GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 21, 2010
Draft at ChurchKey. Pours a deep, clear brown with an excellent creamy, light brown head that has very good retention and excellent lace. Aroma is muted at first- as it warms and is swirled around you get massive bourbon, some diacetyl, maple candies. Taste is massive bourbon atop a very dry base beer that goes chalky on the palate fairly quickly.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2010
UPDATED: APR 20, 2010 2009 22 oz. bottle via trade with ksurkin - Pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head. Very light lacing. Aroma is oak/bourbon, lightly roasted malt, and light chocolate. Lots of bourbon in the flavor. Maybe just a little to much for a nice balance. Smooth, but oaky finish. A good beer. Thanks Ken.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Quite pronounced bourbon aroma with a good dose of brown sugar, rum, vanilla beans and a hint of licorice root. Flavor has a round, mellow vanilla flavor layered over the dark roasted malts of the porter that makes for a very pleasant harmony on the palate.

wavers1 (916) - Notown, California, USA - FEB 19, 2010
thanks to ksurkin for this rarie! pours a transparent brown with a pourous light brown head. aroma has a lot of lager-y yeast, touches of oak and vanilla, raw cacoa powder, and a punch of raw bourbon. the taste has a good bit of bourbon, and it is hotter than the mere 9%. notes of choclate are subdued by the slightly astringent bourbon qualities. the body is medium full and pretty creamy, but a bit more fullness could go a long way. i think i should have waited a year on this one, will probably be a bit nicer then.
