2012 bottle. Pours dark copper in color with a dissipating head that ends up leaving a fine layer of foam and a ring that hugs my glass. The aroma is full of bourbon, vanilla, carmel malts, very toffee like, and a hint of dark fruit. In tasting I noticed medium levels of sweet bourbon, rich malt flavor, sweet syrup like sugars, vanilla, hint of oak, and figs. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering of booze and sweetness. The beverage balances well for a high abv brew. Overall this is a must try for barrel aging fans.

Bottle shared by tyler, thanks a bunch for this. Muddy brown pour, very litte head, really just a light skim of small bubbles. Sticky bubbles on the side of the glass. Aroma is huge bourbon, brown sugar, slightly ashy, chocolate, toffee, salted caramel. Very nice. Taste is liquid brown sugar, oak, vanilla, and chocolate. Very slightly smokey and ashy, though not in a bad way. Some slight hints of dark fruit, raisins mostly. Really amazing. Very slight carbonation, just enough to lighten it on the tongue. Awesome.

jethrodium (357) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 18, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with almost no head and a few bubbles around the edge. No lacing. The aroma is huge vanilla, bourbon, caramel, and light chocolate, as well as quite a bit of booze. The taste is sweet with caramel, toffee, bourbon, vanilla, and some light chocolate. The finish has a strong alcohol presence. Full bodied. Low carbonation. This was quite good despite the alcohol being very prominent.

jbrana (352) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2013
Very sweet with a strong dark fruit presence that is met with vanilla, marshmallow, caramel, and slight bourbon. Has a slight tartness which helps balance the sweetness a little.

Bottle thanks to rogee64 . Pours a very dark brown with almost no head. Aroma of bourbon, wood, caramel, chocolate, raisins, coconut. Taste is sweet, with more bourbon and dark fruit flavors, just a little alcohol. Dry woody, alcoholic finish. This beer is incredibly smooth, buttery even. Very full bodied, soft carbonation.
