Bottle in trade from Rightcross55, thanks Matt. Brown caramel pour. Huge whiskey aroma with some sweetness. Taste is really smooth, boozy but rich and slight caramel. Really amazing.

mariuspoenari (703) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
35cl bottle. Dark caramel brown with a very thin beige head. Aroma includes whiskey, milk chocolate, toffee, bourbon and vanilla. The taste is very smooth and balanced, with notes of whiskey, bourbon, oak, vanilla, toffee, caramel, milk chocolate, maple syrup and molasses. The alcohol is very well hidden, only noticeable in the aftertaste. Super smooth mouthfeel with very low carbonation and a milk chocolate sweet aftertaste. Right up my alley, thank you, Prairie Artisan Ales.

rougeau13 (2424) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2016
Bottle at Whole Foods, Katy. Dark clear brown with very little khaki head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, whiskey barrel, and cocoa. Taste is sweet and boozy barrel with a very light bitterness. Full bodied, smooth, and pretty hot. Good stuff.

Swaroga (1954) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2016
Not a great looking beer. Dirty orange/brown with almost no head. Smell is dried fruits like plums, peaches, raisins, banana. Lots of hazel nuts, caramel and some little toffee. And of course vanilla, coconut, whisky from BA that are well pronounced. Oily and quite thick without much carbonation. Sweet with alcohol. But well rounded. Finish has a bit smoke like smoked plums. Nice stuff.

davidezdonz (202) - , HONG KONG - MAR 24, 2016
A 12 fl oz bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 15215, meaning it was bottled on 1st June 2015. It was poured into a Moonzen teku glass. It poured a cloudy dark reddish brown colour with a less than one finger tanned head that dissipated quickly and left some sparse lacing. Aromas are rich with bourbon, oak, caramel, toffee, vanilla and roasted malt. Tastes much like the aroma, sweet toffee, caramel and vanilla with a hit of bourbon and oak. There was also a hint of dark fruits, plum, raisin and fig on the finish. Mid to full bodied but leaning more towards full with low carbonation. Overall, a very nice brown ale as the bourbon, oak and sweet notes of toffee and caramel went well together. The 12% is not felt at all and goes down easy. Brown ale is not a style that has a great name, but this brew definitely redeems it.

McWorta (1289) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 11, 2016
Mahagony brown opalescent offering a small off white head. Lots of bourbon whisky vanilla aromas develop with notes of juicy malt, chocolate, raisin, subtle herbal-wood notes and traces of sweet liquorice. Fine carbonation, slick and smooth, mouth coating offering an elegant slender yet full body. Sweet vanilla-malt notes with herbal-liquorice notes. Fqint even sublime astringency giving the extra complexity and adds to the harmony. Subtle but lasting smooth finish.

wlajwl (5388) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Aroma and flavor is roasted/dark malts, coffee, a good amount of vinous, medium sweetness and a complex mix of acidity, slight sourness and dark bread in the finish.

MarcoDL (3631) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown pour. Delicious aroma of bourbon vanilla, ripe fruit, mild smooth booze and subtle caramel. Nice taste of smooth bourbon vanilla, chocolate, ripe red fruit, caramel, raisin, mild oak, caramelised malt and a long bourbony, mildly burning finish. Fantastic.

BrettGT (73) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2016
Aroma of hazelnut, whisky, mild rum, vanilla, wood and sweet toffee. Pours dark with reddish nuances, small white bubbly head. Above medium sweet and low bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation and long sweet whisky / rum finish. Brilliant aroma that is transferred to the taste buds. Has more of a sweet rum finish as it warms. Very good brown ale.
