Black pour with a thin fading off white head. Gigantic nose with loads of bourbon and sugary vanilla oak. Flavor has loads of bourbon and sticky dark roast malt, a bit of molasses, loads of charred oak, touch of coffee, dark earthy sweet malt and more bourbon.

Dogbrick (9824) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Sample at Hay Merchant in Houston. The beer is a very dark brown color with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, oak and vanilla. Medium to full body with flavors of oaky bourbon, chocolate malt and vanilla. The finish is roasty with a charred malt and bourbon aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Tap at the Meddlesome Moth, courtesy of bman1113vr. Dark ruby pour. Nose is vanilla, oak, bourbon, fantastic nose, very complex.... leather, coffee, earth. Flavor is tannic, oak, bourbon, vanilla, caramel. Tons of bourbon barrel on this, really solid! The mouthfeel is a bit disappointing, as it’s a bit watery.

On tap @ the Common Table. Near black pour, small amount of tan head. Almost no roast to be found in the aroma with vanilla and tons of bourbon. Flavor is slightly fruity with more bourbon and a chocolatey finish.

On tap at the Common Table. The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is very heavy on the oak with some bourbon and vanilla notes. There is no doubt that this is a barrel-aged beer. The flavor is more of the same with a few additions. I get a little roasted malt and chocolate, but once again there is a ton of flavor imparted from the barrel aging. I get a lot of vanilla, maple, oak and some cinnamon. A very tasty mix of flavors. Medium mouthfeel and low to medium carbonation.
