750, capped. Thanks, J! Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and creamy tan head. Brown sugar and a bit of fruit on the nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Body feels like a barleywine but is not cloying or goopy at all. Finish goes quite dry. Surprising in many very nice ways.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Mahogany colored beer with a thin khaki head. Sweet vanilla, bourbon, and caramel. Big time brown sugar and dark fruits. Nice toffee/peanut brittle, too. Kind of a walnut flavor and some charred oak. Good sweetness of caramel, brown sugar, and vanilla. Light booze. Definitely on the sweet side.

[2/26/15] Draught at Upright Brewing in Portland. Dark amber-brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of caramel, wood, dark fruits and some alcohol. Sweet flavor, caramelly, with dark fruits, lots of wood, a licorice hint, a chocolate hint and a boozy finish. Medium to full-bodied.

deep caramel brown pour, off white head. Man this is good. Rich caramel and toffee, whiskey, rich vanilla, oak, brown sugar. Hints of hops but this beer is smooth and really nice to drink.

750mL bottle sample courtesy of dak, thanks. It pours with a murky deep amber body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up smooth notes of spicy oak, subtle booze, some pine hops and then various mild sweet molasses to malt notes. The taste is very much like the Bull Rush version but this barrel treatment has rounded out and smoothed over the whole experience. I get smooth sweet molasses and malts blending with pine hops and spicy oak. In the background murmurs some soft booze notes. This version also seems like a little richer and deeper experience. Nice! Age has done this wonders.
