Leighton (14389) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle shared late night in the hotel lobby during RBWG 2015. Pours Clear amber with a bubbly tan head. Pungent caramel and vanilla on the nose. Big sweet flavor with more caramel, tannic dryness, brown sugar. Full bodied, chewy, with fine carbonation. Warm and sticky on the finish, caramel, toasted grains. Not bad.

hopscotch (10133) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and dark copper with a small, creamy, white head. The bouquet is a luxuriant intermingling of vanilla, caramel, toffee and bourbon. Medium to full-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and laid-back carbonation. The flavor is of sweet caramel and bourbon up front, then tannic bitterness on the backside. Finishes hearty and bitter-sweet.

DrSilverworm (8698) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Tasted during RBWG post-grand tasting shit-show hotel-tasting. Hazy red orange amber color. Thin ring of head. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Caramel malt, dark fruit. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Some heat. Quite some heat, actually. Drinks like 14%+. I wonder what the actual ABV of this is. I’d respect it more if I knew this was 16% or so. But definitely some heat here, without a tangible reason.

JorisPPattyn (8570) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2013
Colour as old Armagnac, and not more head. Rosewater and booze exploding on opening. Not very refined aromas, really - cognac, indeed. Sweet, but not cloying; but again very much rosewater-like, on bitter wood, bitter herbs and tons of sugars. Nutty (but I couldn’t tell pecan). Warming up, it acquires more balance. Lots of alcoholheat, well-bodied, and alcoholic-slick rather than viscous. Good, if not refined Barley wine. Heated!

Ferris (8103) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle - Sweet caramel an bourbon notes. Cloudy copper with a small beige head. Caramel, bourbon, cherry and Woody booze. I think a bit more age would be better.

Big thanks to dak for sharing this. It pours with a clear deep copper body and thin gold edges while supporting a tiny off white head. The aroma has musty sweet dark fruity esters like prunes, raisins, blueberries and plum juice as well as sticky pine hops. The taste is yummy with prunes and raisins soaked in sticky pine sap nuanced molasses. Behind those notes I get a modestly thick layer of smooth sweet bourbon and coconut. This has a terrific balance between hops, dark fruity esters and barrel notes, wow!
