Bourbon and alcohol. That, unfortunately sums it up. Easily my biggest disappointment for the night at Barcade. The bourbon aging effectively killed everything else of note.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Draft at the Three Penny Taproom - Pours a very dark black/brown in color with a small tan head. Aroma is strong of bourbon and vanilla with some dark roasted malts. Flavor is slightly sweet and heavy with the bourbon/vanilla. The dark roasted malts come in at the end. Dry finish. I like this much better than their regular "Black"...

Draft at St. Stephen’s with James. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a thick, creamy tan head aroma of toffee, caramel, chocolate, bourbon, rum, toasted malts and slight whiskey notes. Full bodied with a modest, smooth palate. Finishes with a nice heavy burn. Good stout.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Draft at Churchkey. Black pour with a light tan head. Aroma dominated by bourbon with lost of cream and vanilla. I was expecting a boozy punch in the face after the aroma, but the flavor was suprisingly mellow. Bourbon is the predominant flavor but its not overpowering. A bit of tartness and a hint of roast. Very smooth drink.

Sampled at American Craft Beer Fest 2010. Pours black with a beige head. Thick texture, sort of oily. Strong flavors of chocolate and coffee with some hoppy undertones. A great beer

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
A Sim rate (Extreme Beer Festival): Such a subtle bourbon in the aroma which is rare for a barrel-aged beer of this kind. Smooth coconut, nuts and rich chocolate in the flavour. So incredibly subtle again for a barrel-aged beer. Wood and caramel in the finish. Damn. Absolute win!
