ajnepple (2822) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Murky reddish, light brown appearance with a tan head. Aroma of oak, whiskey, dark malts, fruity esters, vanilla, candy sugar, yeast and light spice. Similar flavor, a touch boozy, but pretty smooth and complex. A nice full bodied sipper with a somewhat sweet finish.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draft sample. Cola pour. No head. Aroma of wood and dark fruits. The wood adds a nice earthy balance that elevates this above the base beer and the rum barrel version. Still not great. Could never do a full glass.

BelgianBeerGal (3279) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Release #1, bottle 13 of 300 from a trade. Fairly normal looking pour for a quadruple. Aroma is also true to form with some sweet malt and dark fruit plus molasses. The flavor again is a pretty nice quad and finishes with a little hint of the whiskey. Maybe a touch thin but nice.

Mora2000 (5879) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Medium-red pour with an off-white head. The aroma has some strong bourbon notes as well as some caramel and molasses. The flavor is similar with some cherry, toffee and bourbon notes coming through up front, and some maple and vanilla notes also being present. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

wchesser (1302) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Pours a deep mahogany red brown with a little cloudiness. Nose is toffee, butterscotch, bourbon, and barrel characteristics. Flavor follows. Big and a just a little hot. Delicious sipper. Needs some more time to come together. Going to get some more for the cellar.

Taste is nice dark fruits with whiskey, vanilla, some nice raisin and plum notes with a slight hint of booze, some molasses and acidic malts, cocoa powder, finishing sweet.
