brokensail (9918) - 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.

drpimento (2098) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Fairly good despite what I think is a fault of under carbonation. Bottle opened with no indication of pressure. Poured at a good temperature with a smallish, tan, foamy, head that soon settled and no lace. Color is a nice clear garnet. Aroma is quite pungent of oak, ripe dark fruit, malt, cider. Flavor’s like nose, plus is super rich, with old brandy, old sherry, grape must, lots of intense flavors, especially oak, malt, and the dark ripe fruit. Body is very full, concentrated, thick, carbonation very soft. Finish is like flavor, of average length, boozy.

mcberko (5358) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out quite a bit of heat, wood, caramel and vanilla - doesn’t seem as sweet as regular Bois. Flavour is very woody, not a diabetes bomb like the regular Bois, with loads of booze, oak, and even a tiny tartness. A lot less sweet than the base beer, with shitloads of wood and a decent alcohol content. Not as sweet or diabetes promoting as the regular Bois, but not really any more complex or enjoyable.
