Keg at CBC Clerkenwell, Pizza Port tap takeover. It pours a deep black color with a small brown head. Aroma is intensely bourbon, with vanilla note, coffee and chocolate. Aroma is mellowed out compared to the regular Night Rider, with the barrel softening the bitterness. Creamy on the palate. Good.

Draught @ Pizza Port, Carlsbad, CA
Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, vanilla, oak, alcohol, chocolate and licorice. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, vanilla, oak and roasted finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

On tap at the Carlsbad brewpub. A black one, with a tan head. The aroma is pretty much as the regular Night Rider, but with vanilla and bourbon. Sweeter on the palate, at least it feels so. Boozy and full bodied, with a nice carbonation level. Some warmth. A nice one this as well, but I prefer the regular edition. 130813

JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2013 On tap at Pizza Port in Ocean Beach. Pours black with one finger khaki head, good lacing. Smells of big bourbon, booze, vanilla, oak, dark chocolate, coffee and burnt malts. Taste up front is bourbon, vanilla, oak and burnt malts, coffee and dark chocolate finishes on the back end. Let this warm up and the flavors really shine. Excellent beer!

Pp Bourbon Barrel Night Rider Spring ’12 and Winter ’12: Draft. Superb stuff, big warming flavor with creamy, bourbon heat, brown sugar, dark and milk chocolate. Big mouthfeel and long, coating finish. Just decadent with all the right heft of the barrel aging. Always worth having. 4.4.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2013
At Avery Strong Ale Fest 2013--black pour with a khaki head. Boozy chocolaty aroma with sugar-cane-rum, dark chocolate, gentle roastiness, and oak. Flavor is pretty bourbony but without a lot of booze heat. Flavor has molasses, sugar cane bourbon, deep chocolate and a light, dry finish.
