Dark pour with a tan head. Aroma is light bourbon. Taste is light bourbon, creamy, malty, light oak, thin. Final sip had the most of the bourbon flavor. So-so lacing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bourbon on the nose, but seems a little light in the loafers. Palate is not what I expected, but still pretty balanced. Body is too thin for this application. Good beer though

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam, 27 July 2013) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark fruit, black rye bread, coffee, cocoa, oak wood and a light bourbon aroma. Malty, fruity taste with dried fruit, roasted malt, bourbon, oak wood and a gentle coffee bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. The bourbon character takes over quite much after a while, but the beer is tasty and quite nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep black pour with a thin tan head. The aroma has a lot of soft vanilla and a bit of light cocoa with a touch of light plum and some soft roast. Softly malty and a bit of licorice. A touch of light fruit and a fairly sweet milk chocolate and toffee. It’s not the best bourbon-aged stout but its not terrible. Nice enough brew. A bit sweet and a very light roastiness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Vanilla, bourbon, tropical rum, and coconut milk on the nose. Deep, dark black appearance with a brown foam rim. Soft flavors of vanilla, milk, bourbon, chocolate and coffee. Finish leaves a resignating grain characteristic on the palate. Overall, a bit unbalanced and awkward yet, strangely intriguing. I’d give this a c+ rating.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nearly black pour with a tan head that’s not really an even colour. There are darker patches. The nose is LOADED with bourbon. I get this weird impression of Christmas in a broken home. Like a deep deep toffee or something, almost dark chocolate but not. There’s a coffee vibe way in the back too. Interesting. Incredibly on the palate. So well integrated with the bourbon and coffee and chocolate with an added hint of licorice. Big velvety body. Great stuff and I think the low alcohol helps the flavours come out in this case.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Det konkrete eksemplaret i testen ble drukket lunken på en parkeringsplass ved The Strip i Las Vegas, etter at flasken falt i bakken og korken spratt av - klokken 11 om morgenen. Rett fra flasken. Feinschmeckerne blant oss er kanskje støtt. Nuvel, lukten av bourbon og eik er meget påfallende. Smak av mild vanilje og lys sjokolade. Kroppen er kanskje en tanke tynn, men absolutt et dugandes brygg - kanskje fortrinnsvis i vinterhalvåret.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice bourbon & barrel characteristics on the nose, followed by some mild chocolate and vanilla. Pours "luxuriously" as described above, lots of off white/ soft mahagony head. First taste is of vanilla then mild espresso, then an odd off flavor. This leads into the palate being very effervescent. Overall, the taste and palate leave much to be desired...

Bottle from Ryan and Casey Liquors Pours black with a thin khaki head. Traces of whiskey on the nose. A little bit more intense on the tongue. Wild Turkey’s not my favorite whiskey that’s true but I thought Thusday would be more flavorful.
