brokensail (13616) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Thanks, Dallas. Pretty much black in color with a tan head. Smells of dark fruits, rye whiskey, and vanilla. A touch of licorice and some burnt sugar. Nice enough roasted malt and charred oak as well. Some sweet vanilla, whiskey, and dark fruits. Slight creme brulee. A bit boozy and roasty on the finish.

mcberko (9626) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
750mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out intense bourbon barrels, almost a tartness from the wood and light cocoa. Flavour follows suit, with super boozy barrel notes, tart fruits, and wood. Fairly complex, but I’m a little put off by the sourness. Still, very nice stuff.

Leighton (14334) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle shared at the chriso Snow Tasting in London - thanks to Jan. Pours dark, brown-black with a creamy, beige head. The nose holds some alcohol and iodine, dark malts, roast. Big sweet flavor with dark sugars, prominent alcohol/barrel character, understated roast. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Hot finish with more dark malts, dark chocolate, wood. Decent if a bit heavy handed.
