Nice ESA I brought back from Asheville. Loaded w/chocolate & caramel notes! So smooth & rich! Like a caramel wrapped in chocolaty goodness.

Good but kinda non-descript in taste. Maybe it was overshadowed by the other 2 brews I drank just before. Not dark & thick enough either

Maybe cause it's different than all the bourbon barrels but this was really flavorful w/the rum aging. Thanks again Kristi & Mike for gift.

Dark Horse Brewing Co. by Bourbon Barrel Aged 20th Anniversary Ale

Tastes a lot like Plead the Fifth BBA, which is a good thing. Not quite as strong but a really good drinker. Thanks Kristi & Mike.

Jaws Brewery by V.II

john g. is drinking a V.II by Jaws Brewery at Sturgis, MI

A very good Rusky Imperial Stout. Since, it's a product of Russia, I guess it had better be good. They're bound to get something right. Lol
