hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2008
750ml bottle. Poured a medium to deeper mahogany color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, wood, peat, earthy, some smoke and some nuts. Wow, this one smelled great. Tastes of caramel, vanilla, bourbon, wood, nuts, raisins, and a light earthiness. Sweet but no where near cloying. The barrel aging was very nicely done and I’m glad I have few more of these!

madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2009
Bottled. Burgundy coloured. Light brown head. Caramel, spice, distinct bourbon barral notes like vanilla. A bit oaky. Flavour of oak, bourbon, sweetness, caramel, vanilla and some grass and apple. Medium to full bodied. Fruity end with a light spicy touch.

daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Brown pour. Aroma of bourbon, coconut, vanila, toffee, oak, peat and some agave nectar. Flavor is full of great bourbon notes, lots of vanilla and caramel and some light peat/wood. Damn fine!!

hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle… Pours hazy and very dark (a glimpse of burnt orange when held up to light) with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Excellent retention. The rich aroma is a mélange of coconut, vanilla, sourmash, caramel, oak and toffee. Medium to full-bodied with very tingly carbonation. The flavor is earthy and woody accompanied by caramel, pralines, sourmash warmth and light acidity. Lengthy, caramely, buttery, drying finish. Thanks to corby112 for hooking me up!

DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark brown with off-khaki head. Nose is malty, earthy, dark and figgy fruity, with flavors of earthy malty, figgy brown sugary fruit, some fine tobacco, oaky whiskey, and prunes. Does get a bit hot late in spite of the low ABV, but I found this to be very complex and enjoyable.

750ml pours a hazy, amber brown with a creamy beige head. Nose is mild, malty, a little sweet, some light wood, some light vanilla, cookies. Flavor is sweet, malty, light chocolate, light vanilla, cookies, butterscotch. Medium bodied, sweet, super smooth finish.

JaBier (8253) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Pours a light brown with a minimal head. Nicely balanced aroma of hop and malt. Bourbony and sweet flavor of a BA scotch ale, but not much complexity here.
