2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at The Local in San Diego. Dark brown pour with ruby on the edges and a small khaki head. Aroma is some light roast, heavy sherry and rum booze (does not smell like bourbon here). Flavor is a rather disgusting combination of roast and straight up cheap whiskey (oh, hey Black Velvet) and is barely drinkable. Way light bodied, way to thin for the bourbon barrel aging. I could not finish a 3 ounce taster of this one. It was really bad.

On nitro at Old Grove. Pours a pitch black with a thick tan Head with exellcent lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, roasted malts, coco, and a little booze. Taste is similar to the aroma but also has some coffee and grassy hop notes. Has a medium body with a slighty watery mouthfeel and a slighty bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice BA porter.

Tap at Churchillís for SDBW. Pours a deeper brown, cola highlights. Low foam. Mild bourbon nose, small sugar, no tomato past, small vanilla. Taste is thinner than expected, watery, low abv canít handle the barrel aging. Didnít come out as intended.

Cola, oak, and chocolate aromas. Bourbon kicks in on the first sip. Good body. Slightly sweet with dark fruits and licorice in the finish.

On draught at Aces & Ales in Las Vegas. Pours dark brown with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, oaky bourbon and vanilla. The finish is mildly boozy with a roasty malt aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, smooth mix of bitter chocolate, licorice, and bourbon barrel. In mouth, nice chocolate cherries with bourbon notes, wood and licorice over earming alcohol.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark and thick with a creamy white beige head. The aroma brings some brown sugar sweetness and then a bit of vanilla and oak. The flavor brings a shot of bourbon, smooth though, but falling short on body and complexity in general. For 6% that makes sense though, so overall I think it is a decent brew.

Buffalo Trace aged. Opaque dark brown beer, pale tan head. Nice toffee caramel nose. Palate is light and semi crisp. Taste follows the nose. Mellow dark malt with rich caramel, a little toffee and mild minerals. Mild tang. Pretty mellow whisky. Good stuff!

Deep brown in color. Aroma is that of a turning orange...just past ripe. Flavor is like red apple and roast malt.
