Leighton (17227) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2013
Tap at the brewery during RBWG 2013. Pours clear brown with a fine, beige cream head. Pretty tasty stuff overall, medium to big sweetness but not cloying, light woody dryness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Pretty clean for such a big boy. Good bourbon and cocoa. I like it.

Bottle @ GT’s Cat Cabana. Thanks to Dr. Owl for this one. Black our with no head to speak of. Bourbon, vanilla, and brown sugar. Some chocolate, molasses, and a bit of dark fruit on the nose. Lightly vinous. Flavor is nicely sweet and fairly heavy on the bourbon/barrel. Some vanilla, brown sugar, and chocolate cake. A bit of molasses and dark fruit sweetness as well. Light roasted malt flavor. Pretty decent.

Dogbrick (10736) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Sample at GABF 10/03/2014, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Pours black with a medium foamy light brown head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lace. Aroma of bourbon, roast malt and chocolate. Medium to full body with flavors of oaky bourbon, coffee and malt. The finish is oaky with a bourbon and malt aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

hopscotch (10523) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2013
Draft... RBWGJAX2013... Pours black with a mid-sized, creamy, cappuccino head. Good retention. The aroma is a swirl of coconut, vanilla and fudge. Full-bodied and velvety with airy carbonation. The bold, acrid flavor supplies intertwined notes of burnt mocha and blackstrap molasses. There is a long, slow fade of the hearty flavors rather than an abrupt finish. In my book, this brew pulls up just shy of being world class. Excellent!
