hopscotch (9520) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Cloudy burnt-orange ale with a small creamy, white head. The bouquet is a melange of caramel, coconut, bourbon and vanilla. Full-bodied and silky with soft carbonation. The flavor provides smooth bourbon warmth and gobs of caramel. Although this bottle is approaching two years of age, the hops are still kicking. Finishes coconuty, bourbony and malty with a finale of acute, lingering hop bitterness. Much thanks to pantanap for shipping this world class treat my way!

651mL red wax thanks to ygtbsm94. Pours a hazy deep good to amber with a diminishing whiter head. Sweet bourbon and honey nose with small bacon fat and tawny malt character. Taste is salty, mild bourbon sweetness, with decent hop bitterness remaining. Very nice. Bitter dark chocolate finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BMan1113VR (7871) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a hazed brown body and a small, off-white head. Aromas are very peppery and spicy (oak and alcohol), rye, bourbon, peanut shells. Plenty of alcohol and a light caramelized maltiness. Heavy on the barrel. Flavors are spicy oak, boozy. Quite dry, light caramel and dark fruits. Not very bitter but incredibly spicy and a bit tannic. Medium bubbles and very warming.
