Shag (2941) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2006
A brown appearance with virtualy no head. The aroma is filled with chocolate and whiskey. The flavor was somewhat sour and nutty with some chocoate, raisins, vanilla, and of course a lot of whiskey showing up. Pretty awesome, thanks JohnC.

Palme (4537) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 28, 2017
0.75l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. Been looking forward to this one. It pours a deep dark brown, near black body in the glass and it has a medium sized slowly sidesticking an islandy beige head. Lovely nose. Woody and vanilla infused for sure. I get chocolate, some dark sweetness soaked rum raisins. Malt spicy drops. Cinnamon spicy almost and traces of whisky. Smells really good. It tastes quite good, I have to say. More woody and vanilla infused in the taste actually. Feels thick and oily on the mouthfeel and the about average on the carbonation. A little chocolate with dark caramel and dry licorice. Lots of flavor. A really good one. 18.02.2016

neongolden (1452) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2017
(On tap @ Anvil and Stave, Apr 5/17) Pours a clear dark red brown, with a fine but decent white head and spotty lace. Aroma of crisp, mineral, toffee, raisin, vanilla, wood. Flavour is surprisingly light caramel, some dried pale fruit, oak, vanilla, some boozy bourbon. Body is kind of light and mineral. Boozy. Soft carb. Huh. I expected substantially more richness from the body than was present here. While that crisp feel is interesting, it also seemed to struggle to backstop the barrel character.

Cybercat (5565) - Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2017
Pours opaque chocolate with a decent buff head. Aroma delivers bourbon, roast malt and caramel tones. Flavor nicely echoes the aroma, fairly sweet but not cloying. Mouthfeel features good body and jazzy fizz. More than wee!

Gerbeer (3539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2017
750 ml bottle. 2015 vintage. Aromas of bourbon, raisins, a little cola, and sweet roasted malts. Flavors of dark caramel, bourbon, oak, raisins and lots of malts. Much lighter than the barrelled stout and therefore seems more boozy, but still very nice. Doesnt need anymore aging IMHO.

fiery_1 (803) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2017
750ml bottle @ Alexs(Serguys Birthday). Pours a mostly opaque brown colour with a small beige head. Nose is huge, rich, and malty... lots of bourbon and oak. Flavour is a spicey-esque profile that derives from the bourbon heat and oak while the sweetness tames it.

Ferris (14387) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2017
Bottle - Vintage 2015 - Crazy bourbon hot woody notes. Deep dark brown with a small light brown head. Big dark toffee notes and tons of bourbon notes. A bit too big and boozy notes.

beerplace (1463) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2017
750ml bottle (thx, Robert G.!) at Alexs in honor of my birthday and CPA PREP finish. Vintage 2015. Pours a dark brown with beige head. Aroma is sweet, dark fruits, bourbon, woody, and booziness. Taste is chocolate, oily, still hot, dark fruits, slightly buttery, bourbon. Despite it is still boozy, I love it and it is a very nice sipper.

Bottle shared, 2012 vintage. Pours thick dark brown with a small offwhite head. Aromas of heavy bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits, licorice, light oxidization, chocolate, malt. Taste is malty, vanilla, dark fruits, toffee, butterscotch, huge caramel, porty notes, subtle bitter malty notes.

Good grief this was good. Burnt bread pudding with caramel and molasses touch with oak and bourbon. Nice dark caramel color with a full and smooth palate. Near perfect.

yourilevesque (1762) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2017
Vintage 2012, gracieuset de Yannick. Merci lami! Clairement le meilleur scotch ale que jai bu de ma vie. Lquilibre est parfait: ni trop sucre, ni trop sirupeuse, ni trop alcoolise. Toute en finesse, le bourbon nest pas trop agressif, mme au contraire. Ce dernier a je crois aminci cette bire dont la base est plutt lourde pour moi. Effervescence parfaite et rondeur impeccable. Saveurs de fruits noirs, de caramel, de douce mlasse. Longue en bouche sans jamais coeurer, un grand coup de coeur pour moi que cette bire qui a dj 5 ans.
