Bottle thanks to Daniel. Pours a near clear deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of sweet grains with a good amount caramel and notes of vanilla and bourbon backing. Flavor is full of caramel and vanilla with a nice oakiness with a bit of bourbon and a touch of toffee.

Rando7 (730) - Iowa, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle pours cloudy medium brown with thin yellowish head. Aroma of bourbon, malts, oak, hops. Initial swallow quite hoppy, after that the hops fade and taste predominantly caramel, toffee, bourbon and slight oak. The hops do add a zest and mouth tingle. Great thick palate.

arkurzynski (1487) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Hazy brown-orange pour. Nose is tangy dark and citrus fruit with oaky bourbon. Flavor is tart/tangy bourbon-soaked dark fruit. Fairly dry oak finish with a little vanilla. Lots of tangy bourbon and wood notes. Medium road mouthfeel - slightly beefier than the rye version. Overall a quality beer, but bourbon barrel characteristics are more in your face and not as blended as in the rye version.
