On tap at the 2010 installment of Stogies and Stouts pouring very stouty looking with semi creamy tan head. The aroma is a bit chocolate, a bit vanilla and maybe some caramel. The aroma is a little on the light side making it difficult to pick out the competing aroma notes. The flavor however isn’t at all light. It starts out with chocolate malts and burnt malts but they’re sort of semi sweet. Just after that a fruitiness surfaces with sweet grapes and dates. By midway a caramel sweetness overwhelms the fruit notes into the finish. I didn’t get any wood treatment anywhere in this. Still, its Wake n Bake, tasty stuff.

draft/cask at Brewvival as Dugout. finally got to try this one after missing it 3 times in last couple months. pours a deep black with a thick, rich tan head and sticky lacing. aroma is simply wonderful with tons of fresh roasted coffee, oatmeal, chocolate fudge, sweet vanilla, oak, and a unique fruity cereal bar note. flavor, according to my notes, is a wow moment with rich chocolate cake, fresh roast coffee, vanilla custard, whiskey, and perfectly integrated bourbon notes adding a bit of spice. palate is rich and velvety smooth with mild carbonation and a long, sweet, roasted coffee finish. overall, awesome.

sebletitje (6699) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2010
Tap @ Dunedin for Stogies and Stouts ’10. So how does one of my favorite Terrapin fare? it’s insane! pours picth black, mocha head. Aroma roasted/coffee, chocolate and a light oak/wood flavor that is not overly done but really brings the W-B to a new dimension. Flavors, perfect oak aged, palate is not overtaken by a massive amount of oak but instead the aging blends very well with the base beer. Warming mouthfeel, lots of coffee, thick chocolate malt and grainy mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with light oak wood and a lingering coffee roast.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Tap at The Brick Store. Poured black with a small brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and vanilla. Full body with a smooth, creamy mouth feel. Flavor is sweet with big notes of chocolate, roast, and coffee with lighter notes of wood and vanilla. Finishes sweet. Really an excellent beer that I really enjoyed.

Draft at the Taphouse at Ghent (Norfolk, VA): Coffee and currant nose. Black pour, medium brown head, good lacing. Sharper than non-aged with pronounced currant flavor, steeped in coffee. Smoky charcoal finish. Medium body. The non-aged version is better, IMVHO.

MeadMe (1305) - Riverview, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2010
On tap at Stoogies and Stouts. A: Pours a deep dark black with no real head or lace. S: Aromas of dark roasted malt, coffee, mild chocolate and bourbon. T: More earthy than the standard version. Fresh coffee, milky chocolate, roast, and oak. There is a dash of vanilla, with a hint of bourbon goodness. Some were not fans of this beer. I liked the way the barrel played off the coffee. M: Medium in body, smooth, on the lighter side of carbonation. D: Really good. If there were not so many beers to try I would have spent more time enjoying this one.

unclemattie (4187) - Georgia, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Tap@ TacoMac, John’s Creek. Black pour. Dark brown head. Loads of earthy green coffee bean flavor. Huge coffee bean. Aroma of bourbon vanilla essence. As it warms it tastes of big vanilla and a touch of big oak barrel. Lots of oak in the finish. An already perfect beer with the perfect tweek. Awesome, Spike does it again!

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
On tap at the Brick Store. Pours dark brown/black with a good size brown head and good lace. Smells of big chocolate and coffee with some slight roasty flavors as well. Tastes of coffee and chocolate sweetness with some roasted malts and not a whole lot of wood character. Lingering dark fruit flavors. Medium/full body, good carbonation.

Appearance: Served up at the nearby Taco Mac a black body topped with a half-inch layer of dark tan froth. Smell: A nose of richly roasted malts imparting predominate notes of dark chocolate and robust coffee. Giving it some good deep sniffs, I can glean out some subtle, subdued oak wood accents. Taste: Deeply roasted maltiness boosted with a full shot of chilled Kahlua and tastes of individually-wrapped dark chocolate squares. Faint, smooth hint of vanilla and even some spicy oakiness. Ponderous amount of roastiness throughout. Moderate bitterness. Touch of charred pecans nearing the end. Continuous roast character on the drying finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body that weighs heavy on the tongue. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: It’s good! Never more than a touch of the oak character emerges through the staunch, heavy maltiness, adding to the overall complexity of the brew without bowling you over in oakiness.
