COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quadrupel barrel aged on Bourbon barrels. Nice malty taste with notes of dark chocolate and dark fruits. The barrel aging gives a nice warmth from the alcohol as well as a nice aroma of vanilla.

What can i say? Not as good as the raspberry white / red wine edition, but still mindblowingly good. Almost like whiskey and coke or even a rum and coke, but made with the bestest of the best. Warm, smooth, creamy, not too sweet, perfect finish. Gracias.

Pours deep hazy mahogany into a tulip. Off white head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Soy and oak aromas. Hot with sweet caramel and vanilla upfront turning to over-ripe fruit before the dry lasting milk chocolate finish.

Theydon_Bois (8316) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle at home, from Cotteridge Vineyards - Brummigen, 25/08/13 Mikkeller rating #100. Pours a dark chestnut brown with reddish hues and a moderate light tan covering. Nose is bourbon coated dark fruits, figgy jam, light wood, booze steeped prunes, toffee fudge, tobacco. Taste comprises dark toffee fudge, bourbon infused oak, muscavado sugars, light cocoa, dark fruits, dates, raisens, figs. Medium bodied with bite, a little prickly and over carbed which lets this number down a little, subtle bourbon notes in the finish. A decent BA quad, the alcohol is well integrated making this a dangerously drinkable number. Only minus point being the carbonation level. Sub note:- I drank half of the bottle and left in the fridge to return to is a few hours later. The carbonation has softened and flattened. Rating points kept the same.

Bottle, pours a dark blue, aroma is heavy malty, light fruits, the flavour is a bit woody and there is some dark fruits, a bit tough to drink.

rbrazell (1631) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle from Knightly. Deep hazy brown/ruby color with a tan head. Nose is cherry, red wine vinegar, toffee malt, oak and vanilla. Sweet malt, toffee and hazelnut flavors, vanilla, oak, cherry with touches of plums. Smooth slightly creamy body with no trace of alcohol. Not too shabby.

Tmoney99 (10585) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark sweet fruit and woody whiskey alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

Une bouteille de 37.5 cl bue en compagnie de rodenbach99 et de sa femme. Une robe brune et un petit col mousseux découragé. Un nez très doux de chocolat et de caramel avec un bourbon fort qui transporte des notes fruitées et boisées. Au goût, une eau-de-vie qui propose du caramel et d’autres notes sucrées. En bouche, un corps faiblement structuré avec des bulles bien molles et une texture aqueuse. Une finale parfumée par un bourbon trop doux. Rien de catastrophique dans cette bière complètement dominée par le bourbon et les sucres,

Bouteille de 375ml partagée avec Patrick mais on aurait été mille puis il en aurait resté. Je suis devant le dilemme de «rater» selon que la bière est bien faite ou buvable. Ici la bière est bien fabriquée mais elle est tout simplement imbuvable. Elle est trop sucrée, trop alcoolisée, trop bourbonnée par être vraiment intéressante. Franchement ce n’est pas pour moi.

drowland (5998) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 28, 2013
7/28/13. 375mL bottle from Grassroots. Deep amber brown pour with a nice fluffy khaki head that sticks like a champ and coats the glass, even in lumps in spots. Mild fruity aroma, mildly malty - smells like beer, honestly - almost Budweiser in a sense (seriously) - with some BA burn. Surprisingly light flavor, some sweet fruits, water, and light BA and metal. I’m surprised at how light and unflavorful this is while being surprised at how drinkable it is considering the style and ABV. Eh.
