Bottle, a pain in the butt to break thru all the wax, but a celebration of my last day in uniform. Hope it’s worth the $30 I paid for it. Rich brown color. Thin, if any head at all. Super rich aroma of cooked brown sugar and baked raisins. This drinks with a full-on, rich liqueur character ... burningly warm, full of raisin, date, and baked plum. Little hint of wild yeast is weaved in. If you like "big" beers, this is as big as they come. I should’ve started the night with this, not ended it. One word: huge. (#5601, 8/1/2014)

On tap. Pours a deep burgundy with no head. Aroma is as advertised--sugar and molasses. Taste is awesome. Complex with different sugars, molasses, and carmelized sugar. What an awesome beer!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Frisco Tap House & Brewery in Columbia, MD.
Opaque, black-brown with a tiny off-white head and nice legs, but only fair lacing.
Aroma of scotch, oak, toffee, alcohol and brown sugar.
Taste of bourbon, toffee, oak, alcohol, brown sugar and raisins.
Medium/full body and medium/low carbonization.
A cross between beer and carbonated whiskey. OK, that doesn't sound so good. This beer was different, but delicious.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle enjoyed at the Old Stagecoach Inn in Waterbury, VT. The pour is dark golden brown with aromas of malt, oak and bourbon. Flavors are so layered with dark fruits, molasses, oak, bourbon, vanilla and brown sugar. Incredibly big and complex. A remarkable beer that will blossom with age.

800 yen for 120ml from a bottle at the Hanshin Seed Event. Bourbon version I believe. Dark brown, barrel oakiness in the nose. The taste is sweet brown sugar, oak, boozy but damn good. A flavorful surprise.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma of intense molasses, sticky malts, raisins, roasted amber malts, big alcohol on the nose, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Very darkened plum/magenta appearance and big alcohol legs. Big sticky malt sweetness overwhelms the palate. Huge, complex notes of cinnamon, roasted malts, raisins, plums, maple syrup, molasses, dark fruits, and toffee. Finish is massive with immense bourbon burn (like taking a shot) and big barrel notes. Overall, The Bruery knocks another homerun out of the park. Huge sticky, slick molasses/malt overtones ending with insane booziness. A+ rating.
