12oz bottle to snifter. Dark brown. Thin ring. Dark brown sugary sweetness. Some dark yummy fruits but mostly just burnt sugar and booze.

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.

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.

Pours murky dark brown with a thin ring of foam. Aroma is spice, caramel, oak, and bourbon. Taste is chocolate, toffee, spice, oak, dark fruit, vanilla, and booze. Really complex. Deserving of #1 in its class.

(Short review due to the massive amounts of beer I drank during the CBC13.) Good!

Bottle. Figured I might as well finally rate this, second bottle ever for me. Pours a very thick and dark mahogany brown with an ever so slight layer of bubbles, this is pushing syrupy, but definitely has carbonation. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, dark dried fruits, roasted cashews, and a whole lot of bourbon. Flavor will knock your socks off both figuratively and literally. This is strong, warm, thick, and so damn tasty. Leaves a really pleasant taste in the mouth after, but is a big time sipper.

Had a taste on tap at the brewery. Way too boozy and sweet for my taste. Full of raisiny booze flavors.
