pushkinwow (2716) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle from Ian at the 2015 Ottawa end-of-year gathering. Very dark mahogany with a very feint beige film. Aroma was overwhelmingly sweet with lots of vanilla, scotch, bourbon, plum, caramel, toffee and raisins. Moderate+ body and mild carbonation, very sweet and almost cloying, very boozy, made me feel slightly diabetic.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 750mL bottle, 47/246. Clear deep ruby with a half finger beige head, fading to a thick ring before long. Same toffee caramel nose as the regular version with a nice bourbon backbone. Flavor adds some dried cherries and raisins with plenty of bourbon and alcohol heat. Dry finish with a fair amount of booze, bitterness at a 3. Medium body with light prickly carbonation. Better than Id expected, but I like the regular version better. 7-3-8-4-13--3.6 Rerate, just released 2012 batch. Not all that bourbon or boozy, but most definitely present with a nice toasted coconut vanilla creme hazelnut thing going on. Good brown sugar caramel sweetness. 8-4-8-4-16--4.0

wedgie9 (2664) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours nearly opaque dark brown with an average tan head that slowly recedes to average, uneven lace. The nose is very sweet caramel, vanilla, maple, and toffee. The flavor has a bit more balanced dryness from some toasted bitterness, but dominated by vanilla, maple, caramel, and toffee. The body is full with just below average carbonation and a long vanilla and somewhat bitter toffee.

TXBadger (2658) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2014
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.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 4, 2009
Pours a cloudy brown mud, full sheet. Big bourbon, vanilla. And notes of choc. In the nose. Big bourbon notes valong with a thick chocolatey malt character and background booziness. Very nice and warming with sophisticated bourbon and malt and pretty agressive hopping.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Sweet bourbon aroma - more of a port character than anything else. Hazy bron color. A light bourbon character with some oak funk coming through on the finish. Mostly fruity malts in the flavor.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Geez, I barely remember tasting this one. Good thing I took notes at the tasting. Brown pour with slight red tint. Nice tan head. Caramel, some mild peat, bourbon on the nose as well as vanilla. Sweeter than the regular version, as is the taste. Good, but I prefer the non barrel-aged version.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour cloudy dark copper with moderate tan head. Nose sweet caramel, toffee, raisin, plum, and hint of barrel. Taste sweet malt up front quickly transition to spicy, slight booze, and plum, raisin. Finish with again slightly boozy and spicy. Thick mouth feel.

Bottle provided by Ed Roberts, you rock my friend. The aroma on this was pretty overwhelming. A lot of bourbon and hotness going on here. It smells a lot stronger then it actually this. The flavor is a mix between bourbon, malts and vanilla. Hangs very long on the palate. Could use some aging but still very good.
