Huge thanks to tpd975 for the 22 bottom-filled "growler." Shared with my bro-in-law last night.

Dark black pour that has plenty of carbonation and a moderate head upon initial viewing. I should say this has held up like a champion for 9 months out of the keg.

Fudgy brownie and bourbon in the nose. Such a decadent whiff that only gets more intoxicating as it warms. Plenty of vanilla tossed in as well. Just superlative!

This tastes even better than it smells. The bourbon is prominent in the way that it's so smoothing. I've never had Palm Ridge before but I'm signing up for their newsletter going forward! While there is plenty of whiskey in the upfront, it seems more subtle than previous reviews. For whatever the reason, this is exactly what I was hoping for. Coconut, brown sugar, chocolate syrup, a slight roastiness and hints of maple creme all reveal themselves at different times. This seems like it could be a hybrid between Berserker and Kate.

I really can't add much more than that. It's a crime that this isn't available to the masses. Barrel-aging at it's best to a base beer that is simply remarkable.

32oz growler, sampled at the Ebenezer's Night of the Great Thirst campfire last summer; just now getting around to uploading my notes. Thanks to whoever shared this!

A: Black body, brown head, spotty tan lace. Ok.

S: Bourbon, vanilla, coconut, smoke, dark chocolate. Really good, but a little muted.

T: Sweet and sour, with Bourbon, lactic tartness, and oak. Metallic finish. Disappointing, but drinkable.

M: Medium-to-thick body with creamy carbonation. Good.

O: Infected, but lightly enough to be drinkable, and the nose was still excellent. Really glad I got to try this, but bummed it was an off batch. Will revisit if I get the chance.

Cheers!

A: Black motor oil appearance with a khaki head & decent lace. Good head retention.
S: Dark roasted malt, tart sour cherries on the nose.
T: Malt bomb of flavor and booziness but very tart notes follow consistent with infection.
M: Smooth thick chewy body. Decently carbonated.
O: It is a shame this was infected. Will have to taste this on the premises to get the best experience.
