Draught at Bar Hop for ’Dark Water Series 2013’. Pours a very dark brown with amber hues and a small diminishing frothy tan head. Slightly mild aroma (for the style) but quite nice, with roasted malt, notes of bourbon and vanilla, chocolate and light hops. Nice flavour is a bit boozy but not enough to detract, with roasted malt, bourbon, lots of coffee, light hops, dark fruit and a big coffee-ish roasty bitter finish. Medium bodied, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good. HogTownHarry (7085) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - APR 10, 2013
On draught at Bar Hop. Deep ruby-brown with a small tan bubbly head. Oily aroma, roast, vanilla, alcohol - taste follows, quite bitter. Think ah oily body, boozy, bitter finish. Good, but not quite my thing. A little Creme brûlée- like. solidfunk (9729) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 12, 2013
This is good stuff. Strong sense of bourbon here. Pours pretty black with some lacing. Drinks on the syrupy side. Aroma of cask, hops, musky roast malt. Carbonation just how I like it - slightly below average. Finishes a little sweet and boozy with some bitter hops. On tap at barhop. Ontbeertaster (3208) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2013
Tap, pours a dark brown, aroma was a bit bourbony and it was in the flavour as well a fair bit of vanillia quite strong, overall it was an interest brew Sammy (12995) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2013
Bar Hop dark beer event. This hits the style of bourbon aged brown beers. The Bourbon and booziness is paramount. The base beer is ordinary. So-so drinkability with this type of beer.
