Murky dark cocoa brown with a foamy beige head. Boozy brown sugar bourbon nose with sweet cake like vanilla and chocolate. Wonderful chocolate cake flavors with vanilla and coconut abounding, with lots of brown sugar boubon and sweet chocolaty oak. Outstanding.

Sample @ Brewvival 2014. Deep hazy amber pour with a small head. Rich malty nose. Brown bread, cherry fruit leather, toffee. Smoked wood and earth. Similar flavor. A bit of hot treacle and toffee. Burnt brown sugar. Mild tart fruit accents. Full body, a touch boozy.

This review is for the whiskey barrel aged version that was served at Hunahpu’s day 2014. On draft and poured into Huna’s day souvenir taster glass. Cola brown and clear with thin tan head. Smells of malt, whiskey, wood, coconut, caramel, and toffee. Strong barrel notes come on the taste with coconut, wood, and vanilla leading the way. Malt, peat, caramel, and brown sugar come mid-palate with moderately strong sweetness. Boozy burn on the swallow. Medium-full body, sticky thick texture, nearly flat carbonation, boozy sweet finish.

Draft at Vine and Barley Palm City - pours dark brown. Smells of oak, vanilla, bourbon, and malty sweetness. The taste is sweet with a malty backbone, plus some bourbon flavor. Solid!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at hunahpu day 2014. Pours a cloudy brown with muddy red highlights. Barely any head. Smell is boozey with the expected bourbon/whiskey and vanilla tones. Taste is initially bourbon with some hints of toffee and caramel. Vanilla comes through mid palate. Mouthfeel is a little sweet, as I would expect. Likely amplified due to minimal carbonation in this pour. Overall I like it better than regular old chub, not as smokey.

Aroma of big bourbon notes, strong herbaceous notes, mild toffee and raisin. The taste is bourbon, vanilla, maple, toffee, whiskey, earth, mild candied citrus. Medium bodied, slight heat.

Keg at RBWG 2014 grand tasting, thanks! Pours a clear deep amber with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of earthy grain and biscuit with a bit of barrel backing. Flavor has more bourbon up front with some dark earthy grains and a bit of biscuit.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2013
16oz growler from Beverage World. Served at around 50F.

Pours dark brown with a small light brown head that quickly fades to a wispy cap and ring.

Aroma is big bourbon, vanilla and oak up front and I guess a little Old Chub underneath. Anise, molasses, overripe dark fruit, some charred notes.

Flavor is bourbon, serious overripe dark fruit, pretty sweet, vanilla, caramel, anise, smoky, oaky, yummy.

Mouthfeel starts a little prickly but then softens up, somewhat sticky, moderate carbonation.

Big time bourbon, overshadows the Old Chub a bit, but that’s okay...this stuff is good, rich and delicious.
