markwise (4424) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Growler from Greenville Beer Exchange. Pours a dark brown with a white head. Nose is whiskey, cherries, slight chocolate, and some yeast and esters. Flavor is similar with cherry and chocolate pushing the whiskey to be the first one through the door, but the whiskey is a large child with a head start, so it gets there first and stays there. Some vanilla, yeast, and more whiskey with bits of booze in there as well. Light in body for the style and interesting overall.

blipp (5826) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Draft. Pours near black with a thin head. Sweet and roasted malty aroma with more sweet bourbon. The flavor has bourbon, light roasted malts, toffee, and molasses. Not bad.
