bottle from CaryTheDude for my 1000th rating! Thanks man! Bottle opens with a nice pop. Pours very dark almost black with slight tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, bourbon, wood. Flavor of bourbon, coffee, vinous, dark fruits. A bit of chocolate cream. The barrel really comes out in this one. Thinner mouthfeel than i expected, but complemented by a nice, soft carbonation with a slightly boozy finish. Absolutely stunning awesome brew. I owe TheDude for this one.

2007 Bottle samples June 2009. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Imediately the aroma is just huge. Maybe I liked this one extra because I had it following a bunch of sours and it was a great change. I think it would be great anytime. Malty goodness, mellow, some wood, some bourbon, vanilla, toffee. Still a bit hot after two years. Crazy good.

Vintage 2008 Strong aroams of bourbon, vanilla, roasted malts. Had a fluffy foamy head, tan and quite noticable. Tasted wonderful, with bourbon, roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla. Was light, airy, fluffy in the mouthfeel. Really amazing.

Had on tap at Lost Abbey with DuffmanSW and mspindler for my birthday. This was a very good beer. It was very similar to angel share brandy barrel but a little more bitter on the finish. It was easier to drink and a little more dry. I think I would prefer this over the angel share.

Bottle at Nørrebro Bryghus. Pouring pitch black with a dense creamy dark brown head. Vinous aroma with notes of raisins, prunes, vanilla, malt and brown sugar. It has a great complex flavour of prunes, plumes, wood, malt, vanilla and lots of bourbon. Lovely!
