brokensail (11600) - 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.

budznsudz (581) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2014
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 (1136) - 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

crossovert (7921) - Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2014
750ml bottle. Big booze bomb, the american oak one adds i mean the most subtle extra hints of vanilla to htis beer.

Beerman6686 (4710) - 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 (1523) - 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.

wchesser (1245) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2014
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.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle at Jester King. Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has a nice bit of oak to it as well as some brown sugar and vanilla. The flavor is fairly boozy. I get some big, fresh oak notes as well as some molasses and vanilla. There is also a bit malt character with some toffee and caramel character. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

blipp (6358) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Draft at Ginger Man. Pours amber with an off white head. Oaky base, sweet malts, rich toasted bready notes, lighter dark fruity sweetness, and a sweet oaky and malty finish. The oak kind of dominates, but there’s still quite a bit of sweetness that comes through. Pretty good.
