jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Keg @ CBC 2013. The pours thick, oily black with absolutely no head. The aromas huge sweet bourbon. Plenty of brown sugar-coated wood. Vanilla. Toasted shredded coconut. Raisin cake. Chocolate syrup. THe taste is more of the same. Rocky road fudge. Bourbon sweet accents. More vanilla and coconut. Burnt brownies. Rich and inky body, thick. Loads of sugar. Overall, pretty decadent stuff.

saxo (14044) - Hjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2013
Sample @ CBC. Nice head with good duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are rich roast malt, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, wood and hops. Wonderful.

kazin (187) - Malm, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle at home. Roasted malts and some ash. Bourbon-flavor is very present and improves the overall flavor of the beer.

caesar (5118) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
Tap @ CBC2013. Dark color, short head. Again the typical George aroma of ashes and roasted malts. But then with plain simple Four Roses Bourbon like aromas, so lot of cookie and biscuit and not as much vanilla as most bourbons have. Its ok, but I prefer the ones with a bit mroe vanilla.

Benzai (8214) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2013
Sampled @ CBC 2013. Opaque pitch black color, small brown head. Smell and taste malts, dark and roasted malts, clearly bourbon, just slightly alcohol and nicely sweet-bitter. Lovely beer. Great mouthfeel.

Benfi (532) - DENMARK - MAY 5, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2013 looks the same as the regular version. smells like stout candy... vinous, bs, vanilla, cream, dusty wood and roast. the flavor is the same but it has a sourness like it is going down hill.

kryon (1373) - SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2013
Pours black with low brown head Aromas of coffee, bourbon, hints of chocolate Taste of sweet sweet brown sugar, coffee powder Nice bitter ending but bit too sticky

Ktwse (1989) - SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2013
Pours black with minimal tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, bourbon barrels, port alcohol. Taste is peaty and boozy with thick cask wood sweetness. Body is full and creamy. No carbonation, pretty much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
