Sarlacc83 (710) - Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle brought back from Wisconsin by my lovely wife. A: Solid mahogany with a firm fluffy off-white head. Lacing. N: Pecan, toffee, hint of bourbon, vanilla, and coconut. Dominated by sweet biscuit. Cocoa, roasted coffee beans, and hints of char. T: Nose is quite nice. Palate picks up light malt and light bitterness. Disappointing here. M: Quite watery. Light body. O: Not sure what the disconnect is between body and nose, but it’s not altogether enjoyable to drink from the bottle.

12 oz bottle shared by huhzubendah, thanks Matt! Pours a clear dark brown with light easily passing as ruby hues on the glass. White bubbles line the rim, head is nearly nonexistent. Aroma is caramel malt, light vanilla and toasted walnut. Flavor is sweet: classic brown ale, bourbon caramel, and sweet malts. Thin bodied, medium carbonation. Only 5.7%? This tastes like at least a 7.5%.

Huhzubendah (2496) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 13, 2014
The beer is a beautiful mahogany hue with tinged of russet and ruby. Small beige head. Aromas include oak, bourbon, wet wood, vanilla. Light sweetness with a gentle bourbon character and vanilla. Perhaps toasted almond cookies with a splash of chocolate and brown sugar. Thin body with fairly low carbonation. Lots of flavor packed into a <6% abv brew. Tasty.

ContemplateBeer (1528) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Aroma: Chocolate and almonds mingle with light toasted coconut, some vanilla. Appearance: Dark garnet brown with a foamy tan head that settles into a still skin. Flavor: Chocolate and nuts are more present up front with an undercurrent of the coconut, vanilla bourbon character, which grows a bit more toward the finish. Palate: Light-medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Quite liked this; the mixing of non-barrel and bourbon barrel allowed for the entire character of the beer to shine along with the barrel treatment.

Deep brown with reddish hints. Small tan head. Caramel, vanilla, some earthy undertones. Some bitter dark chocolate taste, finish is much sweeter. Medium-heavy body, alcohol is fairly upfront. Some acidity. Reasonably long finish, although the finish becomes slightly watery. Overall, quite good. Reasonably well balanced.

A nice barrel aged beer. Nice head did cause a ticking sensation. Barrel flavor but a bit thin. Enjoyable but average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fidelis83 (1932) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Medium brown pour with a one finger, soapy to creamy beige head. Aroma is chocolate, nutty notes, caramel, toffee and light woody bourbon. Flavor is pretty toffee heavy up front with some oaky vanilla coming in soon after then toasty chocolate, toasted nuts, nice deep cereal notes and earthy hops and a little booziness to the finish. Medium body with a creamy to oily entry, light, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation and an off dry finish with a slightly boozy, off dry finish with a light phenol pucker.

Light brown in color with a slight head. Served to me in a frosted glass. On the plus side, I can get nice draft beer in Terminal 2 of the MSP airport from Surdyk’s Flights. On the minus side A FUCKING FROSTED GLASS WTF?! SAVE THAT SHIT FOR THE MILLER LIGHT BULLSHIT! Ok now back to the beer. Nice malty nose. Slight bourbon flavor, really complementing the malt character and a hint of booze on the finish. Quite nice.
