markwise (4427) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2014
On draft at Hunahpu Day. Pours a deep obsidian with an off-tan head. Nose is some roast, some bourbon, vanilla, some dark chocolate, and some oak. Flavor is similar- it’s interesting to see what the barrel did to this hoppy porter- roast, earth, some mild bitterness is still there, but there is also vanilla, oak, bourbon, and some of the chocolate character comes more to the fore. Light to medium in body and very nice overall.

Growler pour courtesy of Adam / burg, thanks. Pours a deep brownish black body with thin tan spotty lacing. Aroma is full of bourbon, oak, dark chocolate and malt. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of bourbon, chocolate, sweet caramel malt, booze and oak. Nice treatment.

hopscotch (8867) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2013
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!

Growler opens at Berliner Bash, poured a black color with aromas of roast, light earth and bourbon. Flavors are the same but mostly bourbon, light vanilla from the wood, but mostly bourbon.
