4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Cigar City during Hunahpu Day 2012.
Pours a dark chocolate brown color that’s almost black with a two finger frothy beige head that slowly fades into a lasting cap/ring. Sporadic steaks and spots of lacing left behind.
Sweet boozy aroma with a strong barrel presence giving off hints of sweet, spicy whiskey, earthy oak and vanilla. Underneath, there is some faint malt notes with hints of chocolate, oatmeal and smoke.
Full bodied with an almost perfectly integrated barrel presence. Sweet, spicy whiskey and dry, toasted oak followed by chewy, sweet chocolate malt, caramel, oatmeal, faint smoke and sweet dark fruit notes. Really well balanced with an excellently masked ABV and dry finish. Excellent, one of the best beers of the day.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from unknown beer lover at Flossmoor pre-DLD evening. This beer was tasty. The biggest influences for me were some vanilla plus a hint of booze. I felt like that was a nice blend of the run and bourbon. Warmed your belly on a cool, windy evening.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
[bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Flat, deep brown pour. Sweet bourbon aroma, citrus hop and coconut. Don’t think I’ve had a beer with that kind of aroma before. Quite hoppy overall, with that lemony citrus mingling with the oaky vanilla and coconut on the finish. Some honey sweetness, too. Drank this as I was flying out of the door to head home – which is probably the worst way to sample something as complex as this

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle provided by Alex for our Sunday tasting. Dark brown with a 1/2 fingers worth of yellow head. Nose is boozy, prominently bourbon. Malt and some lactose from the milk porter. Flavor is considerably less boozy, it’s actually rather smooth. Caramel, leather, bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Big mouthfeel, light booziness, decent carbonation, and a moderate finish. Interesting beer, think I like it more than either of the BA Big Sounds.
