COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer aged for nine months in bourbon barrels previously used for Framinghammer. This length process allows the 14% ABV beer to mellow and develop a deep vanilla, almost honey like sweetness and plum like dark fruit flavors. This beer is a sipper. You’ve been warned!

Homer321 (4663) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle to snifter. A great malt and lightly fruity aroma. Cloudy to murky orange reddish. Medium off white head. Taste is super fruity. Lots of esters. Horrible in terms of a clean lager. But grate in taste

Thanks WillRun for sharing. Kept for a year or so and shared tonight @ a tasting. a nice burnt orange brown appearance. 1 finger head fades quickly. Smells nice. Lots of caramel and toffee, some cigar smoke with a faint vanilla ice cream. Taste is also a lot of vanilla ice cream. Creamy, sweet, bourbon. Really nice actually. it’s like drinking a vanilla toffee ice cream float with 14% ABV.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle: Thanks, Chris. Semi-clear copper color with only a slight haze. Small khaki ring outlines the glass. Aroma of sweet caramel, vanilla, raisins, light bourbon & alcohol warmth, prune, toffee, & a light undertone of floral notes. Flavor follows through the same, very sweet with heavy toffee covered prunes, raisins, caramel dipped dates, light vanilla, & a finish that lingers with bourbon soaked wood, anise, & burnt brown sugar. It’s definitely big & heavy, but still drinks quite "easy" for 14% ABV. Nice stuff.

teorn88 (7632) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 21, 2014
50cl bottle at Chriso’s Christmas tasting, London. It pours a deep rich golden color with a small beige head. Aroma is a bit of fish food, caramel, bread. Taste is sweet. Actually more like hyper-sweet, with caramel, toffee. Huge sweet and light tangy fruity finish. Ok booze to make babies if drank in large quantities by all parties involved
