Maddog (526) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle purchased at the brewery in Athens. Another killer barrel aged offering from Jackie Os. The pour was dark brown with aromas of bourbon and dark fruits. Flavors of bourbon, oak, vanilla and dark fruits are woven together in this deliciously complex beer.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Opaque dark brown with very little small off-white head. Aroma is dark malt, medium body, lower carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is dark fruit, toffee, and some oak.

14 vintage drank in Nov. 15. Bottle 277/325. Thanks, Chris!! Slightly murky dark brown. Nose is sweet bourbon, toffee and caramel. Flavors follow, with some light yeast esters. If you told me it was a BB english barleywine Id believe you. Sweet and malty but not cloying. Rich stuff for a snowy night.

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.

Art (3212) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2015
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.

Dark fruit. Tons of it. Vanilla, caramel. Pours a dark purple/brown with minimal dark tan head. Candy sweet. Smooth with a hint of effervescence. Vanilla, fruit. A hint of pipe tobacco. Nice warmth on the finish.

Homer321 (4663) - Melboring, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2014
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.
