nearbeer (4915) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2016
650 ml. bottled 11/06/2015. Lightly hazy copper body with a quarter-inch disc of beady bubbles on top. Nose is earthy potato, cocoa, toffee, fig and a hint of booze. Flavor is sourish orange toffee, cocoa, wood, booze, vanilla and occasionally some unsettling earthy potato. Long finish has some lighlty minty herb. Medium-heavy body has medium-plus carbonation that remains mostly smooth, and a drinkable balance. Shows a bit more than 8.2% abv and is a major disappointment compared to the base beer I had a few nights ago.

Strykzone (6745) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Sampled at ESBLS. Mid brown with an off white layer of foam. Oh wow. Complex and unique flavors. Camomile, earth, floral, salt, fruit. I like this.

rdixon77 (2358) - Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Reddish-brown colored. Nice coffee and oak addition to a solid brown base. Sweetened up considerably, but that works for a winter beer. Nice to see a seasonal that doesn’t just booze and spice up the place.

LeRoytheAlien (55) - Kennesaw, Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2015
The bourbon adds a perfect lagniappe to the coffee, oak, roasted malt and lactic finish. I can't wait for this to become a regular thing.
