KansaiBeerLvrs (5387) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 19, 2017
Bottle shared by KL. Clear orange-amber in color with a burning heat even in the aroma. It was medium bodied and was a beer where the taste was sweet bourbon and maple. Tasty but could have been aged even longer to drop some of the booziness out.

KyotoLefty (10718) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 18, 2017
Bottle from Fuiljin. Carmel, bourbon, vanilla, peaches, orange, butterscotch. Rich, nice toffee flavor, sweet, light barrel, peppery, spicy finish. Very nice and hides the booze well.

Murky brown pour, no head, no lacing. Plus, brown sugar, lighter Bourbon notes in the smell and taste, light oak. Medium body, virtually still.

330ml bottle from Duffman, joint trade with minutemat and myself, cheers Duffman. Shared with Mat on 20th March 2017. Slight haze to the amber/brown body, the head a wispy, light tanned affair. Richness, booziness and singed sugars all came to mind as I smelled and sipped this very pleasant beer. Bourbon flavours creep up on you and the alcohol level seems to rise because of it.

minutemat (6122) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2017
330ml bottle from trade with Duffman, many thanks! Shared with Blackhaddock. Pours a deep amber, thin tan head. Aroma is kinda sweet, light bourbon, faint sour. Taste is quite gentle, moderately rich, not too sweet, good melding of caramel and bourbon flavours. Enjoyable and not as intense as others of its ilk.

Alpha10 (839) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017
2017/02/01 - Pours a hazy amber brown colour with a this, soapy, cream coloured head that quickly dissipates and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is sweet toffee, brown sugar, lots of dried dark fruit (raisins, figs, prunes), with light oaky vanilla, bourbon and bready yeast. Taste is more raisins and figs, brown sugar, sweet toffee, clove, bready yeast, oaky vanilla and bourbon. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with smooth carbonation and a moderately sweet, dry, warming finish. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is caramel, toffee, fig, roasted malts and some sweet bourbon on the tip. Taste is rich sweet malts, caramel, toffee and tea leaves. Slight clove on the tip and a hint of alcohol. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.
