3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the Ginger Man, NYC, 23/11/13.
Dark mahogony brown with a moderate light tan head that clears to a covering.
Nose is rich roast, subtle bourbob, dark toffee fudge, a thin chocolate vein resonates from atop the glass.
Taste comprises oaky bourbonics, rich chocolate laced fudge, dark malt, dark toffee, light boozedom, more bourbon than on the nose.
Medium bodied with bite, a little prickly on the carbonation front, a touch over carbed in this respect, bourbon booze in the finish.
Decent number, let down a little by being a touch overcarbonated. The booze is well integrated.

Poured a dark brown color from the bottle with aromas of dough, whisky, chocolate, and light vanilla. Flavors are the same, a very solid beer overall glad I got this beer as an extra.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a generous trader. Thanks man! Pours a murky dark brown with small yellowish khaki head. Aroma is nutty toffee, biscuit, vanilla, whiskey, chocolate, molasses. Very nice. Flavor is big nuttiness up front--pecans and hazelnuts--with a whiskey background, toffee, and a lingering pecan whiskey and dark fruit (almost a lingering Belgian dubbel flavor). Body is thin for a barrel aged brew but manages the barrel well. More than adequate carbonation, and a sipping beer for a nice Friday night. Not bad.

Bottle @ Matt’s house, courtesy of bushmat1. Pours a brown appearance with a cream colored head. Whiskey, dark fruity, vanilla, a bit citrusy, slightly strange aroma. Cherry, mild berry, whiskey, caramel, slightly tangy flavor. Not my favorite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Matt! Dark black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of nice whiskey, some slight oak, hints of earth, chocolate, some slight caramel. Taste is caramel, toffee, and not much else other than the whiskey, lots of whiskey and oak in there. Tastes good, but not a whole lot going on.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from Capones. Poured an almost black super dark brown bodyt with a smaller foamy tight dark beige head. Aroma is nice with notes of vanilla, bourbon, barrel, old chcolate muffin batter. Body is medium overall with rather lively carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor actually gets better with warmth. Notes of lighter bourbon, vanilla, wet wood, old chocolate, brown bread, alcohol. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is everything whiskey: vanilla, oak and molasses. Pours light brown with a small head. Taste is nice notes of bourbon: toffee, vanilla, and sugar but not much else. Not the most complex but truly delicious. For whiskey aged lovers only.
