bhensonb (10688) - 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.

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.

hopscotch (8776) - 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!

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.

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

Ibrew2or3 (6760) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a mahogany looking body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sort of sticky sugary prunes, sweet malts, a little bit of musty earthiness and then it gets both nutty and molasses like. The taste is rich delivering an almost black strap molasses like sweetness and spiciness to go along with dark roasted malts. It then flows into sweet prune like esters and then lingering roastiness into the finish as well as a touch of booze. Nice rich brew.
