Huge bourbon caramel toffee nose right when you open the bottle. Light tan head on top of a dark brown beer. Wonderful taste, sweet, caramel, brown sugar abound. Lots of heat too, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Deep marbled brown. Smells of sugar, caramel, and butterscotch. Sweet malts with a butterscotch bite. Big body.

That bl********dy wax!!! WHY? Sampled as Fruet Small receding yellow-cream head over totally hazy dark reddish-brown beer. Vinous nose, Bourbon, oakwood, vanilla. Chocolate and Bourbon, with a sharp alcoholic, nippy, not-quite-acidic finish, bit lactic acid-like. Belgian chocolates liquified. Without htis acidic touch, it would be outspokenly sweet. Very viscous, fiery alcoholheat, rich MF. Hot stuff...

750ml bottle, shared by DanielCoor. Hazy, dark brown / red color. Thin khaki head, few bits of lace. Awesome vanilla, dark fruit, bourbon barrely nose. Lightly spicy, some tannin. Smooth, lighter, kind of creamy carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Really big body. Dark fruit, raspberry, blackberries, caramel malt, light spice. Vanilla, spice. Nice level of alcohol warmth, moderate bitter, lighter sweet taste. Awesome, big beer.

Aroma is chocolate and bourbon, this tastes like a boozy chocolate covered cherry.

Pours reddish brown and murky with a creamy beige head that settles down to a ring quickly. Aroma is dried fruits and booze: dark cherry, raisin, and a hint of anise. Flavor is sweet and boozy warm and makes me want to linger long at the cup. Medium body, nice carbonation. Beautiful brew! Sultry, sexy, smooth.

Wow!!!!. The nose starts with malty raisin aromas. Then the first sip is like no other. The taste complements the nose, which is hard to find. Great maltiness with tons of fruit, figs, raisins and caramel. The use of barrels adds very nice complexity.

Trying to rate a beer I didn't particularly like is difficult, but here goes... The Bruery certainly achieved their purpose of making a BIG complex beer. Sweet boozy aromas and taste are somewhat overwhelming. This is a beer for sipping and contemplation.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by DanielCoor). Looks good for the style; a murky orangish brown with thin beige lacing. Smells sweet, malty, and boozy. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer!

Pours a rich red amber with Carmel head. Has a velvety mouthfeel and a creaminess with a sharp boozy finish. Carmel and sweet notes prevail.
