fidelis83 (2383) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Clear deep copper to mahogany pour with a two finger, creamy, slightly sudsy head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, lots of mellow vanilla, oak, a hint of sweet wood smoke, sweet juicy citrus and hints of spicy hops. Flavor is bourbon barrel, toasty vanilla, oak (with more noticeable char than the aroma), a hint of anise, lots of caramel, nutty toffee, deep citrusy notes, a hint of charred citrus and light, sweet tree fruit. Medium body, creamy entry; medium, almost spritzy carbonation, off dry, kinda chewy, slightly juicy finish, with just a hint of alcohol warmth and slickness. Really damn tasty, possibly dangerous in the wrong situation, way too drinkable, smooth and oddly refreshing for 12.4%, blackout juice.

Pours a light orange, clear, heady cream, lacey. Malt bourbon and somewhat unidentifiable hops. Woody vanilla. Same in taste, boozy coconut vanilla, bit of cherry wood boourbon. Booze in finish. Freaking 12.4%. Crazy drinkable with a boozy kick.

SG111 (1671) - New York, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Bottled at Clubhouse BFD event. 2013 vintage. Pours golden color, white head. Aroma is citrus, lemon rind, and malty pineapple. some oak, bourbon-ish. Flavor is orange, lemon, oak, caramel maltiness, surprisingly (but not unwelcome) bitter finish. Very solid.

neepsntatties (1955) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle. Colour...deep gold with a thick white head. Nose...big, boozy and hot with deep, dense hops and something like booze soaked corn syrup. Palate...massively cloying and yet incredibly dry, this bad boy reeks of boozy Bourbon barrel goodness and sweetly spiced grapefruit sections. The booze does not relent and carries through the big, dry and hoppy finish.

jbruner (4627) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Bottom of a shared bottle pours a hazy golden orange with minimal bubbly off-white head. Aroma and taste of big bourbon notes over oxidized IPA, burnt caramel, wood, vanilla, sweet and boozy. A bourbon barrel strong ale at this point, but not bad as that, just not an IPA.

Well, I finally opened it. Pours an IPA-golden in the glass. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, and a little pine hop. Long palate is slick and smooth. Better than bourbon, maybe. Drinkable. Butterscotch, vanilla ice cream, straw, and bourbon.

On tap at Macgregors. Pour is hazed golden amber with white head. Nose is light bourbon, sticky caramel, pine resign, touch of pine sol. Taste is a little bourbon(much less than KBS), still sticky resigny hop, notes of citrus and lots of pine.
