Red-brown, beige cover. Aroma is fusel, alcohol, caramel, light fruit. Taste is fruity, caramel, vanilla, oak, whisky. Nice enough but a little harsh. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle shared by Jcwattsrugger. garnet brown with a small sudsy head. Nose is malty, light bourbon, vanilla, oak. Nicely balanced and fairly complex. I was impressed by this one as I’m usually not a big fan of this style. Toadvine (72) - Arizona, USA - FEB 10, 2013
22oz bomber from Jubilation on a recent trip to Albuquerque. Gold wax cap, no year otherwise indicated. Pours a deep, opaque brown with a small head that rapidly dissipates. Aroma is sweeter than the Chicken Killer (if that is possible), with lots of whiskey and vanilla. Taste is a bit sour and more complex than the Chicken Killer and has plenty of oak notes, bourbon, dark fruits, and caramel. This is a pretty good variation.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a hazy deep amber with an off-white head. Very sweet and oaky Bourbon aroma. Rich body, thick burned caramel, slightly woody with a massive booziness. A very typical US-style Barleywine. Nice alright but perhaps a little rough and unrefined. 250213 M82 (469) - Kansas, USA - MAY 10, 2013
22oz into 15.25oz Spiegelau Soiree Cognac snifter; pours up a murky deep copper with loosely structured off white head leaving thin, elongated splatters all around, half sheet persists; nose is bourbon and water with light fruits and very light caramel malts, as this warms, dates and very light tobacco come in, charred oak when reaching room temp; taste follows with a big expression of tropical fruit juice complexities, sour-ish oaky fruit notes, light fruity esters, minimal spice; after follows with mild toasted oak layers on a medium, smooth body; a lot to be said on this, yet I can’t help but miss the big, deeper layers of something in a similar category such as Abacus, decent, and really quite unique with the big tropical fruit spiraling out from the bourbon characteristics
