Bottle from backlog notes. Pours a hazy brown color with reddish highlights and a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some roast, chocolate, light nuttiness, a splash of caramel, earthy, thin, flavor falls off a bit, not bad.

On tap at the original brewpub. Pour is brown with a small tan head and great lacing. Huge butterscotch popcorn, caramel, toffee, bread, and peppers in the aroma. Taste is a giant butter bomb, goopy vanilla cake, caramel corn, and dark fruits. Medium body with soft carbonation. Giant butter bomb.

22oz bottle, from Dilly Cafe. Probably a "vintage" bottle. $8. Shared with friends. Dark brown, near black color. Thin khaki head. No lace sticks. A lot of caramelly malt. lends a lot of sweet taste. Bigger roast character is nice, though. Significant dark fruit, more than expected. Sweeter taste, very light bitter. Little spicy bite in the finish. Alright, but it seems like age hasn’t done well for this. Bigger body, very light carbonation. Lightly sticky finish. Friends complained the body was too thin. Nice to try.

Booze. Serious bourbon. Sour notes and booze. Not as roasty as one might expect and way more bourbon than you’d think. Decent yet a sipper. More than i expected but maybe too much. The palate isn’t big enough for the bourbon. It tends to over power rather than compliment.

Pours a clear very dark brown. Some light gets through, but not much. Big full very light tan head. Nose has a vinous character. Delicious sweet dark toasted malt flavor that has a pleasant sourness to it that the nose indicated. There is also the presence of roasted nuts and dried dark fruit. Not a brown in a traditional English way, but certainly an interesting and enjoyable brew!

Poured from a bomber. Mostly black. This has a strong bourbon smelll to it. Taste is sweet and thick with chocolate hints. The bourbon flavor overpowers

Dark brown pour, off white fluffy head. A nice caramel malty aroma, and more in the taste with some chocolate flavor thrown in. A nice and enjoyable brown ale.

Aroma is fruit/berries, malts and perfumed. The flavor is malts, mild sweetness and then a long and tart finish.

Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Pours dark brown with a creamy/fizzy light tan head. Aromas of roasted malt and dark fruit. Or nuts and vanilla. Probably. Very smooth. There’s nut and chocolate. And I think vanilla. Though not all that sweet, nor bitter, it’s like eating cake in a way. Tho having just chewed up some jalapenos my taste may be off. Finishes fairly chocolate.
