Had one of these for my birthday dinner at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach. There is a lot of flavour present in this bad boy. Lots of depth with the beer. I was surprised it was 12.5% ABV. Very sweet and full of whiskey flavour. Are they sure that they totally emptied the barrel before adding beer to it? Definitely a great experience and one of my favourites from lost abbey.

Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Sampled at DLD 2008. Nice looking frothy head with some decent lacing. Wonderful aromas of bourbon, vanilla and oak. I absolutely love the 2006 brandy barrel verison and was really excited to try this. Much thinner on the palate than its brandy counterpart. Bourbon was a bit too much and rough around the edges. Still had a wonderful deep caramelization to it. Sticky and slick on the palate. Good complexity in the base beer, but the whiskey just didn’t seem to blend as nicely as the brandy barrel version. A bit let-down, but overall, tasty stuff and still well made.

Bottle sampled with the Mad_indian. Pours dark with a large pillow of a beige head. Aroma of oak, bourbon, caramel, molasses, and vanilla absolutely perfect. The flavor is sweet, molasses, caramel, chocolate vanilla, bourbon, oak all perfectly blended. excellent body, alcohol is hidden quite well. Excellent brew.

Bottle from ebay purchase, sampled with stegosaurus. WOW !! Thats really all I need too say. Brown perfect pout with long lasting 1 and a half finger head. Aromas of heavenly wood, bourbon, caramel, vanilla and alcohol. The taste was all these things but blended to absolute perfection. Possibly the best thing I have ever tasted. I sported a woodrow wilson and the cerimonial bottle hump was done.

unclemattie (4356) - Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
375ml, caged and corked. Pours a very dark brown/ black, hints of garnet. Aroma of sweetness. Oh, Candy! Dark fruit, vanilla, and that whiskey aroma that Bridgette lives for. Flavor is sweet, roasty, vanilla, some charcoal, lots of cherries, molasses, and heat. It has a big burn. As my buddy Seth said, "There are people who barrel age beer, then there are people who know how to barrel age a beer!" I feel more than lucky to have the Atl Crew to have shared this amazing bottle.

Thanks to bu11zeye for the trade. Pours a deep brown with ruby/amber notes and a medium off white head with spotty lacing. Oh I forgot to mention...the cork jumped off the bottle like a shotgun, seriously lucky lose an eye. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, whiskey, vanilla, nuts, oak, lightly roasted malt, molasses, tobacco and a little sugary. Flavor of dark fruits, toffee, nuts, whiskey, like oak, caramel, nuts, vanilla, a bit of alcohol and light roast.

375ml. bottle thanks to Toncatcher. Dark brown color with a small tan head. Lots of vanilla on first whiff, followed by the bourbon and some oak. Smooth bourbon flavor with some roasted malts and again some nice vanilla notes along with brown sugar. Warming alcoholic finish.

Oakes (13454) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2008
Dark brown colour. Plummy, slightly smokey with hints of wood. A little bit spritzy (subsequent samples were not, ftr). Spicy, with a bit of alcohol burn. Well-rounded. Three recent resamples have revealed some wonderfully rich malts, and a well-integrated bourbon accent.

Pour is deep brown with a thin tan head...aroma is not as strong as I would have thought...some bourbon and toasty notes...taste is sweet and seems super carbonated...some vanilla and caramel, but not much...hmmmmm.....
