Bottle from Bacterial, thanks Jeff. Pours brown with minimal head. Tons of oak on this, nice booziness to it also.

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.

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.

even a year out this one was pretty hot, but overall an interesting variation on a brown ale.

jackl (4576) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Brownish pour with a small head. Very ashy, rustic nose. Roasted malts, forest fire. Some buggy wood and red fruits. Jammy raspberry and leaf pile. A bit of hot butterscotch and vanilla-coated pear. Woody. Medium body, soft carbonation. Interesting.

CanIHave4Beers (3230) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Pours a deep brown with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma has a lot of vanilla and bourbon, lots of caramel, some light roastiness and is generally rich and aromatic all around. It is a touch tame on alcohol character for as big as it is.

The flavor is roasty with lots of rich caramel and bourbon notes. It’s very sweet, booze, bourbon, and vanilla forward all the way... but enjoyably so.
Just a really fun example of a bourbon treatment.

Hazy deep brown red. Vibeous nose with some caramel. Light brown colored head. Toasted smell. Taste is boozy with some wine and wood. Notes of toasty caramel. Fantastic.

Bottle. Hazy deep brown liquid with medium light tan head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, bourbon, wood, raw sugar, toffee and bread. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, wood and raw sugar. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty nice.
