Congrats with 500 ratings E! Glad to get this one taste together. Very dark brown beer with a small head, maybe could be some bigger. Very sweet, maybe just over the top, and a bit complex beer. Lovely how the wood and booze gets slightly trough but don’t kick in to hard. Some vanilla and caramel gets trough and gives this the sweet kick at the start, but you get used to that kick.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with medium beige head that lasts awhile. The aroma is dark fruits, vanilla, and oak. Thin mouthfeel with sweet malt and vanilla flavor with light booze in the finish. Hides alcohol well, really enjoyed this one.

Pours dark brownish red with a white head that fades to a ring. Aroma is bourbon, figs, dried fruits, vanilla, and oak. Taste is exquisite with oak, vanilla, bourbon, brown sugar, dates, cinnamon, and toffee sweetness. The alcohol is well hidden. Really delicious.

Medium hazy brown with a quickly dying foam. Love the aroma! Golden Graham cereal, brown sugar, bourbon, caramel, and heavy cream. Full and warm from the alcohol. Oak and bourbon flavors are rich with molasses, toffee, and dark fruits. Finish is deliciously sweet and fruity. Loved every version of this.
