Bottle @CBC13. Deep mahogany with tan head. Nose is rich and deep with toffee, molasses and chocolate. Taste is fruity and complex, roasted notes. Finish is very boozy thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
(Draught) very deep, very rich ruby/espresso color, ring of tan bubbles. Nose of rich caramel, cream, bourbon, light vanilla, complex as hell. Taste, for a very young 13% barrel aged beer, is exceptionally smooth. Taste has notes of caramel, light pine hops, vanilla, lightly roasty, creamy, brown sugar, tons of things going on in this one, chocolaty as well. Medium bodied, complex linger also.

Bottle at the Moth. Dark brown to black with a brown head. The aroma is very complex. I get some huge bourbon, oak and maple notes, as well as a little bit of anise. The flavor is equally impressive. The charred oak and bourbon notes really come through strongly. There is also some vanilla and maple, as well as some roasted malt and brown sugar. Wow. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really glad I got to try this one. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2014
sweeter than id except, which hurt its points a little. Awesome barrel aging however, tons of nuances and subtle flavors. leather, molasses, oak, vanilla, cocoa, etc.. all the usual suspects. Marheb (6037) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Extrêmement bien balancé malgré la complexité qui se s’étend d’une gorgée à l’autre. Elle possède beaucoup d’avoine dans le corps mais je n’ai pas pris de notes sur le contenu des saveurs...j’y reviendrai si 2e dégustation il y a.

Pours dark mahogany into a tulip. Tan head with little retention recedes leaving no lacing. Vanilla, oak, pit fruit and chocolate aromas. Thin with hot chocolate, pit fruit and vanilla upfront turning to bitter espresso in the lasting finish. skortila (5970) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Bottled @ Zeebra #2. Sampled 5cl. The aroma is a bit weak, but putting the nose a bit more in and over the glass results in tones of raisin, grape, wine, bourbon, different fruits. Brown coloured beer with a very thin head. The taste is quite on the bourbon side, has sherry and a rather dry finish. Quite thin. It is nice to taste such a ridiculous blend, but it remains just that; a ridiculous blend. No balance, too thin. Bit a waste of all these ingredients, barrels, effort, etc. But to end positive, the aroma is quite nice. :-) snoworsummer (5961) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Draft. Pours almost opaque almost black. Tastes very sweet and raisiny, like grape nuts, molasses, toffee, dates. Medium body and carbonation. Smells like light raisins and caramel. JulienHuxley (5909) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle shared. Deep red black pour with white head. Aroma is really rich, nice toasty notes, super fruity, boozy, cherries. Taste is rich, roasty, a bit mineral, fruity, boozy finish. Palate is full bodied, hot, with good carbonation. hayduke (5619) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 16, 2012
From a bottle obtained from THE LOCAL Beer Bar in Eureka, CA. Poured a near black with a medium size and very thick dark tan head and sticky lacing. Nose of ripe dark fruit, chocolate and oak aromas. Full body. Very rich and creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is so very rich with bourbon and wine barrels, vanilla, and and lots of ripe fruit. The alcohol shows, but seems jus right in a beer this rich. Rye shows in the very delicoous finish. Really an amazing beer.
