VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Draft at the Three Penny Taproom - Pours a dark black/brown in color with a small tan head. Aroma is oaky with bourbon and vanilla. Plenty of dark roasted and sweeter toasted malts too. Flavor is fairly malty sweet with plenty of bourbon and vanilla. A bit of toffee and a hint of dark fruit too. I thought this was a fine beer...

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2010
On tap. Pours a beautiful and warm reddish brown with a small, off-white head. Aroma has a little Bourbon and overripe fruit. Medium-bodied, dried sweet fruit and again discreet, sweet Bourbon accents. Hardly any bitterness. Delicious. 070510

Murky brown pour dark amber ... off white head that thinned out and hung around the rim .... lots of lacing ... sweet malty and nutty aroma .... sweet caramel malt taste, tiny bit of a bubblegum taste, little oak, vanilla and nutty with a nutty malt finish .... balanced and tasty

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2010
A Mes rate. Draught at the White Horse.
Very dark amber with a faint off white head. Nice roasty stuff on the nose with a distinct ashy character along with some dark jammy type notes and a delicate sweetness. Similar flavour but a little better. Hints of yeast and alcohol along with some faint notes of peat and maybe a little cherry. Rich and warming in the finish. Just a tad on the thin side for what it is but pretty good stuff overall.

A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d possibly get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off. Drinking barrel aged beers in excondido is just a bad idea, drinking them by the growler is even worse. seriously nate, stop trading for growlers. Good beer, barrel wasnt overpowering, base beer was a little thin and bland. 6oz is enough.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2010
Draught at KØ10. Weak port aroma. Almost clear dark brown colour. Good vanilla flavour. Slightly spicy.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2010
On tap at Max’s in Baltimore, 4/22/10: Transparent dark mahogany with a thin ring of off-white head. Aroma of sweet toasty dark caramel dripping with bourbon and vanilla oak. Starts with decent body and carbonation with some toasty malts and cookie dough to balance the strong, but smooth bourbon flavor before a drier nutty finish. Could use a little more fullness, but still a fairly complex brew.
