cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Pour is a dark murky ugly brown with a small amount of tan head that dissipates immediately. Nose is heavy bourbon and some charred wood with faint notes of sweet candied sugar. Flavor is also heavy on the bourbon and wood, actually in a nice way. The quad doesnt make a ton of appearance, malts are actually fairly rich, a hint of malty sweetness in back. Fuller body, fairly dry, a touch chalky in the feel.

Dark reddish brown pour. Aromas of dark fruits, brown sugar, caramel, butter scotch. Taste was sweet with light bourbon heat. Nothing too crazy. Like dessert in a glass.

22oz bottle to snifter. Nose is full of booze with a ton of raisin and plum. Pour is deep dark brown with a small light brown head that dies immediately. Taste is raisin and dried fruit followed by hot alcohols and a moderate chest warming alcohol presence. Chewy mouthfeel, but the alcohol just continues to build and overpower the base beer.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Corbet. Deep mahogany body with some darker, ruby tinted edges; the thinnest, khaki colored collar sits quietly on top. Aroma of stale raisins, toffee, red apples, a little bit of harsh booziness that kind of overpowers things. Hot, sweet. Taste is even boozier than the aroma indicates. Hot! Loads of spicy oak, soaked immensely with fiery bourbon. Some hefty dark fruit sweetness tries to balance but just collides, really. Prune, black licorice, anise, fig. Hint of stale caramel. Lingering booze that heats up the palate & burns on the way down. Too hot, this thing needs to be tamed.

22oz bottle shared thanks to Lukaduke! Pours dark rusty brown with a small head. Nose is nutty boozy bourbon spice dark fruit and caramel raisin. Taste has wonderful silky mouthfeel, lots of dark fruit, some roastiness, oaky vanilla, boozy spice. Finish is roasty spice fruit, raisin, caramel, vanilla, some nutty brown sugar and almond. Nice sipper that tastes bigger than it feels, with good complexity.

hopscotch (11024) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle... Clear brown pour with mahogany highlights. No head. Smells like the Town Hall Twisted Trace - mainly of bourbon. Full-bodied and velvety with stinging carbonation. Great bourbon flavor without being hot or harsh. Plenty of rich, toasted malts and dark fruits, but the bourbon is front and center. Im glad it is, because its rock solid and very enjoyable. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!
