brokensail (12772) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (12569) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
Bottle split at Pedro leaving drinks, from an IP trade, as 007 24/04/15. Pitch black with a decent dirty tan head that retains well. Nose is rich roast, spice, bourbon strains, charr, treacle toffee, chocolate. Taste comprises cocoa powder, big bourbon strokes, treacle toffee, charr, chocolate fudge, malt. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a subtle booze streak. Decent BA impy, bourbon not so subtle at times but a pretty balanced affair all told.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Sample at GABF 10/03/2014, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. The beer is a brown-black color with a medium khaki head that recedes gradually. Partial top ring of lace. Bourbon, vanilla and malt in the nose. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky vanilla, bourbon and chocolate malt. The finish is roast malt and bourbon. Pretty good overall.

651mL at the RBWG after party in the hotel lobby. Thanks to Dan! Pours a deeper black with higher carbonation, webby sheets of lacing. Nose is malted milkshake powder, cocoa mix, vanilla, mild savory steak fat. Taste is cookie, cocoa powder, peppercorn, "pickle" in the notes but I’m not sure if I trust that being the final beer after a massive tasting. No palate faults. Fun to try.
