Most recent release

Picked up at a local store in chicago from the shelves.

Appears dark and viscous. Very little head.
Roast, slight sweetness, strong alcohol hit from the barrel aging. Maple and chocolate. If you like the counterparts you should like this. Smooth, full, viscous mouthfeel with slight carbonation.
Very enjoyable altogether, enjoyed it much better than the other non-sour LA beers.

Pours into a Town Hall Brewery globe on 6/19/11.

Pours a dark brown with a fizzy brown head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing at all. Swirling the glass leaves a sticky resin on the glass.

Smells of lots of boozy bourbon and dark malts as well as a little fruit and vanilla.

Taste is of bourbon infused dark malts and vanilla/chocolate fruits. Taste is pleasant but the booze is very present.

Mouthfeel is light to moderate in weight. Resin sticks to the mouth and leaves a nice bitter mocha booze flavor left over.

Overall this is a good brew but the alcohol can make it tough to enjoy not only because it smashes out some of the taste but also I can't have more then one 375mL before my senses are dulled by the high ABV. Good beer though.
