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.

Harrjitzuu (7) - - JUN 17, 2013 does not count
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose contains loads of vanilla and apples. Taste reveals healthy amounts of barrel, vanilla and toffee. Perhaps missing some sugars to give a denser mouthfeel. Really good if you like barrel aged beer

ericdevin (668) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a medium brown, with minimal head. Aroma is farmhouse funk, bourbon, maybe some apple notes as well, yummy. Body is medium/lively, finish is slightly herbal, then boozy. Not bad, just not breathtaking.

JorisPPattyn (7808) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2013
Very good cream-tan head over brown-black beer with a red sheen. Strong nose of wood, benzene, rubber, chocolate and liqueur, pralines. Chocolate pudding or cake, vla. Sweet-liqueurish, with a bitterish, woody, quite dry finish. Wood, X-mas spray, spices. Retronasal faint sulphury rubber. Vanilla after some warming, but also more benzene. Very spritzy MF, peculiar for a B.A. beer. Still slick, rather well-bodied, warming. The benzene smell becomes a true liabillity warming up. For the rest, rather interesting brew.

McNeillR (1093) - SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Wet tobacco, light pepperiness. Brown ale body, touch of sedimenty cloud. Frothy tan head. Tickle of chalky sourness, peppery edge to middle and little bourbon before the finish. Taught and dry but not terribly boozy. Not close to the Red Wine vibe at all.

Bottle, Sighthill Tasting

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to Jack and his drunken impulse buys! Pours dark brown with a fine beige head. Rich raisins in here. Big sweetness, some alcohol. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately warming to finish with dry raisins and dark bread. Very good stuff overall, even if my rating doesn’t reflect the goodness.

JohnnyJ (4256) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle at oakquinox 2013. Brown pour, with an off white head. Heavy barrel character, bourbon, raisin, caramel, a bit of chocolate, and a strange sour apple acidity. Not great.
