Had this at the 2012 Great American Beer Fest in Denver, Colorado. Nice bourbon and vanilla scents, taste is similar but a tad lighter and smooth.

Growler fill via Stone Store Pasadena. Nose is mostly bourbon, hints of toffee, coffee, caramel. Pour is very dark, moderate carbonation, light lacing. Definitely a monster of a porter. Palate is bourbon, coffee, hops, and dark malts. Alcohol is definitely present in this one. Very interesting brew and would love to see how this would turn out in 6 months, and then a year. If I could find it again..

Pailhead (4755) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2012
On tap: The aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and a hint of smoke (could be power of suggestion). It’s a dark brown with some orange highlights and a small beige head. The flavor starts with chocolate, black licorice, and a touch of caramel. The finish has mild vanilla and a touch oak and smoke. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

hopscotch (9082) - 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!

At the L.A. Beer Week opening day at Stone-Pasadena. Pours a dark black. Lots of bourbon on the nose but the taste is more a balance. Not much smokiness here but very smooth with a bit of vanilla taste to me.

On tap at The Bistro BA Festival. Pours reddish brown with a modest beige head and a bourbon and treacle aroma. There is a very bourbon flavor over a nice darkl malt base.

phaleslu (6397) - 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.

Draft to taster at FoBAB ’13. Pours a hazy dark brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, smoked malts, mild peat, mild bourbon, touches of vanilla and wood. Not crazy big, and may have suffered a bit compared to some of the other beers we were tasting around it.
