4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Josh! Sunburst amber and copper with orange, completely opaque. Not much of a head, soapy white and quick to disperse to a broken collar. Aroma is huge & sweet. Rich chocolate cake drizzled with sweet vanilla morsels, some moderate caramel and toffee sweetness, a very light boozy aspect... Very delicate & dessert-like. Taste is sweet, but not cloying at all. Sweet milk chocolate & fudge cake, sticky vanilla, light toffee, caramel, mild bourbon undertaking but very manageable. Light oak, cocoa & vanilla bean finish. Very nice & delicate stuff here. Lots of people complain this is too sweet, boozy, messy, etc., but those are the same people who go nuts for Chocolate Rain & BB9K. Lolwut? I love vanilla, so maybe I’m overstating, but this beer was very enjoyable for me.

750, capped and waxed. Thanks, J! Pours a clear dark golden amber with minimal head and lace. Bright intense sweet heavy white chocolate nose, sticky thick body. Soft, sluggish carb. Heavy sweet mid palate. Long sticky thick chocolate finish.

pours a nice light tan color. Nose is incredible with notes of toasted chocolate. The taste is just unbelievably like white chocolate with some caramel and whiskey in the finish.The 14% alcohol is barely noticable. Wow. This beer tastes exactly how the name describes. Unreal!! it tastes and smells like WIlly Wonka’s factory. Just delicious. I have found my new favorite beer. Would buy a case and drink forever and ever!!!

Light brown with a small pale head. Aroma is white chocolate, custard, vanilla, play-doh, booze, apricot. Full bodied, syrupy mouthfeel, sweet and fruity with a little booze on the finish. Taste is vanilla custard, apricot, orange marmalade. Tasty but a little boozy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small off-white head, soon reduced to rim over ochre beer with lots of mini UFO’s in suspension. Vanilla, chocolate, leather. Smells sweet. Sweet; vanilla custard, rather than chocolate; faint sourish edge, old fortified wine, liqueurish and rather sharp. Not very big bodied, but quite slick and viscous, again like liqueur. To be honest, not at all my cup of t... chocolate.

Bottle, shared with my wife. Pours light amber with a lot of very tiny particulates in it. Small beige head that fizzes away pretty quickly and leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is vanilla, caramel, bourbon, cocoa, very desertlike. Flavor is the same, it really does have a white chocolate feel to it, sweet and decadent with bourbon and woody vanilla notes everywhere. Medium body, pretty hot, which is not surprising. Very nice beer, for the right time and place.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy yellow in color with a soft foam head that forms a ring in my glass. The aroma is coconut, oak, vanilla, mild sweet bourbon, and carmel malts. In taste I picked up on potent bourbon flavor, oak, mild carmel malts, wheat grains, and vanilla. The finish is of booze, wheat, oak, and vanilla. There is strong flavors found in this beverage and it effects my palate. Overall this was a good drink but it had a lot of characters at play here.

RBSG 2013. Considerable hops and dry malt. I taste the oak, which is strong as well as the sweet bourbon. An usual beer, almost like a bourbon aged ipa, at least to me.

Bottle shared by Kyle at my wedding, thanks! Pours a near clear deep gold with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice sweet cookie note with a good amount of caramel as well as underlying coconut, vanilla and some bourbon. Flavor starts with caramel and cookies and is supported by bourbon, honey and vanilla.

Bottle; Pours the color of melted caramels with virtually no head. Boozy aroma is akin to Schnapps; vanilla, caramel, cocoa, and butterscotch. Bourbon barrel presence is spot on. Really jives with the vanilla and cocoa. I keep thinking butterscotch, maybe it’s because of the color. Great sipper... damn, I could really love this if it came in nip bottles. Shared this with my parents over the holiday weekend; definitely a bottle to split 3 or 4 ways.
