12 oz glass at brewpub. Only a 5.3 abv- really?? LOL Sharp bourbon and vanilla flavors. Well aged, authentic. Would not buy a case of this- but a wonderful tasting beer. They got this right.

On nitro tap at the brewpub in Media, PA. Pours with a red-brown body that has good clarity and highlights. Creamy tan head and a full coat of sticky lacing. Lots of bourbon an BBL flavor, partially masking the underlying porter (consumed immediate before the special version). Very good bitter-sweet balance. No sour or other off notes. Compared to the original, this i slightly more sweet, has some vanilla notes, and there is less smoke in the finish and aftertaste. Medium body and soft carbonation. Much smoother than the original.

Nitro at NWIH. Color unknown but dense nitro head. Nose is vanilla and alcohol, and malt sweetness. Flavor is very abrupt and strong. Sweet with hints of Bourbon and cocoa with alcohol burn. Flavor is all back if the tongue here.

Is a nice brew with a good bourbon aroma. Taste is a strong bourbon with a bit if vanilla and coconut. Not really my thing, but i can appreciate what they wanted.

reggiedunlop (3709) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2014
pours dark brown with a medium tan head. aroma has notable bourbon but not boozy at all...some woody smoke and caramel. flavor has vanilla and lots of bourbon but again...not boozy...mild roast and woody notes. mouthfeel is light and creamy with a bourbon/woody/earthy finish. somewhat odd but interesting...lots of elements that ever so slightly clash but not so aggressively as to be offputting.

On tap at the Iron Hill Barrel event in Maple Shade. Aroma is dark coffee, slight cocoa and a strong vanilla presence. Pours black with a large beige head. Tastes big and roasty with plenty of chocolate, cherry and malts. Has a sweet lingering roast that is perfect. Strong. Brought home a growler.

dmac (6103) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Draft at 2012 Barrels Bugs & Bourbon event. Poured a thinner looking dark brown center with lighter orange/brown edges and a foamy small beige head. Aroma is great with chocolate pudding skins, bourbon, vanilla, toast. Thinner body with average to stronger carbonation with a medium dose of heat. Flavor isnt as good as the aroma with strong alcohol notes at first, followed by chocolate and bourbon. Okay but flavor doesnt hold up to the aroma.

Draft. Dark brown in color with a small tan head. Bourbon dominates the aroma, with vanilla, oak, roast, and chocolate behind it. The flavor is also extremely bourbony. Oak and vanilla are secondary, and after that chocolatey and roasty porter flavors. Medium-bodied and boozy despite the ABV, or maybe thats just the bourbon flavor confusing me. Sorry guys, theres just too much bourbon in this one. Id like to see the base beer shine through more. Good flavors in it still though.
