Shared by moejuck and spector. Pours a dark yellow color with a orangish hue to it and a steady white head. Aroma was a little yeasty, bourbon, very light and easy to drink I thought. Pretty dry and some alcohol coming through. The bubbles on the tongue were great in this. Very tasty beer.

i had heard of this beer thru a website and tracked it down.vintage 2006, at 11%.aged in jim beam barrels, i hoped it would filter through, unlike alot of wooded beers.first pour, very nice, nice head.immediate smell of whiskey.
a sip, then WOW.this is ale? are we sure?immediate wood, earth, sweet tripel, and other notes come through followed by that famous whiskey taste.
an amazing beer, one i’m glad i had, would buy again and again.also the only ale my brain ever tried to tell me i needed a chaser.

A honey-bourbon nose with a hint of bourbon in the taste along with some citrus notes. Bourbon pretty much dominates but that is not a bad thing, would like to age some.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2012 Draught at The Hop Leaf (02/14/2007) and bottle (11/03/2012). Pours hazy yellow with a small frothy white head, mostly lasting with light lacing. Aroma is bread crust, cracker, and honey malt, floral and citrus hops with light perfume notes, soft tropical fruity esters and faint alcohol notes. Flavor is sweet malt, light hops and bitterness, fresh, lightly toasted oak, subtle bourbon and vanilla, spicy and peppery alcohol, moderate fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation; light astringency.

Draught snifter at Capone’s. Clear brassy gold body with a nicely persistent frothy white head. Aroma has white vinous notes along with bubble gum, tropical fruit, pepper, and fresh cut orange. Warm honey and vanilla tones in the flavor, which is notably sweet but somewhat balanced by alcoholic heat. A little underattenuated and hot, but very good regardless. Compelling depth of character. This went down remarkably fast.

The Bourbon nose is wonderful! The flavor has a citrus and bourbon sweetness from drink to swallow. This bottle was gone quite quickly.
