Served in a snifter glass, this brew is dark brown with a thin brown head. Wonderful aroma of toffee, caramel, and bourbon. Smooth, creamy, and 100% drinkable. For a high ABV, this beer is extraordinarily smooth. Sweet with notes of caramel and toffee backed up with just a touch of alcohol warmth. Very good beer.

jredmond (5194) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Draft with Andrew. Pours a deep brown body with thin off white/brown lacing. Aroma is super woody, rich earthy roast and some booze. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of wood, oak and booze up front; some backing notes of spice and chocoalte. Nice porter.

valpoaj (613) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Sampled FOBAB í12 - Another beer Iíve had in the past, but just poor at rating beers. Pours deep amber - minimal head. Aroma light bourbon, caramel, vanilla, light chocolate. Flavor has some of the wood accents, sweet caramel, roasty malts and some bourbon mixed in. Not bad at all. Palate was a bit thin, even for the style. However, the bourbon was melded nicely in this one, and the lighter offering was somewhat appropriate...good, if far from great offering from Flossmoor...

On tap at brewpub, pours a very dark brown nearly black with a decent tannish head and some spotty lacing in the glass, the aroma has some decent notes of bourbon with some oak and a roastiness of the malt, the flavor has a good amount of bourbon on the front end with a sweet finish of chocolate, very balanced and nicely done, good stuff here.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2011
On tap at Fobab 9. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aromas of bourbon, caramel, molasses, vanilla, and chocolate. Flavors of bourbon, molasses, roasted malts, and some toffee. Body seemed thin compared to what I remember the base beer being. Not overpowered by the barrel which seems to happen to a lot of Flossmoors BA beers. Not bad but did not improve the base beer in my opinion.

cpetrone84 (1271) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Pours an opaque black with very little tan head. The nose is faint with the bourbon and wood forward, some sweet dark fruits and light chocolate cake. The flavor is more rich in chocolate cake, the bourbon is soft and nicely integrated, but the finish is thin and a bit empty. The body isnít bold enough to hold the barrel age but the favors are quite nice until they thin out.

draft... sounded good but just didnít work for me, the base beer didnít hold up, too thin and all Woodford, aged too long, raw bourbon, just didnít get it
