On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad in Carlsbad, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, wood, and bourbon. Taste is much the same with an alcohol kick and a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is really tasty and drinkable.

a: Black with a very tan lacing around the edge of the glass

s: mainly bourbon and a strong chocolate nose. Small hints of vanilla

t: The bourbon is fairly strong tasting, but not in an intense heat way, very smooth. Some bitterness and herbal notes come in from what I suspect are the hops, which is a pleasant surprise from a blend of bal aged beers. This gives the beer spiced rum notes, which I find very enjoyable. There is also a lot of chocolate, and a little bit of vanilla and oak.

m: Sharp carbonation which helps with the drinkability. There is a little alcohol burn, but very good for the style and ABV. Overall a creamy and smooth, this beer goes down really well

o: I wish I could have had more than the one glass. Though this beer makes for a great sipper, it is also an easy drinking beer.

Cheers to Bagby and all the great things he has done for PP and SD. May his future endeavors continue to kick ass

I heard this was pretty good, so I flew down to San Diego for a few hours to tick it.

Appearance: Dark crimson body with a low level of carbonation.

Smell: Vanilla and dark fruit (dates, prunes), bourbon -bals with a smattering of brandy. Brown sugar, faint booze. Smells absolutely delicious.

Palate: Leather and tobacco, dates, vanilla and sweet, toffee-like bourbon, a touch of cocoa and roasted malt. Medium-full body with low carbonation. An interesting blend of flavors - comes off as a barleywine/imperial stout hybrid, reminiscent of Firestone 10.

Overall: Another excellent beer from some of the best brewers in the world.

Draft at Toronado San Diego.

Pours a dark brown color with a one finger off white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Streaks and large spots of lacing left behind.

Slightly boozy aroma with a subtle barrel prence and a decent balance of roasted malt, dark fruit and spice. Some toasted oak and bourbon sweetness along with some pepper, vinous dark berries and a slight medicinal character.

Medium bodied with a nice balance of barrel character, dark fruit, zesty spice and sweet malt notes. There's some nice bourbon flavor but it isn't hot or overpowering, allowing the other notes to come through. Underneath the bourbon there are hints of vinous dark berries, peppery spice, roasted malt and alcohol sweetness. I'm also picking up a syrupy, medicinal character but it's subtle and doesn't affect the flavor too much. Pretty complex and nicely balanced with a well masked ABV.

Had on tap in a 8 oz. pour...

Appearance; pours a dark, dark brown, with cola colored edges, very minimal pale brown colored head that quickly dissipates to leave decent lacing and a slight ring of bubbles...

Smell; jumps right out with raisins, dark fruit, chocolate, and a slight prune kind of sweetness...

Taste; taste follows the smell quite closely (I'm definitely not complaining about that!) with the addition of fresh cherries, and a slight sweetness. Chocolate, and raisin (and am I getting notes of bourbon?) come in strong, and the layers slowly develop with each sip...

Mouthfeel; light full body, with minimal carbonation.. Smooth in the mouth, and goes down very easily, with a juicy sort of finish...

Overall; get this while you can, an absolutely fantastic beer... I don't know how long this will be around but absolutely worth trying!! A fantastic Last Stand Mr. Bagby, I can't wait to see what you turn out in the future!

Multiple glasses enjoyed at Pizza Port Carlsbad.

Pours black as can be with a thin layer of tan head. Intense barrel aromas all around. Lots of vanilla which goes really well with the chocolate. Plenty of liquor flavor as well as some molasses, a hint of licorice, and caramel. Sweet vanilla, chocolate, caramel, and molasses are amazingly intense. Tons of liquor and barrel, too. Though multiple types of spirit barrel were used, the flavor of bourbon really comes through. Full bodied with medium carbonation and smooth feel on the tongue.

Served in a baby shaker glass.

Dark dark brown, almost black. Ring of off white head that doesn't leave much lacing behind.

Smells of chocolate, raisins, plumbs, figs, some roast, brown sugar, and bourbon.

Tastes of loads of dark fruit (raisin/fig/plumb) with caramel and brown sugar, not to mention some spicey oak, and tons of bourbon.

Mouthfeel is big, heavy, thick, touch hot, but the alcohol is pretty well hidden.

Kinda like older viscosity meets an old ale. I dig it.
