Stoke. This is as fantastic as hoped. Big brown pour, light tanned head. Aroma is thick with bourbon, heavy vanilla, hints of tobacco, and minor chocolate. The flavor that come off this incredibly balanced beauty are quite full in the departments of coffee, cherries, burnt oak, multiple types of chocolate, and this beautiful long bourboned vanilla finish. Almost like ice cream...goddamn this is good.

hopscotch (8529) - 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!

Botttle from John’s Grocery, Portland. Pours dark brown with no head and a cat piss and treacle aroma. There is a plum and vanilla flavor with a bourbon finish. Leaves bitterness on the palate. Complex and tasty.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2012
22oz bottle shared by ygtbsm94: Pours a clear dark copper bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet dark caramel and bourbon vanilla oak nose with a touch of light fruity esters. Starts with pretty good fullness and dark caramel sweetness with a smooth vanilla oak and bourbon character before a slightly warming, drier finish. Pretty well-balanced and complex.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a cloudy opaque amber with a small, rough off-white head. Heavy alcohol in the nose but also an interesting an unusual hop blend - I feel I detect some Sorachi Ace, but that’s probably wishful thinking. Rich body, lovely caramel, a lovely Bourbon character and quite a bozy finish. I really dig this! 160612
