Draft at Brouwers. Nose is bitter pine and caramel with a subdued wood . Taste is smooth wood wrapped around a nice bitterness with some fruity notes. I swear there’s a little prickle of spicy chile in there as well. Interesting beer.

Poured from the bomber from tavour. Thin head, little lacing. Aroma is of alchohol. Flavor isn’t to much alcohol, the oak comes through, some smokey. Pretty woodsy though. Pretty good. I just burped up some dark cherry flavors. Yum.

Draft at Beveridge Place Pub. Yeah, this beer is a total mess. I really want to root for the local, too. Murky brown with a thick, creamy, webby tan head. Big sour brune ale nose: tart and puckery, along with some earthy wet leaves. Creamy medium body. Grain husk, earth, wet leaves, saurkraut, and a few other things that don’t belong make up the mid-palate.

Brownish body with an off white head. Served from tap into a tulip. This was medium bodied with a smoky nose. The palate was figs and dates with smoky notes from the Bourbon barrel. Not as intense as some barrel aged beers.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a lightly hazed, richer brown colored body with a finger-width, creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is bourbon and sweeter caramels with some chocolate, a moderate vanilla and oak, and touches of roast. Flavor is similar. Lots of bourbon and sweeter caramels and toffees up front. A good amount of wood, some chocolate, vanilla, and earth before this finishes dry and woody with lots of bourbon and sweeter caramels as well as a touch of roast. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-thin body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid barrel-aged beer. Lots of bourbon and wood with a sweeter malt backing to balance. Nice one.
