22oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, nuts, light wood, vanilla, slight whiskey, light brown sugar, caramel, slight smoke, and a hint of smoked meat. Poured deep amber/brown in color with a small, tan/light brown head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, wood, slight whiskey, light smoke, light vanilla, slight brown sugar, and light caramel. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt, wood, caramel, light vanilla, slight whiskey finish is slightly dry. 10.4%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

light caramel nose, gentle smoke. dark toffee, small white ring of a head. gentle and sublime smoky body that yields into more of a barrel character, some cherry sweetness.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Smokey, green apple, bourbon, some darker fruits. Darker amber brown pour, thin head, whispy rings and islands of foam. Flavors of bourbon barrel, apple, caramel, vanilla, smoked malts. Interesting balance, not overly boozy.

This beer has some issues! Very smokey and hazy, not balanced. Has a candy, licorice flavor. might be good poured over vanilla ice cream

22oz bottle from jtortorice, thanks Josh! Pours a cloudy, deep ruby-amber colored body with a finger-width, dense, tannish beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is sweet caramels, smoke, dark fruits, citrusy fruits, toffee, a light roasty earth, and some vanilla. Flavor is similar. Smokey caramels and toffee up front with some dark fruits and prunes. Some citrusy, earthy flavors come out in the middle along with a smooth vanilla, light tootsie roll chocolate, and a touch of leathery wood. Finishes dry, smokey, a tad spicy, roasty, caramel sweet, vanilla, and fairly fruity with a moderate bitterness that leaves a lengthy aftertaste. Medium-full, smooth, somewhat sticky body and creamy, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid beer. Really nice caramel, dark fruit sweetness along with a distinct smoke throughout. Can’t pick up a ton of barrel-aging, but this has a fairly nice complexity to it. Good beer.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Slightly hazy brown pour with a light tan head. Light smoke and toasted malt aroma with biscuity notes. Bitter toasted flavor with molasses. Boozy and hot.

22oz bottle pours a translucent amber brown with very little tan head. Nose is well balanced, some dopple fruitiness, booze, some smoke, some barrel, caramel, bacon. Flavor is sweet, malty, light smoke, big booze, rum, coconut. Full bodied, boozy finish.

GT2 (8159) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 8, 2010
22oz at the DC Local Tasting. Pours a clear cola ruby red with yellow cask bubbles- not much head formation. Aroma is sausage and red apple oxidation. Taste is malty, sweet cherry juice box, ash, roast, and then as it warms pretty much straight whiskey. Not fun.
