4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Yes! Reddish brown with thin tan head. Aroma is a bourbon wallop with some caramel. Flavor is orgasmic caramel toffee sweetness blended with boozy bourbon, oak. The bourbon dominates the sweetness for the malt, making it more refreshing than chewy. medium-heavy on the palate, slightly hot, but not as much as expected for the abv. So good, and dangerous! Worth the 30$ when split between friends.

This is one you want to crack over dessert with about 8-10 people. Extreme sugar and fruit flavor. Don’t get me wrong, I actually loved this, but I’m not sure I’d want to have more 6oz max in a sitting.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle dipped in some serious gold wax. Had a hard time getting it open haha. Soon as the seal breaks I get an amazing scent of bourbon. Pours a muddy brownish ruby color, one finger of khaki head that diminished quickly. Nice alcohol legs and beautiful in the glass. So the aroma, fuck. Rich, thick, god damn nostril overload. Smooth buttery bourbon and toasted oak. Toffee, caramel, vanilla, burnt sugar, a little chocolate and immense rum raisins. The smell is so complex, ridiculously huge beer. I’ve never smelled anything like it. Upfront flavors of toasted vanilla oak, great barrel character. Smooth toffee bourbon and caramelly creamy malts. Sweet, syrupy, boldness. Very slight hop profile on the after taste. Slick and subtly carbonated mouthfeel. Syrupy, chewy, excellent. Totally unique and unforgettable beer, worth every dollar and it really is an experience. I’ve never had anything like it and I doubt I ever will. Definitely a must try.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a muddy brown. Super sweet nose of heavy bourbon, caramel syrup, vanilla, and a touch of treacle tart. Sweet bourbon forward but not too boozy, followed by a blend of figs, oak, toffee, brown sugar, and dates; a slight bitter sourness emerges as the beer warms before quickly giving way to sweetness again. Very soft, smooth palate with a sweet finish that goes on for days. This has matured nicely in the short time since its release.

Black pour. Sizable khaki head that falls quickly and does not leave lacing. Peppery malt aroma. Dark, dried fruits - raisins and figs. Vanilla notes. Taste is like caramel topped vanilla ice cream. Holy crap, it’s phenomenal. A very, very slight alcohol warmth mixed with the sweet syrup. Slightly too sweet, but the flavors more than make up for it. This is a fantastic beer.

Nice reddish brown color with a quick dissolving white head. Scent is some molasses, dried plums, barrel notes and a bit of alcohol. Taste is sweet caramel and molasses and some raisins, outstanding beer.

Sample pour for a bomber bottle. Huge hop and fruit aroma, which leads me to think this is an American Old Ale. I didn’t pick up on the malts as much in the aroma. Appearance is a foggy orange and heavy amounts of foam on top. Taste was more apparently malted, but the hop side won out and dominated the flavor profile. Sweet, slightly boozy, crisp and warm. Palate was fizzed and medium bodied. Overall a fantastic beer, easy drinking and bold at the same time. It lives up to the hype that you hope for in a rare and highly sought after selection

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 Couleur bouetteuse, pas la plus sexy. Caramel, vanille, noisettes, bourbon, fruits foncés, une bonne claque d’éthanol, surtout en arôme. Splendide corpulence! Les sucres sont multiples, profonde complexité.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Big thanks to the Boise crew. Notes of bourbon, earthy, hot alcohol, malty, caramel. Very big and rich.
