drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
December, 2012. On tap at Engine 15. Light amber pour with a small khaki head. Weird aroma of wood, burning, and caramel really makes this smell like buttered popcorn. Overly sweet flavor again with a weird woody caramel and popcorn aspect. Blech.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Draft at Fermentation. Deep amber pour with a thin white head that laces a bit. Aroma of wood, coconut, vanilla and booze. Flavor is very similar with a touch of spiciness and sugary caramel. Thick sweet body and a quick boozy finish.

UncleKorm (1223) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2012
On tap at Brewer’s Republic tap house. Poured hazy orange w/ a good sized white fizzy head. Aroma was sweet apple, light woody, and toasty. Flavor was bold: vanilla, caramel, dark fruits, and a strong flavor of Jim Beam, with Sweet initial flavor and a boozy finish, finishes dry. It is an interesting beer, but not one I’d want more than a few ounces of.

On tap at Porter Beer Bar. Pours a clear amber brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a note of vanilla with caramel and sweet with a hint of oak. Flavor has a good amount of grain with some vanilla and oak.

I got this on tap. For a high density beer, the alcohol was very understated (which is a good thing to me). I love the oak heaviness, without heavy caramel or coffee tones. Flavorful choice.

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear redish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, oak, tobacco and light fruittiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of oak, toffee, carmel and a hint of fruittinesds with a smooth dry lingering oak finish.

RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Pours deep reddish brown with a pillow of white head. Big oaky aroma with a bit of vanilla. Taste is all oak, vanilla, and raisins that combines to taste a bit like a grape fruit snack. The alcohol burn doesn’t hit untik its sat in the back of your throat a bit.

rhialistic (156) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2012
Poured pale orange with thin white head, aromas of vanilla, banana, berry, bread and plenty of oak. Taste of oak, vanilla, yeast, and a hint of smokiness with berry notes. Silky medium mouthfeel mellows into a dry finish. Could not taste 9.3% ABV in this one.
