GIJOE (1000) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 2, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2013 Pours black as used motor oil with a thick pillow of mud brown head. Aroma is toffee, licorice, and malt. Flavor is mildly sweet up front with an explosion of complex flavors upon breathing. Spices, chocolate, hint of coffee, maybe some clove, and a nice boozy warmth. Texture is thick and creamy with lively carbonation. Very good brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draught at Drakes Taproom. Black with a fair bubbly head. Rich, chocolatey After Eight aroma. Tasty, chocolatey, boozy, minty. Smells like Christmas pudding. Has a lot to it.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - APR 11, 2013
From memory: draft. Overall, a rich, layered, and concentrated beer, with good balance. Obvious oak influence, though not overbearing.. Layers of rich chocolate, vanilla, roasted coffee beans and hints of whiskey. Solid. A one and done kind of beer, due to the overall richness on the palate. Well made. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

On tap at Drakes poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting brown head. Aromas of bourbon, oak, roastiness, toffee and fruuittiness. Palate was full bodied and smooth. Flavors of oak, toffee, fruittiness and light bourbon with a smooth lingering oaky bourbon finish.
