Bottle shared at Pauls Thanksgiving tasting. Pours brown with a beige head. Funky and sweet aroma with some bourbon like sweetness. The flavor has funky oak, some weird spicy notes, bourbon, and light roasted notes. A little bit messy, but somehow this worked for me.

Sample at Borefts 2016. Poured a medium brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is rich alcohol bourbon. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich sweet malt oily molasses alcoholic palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a cloudy dark brown with beige lacing. Smells solid; tart with notes of cherry, oak, vanilla, bourbon, and spices. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel. Good beer.

bottle shared by tom10101, thanks dude. pours unclear brown-reddish with a small light beige head, some retention and lacing. cacao and cherries, roasted spicy chocolate, unmistakable bourbon - loads of it, even tannic, grass, pepper, other spices. surprisingly not too boozy with a moderate sweetness. light to medium acidity - few balsamic notes and an overall nice acidity complexity. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, grassy-spicy astringent finish. just a tad roastiness missing for it to taste more like a porter in my sense, but eh, its a quite nice offering!

So there you are, tubby. Look like a bucket of lard on a bad day. You baby gorilla. Why dont you work in a zoo, and stop bothering people? Got a call yesterday from Baskin Robbins. They said that theyre down to only five flavors. Youre swelling up as I talk to you.

On tap at Stone Sourfest. Pours with a tan head over a brown body. Aroma is a bit buttery, bourbon, and dark fruits. Taste is dark fruits, a bit of raspberry, bourbon and incredibly decadent. Light carbonation.

Curtis, the brewer, was kind enough to allow me to sampled this on tap from the keg room at the brewery. This beer is completely legit. Pours an opaque, deep brown with a very frothy off white head. The nose is really good, sour mash, lactic acid, big vanilla, whiskey, brown sugar, licorice, chocolate, dried fruits. Flavor was just as good, starts with a lactic tartness which is rounded out by a mellow sweetness, oak, vanilla beans, light Belgian chocolate, some light spice. Full bodied, roasty, tart finish. So happy I had a chance to try this, its very exceptional.
