Yorker (1190) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
Corked 75 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy brown with a lot of sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are dried fruit, vanilla, bourbon, and caramel - with a slightly bitter finish.

slowrunner77 (1782) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2014
"Lots of whiskey on the nose, with some wood and sweet malts coming through as well. A little hot, but not to a fault. Medium bodied (especially for such a strong brew) with ample carbonation. Flavor is whiskey dominant as well, vanilla, oak, semi-sweet, quite a bit warming. Definitely a solid sipper. Thank you Hannah."

CloakedDagger (597) - - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a murky opaque dark brown with a beige head. Very spicy aroma, loads of vanilla and licorice allsorts - and booze. Rich body, heavy caramel and chocolate with a distinct sweet impact of the whiskey barrels. Very little Brown Ale here, if there ever was any roastiness it’s definitely gone now. But a very delicious border Barley Wine. A little too boozy throughout though. 040914

Flaska blindprovas. Barleywine-drag och varma alkoholer. Nyans av bourbon. Bra balans. (vad är imperial brown?)

aleigator (220) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2014
Thank you very much for this one Jason! Pours a murky brown color with a fiery, rubin-red hint in it, while its head diminishes fast. Has a boozy, sweet nose of caramel, molasse and a sharp alcohol bite among oaken earthiness. Tastes of scorched caramel, earthy malts, accompanied by a gentle pleasant oakiness. A spicy, burning boozines gets calmed by sweet malts and hints of vanilla, while the wooden oak notes settle down on the back of the palate. Has a high, sparkling carbonation, which pushes malt sweetness on a detectable level during the finish, with warming, wooden alcoholic hints in the background.

Habanero (2617) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2014
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy, amber with an average tan head. Aroma of caramel, bret, wood, ripe fruits and whiskey notes.Sweet flavor that ends up with bitter notes and alcohol. A nice Strong Ale.

fluffy (1664) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2014
even a year out this one was pretty hot, but overall an interesting variation on a brown ale.
