solidfunk (8358) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Wonderful beer. Pours black with good mocha head and lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, roast malt, some nut and some subtle bourbon notes. Looks syrupy but consistency feels more thick on the tongue than syrupy. Booze well-disguised. Finishes bittersweet. Tap at brewery.

nimbleprop (7942) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Several glasses on tap at Churchkey in Washington D.C. Served in a snifter, pours an opaque black with a soft, creamy white head. Aroma is heavy with vanilla, chocolate, whiskey, toasted malts. Flavor was very well balanced, vanilla and chocolate, wood, rum, malts, toasted grains, nuts, coffee. Full bodied without being overwhelming, light carbonation. I wish they would bottle this, but if they did Im sure it would cost $20.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 22, 2009
Hand bottle via a trade with hopdog, shared with the Dallas Crew. Pours with a tan head on top of a very dark brown body. Aroma of bourbon, wood, chocolate, vanilla, a slightly funky je ne sais quoi, earthiness, and alcohol. Taste is roast and bourbon, with chocolate notes and a woodsy element to it. Light, creamy carbonation.

bytemesis (7751) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Tap. Pours opaque black, huge tan creamy head, great lacing. Aroma is bourbon, roared malt, molasses. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, light bitter. Light body, high carbonation. Not surprisingly, if you age a bad beer in bourbon barrels, you get a bad, bourbony beer.

radagast83 (7710) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a dark, nearly pitch black color with a nice brown, quickly dissipating head. Aroma was lots and lots of wood, plenty of mellowed vanilla notes. Lots of bourbon, some mellowed roasted malts, lingering chocolate. Very smooth and drinkable for 9.5%.

Draft @ Hulmeville Inn. Dark pour with tan head. Huge bourbon notes, dark malts, chocolate and roasted notes. Barreling dominates beer.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
A Sim rate (Extreme Beer Festival): Such a subtle bourbon in the aroma which is rare for a barrel-aged beer of this kind. Smooth coconut, nuts and rich chocolate in the flavour. So incredibly subtle again for a barrel-aged beer. Wood and caramel in the finish. Damn. Absolute win!
