Tap at Capone’s. Pours out black with a small brown head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, roasted malts and some dark fruits. Taste is complex and very well balanced, smooth velvety mouthfeel with bourbon, chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruits and some earthy notes on the finish. Very solid.

EBF 2010 Session One: Deep brown with a tan film of head. The aroma has mocha, wood, peat, toasted dry oak and some marshmallow character. The flavor is oaky with notes of cocoa, mild coffee, and dry bourbon meshes with a chocolaty presence. Very cohesive flavors and picked up nice dry woody tannins from the barrel. Subtle, complex and tasty.

Growler from The Growler Store. Pours black with a thick creamy head that hangs around for forever. Dry roasted grain aroma with a nicely balanced bourbon barrel compliment. Smooth roasted grain, bourbon, vanilla and oak in the taste with a dark roasted grain bite on the end. Well balanced and tasty brew.

Pours a rich burnt umber color with a two finger light khaki foam. The nose is soft with sweet chocolate and bourbon soaked tootsie roll, spicy vanilla bean and licorice. The palate follows... wow Im digging this lots of cola nut, round full soft mouthfeel, bourbon bite is apparent but dialed in with the roasted chocolate malt and traces of licorice, herbal spice and vanilla. Really loving this !

Black pour tan head creamy with light lacing .... aroma of bourbon and roasted malts and coffee ..... very smooth and silky with a light fruity and roasted malt and coffee taste ... a bitter warming alcohol bourbon finish .... not a heavy brew kind of thin and easy drinking as it warms more of the bourbon flavor comes in ... not bad but i wasn’t blown away

Draft at ChurchKey in DC. Dark pour with a tan head, big lacing. Nose is oaky, smokey and a hint of bourbon. Mouthfeel is nice, smokiness continues with some fun Belgian spice and just a hint of bourbon. Quite good!
