This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black colored body. The mild aroma was roasted malt. with a lingering mild roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of roasted malt toasted malt bourbon and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Bronused by dr owl. Thanks! Dark dark dark pour, small tan head. Aroma of chocolate and toffee, some roasted notes, and a bit of wood. Flavor is similar. Reminds me of a brownie more than anything. Coating mouthfeel, just enough roast in this one to stop it from being cloying. Certainly doesn’t kick you in the face with barrel, especially for how light of an ABV this is.

thanks to jbruner. Dark black pour dark tan head. Huge vanilla oak aroma. Smells like a marshmello. Deep roast but not burnt. Sweet marshmallow. Thinner body than expected but at only 8%. Overall very complex and easy to drink.

Dead on. It starts with the aroma that indicates a strong porter with the bourbon notes. The beer itself is super smooth and the bourbon and wood flavors are there, but the beer itself highlights ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an opaque black on tap with thin tan head and little lacing, but a nice brown film on the glass as it goes down. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, oak, slight coffee and roasted notes, with a hint of spice on the back end. Taste is really complex as well, bourbon and vanilla up front, chocolate and dark fruits in the middle, a nice alcohol and bitter finish. Great beer, the best I have had from Intuition.

On draft at Green Room. I was very happy to see this one still around! Pours a dark stout brown with a tan head. Nose is bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, booze, and spices. Flavor is similar with chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, and coffee, with the spices somewhat lessened in the flavor. Nice barrel flavor to this one without knocking me off of my chair. Medium in body and delicious all over the place.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 On draft (luckily) on 1/23. Pours dark brown with thin tan head, good retention on the lacing. Nose is bourbon, chocolate, and roasty. Taste is very balanced. Vanilla, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and the bourbon just smooths it all out. Palate is much improved from the last batch. Best stuff they’ve put out yet.

Growler shared by Tim and Rachel up @ Proof. Blackish pour with thin light brown head. Roasty milk chocolate aroma. Taste is cocoa with light bourbon vibe (a good thing for me). Nice thin to med texture. Finishes tinny and bitter. Good.

12/7/11. Growler thanks to Tim! Black pour, maybe dark brown under light, under a small tan head that sticks. Rich aroma of milk chocolate and a touch of coffee with alcohol, a bit of bourbon, and cinnamon/spice of some sort. Slightly sour flavor at first with lingering chocolate and coffee. Time shows milk chocolate and a hint of barrel character, but it’s subtle. Not bad!
