sample at mondial de la bière 2015, mtl. dark brown pour with a small beige cap offering some retention and lacing. obvious bourbon-soaked wood, milk chocolate - smooth but also mole mexican-like notes, spicy red fruits - fat cabernet sauvignon grapes, brandy/bourbon-flambéed red fruits, hint of tart red grape juice, warming booze,. light carbonation, medium body - oily; semi-sweet and woody-spicy finish. bourbon but also strong winey character - tart-ish. quite enjoyed this one!

Bottle from the brewery. Pitch black with only a hint of khaki head around the edge. Bourbon is prominent in the nose with vanilla, wood, dark chocolate and just a hint of the cranberry. Flavour is light sweet malt with bitter coffee and chocolate and some light tartness from the cranberry. Alcohol not quite hidden. Medium creamy mouth with very soft carbonation. Lots going on here.

Johnsense (1038) - - MAR 14, 2015
Small bottle split 3 ways. Black pour. Lower carbonation and a small head. Big whiskey and roasted malt aroma. Corn up front, but this disappears as it warms and gives way to a nice balance of whisky, roasted malk, wood, and vanilla. Cranberry almost nil,though. Rich full body. Pair with a cigar.

17.02.2015. 0,355l Bottle at Corks Beer & Wine bar, Toronto. Tha name tags says it has an abv of 9%. Thanks for coming up with this one!! Very rich. Sweet vanilla bourbon aromas. Strong with good body. Flavours of dark malts. There is not so much flavours of hops, and its not very bitter. Dark malts, cold coffee, vanilla and Jack Daniels dominate. Very rich and good beer!!

Ferris (8447) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle - boozy bourbon, vanilla and chocolate. Jet black with no head. Bourbon notes, light cranberry and roasted malts. Too much bourbon and fruit, tastes likes the bad Christmas boozy fruit chocolates.

jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Mild hop presence, a bit of sweetness and some coffee is what I get out of it from the smell. Taste is coffee with a bit of sweetness right up front, the booze is over whelming and almost kills the any flavour.

Exceptional beer. My favorite beer for the Winter of 13/14. Aroma warm firm smell of bourbon; balances well with the notes of cocoa and dark cherry. Palate was full bodied and smooth. The bourbon finish was perfect. I was fortunate to try this the same evening as the Winter Beard on cask. I fully enjoyed this bear and cannot wait to get some of the next batch.
