jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Bottle shared w/ J, K, and Simon at the 6/27 Del Mar Doom. Thanks Derek! F me...this is unreal. Silly, stupid, ridiculous. You know those beers you crack, sniff, and laugh? What youd expect in the nose - but to perfection. Oak, bourbon, sweet malt/toffee, mellowed and powerful. Flavor boasts PLUM, sweet (a good sweet), oak, bourbon, raisin, toffee, candy apple, caramel, slight roast in the finish ... a really pleasant heat. Palate is aged to perfection and soft... beginning to push the limits of a "beer". This was a wow type beer in every way. You guys should probably make this again.

Thanks Greg for sharing bottle! 2015 bottle poured into a taster showing lightly translucent dark wooden brown with no head. The nose light bourbon background with light figs and dates. The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated with very prickly alcohol. Strong bourbon forwardness with a light sweetness.

TimE (5528) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 5, 2017
Hazy medium brown mahogany color. Amazing bourbon, tootsie roll, vanilla, burnt raisins, dark fruit, figs, chocolate in the nose. Slighy tart. Medium full body, low carbonation, tons of vanilla, burnt raisins and brown sugar. Fairly sweet but alcohol for the strength is well hidden. Smooth as can be. Long lingering bourbon and vanilla finish. Excellent.
