krumbum (520) - truckee, California, USA - AUG 11, 2013
looks a brown until held up to the light and it is more of a deep red color. Light nutty scents emanate from this beer. A nutty malty taste light almost vanilla little bit of a licorice bitter on the end. Rinses relatively clean with a slight wood aftertaste.

Tap at Rattle. Pours clear brown. Spicy aroma with some cherry, somewhat medicinal. A bit of bourbon taste, hints of vanilla and oak. Can’t really get past the medicinal flavor, not a big fan.

onceblind (3965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2010
on tap @ brewery. packs an unsuspecting punch with deep notes of caramel, some clove, and lots of bourbon. Tastes like you should be drinking it by a fire. Wonderful red/caramel colour with not much head. Very Aromatic and mysterious.
