Bottle 101 of 246 shared by daknole @ Hellbilly’s. THANKS DAK!!! Burnt caramel pour with a khaki head. Nose is mostly ash with lots of char and smoke included. Flavor shows some of the bourbon but also adds vanilla, peat, and dark fruit. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Thanks to beerlando for this brew
It pours dark, opaque brown with a touch of red highlights and has a thin yellow/brown head. Creamy on the tongue, it has a bit of a sticky taste with some nice maltiness. The barrel aging plays well in the background. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2009

Almost black pour. Small tan head. Plenty of lacing. Huge malty bourbony aroma. Taste is the same. Awesome malt and bourbon. Shag (2981) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 11, 2009
This poured a murky brown color with some molasses, peat, and toffee in the nose. The flavor is rather sweet and malty with some caramel, molasses, nutty flavors, and toffee. Some alcohol in the finish. Overall a nice beer

Bottle thanks to Eric. Pours black with tan head. Aroma of dark candy, peat, smoke and dark roasted grain. Flavor is fairly intense but balanced, malty, peat, light smoke, dark fruit, coffee, toffee, alcohol spice. Mouth feel is medium-heavy body with low-medium carbonation. Overall, solid brew!!

Pours a dark brown color with lightly tan colored head. Bourbon, caramel, vanilla, oak, and some dark fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with sweetness, and a bourbon warmth. Very complex. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Pours a dark amber/chestnut brown color with a 1.5 finger beige head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Streaks of spotty lacing left behind.
Nice barrel presence in the nose with dry oak, toasted coconut, vanilla and spicy bourbon. Doesn’t overpower the base beer allowing sweet and roasted malt notes to come through. Hints of caramel, toffee, hazelnut and chocolate. Slightly smokey but not acrid or burnt smelling. Smells great!
Medium bodied with a strong barrel character that adds another layer of flavor to the base beer. Some dry oak along with silky vanilla, toasted coconut and a delicious spicy bourbon character. Although the barrel flavors are strong, they are perfectly integrated into the flavor without overpowering the base beer. Lots of excellent bourbon flavor but barely any heat making it deceptively drinkable. Underneath the barrel, there is a nice combination of sweet and roasted malt notes. Slightly smokey with hints of dark chocolate, toffee, caramel and oatmeal lingering into a somewhat dry finish. Highly recommended!
