UPDATED: SEP 2, 2014 09/14 re rate. Bumped up from 3.8. The aroma and taste when cold are higher than a 4.0. Too much f an aftertaste when it warms but outstanding colder. More rates to come!!!!................09/12 - lowered slightly; maybe an older bottle but aroma not a 9 as in first rate; all else still applies... recd in trade. rated this with Rhar iron Thistle - rated both a 4 but they were very different for being the same style... This beer is a 9 on aroma - bourbon, some, wood, malt, and vanilla? wow! creamy med thick palate. beer from glass to bottle; hazy amber/brown colow with big head with long lasting lacing. Taste - very sweet, roasted stuff, bourbon taste not is good as aroma (which is almost impossible) proabley liked iron thistle taste more but this had a better aroma...

Poured a medium brown color with a small amount of haze. Sweet caramel malt mixes well with a strong bourbon woodsy aroma. Strong bourbon and oak taste. very slight aftertaste. the alcohol isnt that well hidden. earth, peat, cherries, vanilla. Very smooth and creamy.

Pours copper color with light, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of barley wine -like sweetness and some alcohol notes. Flavor of vanilla, sweet plums and ripe fruits. Like Tom Hardys ale in some ways.

mcberko (16051) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2012
12 oz. bottle, sent from BigTomz (thanks a lot Tom!), pours a beautiful dark mahogany / ruby red with a small ring of beige head. Aroma of brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla, butterscotch / toffee malt, and wood - exquisite on the nose. Flavour of scotch whiskey and bourbon barrels upfront, followed by vanilla, a high booze factor, some candy floss, and more alcohol burn - the alcohol is a bit overburdening to be honest. Medium complexity with a big warming effect, though too much heat. Very enjoyable slow sipper, but loses points for the unmasked ABV.

Received in trade from barak316, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a slightly murky reddish brown with a tiny off white head that never really musters, but never fully dissipates either. Smells of sweet caramel and brown sugar with lots of dark fruit and oak and bourbon. The smell is heavenly really. Taste is as sweet as advertised but have enough bourbon warmth to keep is slightly balanced. Lots of dark sugars and dark fruits round out the flavor nicely. Medium to thick body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet sugary almost syrupy mouthfeel. I enjoyed the heck out of this beer! I only wish it were a little easier to obtain.

Good overall taste but not as much as one would think for a barrel aged brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

deep amber. Two finger white frothy head. Decent retention with sticky lacing through out. Strong vanilla aroma with noticeable bourbon and woodiness. Barrel notes mask most of the other smells. Roasted malt and smoke flavors. Definite woodiness. Sweet vanilla and bourbon flavors. Drinks smooth and creamy. Light carbonation.
