brystmar (1189) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Chocolatey, roasty, mellow bourbon. Smooth and drinkable; far better than the (often infected) Hellshire I & II.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Draft sample at FOBAB 2013. Pours a deep, opaque brown with a small tan head. Roasted malts, molasses, dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, toasted brown sugar, oak, and a hint of coffee. Medium-bodied, with a roasty, toasty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Seems like it was rich and roasty before the barrel, and picks up some nice balancing barrel sweetness and toastiness. Really well-done barrel aging.

Thinner brew, dark malt flavors and some spice, hot, boozy and bourbonny as well.

Bottle @ The Croydonia Tasting. Massive thanks to Colin for the northwestern hookup! The pour’s deep brown with a small head. The nose is boiled oatmeal. Caramel. Mellow chocolate. Creme brulee dessert. The taste is cocoa. More mellow oatmeal and caramel. Lightly roasty. Medium body. Very drinkable. Overall, quite tasty. Not barreled to within an inch of its life.

Theydon_Bois (7924) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle at the Croydonia Tasting, picked up in Newport Ave Mkt - Bend, 13/07/13. Mid black with a thin tan head which dissipates to a swirl and edgeing. Nose is roast malt, chocolate, vanilla, oaky notes, brown sugar. Taste comprises vanilla chocolate milkshake, molasses, demerara sugar, subtle bourbon notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry in the execution. Well balanced and easy drinking fayre!
