Draft during RBWG tour. Pours dark brown to black with a medium sized khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, char, spicy notes, vanilla, coffee. Solid, but I would like another shot at this one under different conditions.

On tap. Pours a deep brown with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has an interesting combination of coffee, barrel and dark grains with a bit of a booze bite. Flavor is similar with coffee up front but a weird finish of acidic dark grains.

Best beer we’ve found that’s not an artisan beer. Great taste. Great aftertaste.

Snifter pour at the Brass Tap, pours a dark brown, almost black color, aromas of lighht coffee, vanilla, oak and some malt. Flavors are oaky up front, light ash, no bourbon, and some light roast. Nice beer overall. As I burp I get a lot of vanilla coke.
