Tap at Old Forge with the Campground brewdown gang - Great nose of maple syrup and oak. Taste is a bit of a let down, dark chocolate, prune some chocolate and sweet caramel, but lacking complexity. jercraigs (10867) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
2012-08-18. Black body with a modest smooth tan head. 4+ relatively mild flavour, quite sweet, dark malt vanilla, mild bourbon, muted roast. 7+ Aroma is similar, quite sweet, vanilla bourbon, mild dry dusty roast. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate. Decent, but a touch one dimensional - needs the base beer to support the bourbon a bit more.

Gentle cocoa, soft roast and toast. Sweet cocoa, malt and roast. Cocoa, light bit of wood and sweetness. Toast, nice and easy drinking. Rather subtle. jredmond (8626) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Draft at the Old Forge with the RB crew. Pours a deep brownish black body with light chocolate tan lacing. Aroma is bitter chocoalte, malts and a light roastiness. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of earthy chocolate, light burnt wood, and finishes somewhat bitter. You don’t really get any bourbon aging in the aroma or flavor.
