7/7/12. Bottle shared at my going away tasting by myself (courtesy a trade from BeerBob26). Brown pour with a small khaki head. Nice buttery coconut aroma with some bourbon, vanilla, oak, and roasted malts. Slightly sweet entry with malt, chocolate, coffee, bourbon, vanilla, and more. Quite tasty!

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 Thanks Danny! Deep amber pour with a white head. Nose is sweet bourbon, nice malts, and vanilla. Great flavor that similar to the nose and not too sweet. Pretty tasty.

22oz bottle pours a translucent, near black with one ring of white head. Nice nose, vanilla, milk chocolate, nutty, sweet, inviting. Flavor is sweet, brown sugar, vanilla, cake icing, chocolate. Full bodied, sweet finish. One note, but nice anyway.

Courtesy of Dak. It pours a nice looking mahogany with tan head. The aroma offers up pears, molasses, some roasted malts and booze. The taste is smooth and gets increasingly creamy with yummy notes of apricot, molasses, pine hops and then hints of sweet vanilla and smooth sweet bourbon. Great complexity and balance here. Wow! Well done.

Bottle; Pour is murky brown with a fine bubbled khaki head in this glass; the head is average, with modest lacing, and modest retention as well. The nose is heavy on the barrel treatment. Oak, Vanilla, Booze... and some caramel,chocolate, roast notes. This one starts off fairly one dimensional, yet seemed decent enough. As it warmed it went a bit downhill for me, revealing more of the booze than I would have liked. This one seems like an interesting take, but fairly pointless by my estimation. It does have a soft feel, but its overtaken by the barrel treatment (oak, vanilla, booze, bourbon), with some chocolate, roast, caramel notes near the finish. Not bad but.....

Bottle courtesy of noodleuser. Served in a mini snifter. Pours near black with a short tan head. The nose brings some light roast along with bourbon, roast, and vanilla. Mild sweetness. Flavor has really nice bourbon notes along with a touch of vanilla and roast. Medium body with good carbonation. One of the best Flossmoor beers that Iíve had.

tan-nut brown, no head. Nose is sweet, sugar masks leaving light grain, bark, marshmallow. Flavor is hot, cocoa and light tea, marshmallow and oxidized through finish. Thin, sweet.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2012
22oz bottle shared by noodleuser: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a stringy-lacing light tan head. Has a sweet dark caramel bourbon and vanilla oak nose with notes of dark chocolate. Starts with good fullness and dark caramel sweetness with a touch of raisin and plum complexity along with vanilla oaky bourbon warmth in the finish. Could hide its alcohol a little better, but should age well.
