Black pour, minimal head, strong aroma of raisin, dried fruit, licorice...very nice. Flavor is intense raisin, soy sauce, cherries, chocolate...wow this is complex. Very noticeable alcohol presence, but it works. So many flavors and they all play well together. Soft carbonation. Lingering complex finish with pronounced alcohol burn. Moderately full mouthfeel. This thing rocks. I love this beer. A favorite.

Poured from a 12oz bottle from 48FaninCali. Thanks Austin. Pours a rich mahogany (like Ron Burgundy ’s office) with very little head. Aroma is a ton of bourbon and some caramel, licorice and toffee. Taste follows the nose. Bourbon predominates with lots of sweetness. An amazing beer. I will need to trade for more.

Just found my rating of this from trip to the brewery in December. Pours with a light tan head. Aroma is rich of vanilla, some spice, caramel and bourbon. Taste is much the same. Huge flavor with a lot going on. I think I like the regular fourth dimentia slightly better. But this is still amazing.

Sampled at DLD. Thanks for the share. Very dark with small head. Taste of brown sugar and other really dark fruits. Hint of oak. Very well done.

Wow, seriously? Thanks to Ashley (I hope that is the proper spelling. After sharing such a great beer, it would be a shame to butcher your name) for bringing this to the tasting. I’ve been dying to try this ever since Badnewsbeers threw in the regular version as a trade bonus last year. This has all of the great dark fruit, sweet candied sugar, and spices of the original with some heavy damn bourbon as well. Another level of complexity has been skillfully added without taking much away from the base. Well done.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2010 2005 Bottle shared w/ Chris & Simon. The type of beer you crack open, hold to your nose, smile, then laugh...don’t get much better than this. I really wanted to objectively "rate" this ... Very few beers that I’ve come across can compare. So rich, so decadent, so "WOW!". This is just about perfect for my taste ... that deep, dark, caramel - raisin - choco - fig - amazing wood combo ... smoothed out with a ridiculous velvety mouthfeel...a gum massage. Sweet, but in an amazing way ... that powerful sweet that stays dry. If there was ever a beer that overwhelmed the taste buds with the smallest of sips, this is it. Amazing how well this has held up. Slight oxidation, but no where near going far south. Hopefully we meet again

Aroma: toasted malts, toffee, molasses and brown sugar, nice bourbon notes, rich and slightly sweet, dark ripe fruits. Appearance: pours a brown/tan color, a bit murky, thin tan head with short retention. Flavor: lots of rich molasses and toffee, toasty malts, chocolate, fairly sweet but under control, bourbon, oak, slightly earthy, some plum and dates. Palate: full body, low-medium carbonation, chewy. Overall: great brew, quite complex, nice balance.
