BREWMUSKCLES (3071) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2019 just a well rounded beautiful brew. Aged and oaked with so many usuals and that tobacco chew and hit. Great and hard to see these days.

mR_fr0g (21426) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2019
Keg at the Beavertown Extravaganza, day one, 08/09/17. A hazed deep orange , amber coloured pour with an off white head. Aroma is nice semi sweet layered malts, caramel toffee, burnt sugars. Flavour is composed of rounded sweet malts, toffee, burnt sugars, light wood, caramel and toffee. Palarte is sweet and sticky, low to moderate carbonation. Good.

beerplace (5487) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2019
UPDATED: APR 6, 2019 355ml bottle at Alex's. Appearance: a bit hazy copper with a tan head Aroma: a bit oxidized, dark fruits, sweet, caramel, vanilla Taste: similar, quite complex, not over sweet Overall: nice one

NikkTwist (4782) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2019 Draft at Tria Taproom. Having following the original Fred. Both look similar (cloudy dark gold) but this one has no head. Big booze in the aroma. Taste follows. The Bourbon smoothes out the small hop bite of the original and darkly sweetens the finish. Feels more about the barrel than its namesake. Less complex. Still very easy drinking for such a high ABV.

fiery1 (3787) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2018 355ml bottle @ the source. 2008 Vintage, 10 years old. Pours an mildly clear amber brown colour with no head. Nose is candied sugar, wood notes, leather, and caramel malt. Flavour has lots of wood upfront, sweet caramel, rich toasted malt, raisins, and a touch of cardboard. Medium bodied, no carbonation, and a moderate to mild sweetness, rich, smooth, and complex in flavour. Delicious.

weihenweizen (5960) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2018 Refrigerated 12 oz. 2014 brown bottle from BuckeyeBoy poured into a glass. Clear amber with small white head. Aroma is caramel, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is caramel malt and oak. I prefer.

tomer (5266) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 1, 2018
Bottle at Craigs, many thanks, almost no head, clear very deep brown color, aroma of soy, citrus, apricot and brown sugar, shrubby flavor with lots of fruits and hints of alcohol, strawberries, brown bread and orange marmalade and a whiff of brown sugar and butter. Very good and really enjoyable.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2018 Draft at the Portland brewery. Dark golden and clear, full bodied almost syrupy. Cognac and wood aroma, sweet caramel taste. Wow.

Bottle form the dregs run, cheers Craig. Pours dark golden with a thin white head. Aromas of wood, booze, leather, dark sugar. Taste is boozy, more oak and vanilla. Sticky finish.
