4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle) Pours reddish brown with a nougat coloured head. The aroma holds clean bourbon, caramel, smoke, alcohol and woodsy/earthy hops. The flavour is near medium sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic. Caramel, smoke, barrel tones and, as usual, balanced hops. The mouthfeel is round and light numbing with a soft carbonation. Alcohol and bourbon on the finish. Near full bodied.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
November 26, 2014 - bottle via trade. Brown pour with limited head that faded quickly. Aroma was just fantastic - smoke, maple, caramel and bourbon. Taste started with the sweetness (maple, vanilla, caramel), moved to a light smokiness and finished with a nice bourbon.

Bottle @ Another Tasting, courtesy of Vaiz. Massive thnx for sharing this one! Pours hazy dark amber colour with a medium sized off white head on top. Aroma of big caramel malts, loads of barrel, vanilla, big bourbon characters.
Flavor is very sweet, light alcoholic, big boozy characters. The malt base is very big on this one, loads of sweet stuff going on. Amazing well balanced beer. Age is incredible. Great stuff!!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Mostly clear longhorn-orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Toasted coconut and gooey caramel are front-and-center in the bouquet. Full-bodied and velvety with vibrant carbonation. The flavor presents layers of bourbon and caramel and loads of liquor warmth. Finishes boozy and bittersweet, then fairly dry. Muchos kudos to richiesd for shipping this bad boy my way!
