Draft sample at FOBAB 2013. Pours a cloudy, deep brown color with a huge, frothy beige head. Notes of dark fruits, roasted and toasted and faintly smoked malts, spice, chocolate, vanilla, and oak. Medium-bodied, with moderate soft carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel. Solid beer.

douglas88 (8914) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2012
On tap in Denver for GABF 2012. Pours a nearly total black color with a small tan head. A big sweet nose of bourbon and malt. The flavor tastes like Stone Smoked Porter with vanilla and wood, a bit of heat. Not overly smoky or bourbon filled. Smooth. Good.

onceblind (8891) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Hazy dark nutty brown, nearly black, with a thin foamy light tan head. The nose is immediately a bit chocolaty but transitions to a slightly spicy tortilla dough tone and some bourbon. The flavor is like a winter spice ale, totally out of nowhere for where the aroma was. Nice dark sweet malts with a bit of Christmas spices like clove and cinnamon, a bit of raisin, and doughiness with some bourbon twinged caramel on the back end. Very balanced, oddly enough, with a small touch of bitterness throughout, without much hoppy flavor, leaving way for dark Christmas like maltiness and a smooth undercurrent of light bourbon. And is that a light touch of coffee in the finish?! Very, very good.

Ibrew2or3 (8493) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a mahogany looking body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sort of sticky sugary prunes, sweet malts, a little bit of musty earthiness and then it gets both nutty and molasses like. The taste is rich delivering an almost black strap molasses like sweetness and spiciness to go along with dark roasted malts. It then flows into sweet prune like esters and then lingering roastiness into the finish as well as a touch of booze. Nice rich brew.

TheAlum (7132) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Sampled at FoBAB 10 - 2012 (Chicago, IL). Pours a richer deep blackish hue, dark and ominous, opaque inviting hues with dark elements. Dark and inviting with roast, toast, cocoa and vanilla. Mellow oak and barrel gives some life, roasty and caramel with gentle growing smoke elements. Silky smooth nose. Initial is fuller bodied, offering cocoa and roast, earth and gentle smoke. Earth, roast, and caramel. Touches of sweetness glide over vanilla, barrel, gentle spirit and earthy smoke. Middle shows deeper flavors, silky dark malts and earthy smoke, roast. Firm barrel, vanilla and cocoa, some coffee, kiss of dark fruit. Backend and finish show lingering smoke and barrel, firm malts dont let it get overwhelming with that sweet dark malts still giving some chase. Pretty nice beer here, the smoke element gives it a good vibe and some memorability for me. Nose is a touch lacking in strength, but the beer is quite nice.

The flavor starts with chocolate, black licorice, and a touch of caramel. The finish has mild vanilla and a touch oak and smoke. Its medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.
