2010 Vintage 12oz Bottle; Pour is like caramel in color with a modest khaki head that does not retain particularly well into this snifter. This brew has a fantastic nose - caramel, toffee, dark fruits, but honestly; bourbon dominates. The flavor profile is more developed for me - The tasting notes list toasted marshmallow and I think that is modestly accurate for me - Its generally on the sweet side; its fairly viscous in spite of the lighter than expected coloration - dark fruits, vanilla, oak, bourbon, warming alcohol, and brown sugar - this one seemed a bit too boozy to balance perfectly; otherwise a fantastic brew and my first Kuhnhenn

Big huge dark fruity on the nose, lots of bourbon, wood, sweet toffee, caramel, sugar. Dark reddish brown, not much in the way of head, but nice legs and definitely a viscous one. Flavors of dark fruit, bourbon, caramel, residual sugars. Hot alcohol but nice sweetness. Definitely in the Kuhnhenn mold. Mild carbonation, huge body, lingering sweet/hot. Good.

Sample at Mondial 2011.
Appearance : Clear mahogany, no head.
Aroma : Intense bourbon with lots of raisins and licorice.
Taste : Intense bourbon with sweet raisins and licorice. Lots of bourbon on the finish with quite a lot of alcohol. Light soy sauce. <
Overall : Very intense woah ! 1 ounce is more than enough to sample this. Very nice richness. I really liked the intense raisins notes. Bourbon felt a bit too intense though. Nice finish. Interesting but I wouldnt seek this again. I personally look for more balance in bourbon barrel aged beers. A hard one to rate as it is very tasty and complex but after 1 ounce Im done...

Diogne (1155) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2011
Bottle sampled at Mondial de la bire 2011. Dark amber with a thin beige head. Aroma is very woody with vanilla, bourbon sugar, biscuity, caramel, dark fruits and alcohol. Flavor is also quite woody with bourbon, brown sugar, dark malt, caramel, alcohol, dark fruits and a lot of residual sugars (a bit too much). Full body with a liquorous mouthfeel. Very sweet!

Verre de dgustation, dune bouteille, au Mondial 2011. Armes de caramel brl, de chne, de vanille et dalcool fort. Robe brune aux reflets roux, lgrement trouble, lgre dentelle et effervescence assez faible. En bouche, on retrouve beaucoup de caramel brl et de sucres rsiduels, mais la bire nest pas si ronde pour une cration aussi forte. Le ft de chne est trs prsent, apportant des notes vanilles. Lalcool est vraiment trs prsent. Longue finale alcoolise prsentant une forte amertume rsineuse. La Fourth Dementia rgulire est bien meilleure, mon avis.

beerchugger (716) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Pours a hazy murky brown with no head and no lace. There is intense aromas with vanilla, candied brown sugar, toffee, tart cherries, caramel, and chocolate. The aroma is very tell-tale that this was aged in bourbon barrels. Immediately, the beer is flat while being a bit hot and boozy. Loads of chocolate and caramel on the palate. The vanilla is also rather intense with some tart cherries, candied sugars, and charred oak. The finish is surprisingly short.
