Reddish brown pour. Nose of fruit roll-ups, caramel, spice, and bourbon. Flavor is caramel-covered fruit, cherry, boozy bourbon, and wood tannin. Lingering fruit and wood. Just okay.

tomer (2163) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - DEC 4, 2014
at a tasting, thanks zvikar, smallish creamy head, quite clear brown color, aroma of cognac, wood, coconut, vanila, bread and a hint of rum baba, sweet caramel flavor, dried dark fruits and a hint of cognac with some spiciness showing from time to time. Melllow but with an overwhelming barrel character and not too exciting.

DSG (8448) - Tel Aviv, - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. Nice clear red-amber. Lovely aroma with malt, caramel, some cookies, bourbon, vanilla, some coconut, a bit of nuts, a bit of chocolate and a bit of alcohol. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, vanilla, cookies, bourbon, some fruitiness and a light chocolate note. Rounded mouthfeel. Very good stuff.

Leighton (14027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle shared at chrisoís Post-GBBF 2014 Tasting - London. Pours clear amber with a bubbly white head. Toffee on the nose, light butterscotch, ripe fruits. Big sweet flavor, boozy, with some buttery toffee and rich fruits. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Gooey semi-dark sugars on the finish with present booze, buttery toffee, rich ripe fruits. So so.

Bottle. Clear dark amber. One of the best heads Iíve ever seen on a high gravity beer. Aroma is sweet, fruit cake, caramel. Taste is too much alcohol. Sweet, caramel, dried fruit.

A very nice heavy hitter from the mercurial New Holland Brewing Co. Damn, this thing is like a drinkable form of turpentine! Hot as hell, and I love it! In your face caramel and raisin, somewhat smoothed out by wheaty characteristics. Super expense alert per bottle; we are getting into the .33 cents per ounce range. Fun to try.

Matt picked this bottle up for me at Total Wine. The description is perfect. Very, very rich flavors, some dark fruit, bourbon, though the wheat isnít apparent. Delicious, but a slow drinker.

Aroma of sweet bourbon and figgy caramel. Flavors of caramel corn, butter, sugar, bourbon. Palate is medium, not too syrupy. Wonderful.

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Sample at Daily Growler UA. The beer is clear deep reddish-amber color with a medium white head that recedes quickly to a thin outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bourbon, dark fruit and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, figs and caramel malt. The finish is mildly boozy with a rich malt and bourbon aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
