22oz bottle shared by ygtbsm94: Pours a clear dark copper bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet dark caramel and bourbon vanilla oak nose with a touch of light fruity esters. Starts with pretty good fullness and dark caramel sweetness with a smooth vanilla oak and bourbon character before a slightly warming, drier finish. Pretty well-balanced and complex. nimbleprop (8922) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 2, 2012

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a cloudy opaque amber with a small, rough off-white head. Heavy alcohol in the nose but also an interesting an unusual hop blend - I feel I detect some Sorachi Ace, but that’s probably wishful thinking. Rich body, lovely caramel, a lovely Bourbon character and quite a bozy finish. I really dig this! 160612 Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2012

F0BAB 2010: This p0ured a cl0udy amber b0dy with a suggesti0n 0f a head. The n0se was b00zy, malty sweet, c0me t0ffee, and a whiff 0f fl0ral scents. The taste was h0t with alc0h0l, sweet with caramel/t0ffee, tempered with a charred w00d bitterness. Pretty decent. SG111 (2138) - New York, USA - MAR 7, 2015

A pour from the bottle on Black Christmas V. Pours a hazy golden with a tan head. Aroma is fruity and berry bourbon. Similar taste, very bitter. Quite smooth and good, though. hombrepalo (1972) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Sampled @ FoBAB 2010. Pours a dark coppery brown. The head is rather thin, but this is looking pretty good to me. Nice pungently sweet malty aroma. SLIGHT toffee, but nothing substantial going on here. A little bit of booze of the nose is a bit distracting. There is a light citrus and pine hop aroma, but the malts are dominating. A little hot, towards the end. JoeTheYounger (1195) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle from DA. Cloudy copper pour with bubbly thin tan head. Aroma is bourbon and spicy black pepper. Taste is very similar with a bitter astringent taste that lingers. Low to med carbonation.
