Rich sherry and caramel aromas with great vanilla notes. Pours a reddish amber with no head. Creamy vanilla with caramel, very smooth, finishes sweet and spicy with alcohol notes. Awesome sipping beer! GT (10001) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2010
355mL thanks to ryan I think at DC Elite. Hard to believe this turns out so well with such a mediocre base. Rich rum raisin, mellow bourbon, vanilla nose. Taste is full of hot, warming bourbon; vanilla; rich maltiness. Still a little syrupy sweet. brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2010
Thanks a ton ryan. Pours a very thick and dark brown. Has a very strong aroma that’s *almost* perfectly balanced, but it’s a tiny bit boozy- other than that, a nice mix of bourbon, raisins, alcohol, and sweet cherries. Taste is quite strong the whole way through, starting off dominated by sweet raisins and bourbon, fading to alcohol and bitter malt. Finish has some bitter malt, alcohol and bourbon.

Opaque chocolate brown pour. Almost no carbonation. Grainy pour with lots of bourbon. Notes of honey, chocolate, and maple syrup. Nice balanced bourbon flavor with chocolate and lots of grain. A bit boozy on the finish. Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2010
pours dark copper, very low carbonation.
Aroma was strong bourbon, cherry fruit, vanilla
Caramel/toffee body with a full vanilla flavour, some cherry and some oatmealish tones.
Bourbon presence is well integrated.

2009 Bottle. Very dark amber colored pour, no carbonation and an aroma of heavy bourbon/whiskey and rich malts. Flavor started slightly malty, then a little bourbon, slick vanilla and a sweet warming caramel corn aftertaste. Solid, unique and worth searching out. Very glad I got to try it.

[Bottle] generously shared by Dalzale. Thanks! Pours a clear copper with a scant head. Aroma is cherry, vanilla, coconut, caramel, toffee, and some alcohol. Flavor is very smoky, a bit astringent, quite a bit of alcohol, a touch of popcorn, quite a bit of hop bitterness. This beer is super sharp, bordering on stinging. smith4498 (3650) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2010
