Bottle at Gabf. Pours a dark brown with medium tan head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is wood, candi sugar, bourbon. Slick body, vanilla, oak, toffee, boozy finish, enjoyed this. Homer321 (5255) - Melboring, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2017
Bottle. Teku. Strong luscious malt aroma. Light booze and vanilla. Initiallybthe tatse is thick but not cloying and pleasantly rich. Finish I a touch light and thin. Almost a touch of tannin or red wine. Hmmm. BVery (11494) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2017
Sampled at GABF 2017 in Denver, CO. Numerical rating only - did not take detailed notes. Dogbrick (14389) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2017
Sample at the DBLDP on 09/03/2017. Cloudy reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that dissipates gradually to a dense film. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of bourbon, malt and dark fruit. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, caramel malt and dark fruit. The finish is oaky and slightly syrupy with a fruit and bourbon aftertaste. Good beer overall.

Draft. Brown pour with little to no head. Sweet honey, fruit, oak, vanilla, and bourbon aromas. Flavors are harsh upfront, boozy, but mellow out on the finish, sweet, vanilla and fruit tones. jtclockwork (17769) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2017
Bottle - pours reddish amber tan head - nose/taste of caramel, toffee, bourbon, bready malt and touch of cassia - full body. pressboxjoe (464) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle. Last of 3. Beautiful deep woody vanilla aroma. Little head. Stone fruit and bourbon barrel. Leather, old books, chocolate cherry liqueur. Instead of buying every bourbon barrel beer in the world, I’m going to start focusing on hoarding beers like this. pineypower (3352) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Bottle. Much thanks to Dave for the pickup. Pours out dark cola almost black color with a small white head. Aroma is awesome, dark fruits, smoke, oak, woodsy notes, caramel, toffee, toast, chocolate, some sweet vanilla, bourbon. Taste is slightly less complex but still really solid. Smoky wood, oak, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, toffee, toast, light syrup, earth, dark fruit, light alcohol burn. Really solid. dmac (6646) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2016
750ml wax dipped bottle from the source. Poured a murky muddy deep brown with a tight foamy beige head. Aroma is the best part of this beer. Aroma starts off sweet, Honey, toffee, caramel, barrel, light bourbon, vanilla extract. Flavor of super dry grains, barrel, vanilla extract, old caramel and English toffee, boozy bourbon. Palate is dry throughout, big mouthfeel, softer tight bubbly carbonation, decent heat throughout. Flavor got better with warmth.
