On tap at LUCK. Deep brown with a decent tan head. Aroma is of whiskey, oak, chocolate, light coffee, and brown sugar. Taste is of light whiskey, wood, brown sugar, and chocolate.

Poured a murky brown with faint khaki head. Nose of sweet malt and alcohol. Surprisingly light across the palate but very nice.

Dixonian (1657) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2013
On tap at Rugby House - batch #2: I missed the first batch of this and was glad to catch this very limited 2nd batch (one 5 gallon barrel released). More time in the barrel appears to have done this some good. Dull brown brew with very little head. Nose of oak, caramel, brown sugar, earthy hops, whiskey. Taste is slightly nutty, more caramel, good amount of booze.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2013
On tap at Jack Mac’s at the release party. Dark brown to black with an off-white head. Aroma is whiskey and brown sugar - very sweet. Flavor is similar. I get some whiskey and chocolate notes up front, as well as some roasted malt and brown sugar. As the beer warms the strong woody notes begin to come through, making the beer quite tannic. Very sweet overall. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
