich vanilla and english toffee, some light notes of wood and raisins, hints of licorice and caramel. The taste is high sweet with still a good amount of bitter. The body is heavy and the finish is long. Really nice.

BRW (1005) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAY 9, 2013
On tap at CBC. Copper-brown colour with white alacing. Oak and bourbon aroma. Malty and sweet taste, with hints of caramel. A little alcoholish. Medium to full body.

NeoHippie2 (992) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 3, 2014
Dark brown pour with minimal head. Aromas of bourbon, oak, raisins, and brown sugar. Flavor is big sweet dark fruits upfront with bourbon barrel notes coming through immediately after. A bit boozy and really sweet, this one is a slow sipper for sure. All around, pretty good brew.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2008 Bottle generously shared by Crosling. Poured a deep amber-brown color with a thin beige head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and toffee, fruity undertones (apple and light berry), oak, and light bourbon. Smelled awesome. Sweet, smooth caramel malts with a strong oak dryness and undertones of fruit (apple, plum, grapes) and a nice, complex bourbon finish. Super smooth on the palate with a spectacular oak bite that made me moan in joy as I drank it. Spectacular beer. Thank you much Nick.

Bottle pours murky brown with low head and carb. Aroma is sweet dark fruits and bourbon oak. Taste is similar with a thick sweet booze finish, but easy to drink
