Scopey (10041) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle shared at Bruce’s. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is fudge, treacle, oily, wood, bourbon, vanilla, fruit cake and toasted coconut. The taste is bitter-sweet, aniseed, toasty, wood, bourbon, earth, cocoa, light vanilla, spice, warming alcohol and dark fruit in the background. Medium-full body, fine carbonation and chewy mouth-feel. Very nice on the nose, but barrel aging doesn’t improve the base beer much. Decent.

brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Dark brown -- nearly black -- pour yields scant manila lace. Good retention, though, and the lace swirls up top long after.

Heavy barrel character, super dry, pretty complex finish as it descends. Dark fruits, sweetness from the barrel, bone dry finish. Low carb. The 11% is completely hidden, even at room temp. Impressive.

mcmd (315) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours dark black, not much head. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, oak, chocolate. Taste follows suit with lots of chocolate and vanilla/bourbon barrel but not abrasive at all, smooth with extremely well hidden alcohol. Great beer as usual from CCB

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and light smokiness, light oak and vanilla and bourbon, and a little dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the porter and barrel. Smooth texture. A good beer.
