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. JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Growler fill from stone. Murky dark brown pour, small tan head. Smooth milk chocolate, sweet cocoa and vanilla, bourbon, light smoke, and a touch of dried fruit. The alcohol is completely hidden, no booze. A nice smooth, easy drinking bourbon BA beer if there is such a thing.
