37.5cl Bottle shared, generous gift from caesar, thanks a lot Cees!! Murky copper amber colour, off white head. Aroma is amazing, loads of bourbon, vanilla, Bordeaux wine, cognac, sweet honeyed malts. Flavour is thick, malty, lots of bourbon, vanilla, honey, oxidised wine, sweet cognac, light bitter finish. Full-bodied. Great stuff.

Nocturne (632) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
375ml bottle. Hazy dark amber pour with thin ring of head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, oak, fruitiness. Smells very refined. Taste is toffee, brown sugar, varnish. Bit too much varnish. Barrels kicking in as it finishes. Nice, but didnít really improve over the original in my view.

Mora2000 (5358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Brown pour with a white head. The aroma is full of whiskey with some strong oak and bourbon notes. The flavor is similar. I get a good dose of bourbon and toffee as well as some cherries. Overall, the flavor is a bit muddy. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. A disappointment after loving the regular and Batch 9 version of this beer.

From a corked and caged 375 ml bottle shared at home. Pours a clear brownish amber with a thin off white head. Aroma of banana lacquer. Flavors of oak, vanilla, caramel and raisins. Moderate to heavy mouthfeel with light carbonation. Sweet boozy finish.

zach8270 (3220) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2013
(bottle - corked & caged 375 ml) Deep copper pour with a creamy tan head. Big oak and sweet malt aroma with a good sweet vanilla and bourbon backbone. Flavor has that same mixture of sweet malts and the sweetness from the bourbon barrel but them moves to a slightly earthy and dark fruit middle with a different hint of wood note at the finish. Very smooth and silky without that overly boozy feel to it.

Maltser85 (151) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - OCT 7, 2013
The beer pours a dark murky caramel brown color. No head to speak of. Aroma is very woody up front. Bourbon notes, a bit of vanilla. Large dark fruit notes. Some bready notes. The initial flavor is smooth, typical quad flavors that roll into a nice barrel character that finishes with a significant alcohol burn. After taste is bready and malty and I canít get past the barrel to enjoy the beer. The beer is very smooth for what it is, but I donít know what else to say here. Not my style.
