Bottle share at RBB. Pour is murky brown with a small tan head which fades quickly. Notes of cocoa powder, vanilla extract, roasted nuts, all spice, and a bit of dark fruit. Finish is very boozy with added notes of molasses and toffee.

750 ml bottle sampled at the RB Best Awards. Thanks to whoever shared this one. Pours a hazy deep amber brown color with a small beige ring for a head. Notes of vanilla, caramel, bourbon, brown sugar, cocoa, cake, dark fruits, and toasted nuts. Thereís a very slight tang in the flavor. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, boozy mouthfeel. Fun one to try and itís still very good - although itís not going to get any better.

[1/30/16] Bottle sample at the Encomium bottle share, after RateBeer Best awards ceremony at Hyatt Vineyard Creek Hotel in Santa Rosa. Thanks everyone who shared bottles! Murky brown. Bourbon, vanilla, malt, cookies, some dark fruits. Sweet.

joeneugs (5269) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle at RBWG. It pours a dark brown color with an off white head. The aroma is nutty with some almond-like oxidation notes. Toasted malt. The flavor is very nutty with strong cocoa and nice supporting notes of dark fruit. Fig, dates and maybe some sherry. Another one that seems to have done well with some age. A good sipper.

750ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a bit of head. Bourbon balances so nicely with the malt and cocoa.

The was a bottle pour while on the RBSG bus. It poured a rich dark brown with a tan head. Nose is very rich with toffee, sugar, bourbon, and wood. Full body. Smooth mouth feel. Flavor is full of spices and toffee. Really really good.

Sarlacc83 (1700) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle on the bus, from, I think Jacob. Thanks! A: Brown/mahogany body with a solid cappuccino head. N: Toffee, caramel, bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar, and more than a fair amount of prune and raisin. T: Sweet and not cloying. Not at all bitter. M: Medium body with a lack of alcohol presence - which is impressive at 13% ABV. O: A really enjoyable beer that I hope the Bruery remakes. This is potent stuff, but the barrel is very well-integrated. (I suppose it helps that itís aged out a bit, too.)
