2011 vintage I had this one last year and was amazing another year in the cellar didnít help. Looks like it peaked at 4 years. Pours out a amber topped with a sand head. nose is caramel vanilla light bourbon barrel notes. Taste is starting to feel age a little cardboard but still with the sweet caramel malt and bourbon.

2011 vintage provided by buckeyeboy... Cool to see one of these again.. Thanks Jeremy!!
pretty thin ... lite caramel and bunches of a mash-up of odd wood/whiskey/ and bits of dried fruit..
9.4% isnít readily available, but the overall brew is thin like a bigger amber that has some obvious barrel work... caramel and minor pick-up toasty malts.. I wish the hops had any play at all... really.. I wish anything with depth played ball tonight.... just nothing except the EtOH to really write home about.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
2012 bottle, clear amber with ruby hues, just a trace of a beige head. Very sweet with Vanilla and Oak, hints of whiskey & cherries. Quite sweet, still beer with little carbonation. Very warm, alcohol is up front, not hidden. Slick oily feel. A bit of bitterness in the aftertaste but not nearly enough to balance the syrupy sweetness. Getting through this bottle alone will be a challenge.

650 ml bottle thanks to Adrien. 2013. Slight oxidation marks on the inside of cap. Deep Amber color, carbonation is ok. Aroma is light oak, mild dark fruits and slight oxidation.
The flavor is faded. Weak bourbon, lots of oak upfront. The base is dark fruits and English malts. Body is fuller with a nice smoker carbonation level. Overall for the age itís ok.

This is for í12. Poured into snifter - clear dark orange with thick light tan head. Aroma - lots of bourbon note on nose, some dark fruits underneath. Light oak with bourbon notes on palate predominate, but finish is a bit earthy hoppy with some pine/resin.
