light brown with minimal head. huge flavor mix. fruit, caramel, bourbon, wood. somehow this isnt a complete mess and it all meshes into a very tasty beer. you wont mistake this for a low abv beer, but alcohol is pretty well hidden.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Poured from 12oz bottle to brandy snifter. 2011 vintage: Poured like a sun brewed sweet tea with a beige head that swells briefly after a rigorous pour, only to subside back out to a thin ring that will go on to provide distinct lacing. Sexy legs follow shortly after. The bourbon barrel is the dominant player in the nostrils. Bits of graham cracker, smokey wood, caramel and toffee malts, figs and raisin, burnt sugar, more bourbon. The balance of all these flavors really overshadow the massive ABV. Wow. Very, very tasty stuff. Like a liquified boozy smore. Chocolate, raisin, vanilla, bourbon, bourbon, toffee, bourbon, charred wood, molasses, coffee, bourbon. This stuff rocks. Damn, shorty.

AdamChandler (4810) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 5, 2012
2010 Vintage. Enjoyed in a Hill Farmstead Glass at 45 Degrees F.

A - Dark brown. Almost plum or blueberry appearance when held against the light. Absolutely no head and fantastic alcohol runners on the glass swirl.

S - bourbon, oak and smoked malts.

T - Huge tobacco taste, licorice, hints of vanilla, bourbon, oak, roasted malts.

M - No carbonation at all, big body, dry and lingering bits of bourbon

O - I keep trying Old ales and keep being very disappointed with them. This was no exception to that rule. Too boozy, to must musty like eating the dust on an old leather bound dictionary that hasnt been touched for a decade. Its like spending the day in a morgue. Just very bad taste in my mouth...and unfortunately...drain pour on the last half.

2010. Thanks pete! Huge Beer. Apricot, candy floss, bourbon, whisky, tar and smoke on the nose. Rich taste - Raisins, bourbon, ash, candi sugar. Not a long finish. Hides 13.5 well, although alcool heat present as it warms.Very good, just missing the length and depth of the great BWs and OAs.

radagast83 (7637) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Sampled from a 12oz bottle. Poured a medium colored brown, with a small off-white/tan head. Aroma was dark, dried fruits with notes of bourbon and oak. Flavor was full of alcohol booze, but was enjoyable enough due to the bourbon notes, the toffee, the caramel, and the dried fruits. Enjoyable.

Wow, this is how my friends roll. Just crack this open for the hell of it. Smell is of dark fruit, bourbon and malt. Whoa dang taste! Super sweet but smooth and well blended. Reminds me of king henry. Great beer! Thanks Allen.

Hammy78 (962) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2012
2011 Bottle picked up at the source, and sampled immediately after regular 4th Dementia. Pours a dark brown, but not as dark as regular 4th Dem. a little bit of khaki head that becomes an instantaneous ring around the glass. A couple spot of lacing, unlike its father. Smell is sooooo damn complex. Vanilla, bananas, plumbs, raisins, fig, wood (oak I assume), sugar, whiskey of some sort. Tastes sweet and boozy, dark fruit, soft on the tongue, with a little bite. I think I like this better than the OG.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2012 2010 Bottle. Muddy and dark amber in appearance with a small beige head. Aroma is of overripe fruits, bourbon, walnuts, and oak. Flavor is extremely boozy even though its been aging for two years. Malts dominate it - toffee, caramel, ripe dates, licorice. Very viscous/oily with little carbonation. Some slight bitterness in the finish.

Pours dark black with a small head. Wonderful aromas of dark fruit and booze. Rich deep and complex. Dark fruit, chocolate, caramel, and nice barrel notes. Ngreat stuff.

Pours dark brown with a few bubbles for a head. Strong aroma of molasses, bourbon, vanilla, and wood. Taste is similar with a lot of sweetness and alcohol on the finish. Full body and sticky on the palate with a nice warming on the way down. Very good.
