Deep brown/black pour. Rich chewy malt aroma. An intense oak and bourbon component over a meaty sort of umami backbone. Intense and rich. A lot of vanilla and oak. Caramel and cooked toffee along with some figgy sweetness. Lovely brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a muddy reddish brown with almost no head.

The aroma is huge on cooked fruit, vanilla, cherries, and bourbon in general.

The flavor of th beer is fairly boozy with some blood orange and some candied fruit. It’s fairly sweet with some toffee & vanilla. It’s complex, but not complicated... generally very tasty.

s’nice

Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Opaque, sienna-brown color with a dark beige, creamy head that doesn’t last for very long. Aroma is HUGE. Incredible powerful. Heavily boozy oak, vanilla, bourbon & toffee coated dark prunes, raisins, sticky caramel, toasted notes underneath, tons of residual sweetness clashing with robust booze & warmth. Wow. Super creamy & thick on the palate. Bourbon infused dark fruits out of the gate; dates, figs, currant. Toasted brown sugar sweetness, caramel, toffee candy, vanilla, & even light notes of burnt marshmallow. Lots of wood, lots of oak, & lots of bourbon from start to finish. A flavor that is truly intense & lasts for days, finishing with vanilla, wood, prunes, bourbon, & buttery toffee. Have had this aged for one, two, three, & four years. Great every time.

Pours a deep burnt sienna color with a finger of eggshell foam. Round sweet molasses, caramel, boozy raisin, leather, soft bourbon, lingering nuttiness, toasted oak. Yum !

VsXsV (2573) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2014
Draught at CBC 2014. Murky copper liquid with a medium off-white head. Aroma of bourbon, raw sugar, caramel, wood and toffee. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with notes of bourbon and raw sugar. Full bodied with low carbonation. Wow. Everything I hoped it would be. Great bourbon aroma and lots of toffee notes.

Lectvay (170) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Thank you, Secret Santa. This beer is just right. Deep and full dark brown, very little head, but a second after you pour a subtle, off-white foam appears. Smell is banana bread, honey, molasses, booze. Sweet, thick, creamy. Truly fantastic.

Clownoisseur (325) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2015
On tap at Kuhnhenn. Pour is a deep mahogany, plum colored hues. A small off-white head fades to a couple dashes of lacing. Aromas of bold molasses, bourbon, wet oak, over-ripe fruits (raisin, plum, cherries), vanilla, caramel, toffee....just a bouquet of aroma! Taste is equally as complex and bold. Loads of bourbon and oak hit you quickly, but the sting fades to a harmony of sweet molasses, plum, raisin, caramel...then hints of oak, vanilla, port wine and char give it some edge. A final dose of oaked bourbon hits you on the way down, but it’s the ripe fruits and molasses that leave the lasting impression. Delicious stuff!!

Bottle from BlowOffTube, thanks for the opportunity! Ruby brown color with a smallish off white head that dissipates quickly. Toffee, fruity, vanilla, and light oak with hints of molasses and alcohol make up most of the aroma. Smells quite sweet but I like it. The flavor is sweet and fruity with bits of caramel and burnt sugars. Light vanilla and wood with some solid warming alcohol. Thick body with a sweet sticky mouthfeel. Great sipper!

dfroms (411) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle, 2011 vintage, third beer of Christmas Day. Pours a nearly opaque chestnut with no head. Aroma is deep complex malts, roasted plum, and sweet bourbon – I’m reminded a bit of King Henry, or at least my memory of it – with molasses, sherry, tart cherry, light oak, alcohol vapors, and faint soy. Taste is sweet plum, caramel, and cola fading into a boozy, bourbony middle and finishing with roast, bitter chocolate, scorched caramel, earth, raisins, and oak. Still hot even after a few years and somewhat thin mouthfeel. Good but not sure I’m on board with the hype; this may be over the hill.
