ICEatALAMO (1324) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2016
15 bottle. The pour is a murky orange/amber, with a thick head at first. The aroma is mostly that of a strong ale with a hint of booze. The taste has a ton of flavor. Not as harsh as I would have thought from the aroma or just from regular DB. The bourbon is light, but compliments it very well.

Aroma is bourbon, strong malts and a good hint of caramel sweetness. The flavor is bourbon, strong malts, mild grapefruit/hops and a mix of caramel sweetness and warming alcohol in the finish.

nearbeer (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 14, 2016
500 ml. aliased version "Southern Charred" 2015 vintage, 12.7%. Foggy copper-brown with a loose but lasting disc of bubbles. Subtler than expected nose has the anticipated notes of earthy maple-vanilla toffee, charred oak barrel and whiskey. Flavors are the same pleasant mix. Medium-heavy body has a smooth low-medium carbonation and hides the abv well. None too complex, but tasty. Dangerously large sips might be taken too easily from this nightcap style brew.
