Bottle at RBGT. Pours dark brown, no head. Aroma is strong bourbon barrel, vanilla and booze. Body is heavy, with a boozy bourbon barrel, sweet, yet having a rather crisp carbonation. Lingering caramel finish.

Dark brown with a minimal tan head. Aroma is malty, slight vinous and boozy with caramel, bourbon, vanilla, milk chocolate, dried fruits, warming alcohol, burnt wood and a touch of mint.
Taste is sweet, slight boozy and light bitter. Finish is sweet toffee, burnt sugars, some warming alcohol, light spicy, light bitter roasted notes with burnt wood. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation.
Past its prime but still good.
Bottle courtesy of Hackobock. Pours tiny hazy deep chestnut brown with a small frothy and bubbly beige head that leaves some sparse spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty, nutty and slightly fruity with caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, raisins in rum, plums in brandy, roasted coconut, brazil nuts, leather, sour cherries and bourbon alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and nutty. Mouthfeel is soft, round, velvety, tiny astringent, slightly boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with dusty nutty caramel and toffee malts, dark fruits in liquor and woody tannins. Oxidation is prominent and has reached the point where it doesn’t add only ruin the beer. Still, it’s not completely lost on us and is still pretty damn tasty.
