3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
6/15/14. 22oz bottle from 5 Points. BA Amber ale FFS? Oh well, here goes. Amber red pour with a small khaki head (even with a strong pour) that fades and laces a touch. Mild aroma, just hints of bourbon, a nice oak and vanilla aspect, surprisingly, lots of caramel, and an aspect that reminds me of granola or oatmeal in a way. Sweet-ish flavor, lightly nutty, blends surprisingly well with the barrel, which adds mild oak and vanilla on top of caramel and doughiness from the beer. Iím surprised I didnít hate this. Not saying itís amazeballs or anything, but I was ready to hate.

On tap at Millstone in Rock Hill. Faint malt vanilla aroma. Dark Amber with lacing. The bourbon flavors (vanilla and wood) blend well with the sweetness of the ale. Also a dry feel. Well done.

Red gold, slightly opaque with a creamy head. Lovely aroma, almost chocolate. Very malty. Thick and satisfying in the mouth, leaves a caramel type aftertaste. Itís a damn good beer.

Nice lower ABV BA beer.
Raisin, toffee, burnt sugar, grape, malt, oak and bourbon.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
tap mad mex. Big & black it seems. Smells a little tart, makes my mouth water. No tartness on taste. Rather more mild than expected. Very little co2. Yes, some whisky in thar. Per haps too much whisky barrel effects.
