Aroma is fig, raisin and cocoa. Black pour with thin ring of white head. Prune juice flavor. Boozy. Whiskey and Carmel notes. Massive flavor. Makes ya shake your head. Had this as part of a draft flight at Jerrys in Andersonville.

Cybercat (5239) - Georgia, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Pours opaque chocolate brown with a thin buff head. Aroma has caramel and - surprise! - bourbon-soaked wood notes. Flavor has a fierce alcohol bite that nevertheless lets through arty, caramel, and bourbon tones. Watch out, this is for the bold and the brave ONLY! Viscous texture has some good fizz. A killer!

tmoreau (3843) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2016
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served showing a deepest mahogany, almost black hue, with a presentable layer of brownish, reddish, tan head foam that reduced expeditiously to a more lasting ring & film, and left spots & strands of lacing on the glass. The nose was chocolate, dark fruit as prune, sweetness, caramel, treacle, and barrel induced vanilla. Full bodied, with low carbonation, the taste started dry, yet sweet, with similar notes as the aroma, plus an added, dark fruit note as concord grape, with smooth, lingering booze and warmth. Slowly savored and wasnt disappointed.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2013
12 oz bottle. Deep brown with sparse froth that rises with a swirl. Nose is bourbon and honey with a touch of grass. Meadlike in its sweetness. Medium body with a tang, lightly sticky. Taste is apple, caramel, grass, banana and bourbon. Comes off a little washed out; sneaky alcohol.

umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark mahogany with almost no head. Aromas are bourbon, cherries, toffee, caramel, and vanilla. Taste is sweet caramel and bourbon up front and finishes with toffee and vanilla. Medium body, oily and sticky. Very little alcohol burn. The barrel aging really improved this beer. I really enjoyed this sipper.

50belair (3467) - Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle. Clear light brown/amber pour with a fleeting white head. Caramel aromas. Some bitterness, mild booze, and muted caramel notes. Bland and boring with a below average mouthfeel and body.

Silphium (3192) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle. Ruddy orange-brown body, thin off-white head. Hot nose with notes of bourbon, oak, raisin, and caramel; alcohol prevalent. Oaky, soft body with layers of caramel, toast, and bread, finishing with warming alcohol notes. Yum.

jeremytoni (3029) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2013
From a bottle poured a dark brown/black color with very little head. Strong sweet malty flavor with a lasting finish.

Chudwick (2919) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JAN 19, 2014
One year old 12oz bottle shared by the motorcycle-loving AndyReynolds - nose is wood, booze and bourbon. Sip adds chocolate (malt) and brown sugar. Sweet. Big body. A sipper.

Bottle sampled at a tasting. From notes. Vanilla, oak, bourbon, dark fruits and chocolate. Awesome.
