On tap at Hunahpu day. Pours thick and black, no head. Aroma of booze, sweet vanilla, oak, toffee, chocolate. Taste follows, really sweet but this is great as a small serving. One of the most complex beers ive ever had!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In $hort: A very $weet dark-brown ale with plenty of wood barrel$. Inexplicably enjoyable
How: Bottle 750ml, $oon after the beer relea$e, $hared with friend$ under the Vermont $tar$.
The look: Brown body topped by a $mall beige head
In long: No$e i$ wood barrel$ not overwhelmed by bourbon, caramel hard candie$, other $weet $tuff. Ta$te i$ initially very $weet, coconut cake, vanilla, toffee, apple $trudel, cake glazing, more $weet $tuff… $ome bourbon too. But there i$ al$o lot$ of wood barrel$ with a roa$ted almond$ flavor and that made the exce$$ive $weetne$$ quite tolerable to me. I thought it wa$ $omewhat original and for a $weet $ipper I wa$ $urpri$ed at how drinkable it wa$. Another very limited CCB beer relea$e (only a few hundred$ bottle$ made) and I don’t under$tand why CCB make$ $o many $mall limited relea$e beer$ in$tead of making fewer beer$ but with larger bottle count, there mu$t a rea$on but I ju$t don’t $ee it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012-08-18. Very dark brown body with a small frothy brown head. 3+ Sweet aroma is pleasantly malty, modest woody character with notes of vanilla. Flavour is similar, sweet dark malty core and woody accents that are just a touch odd. Smooth medium bodied palate. Enjoyable but just okay. Bottle, Campground Brewdown 2012 shared by MaxxDaddy

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear ruby color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and dark bourbon wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy bourbon sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

The pour is dark brown with an off-white head. A little bit of roasted malt, licorice, vanilla, and toffee. Some molasses, a bit of fruit, and chocolate. Caramel sweetness, molasses, toffee, and whiskey. Light vanilla flavor, some dark fruit notes, and a touch of oak. Kind of all over the place, but enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared bottle to snifter (big thanks to daknole for this one!). Looks good; dark and boozy with low carbonation. Tastes good too; much like it smells. A little busy, but good. Mouthfeel is a little thin for how big it is. Still, damn good!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750ml courtesy of thecheeseman. Bottle 207/240. The oatmeal and chocolate on the nose was very good. Black body good head wand some decent lace. The thick oatmeal presence along with the coco stood out the most with some boose in the mix. With the alcohol presence still easy on the palate. Good brew thanks was worth the wait.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (#88) at Muckfest III shared by TheAlum...thanks Adam! - Pours with a deep brown body and a bubbly tan head. Nose is honey and sugar sweetness, leather, a bit of tobacco, brown sugar, figs, and some baking spice (allspice?). Taste is less sweet--plums, dark malt, and lots of brown sugar. A bit of whiskey as well, though I don’t get any of the rum. Too sweet for my tastes.
