Sampled from bottle @ WWT III. Huge thanks to MrHangover!! Bonus points for the music! Very dark brown to black colored beer with a small light brown head. Aroma of malts, clearly barrel aged, some alcohol, wood. Taste malts, roasted malts, dark malts, wood, alcohol, some bitter. Full body, perfect carbonation. Very very nice beer indeed.

Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours very dark with a medium dark tan head. Aroma of mixed dark fruit, wine, treacle and possibly some oak. Near full bodied. Flavor is chocolate, treacle, bourbon/vanilla, oak, red wine and so very much more. The heat is noticeable but not bothersome. I think the rye is detectable. It’s very tasty stuff.

Bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours dirty dark brown with a small tan head. The nose is rich, dried fruits, toffee, vanilla, jammy, oily wood and roasty brown sugar. The taste is rich, roasty, wood, leather, vanilla, boozy, toffee, bourbon, earth, varnish and dried fruits, with a smooth, toffee finish. Fullish body and fine carbonation. Great balance and very enjoyable. Nice depth. Ratman197 (14978) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2013

Dark brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma and flavour of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, oak, bourbon and dark dried fruit. Tmoney99 (14632) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop, toasted malt and dark bourbon wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy bourbon bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer but not now great.
