A damn fine beer, I would drink it until my liver gave way. Nothing offensive at all, just beer bliss. Would get again fo sho. Deep and boozy, stone fruits, chocolate, burnt sugar, licorice, really an amazing beer.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2016 Dark pour with very little carbonation from a 2013 bottle into a snifter glass. It has mild vanilla, bourbon, and the oak barrel aroma. Taste is a mild caramel and vanilla up front that transitions to a smooth bourbon middle and finish. Top 10 beer!

tightslice (890) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 8, 2016
On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is cherries, bourbon, deep dark chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate covered bourbon cherries. Booze is completely hidden. Palate is oily and creamy. Beautifully tangy, sweet without being over the top. A perfect combination of bourbon, cherries and chocolate syrup.

nearbeer (4827) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 8, 2016
375 ml. Ebony with an enduring thin disc of cream. Aroma is whiskey, tobacco, soy, vanilla, oak and Baby Ruth candy bar. Tastes of all the same stuff, but in the reverse order of strength. Medium-Heavy body is silky smooth with an unobtrusive low-medium carbonation, and a nice balance for a night-cap style brew. I like the blended down Old version a touch better, but this is great stuff.

Cristobal37 (759) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 18, 2016
Big woody boozy aroma with chocolate mixed in. Black with thin head. Warming, whisky, peat, bitter dark chocolate. Heavy as shit. I guess sludge was the goal right? It really does look like motor oil. Palate is fine rosey whisky. Pixies blasting on the tv, sippin this, nice sometimes to drink a long baby like this instead of a session brew. Even if it is summer this one can be enjoyed anytime. It’s been so long since I’ve had plain "Old" but I’d say this is just as good with a twist nevertheless. Bomb.

tapefuzz (39) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 14, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2016 Draught. Pours black with a beige/tan head. Aroma of bourbon and chocolate. Tastes of chocolate and scotch with hints of vanilla and a port wine finish. Slight alcohol aftertaste and a thick mouthfeel. Outstanding.

Gerbeer (3080) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2016
12.7 oz bottle. Pours b;lack with light tan head. Aromas of soggy oak, sharp sweet bourbon, brown sugar, and light roasted malts. Flavors of spicy green oak, lots of bourbon, candi sugar, treacle, dark vanilla, and acidic dark malts. Boozy but really nice.

Draught at Lost Abbey/ Port Brewing Taproom San Marcos, 23.4.16. 2014 vintage. Black with a beige head. Chocolate, port wine and vanilla aroma, deep, bourbon-like taste, with lots of vanilla, sweet, and a little rum even - delicious. Smooth, full-bodied, lingering cocoa-vanilla finish.
