On tap at Brouwer’s for Big Wood. Pours solid black with a tan head. Aroma of wood, roasted malts, and hints of chocolate. Flavour of all of the above including syrup, and caramel. Well balanced and very nice.

Dark brown in color clear with a thin head. Rich thick dark malts sweet chocolate and light hops backing. The flavor was super rich and terrific Bourbon flavor and aroma. This was a super Porter with barrel aging that was near perfect.

On nitro tap at Brouwer’s for Big Wood, pours black with a medium, smooth tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, light chocolate and light wood. Flavour is slightly less inviting, with toasted nuts, light barrels, slight sour notes, butter chocolate and bitter coffee. Very nice.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Nose has notes of dark malts, roast, a hint of sweetness, light bourbon barrel - brown sugar and vanilla, hints of alcohol. Pours more or less black with a nice creamy nitro head. The flavor starts with roasted malts, has notes of dark chocolate and earth with essence of bourbon barrel throughout. Nice light use of bourbon. Light bodied creamy nitro conditioning. Smooth and pleasant.
