brokensail (11998) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Mahogany pour with a small khaki head. Strong alcohol and oak notes. Almost vinous with some grape, raisin, date, char, and tobacco notes. Nice sweetness and some alcohol. The flavor is a bit tannic and savory. Big oak, charred wood, and tannin character. Sweet bread, toffee, and caramel. Apple, date, and raisin fruitiness.

hopscotch (9816) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle... Pours clear and deeply copper with a tiny, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is a rich collage of caramel, oak, maple, and brown liquor. Full-bodied and syrupy with tingly carbonation. The flavor is boozy and malty - caramel, toffee and an unexpected hint of coffee. Warming, comforting, lightly acidic finish. It’s big and alcoholic, but consumed at the proper pace, it’s quite enjoyable. Don’t wash down a burger with or gulp it through a beer bong. Bottle supplied by biggsbowler!

Poured from a 750 ml Bois bottle. Aroma is fairly malty but is well balanced by quite a bit of dried dark fruits. Nice oak notes with almond and coconut. Lighter alcohol notes than in the other versions. Pours a murky reddish brown with a somewhat thin, dart tan head that quickly recedes to a thin film on the edges. No lacing and fairly long legs. Flavor is nice as well, but with too much oak in my opinion. Lots of malt character and lighter, dried dark fruit notes. Lighter alcohol notes than the other versions make this slightly more drinkable. Moderately strong fresh oak notes add hints of almond and vanilla, but also quite a bit of wood. I like that the wood seems to temper the sweet fruit and malt notes and add some moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium low carbonation. Low, but present astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a good beer and not as overly sweet as the other variants but the oak character is a bit too strong. I like that the alcohol character is lighter as well.

Garnet pour with a dense vanilla head. Aroma of raisins, figs, and bready malts. Taste is vinous, like a tawny port. Dark stone fruit and sourdough come through on the finish. Not bad.

fletchfighters (1173) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2014
750 ML bottle Deep brown color, light tan head. ABV legs, strips of lacing Nose is vanilla, coconut, date, molasses, brown sugar, and subtle apple. Taste is vanilla, coconut, oak, apple, date, caramel, molasses, and booze. Big bodied, a little too hot and boozy right now. Low carbonation and a little too much fresh oak

Beerman6686 (4832) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2014
This poured a medium brown with a tiny beige head. Aroma was of caramel, dark fruit, booze, and oak. Flavor similar, sweet but not sickening, big showcase of complex.malts and oak.

rxeight (1605) - Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Pour from a 750 at FOBAB. Labeled Sucre new oak. Has quite a lot of apple wood taste to it. Sweet but not bitter old ale/barleywine. Strong but not boozy. I actually found this more interesting than the rum, bourbon or whatever else ive had because the spirit version really has too much booze covering up the rather tasty base beer that is underneath.

GABF 2014. Deep brown. Nose is hot booze, with light barrel spice. Full bodied rich old ale with some leather, light spice, tobacco. Massive beer, but too much heat and sweetness. Not worth the price of admission but otherwise good. Sure some love this.
