Growler from Whole Foods in Houston.
The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a few small brown bubbles, but no real head. The aroma is heavy on the brown sugar and vanilla, with a hint of whiskey thrown in. The flavor has a lot of wood and whiskey notes, as well as a good dose of maple. The molasses and vanilla notes are also present. I get a little chocolate and roasted malt in the flavor, but this beer is all about the whiskey barrel aging. Medium to thick mouthfeel and low carbonation. Delicious.

CasK @ the Flying Saucer, Houston- 12th year Anniversary Party .. . . black .. light foam .. thin mouth, dangerous- could chug gallons of this in the desert .. . light bourbon, tar, and blackened barrel .. . more of a dark mild ale .. . . I always have thought following a javelin flying through the air could give you a pain in the neck..

Nearly black in color with soft carbonation. Intense vanilla and wood notes with a mild booziness. A nice roasted malt aroma, dark chocolate, and a hint of coffee. Just a bit of caramel sweetness. The flavor is quite nice with a nice chocolate, caramel, and roast combination along with the intense barrel flavors of bourbon, wood, and vanilla. Still a touch boozy, but enjoyable.
