UPDATED: FEB 7, 2019 On Tap at BitterCreek Boise Dark brown pour with a thin dense tan head. Terrific blend of caramelized sugars, medium roast and touches of licorice and molasses. A bit boozy as the barrel aging character kicks in. Smooth and some lingering sweetness. Very good rami_pl (10198) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 27, 2018

Mauve-chestnut. Clear, I think. Light tan head to ring.
Oatmeal raisin cookie nose. Some alcohol, not aggressive, on the end. Lotta raisin, chocolate, caramel. Super soft and aged but no oxidation.
Raisin, plum, toffee. Alcohol picking up. Light roast on end. Not too sweet. Nuts, bourbon, vanilla. Soft, malty, great carbonation. Spicy rich. But whew is it strong. Good though.
Dark brown color. Light brown head. Tons of rolo candy, milk chocolate, vanilla oak, sherry in the nose. Light body, tons of oak, vanilla dark chocolate and bourbon. Very smooth. Well intrgrated and the flavors have meddle nicely after five year. Slight warming finish with vanilla going forever. HarvesterOfSorrow (2764) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2018
August 26, 2018 - bottle poured into bourbon county sniffers, shared on our anniversary. Dark pour with limited head. Aroma was bourbon, brandy, wood, sweetness, chocolate and dark fruit / raisin. Taste was really complex and well balanced. One sip and you notice the dark chocolate and bourbon, then the next one and you get a strong sweetness with the dark fruit. The wood and bourbon/brandy come out nicely in the finish.

The aroma is sweet and hearty, with loads of chocolate, prunes, raisins, toffee, caramel, buttermilk pie, and soft roasty notes. The alcohol is present, but not overpowering. Oak and vanilla make an appearance, as well. The palate is syrupy, with mild carbonation and a viscous body; the alcohol contributes a prickliness to give some texture. The taste is equal parts roasty bitter and malty/oaky sweet. Great beer, but as with some previous releases, I like some of the underlying beers more.
