CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 10/14/07: Pours an opaque black with a full-lacing froth of rich dark tan head. Sweet dark caramel, chocolate and bourbon nose is quite enticing. Body starts with good, rich viscosity for a sweet stout and low amounts of carbonation with a smooth, creamy dark chocolate and bourbon finish. Great balance and flavor with good drinkability.

auerbrau (3146) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 21, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Singular bold hazlenut and hershey’s syrup aroma, strong and crisp with some bourbon sweetness. Pours deep black, with sparse rocky tan head. Flavor fades away into a watered down, thin washed out almond and cashew concentrate with toasted bread, light coffees and where’s the barrel? Weak. Alcohol brightens, even at 7.4. Finishes oakenly dry and nutty, again. Unique in it’s singular vanilla-like nut flavors, but one-dimensional.
