750, capped and foiled. Pours a dark ebony, completely opaque, with a dense and creamy tan head that lasts and lasts. Big beautiful sweet milk chocolate nose, but deeply nuanced, not just a sticky dumpling of processed sugar. Caramel and soft herbal notes in the background. Creamy thick body with soft carb. Deep complex chocolate notes on the attack and on the mid palate. Beautifully layered complex sweetness, but chocolate always predominates. Mild, fairly clean finish. Wonderful beer.

Bottle, shared with my father-in-law and my wife. Murky sienna body, creamy light golden head. Aroma of chocolate milk, toffee, vanilla, hints of spice and funk. Soft, chocolatey palate, sweet whiskey is paired gently, vanilla, prunes, just a hint of acidic funk in the finish. Very smooth and full bodied. My bottle was bottled January 2015-- I wonder what will happen to the minimal funk character over time? I’d love to have a second bottle to lay down for a year or two... marcus (10222) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 2, 2015

750 ml, vintage 2014, bottled in Jan, 2015. Deep reddish, darker brown in color. Aroma of oak, caramel, dark fruit, and light old molasses. neepsntatties (1988) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Layers of malt, dark fruits, molasses, spiced cake, and all the sweetness is cut by a mellow whiskey finish. Full-bodied without any real trace of alcohol. The finish is oaky with the whiskey helping to balance the malts. Pretty nicely done and glad my friend pick this up for me at the brewery because it is pricy in distribution! Thanks going to Adrien on this trade.
On tap at the GD Barrel Room. Colour... dark amber with a thick ecru head. Nose...burnt brown sugar, dark toffee and whisky soaked oak. Palate...dry, oaky and sweet! Lots of turbinado hits the mid palate and butterscotch follows. The finish is dry, long and laden with whisky. JBPortland (1543) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2016
750ml bottle pours dark reddish brown with light red edges and 2 finger head. I expected this to be good but not this good! Nose and taste are delicious with goey maple, caramel, butterscotch, some dark cocoa and bourbony fruits, raisin, light oaky vanilla, layered, nice sweetness level that isn’t overdone. Finishes with dark fruit sweetness, creamy body, cocoa and caramel. Buy this! Padron4KM (810) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Bottled Feb 18, 2016. Aroma is caramel and raisin up front, with lots of oak and vanilla as it warms. Flavor is whiskey, vanilla, spice, creamy chocolate, dark bread, oak. Never gets too boozy, nice whiskey flavor without the heat. $27 a bottle brings it down a bit.
