Magnum bottle, shared by Brett. 1,000 made this year and i’m not surprised they sit on the shelves at 42$ for a bottle. pretty boring mild spice profile and the base beer itself is very bland.. needs more punch from the bourbon and it just doesnt get there.. needs more flavor, and more body.

Beerman6686 (4419) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2013
This one poured a hazy orange to brown color with a beige head. Aroma was bourbon, spices, caramel and dark fruit. Flavor was not much barrel, mainly caramel, light chocolate and some spices.

zach8270 (3502) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2013
(bottle - magnum - 2012 vintage) Muddy brown color with a tan head. Tons of spice and sweet bourbon in the aroma. Cinnamon and nutmeg dominate the flavor at the start but give way to the sweet wood and vanilla hints of the bourbon. The bourbon elevates the spice but not to an undrinkable level. Very smooth and warming.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2013
1 liter, over priced ($50) bottle. Deep brown with an off white head. Honey, spices, very light barrel aging noticed, and vanilla. Very drinkable for 10% and this one actually was better than I would have thought going in.

markwise (4501) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Magnum bottle courtesy of goryshkewych. Cheers, George! Pours a hazy brown with a white head. Nose is big caramel, spice, ginger, vanilla, and honey with wood and vanilla. Flavor is similar- huge caramel, big ginger, some spice, vanilla, and oak. Medium in body and a noticeable alcohol presence.

jsquire (3499) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Murky amber color with a small beige head out of the bottle. Strong spice and bourbon nose. Great warming bourbon sense to this beer. Cinnamon, nutmeg, bourbon and vanilla notes. Full flavored beer with a nice use of a barrel.
