On draft at Churchkey DC on innauguration night. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of vanilla and oak. Luscious vanilla, white grapes and toffee. Wow. Fabulous.

Pouring at the Night of the Barrels at Extreme Beer Fest. Pours a deep garnet brown with a medium sized dense tan head. Warm brownies, chocolate, cocoa, bourbon and wood on the nose. Chocolate, cocoa, spicy. Plum and prune, tart and lively, very cool. Warm bourbon and gentle oxidization into the finish. Tasty stuff.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Draft at Churchkey. Black pour with a vivacious beige head. Nose and flavor bring serious character from the barrels, including port, madeira, and other digestif type wines most prominantly. Flavor includes this with a slight lactic tang, vanilla, definite sweet chocolate. Big flavor, pretty smooth in body for 9%. This is damn good.

Travlr (21641) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Draft. Almost black, brown head, solid lacing. Aroma of rich vanilla, cocoa, subtle spiked/Irish coffee. Taste is rich, sweet vanilla, mokka coffee, brandy, port wine. Delicious.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2011
On tap at Deep Ellum - Allston, MA. Big bourbon (?) and oak nose mingled with the dense sweet cream, cherries, brandy, and fruit dark, rich porter note. Rich, creamy, texture, silken and sweet. Refined, elegant and well-melded. Easily one of the best meetings of barrel and beer. Eminently integrated. Suave and tight. Note: I later learned this was the Utopias-aged version, not just an "oak-aged" version.
