Lots of wood with a touch of caramel and stone fruit. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Caramel, wood and some cooked stone fruit. Long woody slightly fruit sweet finish.
Bottle from Jeremy. Medium Amber, flat pour. Woody, boozy aroma. Taste too is dried dark fruit, raisins, tobacco. Not as big as expected.
Tap @ bbf17. Golden colour no head. Smells wood. Tastes wood. There's not much to it other than wood. But still nice. Full body, soft carbo.

Clear orange beer, creamy beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of vanilla, bourbon, caramel, sweet malts, almonds, marzipan. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty sweet, sugary, peach candy, syrupy, fruity. Aftertaste: sweet, alcohol, bit sugary, orange peel, almonds, vanilla, bourbon, more vanilla.
Bottle. Cloudy brown body. Thinnest of beige heads rapidly disappearing. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, oak, caramel, overripe raisins, prunes, alcohol. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. Full body, velvety texture, no carbonation (guessing because of loose capping). Taste of rich malts with notes of bourbon and alcohol that linger into the finish. Vanilla, caramel, toffee. It’s an enjoyable sipper. Thanks wnoble.
330ml bottle, v2011, from Nightfall. Thank you Alex! Hazy orange amber color with small beige head. Malty aroma, fruity, dark and citrus fruits, caramel, bourbon, vanilla, wood. Sweet and light bitter taste, caramel, fruity and alcoholic like aroma. Medium oily sticky body with flat carbonation.
Bottle from a trade, shared @ HOTD tasting. Murky brown colour, no foam. No carbonation. Syrupy. Very sweet beer. Aroma of raisins, vanilla, brown sugar and lots of bourbon. A bit too much.
Thanks to Martinus(?). 355 ml. bottle sampled. 2012 Vintage. This is supposed to be the good carbonated batch. Quite hazy brown with little head. Very thick bourbon nose, touch molasses, brown sugar, very thick malts,.. Thick vanilla oak taste, lots of bourbon, boozy in a good way with a very thick molasses, lots of brown sugar, very thick malt base, thick toffee, light charred oak, warming thick oak, lingering bourbon finish. Very thick & creamy, decadent, amazing but very brutal beer, almost too much but that is just the way I like, beast the regular Fred from the Wood if memory serves me well but not by much.
