Tastes of whiskey, vanilla, dark fruits, caramel, and roast. The barrel aging was done nicely. Smooth body and way too easy to drink. egajdzis (6673) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Hazy red brown color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of whiskey, sherry, vanilla, caramel, dark fruits, and some alcohol. Taste of vanilla, pine, tobacco, caramel, nuts, whiskey, and light alcohol in the finish. Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Golden clear pout with medium sized white head. Labor really took on a lot if the whisky barrel attributes. Smooth vanilla with a nice wooden backdrop. A bit sweet with some nice alcohol warmth. Thanks to crosling for the bagd hook up. His beer was really nice cgarvieuk (25391) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 6, 2010
grand tasting RBESG 10 ...copper thin tan lacing ... big sweet toffee malts nose ... sweet vanilla toffee ... little whiskey but not much ... but still little OTT BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Rating #1300. Bottle 835 of 1188 generously picked up by Rusty @ Papago...THANKS RUSTY!!! Murky burnt tangerine body with crimson hints and very little carbonation. Only a few large bubbles made their way to top of the beer after an aggressive pour. Nose is quite complex with vanilla, oak, molasses, brown sugar, and whisky. Flavor is dark candied fruit, roasted malt, toffee, cedar, oak, maple, raisin, vanilla, and whisky. Lots of wood and ash. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel. Wish it was better carbonated but really glad I had a chance to try it.

12 Blind tasting at Papsoe 27-03-2010:
Bottle: Large bubbly off-white head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Light dark amber color. Aroma of rye bread, grain, mild toasted malt. Over the palate came heavy malty feel, light dusty grain and some hoppy notes as well. Mild vanilla and alcohol with a hint of Bourbon like notes. Full bodied with an average carbonation and thick alcoholic texture. Heavy sweet flavor with good counter bitterness. Lingering malty and light vanilla like wood like finish.

Yes! .. The original is good, this is miles ahead.. . Dark brown, with good firm head, lacing is also well done .. . some dark fruit, coffee, irish coffee, and roast .. . just damn good! .. . I’m just supposed to smile and stay out of the conversation and say things like: "Damn," "Shit," and "That is whack." boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 17, 2010
Bottle shared at a Portland BA/RB tasting... Poured an amberish/brown color. A great tasting, smooth beer. Lots of fruits notes and sweet, candied-like grains. Low hops on this bad boy, but lots of whiskey and oaky tones creating a truly wonderful sipping experience.
