fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - OCT 7, 2013
Corked bottle
Pours a dark mahogany color, clean, with medium sized head. Aroma of malt and oak barrel, cane sugar, hint of oxidisation. Full bodied; rather sweet caramel flavor with sweet nuts traces; unfortunately the alcohol is too present, and it seems to be the sole counterpart of the sweetness, rather than some more solid bitterness. Some vegetable soup in the end.
Easily cloying.

fletchfighters (1117) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2014
Thanks to Baguio for the beer. 500 ML bottle Ruby amber color with a light tan collar. Bits of spotty lacing Nose is mostly barrel. Brown sugar, oak, vanilla, caramel, bourbon, and bourbon soaked raisin. Taste is eerie similar. Very barrel forward. Is there a base beer?? Medium carbonation, slick and slightly syrupy. ABV well hidden. Beer shows that North can barrel age as well as anybody.

hopscotch (9381) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle... RBSG 2014… Pours clear and copper with no head. The aroma is fruity and vinous - dates and other dark fruits with a light splash of Oloroso sherry - flanked by a faint, earthy, leather component. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor offers sweet dates, gooey caramel, dark fruits, toasted oak and bourbon booziness. Sweet, warming finish.

The taste is bitter-sweet, caramel, wood, vanilla, toasted coconut, bourbon, brown sugar, candy and toffee with a dry, warming finish. Fullish body and fine carbonation. Smooth and well-rounded. This one surprised me....very nice indeed!
