rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle from Knightly. Deep hazy brown/ruby color with a tan head. Nose is cherry, red wine vinegar, toffee malt, oak and vanilla. Sweet malt, toffee and hazelnut flavors, vanilla, oak, cherry with touches of plums. Smooth slightly creamy body with no trace of alcohol. Not too shabby.

Tmoney99 (14199) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark sweet fruit and woody whiskey alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

Une bouteille de 37.5 cl bue en compagnie de rodenbach99 et de sa femme. Une robe brune et un petit col mousseux dcourag. Un nez trs doux de chocolat et de caramel avec un bourbon fort qui transporte des notes fruites et boises. Au got, une eau-de-vie qui propose du caramel et dautres notes sucres. En bouche, un corps faiblement structur avec des bulles bien molles et une texture aqueuse. Une finale parfume par un bourbon trop doux. Rien de catastrophique dans cette bire compltement domine par le bourbon et les sucres,

Bouteille de 375ml partage avec Patrick mais on aurait t mille puis il en aurait rest. Je suis devant le dilemme de rater selon que la bire est bien faite ou buvable. Ici la bire est bien fabrique mais elle est tout simplement imbuvable. Elle est trop sucre, trop alcoolise, trop bourbonne par tre vraiment intressante. Franchement ce nest pas pour moi.

drowland (8476) - Georgia, USA - JUL 28, 2013
7/28/13. 375mL bottle from Grassroots. Deep amber brown pour with a nice fluffy khaki head that sticks like a champ and coats the glass, even in lumps in spots. Mild fruity aroma, mildly malty - smells like beer, honestly - almost Budweiser in a sense (seriously) - with some BA burn. Surprisingly light flavor, some sweet fruits, water, and light BA and metal. Im surprised at how light and unflavorful this is while being surprised at how drinkable it is considering the style and ABV. Eh.

harrisoni (18001) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
This appeared in my bag from the day trip to Wolverhampton so I guess this is from BlackHaddock, thanks Jeremy if this came from you. Oxidised aroma. Some malt. But really very oxidised to the extent of being almost undrinkable. Nasty. Sorry, this is a drain pour.

2013.07.08 - Mikkeller Monks Brew Barrel Aged Bourbon Edition - 12.7 oz bottle in small Chimay goblet glass. Aroma: a bit of subdued toffee or candied fruit, bourbon/oak/vanilla Appearance: Pours around 28 on SRM scale. A moderately deep chestnut brown with red highlights. Head/carbonation was pretty vigorous on pour, about a finger or. Centimeter which settled to a creamy cap. Taste: Yummy. Its a Belgian. Sweet malt, a tease of sour at the front, bit of peppery spice midway, and a smooth exit. This is pretty smooth for a 10%. Vanilla, oak, a trace of licorice maybe. Palate/Mouthfeel: a bit creamy but surprisingly slick and liquid. Little to no alcohol burn. Very well done. Its not a unique beer IMO but it is well crafted. Aroma 6/10, Appearance 5/5, Taste 8/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 16/20

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Appearance: Pours a murky tea brown. Frothy tan film.

Aroma: Bourbon , toffee, dried dark fruit. Maple sugar.

Taste: Bourbon, sweet cereal, baking cocoa, woody finish. Lingers.

Mouthfeel: A bit astringent. Active, creamy carbonation.

Overall: Pretty complex and tasty, and I enjoyed this far more with the added treatment of bourbon barrels.
