Firkin at Devil’s Den in Philadelphia, PA. Pours pitch black and opaque with a two finger beige head that has great retention, slowly fading into a lasting cap. Steaks of lacing coat the glass on the way down. Complex aroma with a really nice balance of sweet malt, subtle roast, earthy oak and spicy bourbon. Lots of silky chocolate along with caramel, toffee and coffee bean with a nicely integrated bourbon barrel character. Sweet, spicy bourbon notes that compliment the chocolate and dark malts rather than overpowering them along with earthy oak and vanilla. On the fuller end of medium bodied with soft carbonation and an almost perfectly integrated barrel character that compliments the cocoa, vanilla and dark malts. Excellent spicy bourbon flavor that doesn’t give off any heat or outshine the other characteristics of the beer. There’s also a decent amount of toasted oak, vanilla and coconut flavor followed by silky chocolate, caramel, toffee, toast and coffee bean. Really well balanced and deceptively drinkable. Tastes kind of like bourbon chocolate milk. Awesome beer!

Drake (8029) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2012
Cask at the first Tap Into Virginia Cask Fest, Capital Ale House Downtown, 4/21/12. Pours pitch black with a thin head. Fair head retention. Aroma of rich roasted coffee, fruity notes, anise, vanilla, citrus and toasty notes. The taste is roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, citrus, berries and a hoppy finish. Medium-full bodied, smooth, pretty damn good.
