valpoaj (707) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Poured into tulip glass...deep mahogany color with with puffy brown head that settles quickly into a lasting film. Nose is piney/grassy hops, roasty malts, and booze - not particularly strong to my surprise. Flavor is malty up front (caramel)...some wood, finishes with a hoppy note and booze. Finish on this one is very long to extreme - the Energizer Bunny of finishes. Palate is solid altogether - oily body but not overdone. This was a fine beer - not something I’d go to a lot, but enjoyable every-so-often.

kerenmk (3816) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 23, 2016
Bottle at Ran and Dale’s. Thanks Melody! 2013 bottle. Subtle oak and smoke, a little red fruit. Woodsy and bitter and a little dry. Dry mouthfeel and full-bodied - a little bit oxidized but good nonetheless.

Percy0103 (502) - MEXICO - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle, 660ml. A clear dark reddish beer with some sediments and a small foamy head. Deep oaked aroma of malt, spices, alcohol and firewood. Taste is bitter with a strong malt finish. Robust bodied with some carbonation and astrigency. Rich aftertaste of malt and spices with an alcoholic finish. A proper American Strong Ale.

Sdaniel90 (781) - Mexico City, MEXICO - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle, 660ml. Deep reddish with heavy sediment and a lively, frothy brown head. Rich roasted caramel and fruity aromas. Medium to robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Sweet malt character with a stinging dry hoppy bitterness. Absolutely delicious, this is how beer should be.

cobaink2 (365) - seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Pours with almost no head. Dark Amber color. Tastes of rich malts. There is lots of herbal flavor in there. Lots of resin from the hops on the back end. Just a tad of oak that I can detect. Not bad but I’m my opinion just a slight upgrade from the base.

ElCapitan22 (327) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Pours a dark brown color with nice lacing and has excellent head retention. Smells oaky and of bourbon. Tastes malty and of alcohol. Definite bourbon coming through. A real solid beer.

Brentv (611) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2015
From bomber, pours red with a one-finger yellow head. Aroma and taste of caramel. Taste is in-your-face bitter caramel, some citrus with a gentle sweetness. I would expect to find some vanilla notes here from the oak, but they don’t really come through - perhaps because everything else is so big. Medium mouthfeel. Bitter finish.
