brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Almost black in color with a khaki head. Wonderful aroma of coffee, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, and caramel. Very mild smoke, some oak, and good bourbon notes. The flavor has a very nice sweetness of milk chocolate, caramel, and vanilla. Bourbon, oak, and nice roasted malt flavors with subtle smoke. Excellent all around.

bhensonb (14172) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Draft at the Bistro West Coast Barrel Aged Beer Festival. Pours dead black with a foamy tan head. Aroma is so bourbon. Med + body. The flavor is so bourbon. There’s some malt/hop stuff - maybe. The finish is so bourbon. Not excessive, but a lot of bourbon. Excellent.

Kind of a meher for me, smokiness isn’t huge, bourbon adds a nice bit of caramel.

Dark brown pour. Several samples at GABF. Loads of aromas here!! Smile, tar, bourbon, vanilla, cocoa, roast. Smoke and bourbon never tasted so good together. Awesome.

hopscotch (10651) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Growler... Translucent dark brown ale with a few scattered bubbles. The aroma is a swirl of bourbon, chocolate and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with mellow carbonation. The flavor is fairly thin, but quite roasty with lots of bourbon warmth and a tannic, bitter finish. Thanks goes out to richiesd for floating this rarity my way!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Growler thanks to richiesd. Pours a clear, deep ruby to black. Little carbonation. Nose is strawberry, cheese, chocolate, blueberry. Taste is sweet strawberry, dark chocolate, mild cocoa butter slickness. Lemon tea finish- tart. Not as heavy as you would expect. Barrel character low.

phaleslu (9426) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Draft sample at FOBAB 2013. Pours a cloudy, deep brown color with a huge, frothy beige head. Notes of dark fruits, roasted and toasted and faintly smoked malts, spice, chocolate, vanilla, and oak. Medium-bodied, with moderate soft carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel. Solid beer.

Pour on tap, hazy dark brownish pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big sweet vanilla, molasses, and dark fruit into bourbon, oak, slight spice into a hint of woody, tannic, smoke notes, some slight toasted bread. Taste was a mix of oak, vanilla, bourbon into sweet dark fruit, toffee, molasses into a bit of smoke, some spice, grass, finishing sweet.
