’15 bottle. The pour is a murky orange/amber, with a thick head at first. The aroma is mostly that of a strong ale with a hint of booze. The taste has a ton of flavor. Not as harsh as I would have thought from the aroma or just from regular DB. The bourbon is light, but compliments it very well. wlajwl (6803) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Aroma is bourbon, strong malts and a good hint of caramel sweetness. The flavor is bourbon, strong malts, mild grapefruit/hops and a mix of caramel sweetness and warming alcohol in the finish. UncleKorm (1319) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2016

500ml bottle thanks to rich. pours out a hazy peach color topped with a small head. Nose is big bourbon barrel rich malts. Taste is more of the heavy sweetness barrel notes and lots of booze. stevoj (5033) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 20, 2016

500 ml. aliased version "Southern Charred" 2015 vintage, 12.7%. Foggy copper-brown with a loose but lasting disc of bubbles. Subtler than expected nose has the anticipated notes of earthy maple-vanilla toffee, charred oak barrel and whiskey. Flavors are the same pleasant mix. Medium-heavy body has a smooth low-medium carbonation and hides the abv well. None too complex, but tasty. Dangerously large sips might be taken too easily from this nightcap style brew.

Hazy brown with a minimal off-white head.
Aroma is wet wood, bourbon, caramel malt.

Drying feel, yet boozy.
One note......woody.... shrubber85 (11390) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle. Bourbon, lactic caramel malt, and straw aroma. Cloudy brown with small head. Sweet bourbon, caramel malt, and moderately bitter herbal hay and alcohol flavor. Boozy finish. Okay but not worth the price. Benzai (15586) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2016
Sampled from bottle @ "Het is allemaal de schuld van Koen" tasting. Clear ruby red to amber color, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, some alcohol, firm maltyness, overripe fruits. Medium body, a bit fizzy carbonation. Hmm ok beer.
