Koelschtrinker (14085) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 23, 2013
Vanilliger Antrunk, weich, harmlos. Deutlich Bourbon, mild erdig, weiter Vanille. Ebenfalls nur gering röstig, zum Ende alkoholisch. Ein merkwürdig mildes Bier. 8/11/10/9/9/10

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - FEB 23, 2010
A: The bottle opened with a slight pop and the pour was lowly carbonated, but did feature some bubbles. The beer itself is viscous and black with a minimal tan colored head. S: The nose is very nice with notes of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and coffee. Perhaps a little bit of alcohol heat, but nothing overwhelming. T: The great nose did not quite translate to the flavor. The flavor is very heavy on the bourbon, with the chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt flavors coming through more as the beer warms up. Unfortunately, so does the alcohol. M: The body is full, and the carbonation is sufficient for the style, but could use some more bubbles. D: This beer can be one of my absolute favorites, but this iteration of it is a bit disappointing. The alcohol comes through just a bit too much, unfortunately, but I would still recommend this beer and drink it any time.

bhensonb (12959) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 10, 2008
12.7 oz / 375 ml bottle; a solitaire at Monument in Concord. Very dark brown color with ruby notes in the depths. A vigorous tan head that didn’t last long. Anise, dark roasted malt, bourbon/vinous, plums, and arguably a lot more. A little heat is noticeable. It is a bit tarry, has wood, near burnt malt, espresso, cooked plums. Oak seems to develop with time. A tad rough, but quite a taste treat.

Tmoney99 (12408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2010
Bottle shared by Ben aka ShareANeveda. Poured dark brown with a moderate frothy brown head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, woody with a small alcohol aroma. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Heavy bourbon woody and malt sweet flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.
