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.

Bottle shared at Bruces 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 doesnt reflect the goodness.

JohnnyJ (4305) - 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.

lusikka (6178) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
375 ml bottle @ WPBF 2013.
Pours a dark brown colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, bourbon and some caramel. Flavour of sweet caramel malts, bourbon, grassy hops and yeast. Full bodied and oily mouthfeel. Finishes sweet, bourbon-like and yeasty. The raspberry version was much, much better. This one is way too yeasty and messy.

Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Sour wet wood and emulsion paint nose. Not great! Smooth palate, airy with mild carbonation. Milky bourbon, trace of sourness. Whisper of paint. Soft semi dry finish. Okay, a bit clunky.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown, cloudy pour with a very small, of white head. Aroma is full of bourbon oak, with a background of molasses and milk chocolate. Flavor is very sweet, full of slight smokey bourbon notes and light alcoholic. Slightly watery mouthfeel, yet full flavored and nice to drink. Great brew, mouthfeel could be better though.

brokensail (10735) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle @ Oakquinox 2013. Bourbon and oak aromas up front with some notes of chocolate, caramel, and dark fruit. Strong alcohol and solvent character, however. Lots of green apple, too. Hot alcohol flavor and lots of chemical/solvent notes. Sweet caramel, dark fruit, and mild vanilla. Decent bourbon and wood flavor with a green apple peel note on the finish.
