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.

Great stuff here! Nose is prunes, chocolate, molasses, and bourbon. Very soft on the palate. Smooth. Taste is similar with a nice combination of chocolate, molasses, and bourbon. Awesome stuff.

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.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Bottle shared by ryan. Slightly hazy brown pour. Light tan head. Aroma has bourbon, but unlike other barrel aged beers is not overpowering. Notes of vanilla. Sweet fruity flavor. Notes of chocolate and apple. Honey and molasses malt. Subtle bourbon throughout. Warm bitter finish. Alcohol is noticeable but not harsh or overpowering. Really hides the alcohol well. I’m surprised its 11%.

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.

Johnsense (1352) - - MAR 26, 2012
UPDATED: APR 21, 2012 Had both on tap at Kuhnhenn and a bottle at home. Dark brown with a finger of head. Big gobs of lace. Aroma of bourbon, cherry, candy, dark caramel, slight booze. Complex taste of candied dark fruit, bourbon, vanilla, dark toffee, raisin, wood. Some alcohol warming but the barrle is integrated well without dominating this beer. A sipper and one i’ll be cellaring.

Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle received in a trade. Sampled along the regular version with 2mikes. Dark red-brown with a tiny head that dissipated immediately. Nose is rich sweet malt, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, and booze. Taste is massive booze and rich sweet. Hot and sharp. Medicine and cherry and warming bourbon. Big and fuzzy and gorgeous.

2012. Oaky with figs and dates. Booze massages the throat while caramel and bold malts dance on my taste buds. Far too easy to drink, and drains from my glass way too quickly. Mmmm.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2012
This beer was great, it seemed to pour with almost no head, and had a very nice golden raisin color to it. Aromas were all raisins, wood, bourbon and molasses. The taste was full of sweet malts, soft oak flavors and a finish of mellow bourbon. Given the alcohol content I can say it was very hidden and easy to drink. Thanking OmegaX for this share.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Many many thanks to Jan and Charlotte fr this. Raisin brown color with a tiny brown head that disappears. Wonderful sweet malty aroma with roasted notes, caramel, bourbon,vanilla,wood. Just lovely ! Sweet malty flavour, easy drinkable without noticing the high abv, wood,bourbon,caramel, Very complex, yet extremely balanced and drinkable.
