Growler poured into a nonic style pint glass.

Dark brown like oil. Three quarters of an inch of solid, medium-brown foam sit on top. A sheet of micro-bubbles along with oily residue cascades down the side of the glass with every tilt.
Nose is moderate with nice aromas of vanilla, oak barrel, cola-like caramel and biscuit malt that carry through
in the flavor with some roasted malt and a small amount of woody hop flavor. Low to medium bitterness. Finishes with a little warmth.
Medium body with moderate to high carbonation. Smooth and a little creamy.
Get some.

On tap at Spokeasy Public House

A: Pours basically black with a frothy light brown head that settles to a thin layer and leaves somelightlacing.

S: Nice bourbon and toffee, pine, roasted malt, dark chocolate, molasses, dried fruit, and a hint of alcohol.

T: Bourbon, toffee, and molasses fighting with a piney bitterness and a little char up front, some roasted malt, dark chocolate, fig, a hint of berries, oak, peppery spice, toasted bread, with a noticeable though not entirely unpleasant touch of alcohol.

M: Full body, moderate carbonation, noticeable alcohol but not harsh.

O: I've been hoping to try this one for a while. It's good fresh, but I would imagine that if it was given more time to mellow out it would be even better.

Really disappointing. Gonzo is fairly hoppy and the hoppiness was the predominant note in this version - more so than booze, barrel, vanilla, chocolate, sweetness, or anything else you'd expect with a barrel-aged stout/porter. Not very good.
