bottle @ Fifty West / Cincinnati OH --- Hazy brown color with a head cover and light splashes of lace. Taste is big caramel malt and toffee and vanilla that builds to a strong alcoholic finish that I think has a little bourbon (or is that licorice?) in it. So big that sipping seems to be the only way, but what a nice brew in hand with the guys on the porch on a rainy night. Really good.

Dogbrick (7575) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy brownish-orange color with a thin off-white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and bourbon. Full-bodied and syrupy with a boozy character and flavors of caramel malt, fruit and hops. The finish is sweet with a bourbon and charred malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma and flavor: vanilla, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, golden raisins, dates, toast, a little oak, and some warming bourbon late. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, malty, coating mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The barrel really complements this beer well. Nice sipper.
