hopscotch (9375) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle… Pours hazy and very dark (a glimpse of burnt orange when held up to light) with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Excellent retention. The rich aroma is a mélange of coconut, vanilla, sourmash, caramel, oak and toffee. Medium to full-bodied with very tingly carbonation. The flavor is earthy and woody accompanied by caramel, pralines, sourmash warmth and light acidity. Lengthy, caramely, buttery, drying finish. Thanks to corby112 for hooking me up!

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2008
750ml bottle. Poured a medium to deeper mahogany color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, wood, peat, earthy, some smoke and some nuts. Wow, this one smelled great. Tastes of caramel, vanilla, bourbon, wood, nuts, raisins, and a light earthiness. Sweet but no where near cloying. The barrel aging was very nicely done and I’m glad I have few more of these!

DocLock (8001) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark brown with off-khaki head. Nose is malty, earthy, dark and figgy fruity, with flavors of earthy malty, figgy brown sugary fruit, some fine tobacco, oaky whiskey, and prunes. Does get a bit hot late in spite of the low ABV, but I found this to be very complex and enjoyable.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Dark brown, deep caramel hues, large foamy light beige head, nice lacing.   Lovely bourbon, oak, and vanilla on the nose.   Hard to tell if its a Scotch Ale, Barley Wine, Doppelbock or something else as the barrel aging has been fairly strong on this one.   Somewhat peaty on the tongue.   All of the standard bourbon, oak, and vanilla notes as well.   Not as strong on the tongue as on the nose.   Picking up a little bit of campfire or charred wood.   Minor, but its there.   Finishes peaty, stronger Scotch Ale than at the start.   Lingering barrel aged notes.   A little spritzy on the tongue.   Clean, enjoyable.   Thanks to hopdog for the bottle!

750 ml bottle opened after a house cleaning. Courtesy of TheEpeeist. Pours a well carbonated dark brown, opaque, perhaps some lighter edges, a loose bubbled moderate sized tannish head, laces well and stays decent sized. Aromas are a big dose of Bourbon, warm heat, wet oak and vanilla, toffee and caramel, toast, light peaty smoke, sweet biscuits, toast. Nice, rich, a bit heavy on the barrel, but so far so good. Initial is medium bodied, pretty barrel thinned, warming bourbon and wet oak, vanilla, sweet toffee and caramel, biscuits and toast, a decent toastiness, light smoke grows on the palate. Warmth, heat grows. A touch of dark dried fruit, faint, the sweetness and toast take hold though, with pretty strong barrel element. Some flourishes of dark bakers chocolate move in, decent bitterness. Finish is quite nice, bitter and bourbon, sweetness. This really is quite nice, grows on me, only qualm might be it being a bit too barreled (or rather, thinned by said barrel).
