Growler. Thanks Hallinghansen for the sample. Pours black with bubbles on top. Chocolate, roast, wood, vanilla and raisins. Smooth and oily. Downright tasty and delicious. Fine barrel complexity. Thanks Jacob.

an odd sour stout, the bourbon and the tartness do not work together, the infection is really weird, oh well, why does tampa infect so many beers?

Growler traded by Sean9689, thanks buddy. Pours black with a forever lasting medium light brown head. Nice lacings. Aroma is lots of roast, malt, chocolate, oak, bark, dark fruit, light hoppy, whiskey notes. Flavour is dark chocolate, roasted malt, whiskey, oak, dark fruit, bitter coffee, hops, tart cherry notes. Long coffee/chocolate aftertaste. Well balanced. The alcohol thickles in the mouth. Medium carbonation. This is great. Beerporn.

Growler with thanks to 50belair!! Pours opaque black, medium dark brown head, nice lacing. Aroma is roast, bourbon, something a bit odd, tart, funky. Flavor is the same, light sweet, light tart, medium astringence. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Ummm, infected?

500 ml swingtop growlers shared by Steve and dudeabide at Natifest- thanks, guys! Pours a deep brown, not quite opaque, with a small tan ring for a head. Looks good, but not as dark as RareR or Nooner appeared. Aroma is heavy on dark fruits- plum, berry, figs, as well as brown sugar, oak, chocolate, and a little whiskey warmth. Flavor is equally fruity, and has some vanilla, chocolate, and oak. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, sweet, fruity mouthfeel. A bit one-dimensional, and disappointing, especially compared to the Nooner.

JStax (3233) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Swingtop bottle shared at natifest. Pours a darker, syrupy black with no head. Aroma has dark chocolate, fig, red wine, and raisins. Tastes sweet and has a luscious dark fruity aspect to it that really puts it over the top. Really nice beer.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Sampled at a recent tasting. I was hoping this was gonna be epic but it turned out to be infected. The whiskey aroma/flavor was still there but it was somewhat funky, which made it somewhat hard to swallow.

Labeled Cycle Brewing, swing top at Natifest, chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla, and molasses. Very sweet, but somehow balanced. Good.

Swingtop growler to taster (thanks Steve). Looks good; a dark cola with thin tan lacing. Smells dark malt, chocolate, coffee, and red wine. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel. Ggod beer.
