VIntage 2013. Keg @ Town Hall. Deep brown pour with a creamy tan head. Nose is pretty well rounded, inviting. Dark chocolate. Mellow coffee. A bit of shag tobacco and old leather. Light vanilla. Earthy char. Mild signs of barrel aging. Flavor is sweet with a warm finish. Nice and chewy. Burnt brown sugar. Toasty malt. Dark chocolate. Full and rich, oily on the palate. Light woody heat on the finish. A sipper, but still pretty elegant. Nice.

Countbeer (6222) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle: Vintage 2012: Served in a Chouffe glass: Creamy brown head. Black body. Aroma is very vinous with loads of wood. Also some metallic, roast, berry and a hint of alcoholic chocolate. Flavour is again very vinous, some roast, berries, hint of bourbon, some mocha, again lot of wood and some raisin. Aftertaste is bitter, mocha, bourbon, some praline and berries... Low carbo, creamy soft mouthfeel, between medium and full bodied. Seems to have some ties with wild/sour ale, possibly a light infection, still drinks fine, even a bit "refreshing".

deyholla (10214) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a chestnut brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of roasted malts and dark grain with a bit of sweetness from the bourbon and a hint of smoke. Flavor has lots of roasted malts and a bit of smoke up front with bourbon and dark grains growing throughout the beer.

thomashall (707) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Tap at Town Hall. Pours dark black with foamy tan head. Aroma is strong alcohol and malts. Taste follows, too much wiskey flavor for my liking but a really solid stout.

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2015
On tap at GTMW 2014, back to back barreled aged beers at this festival, nice. Pours a very dark brown pretty much black with a thick brown head, the aroma was of heavy bourbon and oak at first with a nice amount of oak and vanilla showing too, the flavor has a heavy chocolate front end with the bourbon and vanilla showing quite a bit in the finish, big beer but still pretty good, not overly sweet.

2012 bottle. Shared with friends and neighbors. Pours black with a huge foamy head that fades normally a thick ring leaving nice webbing. Aroma is great. Dark chocolate, espresso, overripe cherries, tobacco and molasses. Tastes like it might have a slight sour infection but it sorta works. Lots of dark roast, chocolate, coffee, and tobacco mix with the sour dark fruit taste. Medium to thick body. Would love to try this fresh one day because I think there’s something a little off about this bottle.
