Bottle. Pours fairly black color with a tan 2 finger head. The bourbon aromas are the first thing that hits me as I take a smell followed by dark roast notes and vanilla. As I take my first sip I soon realize the mouthfeel to me is just too light. I don’t think these bottles are infected but just that the carbonation level is fairly high for this style and really takes away from the beer. The tastes I get are the bourbon, oak, earthy, vanilla, and dark roast. Really the flavor I like but I just can’t get passed the carbonation. Too bad.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Sampled from 500 ml bottle (gold wax) and shared by DalzAle. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a thick and rocky tan head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate malt, fruity apple/pear, bourbon, and a touch of vanilla. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of chocolate malt, bourbon with some noticeable apple and vanilla. Finish is dry with mostly a dark malt aftertaste with just a hint of bourbon.

MeadMe (1602) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2010
A: Pours a nice dark black hue. Small tan head. No retention or lace. S: Aromas of nice roasted malt. Chocolate, coffee, molasses, and dark fruit. T: Wonderful roast. Lots of chocolate, coffee, and sweet molasses. Light barrel notes. Hints of oak, coconut, and vanilla. Complex, tasty and good. M: Medium in body, sweet with perfect barrel notes. I thought it would be infected but I picked up none of those notes. Nice and tasty. Worth the trade. D: Nice and drinkable. Tasty goodness in a bottle.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Massive latte head rises above a dark mahogany body...lots of lacing left inside the glass. Aroma shows lots of wood, cocoa, roasted malt, caramel and vanilla. Flavor is filled with barrel, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and ash. The carbonation is distracting and incredibly prickly. This one sizzles on the tongue. Pretty good but not outstanding.

Bottle via a trade with vikinghammer. Pours with a black body and a huge tan head. Aroma of pear, vanilla, chocolate, alcohol and barrel. Taste is chocolate, nutty, and maybe the start of a light infection. Some tannins. Very lively carbonation.
