SinH4 (1138) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2015
Hazy orange color with small white head. Flowery grains, some spicy Belgian yeasts, some sugary Bourbon wood. Taste is sweet, grainy, flowery, boozy, a bit of a burn, surprisingly low carbonation. Certainly a good beer, nice Barrel character which is not too strong, but does not live up to its reputation.

King_Alex_II (676) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Golden color quite some foam. The smell has a boozy touch and a lot of whisky nose but with a fresh touch. The taste is very actively carbonated and has its yeasty and sweet malty character, but still got an underlying whisky note that becomes stronger in the aftertaste and carries a boozy note through the whole beer taste. A little heavy, but definitely a good beer.

Pours a hazy gold. Aroma is slightly lacking, not a huge amount on it. Flavor is bourbon soaked caramelized bananas. Pretty tasty.

Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, wheat, yeast, vanilla, oak, floral and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long warm, wheat, yeasty, vanilla and oak finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Appearance: Mildly hazy straw colored body, thin white head with poor retention.
Aroma: Very light, hints of tart citrus with light bourbon and coconut.
Taste: Odd but enjoyable, very balanced mix of grapefruit, lemon and orange with coconut and bourbon on the finish.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Good beer, I enjoy the balance, but the flavors clash.

Jow (2788) - New York, USA - APR 30, 2015
Tap at some queens bar. Nose is sweet bourbon and yeast. Tastes of Jim beam, yeast, red fruit, bready, slight booze. Smooth palate. Quite delicious.

RickReallyBrew (74) - Franktown, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2015
As close to perfect as you can get. I figured this brew to be a quad or Belgian Strong Ale. Very rich and complex flavor and high end of the spectrum malt / gravity experience and mouth feel. This is a tremendous blonde strong ale with a sophisticated complexity created by layering in oak whiskey barrels. One of my favorites all time!

BiiruBierBeer (658) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2015
Smell is mild bourbon, Belgian yeast, and some mineral. Taste is the same with a good amount of malt and some dryness at the end. Medium body and carbonation with mild foam.

Wonder bourbon and smoked wood in the nose. Slightly yeasty with strong bourbon and wood flavors. Wonderful stuff. Must. Buy. More.
