"similar to fine cognac???? are you freakin kidding me?! not as bad as i thought it may be, but definitely not worth the $$$. Vanilla anyone? thats about all you can taste here. if you like creamy its not terrible. otherwise avoid."

11/26/10. Big 40-ish bottle with a screw on top. Huge thanks to Ian for popping this bottle on Tims birthday! I honestly didnt even know this beer existed! Huge vanilla and bourbon aroma with sticky sweet honey and wood tannins. Sweet overwhelming vanilla flavor again with bourbon and honey and a hint of burn.

24 ounce bottle from 2005. Pours a cloudy amber-brown with a thin tan head that fades. Taste is of oak, vanilla, malt, caramel, fruit, molasses and bourbon. There is a hint of warming alcohol in the finish. Similar aroma. Has a creamy, full body. Easy to drink, smooth and rather enjoyable. I wouldnt mind having a fresher bottle to rate, but this kept quite well.

(Bottle, from backlogsampled in 2006) Pours a hazy amber body with small beige head. Aroma of vanilla, oak, caramel, and some plastic. Flavor of caramel, vanilla extract, bourbon, and brown sugar. A cloying, sticky mess.

Bottle, pours hazy amber with a medium tan head. Aroma is strong vanilla and oak. Flavor is overly sweet with lots of heat. Strong vanilla extract flavor with some spicing and a strong burn in the finish.

05 drank in 09, shoulda held on to this one. I imagine at first it was an over carbonated, oak powered Michelob abortion. 4 years later: smooth oak, vanilla balance with caramel some cherry, very pleasant! Not worth $10+, mine was free, but if it came back out Id get another one for $6-8

2005 bottle. Pours reddish amber with a small white head. Strong bourbon and oak aroma, with some vanilla highlights. Aroma is very enticing. Flavor is toffee, vanilla and fig at first, but is quickly overtaken and dominated by oak, bourbon and alcohol. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Oak lingers for a long finish. The aroma got my hopes up, but ultimately this beer disappointed.

jgb9348 (6004) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Nice amber coloured body with a huge ruby coloured tint. Aroma of strong oak, bad funky malt and strong vanilla. Medium-bodied; Strong bad taste of malt, alcohol, vanilla and vomit. Aftertaste is that bad throw-up flavour with some vanilla, strong sweetness and some malt. Overall, this beer was absolutely horrible. I cant believe I spent nearly $10 on this piece of crap, but I guess its all worth trying. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Norms in Vienna, Virginia on 04-January-2006.

Really not too bad in spite of our prejudice. This is the 2005 version. Called on the label a "dark" beer and I guess it’s darker than a pilsner, buttttt... Aroma is vanilla and a hint of spice and malt. Flavor is a little too sweet and too vanilla, but there’s a real nice bourbon characteristic that comes thru in the finish. Can’t sense the booze at all. Not a session beer.
