Note's from Captain Lawrence Rosso Batch 3 release / tasting:
Part of the brewery release from the 2010 St Nik xmas event. This was another busted out in the wee hours of the morning. I'm a pretty big fan of Adoration and had been saving this bottle for the right moment and this seemed it. Nice caramel color, no head as expected, bourbon is hot on the nose and on the flavor, which mixes really nice with the adoration spiciness. Very smooth, the buffalo trace barrels really do nice work with this beer. smells hot on the bourbon, taste is solid with a great mix. picture adoration with a strong ping of bourbon. mouth is very smooth. overall this was a great beer and i can't wait to try the others from this release.

From 01/30/14 notes. Had an 8 oz. pour of this on tap at Blind Tiger. Not sure if the vintage but assuming they re-brewed this recently.
a - Pours a deep, reddish brown color with one inch of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of coconut, sweet dark fruits, oak, bourbon, caramel malts, and toasted malts. Nice nose, lots of coconut from the barrel. Bourbon is somewhat light.
t - Tastes of bourbon, sweet dark fruits, caramel malts, coconut, oak, toasted malts, chocolate, toasted malts, and molasses. Taste has more bourbon, caramel, and chocolate than the nose; a step up for me.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink and no heat to it at all.
o - Overall I liked this one quite a bit; I liked it better as it warmed up and the more I drank
it. I also liked it a little better than the base beer. No heat but nice bourbon in the taste, and coconut throughout. Definitely worth checking out if you see it, would like to have it again.

@ Busy Bee 4th Anniversary
Dark brown color with no head to speak of. Bourbon aroma, heavy on the oak, with vanilla, booze, spices, and fruity esters. Rich, smooth flavor...vanilla, bourbon, woody dryness, berries, figs, plums, and light cocoa. Increasing festive spices and yeast as it warms up. Gets a little sticky and heavy on the palate after about eight ounces. Fluffy carbonation, medium-full body, and creamy smooth. This is certainly a sipper, but a very nice, special surprise to come across. Happy birthday Busy Bee and thanks for the treat...
