italianjohn (2279) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Black pour tan head creamy with light lacing .... aroma of bourbon and roasted malts and coffee ..... very smooth and silky with a light fruity and roasted malt and coffee taste ... a bitter warming alcohol bourbon finish .... not a heavy brew kind of thin and easy drinking as it warms more of the bourbon flavor comes in ... not bad but i wasn’t blown away

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
2013-04-26. Black body with a nice tan head. 4+ Bourbony aroma, light woody notes, dry roasty malt notes, sweet vanilla. Flavour is similar, strong bourbon overtones, fairly bitter, some green hops in the background? Notes if licorice in the finish? Very smooth medium bodied palate has pleasant carbonation. Decent but don’t think the BA helped it much.On tap at Three Penny Taproom, Montpelier

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Draught at the Saucer’s Cellarbration of Raleigh Beer Week. Poured a near black color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose had some bourbon notes, though they were light and not overpowering. The bourbon overwhelmed the taste, though, and made it feel pretty boozy. Drank smooth, though.

Westmeister (1653) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Draft in Athens, GA. Pours viscous black with thinner tan head. Smell is overwhelmingly bourbon and then some dark roasted malts. Taste is much the same with cola flavors. Seriously almost like a bourbon and coke. Or maybe I am just in Athens and have tailgating on my mind.
