MiP (15253) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2008 Cask at GBBF08. Good roasted aroma, some vanilla, and a vinous hint. Very dark brown colour, small frothy light brown head. The flavour is quite strong and alcoholic, but also sweet enough to balance it. Again plenty of vanilla. Sweet vinous aftertaste with some burning alcohol.

Enniskillen (2045) - Salinas, California, USA - SEP 7, 2008

bleeng (1668) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2008
375 bottle. Very carbonated on opening. Black with a fluffy brown head. Nose is whiskey/bourbon/boozy which overwhelms any "beer" nose. Taste is overly bourbon/whiskey and alcoholic. Also hints of raisins, chocolate, sugar. Very sweet and tasty but the bourbon overwhelms everything in this beer. A sipper for sure with a full rich body.

kegbear (436) - Orange, California, USA - SEP 5, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 375 ml Bottle. Dark brown with a huge head. Aroma of toasted coconut, carmel and dried fruit. As it warmed the aroma became more like shellac. Taste is quite boozy with caramel, vanilla, dark dried fruit and some oak. Wonderful.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2008
Bottle (375ml corked & caged). Shared with blankboy & tupalev, bottle courtesy of irishboy - who else?. HAD to open this tonight - after the Labbat Blue Dry 10.1% it was an obligation. Poured deep, deep mahogany, large lasting fluffy mottled tan/brown head. Lush well-blended bourbon/vanilla with medium-roast malt, cocoa, nuttiness, dry grain - not over the top at all. Excellent taste - oak, vanilla, fresh grain, definite alcohol and a surprising presence of green herbal hops. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel, surprisingly lively mouthfeel, a fresh, bourbony finish but the underlying BW malt and alcohol stand up to the barrel aging well - outstanding: I think I prefer the (version 001 of course!) regular Angel’s Share, but this is stunning in its own right - once again, huge thanks, Richard.

DMRz (230) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2008
375 ml. bottle. Dark brown color with a medium tan head. Aromas of sweet chocolate malt, Irish coffee, and vanilla. Flavors of cappuccino, sweet vanilla, and a hint of oak. This beer is quite smooth and pleasantly warming. It was a pleasure to try such an excellent barrel aged beer - the only problem is now I really need to try the standard release... A superlative effort!!

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Bit of a gusher upon opening; quite carbonated. Delicious coconut caramel aroma. Sweet but not cloying with rich caramel and a light piney hop finish. Wish this was easier to find!

What a great beer. I cant decided if i like this one better than the original or not. Pours out a deep brown color with a large head. Aroma was sweet with notes of malt, choco, and best of all, BOURBON! Flavor is sweet, but dominated by the bourbon. This was another great beer by these guys.
