(En ft Beachwood BBQ Seal Beach - Version Ridgemont Estates): Un caramel lgrement fum qui senvole avec la chaleur de lalcool. Le bourbon est insistant mais les crales rsistent mme si le corps est un peu mince.

radio_nowhere (1423) - Maryland, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Draft at their Brevard Brewery served in a rocks glass; deep murky darker amber color with very thin light tan head. Aroma notes of whiskey, heavy malt sweetness, caramel, dark fruits, vanilla and oak. Taste adds softer bourbon hit, toffee, brown sugar and some earthy hops. Heavy body, low carbonation, creamy, rich with lingering malty whiskey finish. Huge beer almost border lining on too much, but in the end the whiskey/chub fight works out.

[ Keg ][ 10oz ][ Neighborhood SD ][ $8 ][ Chalice ][ 4.11.15 ]
>> Deep maroon pour, great beige lace. Intense fudge, butter cookie, thick dessert nose...buttercream frosting. Taste is rich, spicy, woody, black pepper, brown sugar. Dense, lots of sugar- somewhat sickly finish. Thick bodied, oily, warming. Not my style but wife tanked two 0_0

Murky dark cocoa brown with a foamy beige head. Boozy brown sugar bourbon nose with sweet cake like vanilla and chocolate. Wonderful chocolate cake flavors with vanilla and coconut abounding, with lots of brown sugar boubon and sweet chocolaty oak. Outstanding.

Sample @ Brewvival 2014. Deep hazy amber pour with a small head. Rich malty nose. Brown bread, cherry fruit leather, toffee. Smoked wood and earth. Similar flavor. A bit of hot treacle and toffee. Burnt brown sugar. Mild tart fruit accents. Full body, a touch boozy.

This review is for the whiskey barrel aged version that was served at Hunahpus day 2014. On draft and poured into Hunas day souvenir taster glass. Cola brown and clear with thin tan head. Smells of malt, whiskey, wood, coconut, caramel, and toffee. Strong barrel notes come on the taste with coconut, wood, and vanilla leading the way. Malt, peat, caramel, and brown sugar come mid-palate with moderately strong sweetness. Boozy burn on the swallow. Medium-full body, sticky thick texture, nearly flat carbonation, boozy sweet finish.

Draft at Vine and Barley Palm City - pours dark brown. Smells of oak, vanilla, bourbon, and malty sweetness. The taste is sweet with a malty backbone, plus some bourbon flavor. Solid!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
