75cl, as Campeador ’Greaves Ale’, no mention of ABV, new exclusive American blended brew, thx to Ibrew2or3!, very complex brew, malty/woody and slightly alcoholic/fruity, yet not too heavy, very balanced, cloudy, small head, very good brew

Bottle 97 of 240:   Deep cola, thin frothy tannish head, little lacing.   Bourbon notes right up front.   Seems slightly smoked.   A little dark pitted fruit, minor peat.   Seems complex, but a bit overshadowed by Bourbon.   Sweet start, Bourbon like, sweet roasted malts, graham cracker, very soft dark fruits, with only a touch of peat and campfire.   Not as bright as I would have thought.   Somewhat subtle, yet flavorful.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   A bit warming, but not alcoholic.   Very light tartness.   Lingering Bourbon, graham cracker, sweet soy sauce, dark fruit, and breadiness.   Pretty tasty after 2 years.   Thanks Matt for this rarity!

Draft at Churchkey. Very dark brown, brown edge head. Aroma of vanilla, coffee, brandy, cocoa. Taste is rich Irish coffee, vanilla, milk chocolate. Lovely.

nimbleprop (4536) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 2, 2013
Sampled at Churchkey during CBC week. Pours a watery, translucent black with zero head. Nose is all booze, fusel alcohol, some malt. Flavor is sweet, not as boozy as the nose makes you think, dark fruit, raisin, nail polish. Hot, sticky finish.

On draft at ChurchKey DC during the Craft Brewers Conference. Pours black with tan head. Whiskey notes dominate the aroma. Figs, raisins and plum flavors with vanilla and oak notes. Fabulous brew.

Bottle at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Black pour with a tan head. Complex heady aroma. Dark fruits, vanilla, brown sugar. Flavor follows the aroma. Full bodied, complex.

Bottle shared at RBWG! Pours a dark brown from the bottle with thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma of dark fruits, sweet vanilla, molasses, and a hint of dark chocolate. Taste follows, big and complex, but not the best balance. Good stuff.
