Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2012
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 .. . .

brokensail (9935) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 29, 2012
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.

SPDickerman (881) - Texas, USA - APR 12, 2012
Pours pitch black with a finger of creamy tan head. Smells of rich chocolate and bourbon, with hints of vanilla as it warms. Taste is chocolate bourbon, literally. Full-bodied with a thick, smooth, creamy texture and super soft mouth-carbonation, Karbach (Buffalo Trace) Bourbon Barrel Aged Hellfighter finishes with a light warming bourbon alcohol effect.
