Impossible to believe this is Jose Marti...thin body, little to no hop presence, just some bourbon and a heavy dose of carbonation. Draft at Torst.

Bottle… Berliner Bash on the Bay 2013… Lightly-hazed, dark brown ale with mahogany highlights and a small, short-lived, creamy, khaki head. Smells like bourbon and toasted oak with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor offers a lot of bourbon - lots and lots of bourbon - and lesser notes of chocolate, carbonic black malts and hop bitterness. Burnt, bitter finish. Growler courtesy of burg326!

Tap a Philly beer week. smell is light and of bourbon. Black pour with thin tan head. Good for a porter.great thick and creamy mouthfeel. Taste leaves much to be desired. Still good, just with Ann overly strong barrel taste that consumes the beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler shared at Dark Lord Day (Munster, IN). Pours a deeper blackish brown hue, some plum glow, small tannish head dies to a film, laces small. Mellow haze, deeper brown body shows light. Aromas are some cocoa, dry roast, and mellow florals. Some oak, touches of spirit and vanilla. Roast, caramel, and a decent dryness. Touch of heat is a bit strong. Initial is medium bodied, a bit thin. Firm barrel presence, oak and some Bourbon. Oak, vanilla, and a bit roasty. Almost a dry minty spirit hit. Some nuttiness, earth. A bit richer roast, dry and cool quality as we finish up. A bit odd, a touch thin and hot. Some good flavors. Not bad.
