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. I’m surprised I didn’t hate this. Not saying it’s amazeballs or anything, but I was ready to hate.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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. It’s a damn good beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice lower ABV BA beer.
Raisin, toffee, burnt sugar, grape, malt, oak and bourbon.
Soft in the taste but great feel, very rich and bigger than the ABV leads on

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Spectacular for a low abv. High flavor and aroma, prefect coloring and well played all around. Bourbon isn’t heavy, but is tasty. The amber color and taste shine through. Scent is sweet like dates and caramelized sweet onions. Not a boozy taste at all. Very multidimensional and again, for low abv I was impressed. Bottle
