Draft at ChurchKey in DC. Dark pour with a tan head, big lacing. Nose is oaky, smokey and a hint of bourbon. Mouthfeel is nice, smokiness continues with some fun Belgian spice and just a hint of bourbon. Quite good!

(draught) cloudy deep brown, creamy fine tan head. Nose of raisin, cream, light bourbon and vanilla. Taste of banana, light whiskey, vanilla, nutty, alcohol. Medium carbonation, tasting some alcohol on the palate. Decent but wish it was richer or smoother.

On tap @ Stags Head. Deep brown/black with a small frothy tan head and notable lacing. Huge aroma of bourbon, plum, vanilla, and roasted malt. Taste is similar with notes of bakers chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, and slight booziness. Nice creamy mouthfeel and dry slightly bitter finish.

Terminus (3634) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Tap at City Beer in downtown SF-June 2012-pours deep brown almost black with a froathy tan head. nose is sweet foregin stout, with sweet vanilla and oak. WOW! crazy roasty chocolate vanilla flavors, like an ice cream cone! fantastic! rich lush body, especially for this style. never becomes viscus. A fairly complex brew however, i wish i had a bigger sample (6 oz). I was not a fan of City beer-over hyped and over priced!

brokensail (16328) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 15, 2012
The pour is a very dark brown color with a creamy off-white head. Nose is heavy on the roast with light bourbon aroma (more oak than anything). Lightly peppery with a hint of fruit, mostly banana. There is just a touch of coffee. The flavor has an interesting smokiness to it, perhaps from the char of the barrel? Mild bourbon and vanilla notes, some dark fruit, pepper, and lots of roasted malts. A hint of bitter chocolate, some banana, and a bit of booze.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2012
On tap at The Map Room. Pours a cloudy, darker brown body with a few amber highlights around the edges. Finger-width, dense and creamy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is big bourbon and wood with a moderate roast, a light vanilla, a touch of dark chocolates, some dark fruits, and a light Belgian yeast. Flavor is similar. Big bourbon and wood up front with a bit more of a dark chocolate and moderate roast backing. Some vanilla in the middle with a light dark fruit and Belgian yeast hint. Bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate lead this into the finish where it ends pretty dry with a medium-light roastiness, some wood, and a bit of a cookie malt sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a pretty creamy, medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice beer. Lots of bourbon, wood, and vanilla with a solid chocolate, moderate roast, light dark fruit, and touch of Belgian yeast. Highly enjoyable.

j12601 (9891) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2012
On tap at Barcade when we all went there for Euguenes visit. Pours a dark brown to black with caramel tones throughout under a thin beige to tan head. Bourbon, wood, roast, vanilla pudding on the nose. Medium to thick bodied, bourbon and sweetness. Bourbon, wood, roast, warming alcohol, but never harsh. Very smooth with vanilla, wood, and long roast and chocolate. Long sweet bourbon and vanilla with wood into a dry bitter oak finish.

pilgrimoutlaw (888) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2012
On tap at TnD and served way too cold. Pours opaque black with moderate black head. Smell is all bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Flavor is the same with a little roast/toast. Taste is moderately bitter. Body is relatively light and creamy. Much less intense than say, Kentucky Breakfast Stout. A decent beer, but I think I prefer the plain Allagash better.
