bhensonb (10816) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Pours pretty dark brown/black with a bubbly/foamy tan head. Aromas of oak char, chocolate and bourbon/vanilla. Near med body. The flavor is very oak and smoke - and burnt wood. There’s some vanilla and chocolate. A less than sturdy stout aged in oak. Still pretty good.

brokensail (10653) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a somewhat thin dark brown color with a minimal off-white head. S: I could smell the butter in this as soon as I opened the bottle. Diacetyl pretty much dominates the nose and prevents any bourbon or stout aromas from coming through. T: For a bourbon barrel aged stout, this beer is incredibly favorless. Watery and bland with maybe a bit of roast and chocolate. M: The body is just as disappointing as the rest of the beer: thin and lowly carbonated. D: Another piece of evidence that -bals do not always make a beer better/good.

Tmoney99 (10475) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Draft. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that was that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Solid roasted coffee, wood and chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted chocolate flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good and my expectations where met.

12 ounce bottle. Dark but clear brownish maroon color, small tan head that settles to an edge, solid lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, bitter cocoa, vanilla, earth. Taste is slightly sweet, dilute roasted coffee. Slight alcohol in the finish. Medium body. Nice enough.

hopscotch (8915) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle… Pours black with dashes of mahogany and a small, khaki head. Lots of toasted oak and vanilla in the aroma, but the bourbon component isn’t overbearing in either the nose or the flavor. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. Clean, malty, chocolate and bourbon flavor with a nutty, chocolaty, vanilla finish. Smooth!

355mL. Pours a clear deep ruby with a large, tan head. Spotty lace. Nose is malty, roast coffee. Ashy and roasty. Taste is coffee and tobacco. Richer than expected with ash and red fruitiness. Watery, tart mouthfeel. Not super great.
