Beaverfest. Day 1. Keg. Clear brown beer, small tan head. Smooth palate, fairly dry. Smooth dry dark malts. Dry thin dark chocolate malt. Touch of coconut. Mellow dark fruits. Barely there. Light dry finish brings a little spice. Nice flavour but the body is thin and dry.
Keg at Beavertown Extravaganza 2017. It pours opaque darkest brown with a small light tan head. The aroma is rich, sweet chocolate caramel, toffee, millionaires shortbread, crunchy, slick, oily, maltesers and cocoa. The taste is slick, sweet, roasted malt, maltesers, mars bar, chocolate, toffee, oaky bourbon, toasted brown sugars, booze, earthy coffee, damp wood, leather and light spice with some alcohol warmth through the finish. Full body and fine carbonation. A bit earth and woody after a while. Decent enough, but it didn't wow me. mcberko (19837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2017
500mL bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is loaded with toasted coconut upfront, followed by bourbon barrels and plenty of alcohol. Flavour is along the same lines, with bourbon barrels, vanilla and light coconut. Heavy and well-balanced, with lots of depth. Excellent. beerplace (2314) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2017

Sample at What The Funk!? on 10/04/2017. The beer pours black with some brown around the edges, and a medium thick tan head that diminishes gradually to a dense film. Patchy lacing. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malt, chocolate and coconut. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, chocolate malt, toasted coconut and vanilla. The finish is oaky and roasty with a bourbon and malt aftertaste. Good beer all around. The_Osprey (9690) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2017
September 2017 - Keg at Beavertown Extravaganza. As 'Alesong Bailey's Joy'. Opaque black, foamy brown head leaves light lacing. Aroma is roast malts, slight coffee, soil and ash. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is earthy, leather, cocoa nibs and dark chocolate with a slightly salty dimension. Tasty.

(En fût à la source): Bourbon et oxydation en quantité modeste, noix de coco moelleuse, chocolat au lait et un bon flot sucré. Somme toute élégant.
