Pours dark brown with little to no head. Grainy aroma and flavor. Not much in the way of bourbon flavor. Not great.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours dark brown, looking mahogany thru direct light, and a frothy tan head. Nose is cacao, munich malt, hops. Tastes choc and munich malty, somewhat sweet and lactosy, with finishing notes of cacao and ovaltine.

12/23/13. $3.29 bottle from CBO. I drank this after drinking a bourbon county coffee which is unfair to this beer. However... I can say this was my first disappoint in a bourbon barrel beer. I taste & smell no bourbon characteristics. Sorry boys... FAIL!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mittenator (1278) - Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle. Near black with a tan head. Sweet bourbon, milk chocolate and strong booze aromas. Oddly boozy with not much flavor. Another miss from atwater for me.

hopdog (8852) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a smaller sized tan head. Aromas of chocolate, some wood, and a trace of vanilla. Tastes of vanilla, caramel, chocolate, and a trace of bourbon. Bourbon/barrel aging on the softer side.

koleminer20 (568) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2013
12 oz bottle. Part of a tasting 11/24/2013 at Fraser’s Pub in Ann Arbor. The pour is dark, but not thick at all. It’s pretty translucent, and not a good start. The aroma is heavy in chocolate and fruity notes There are a plethora of fruit notes that come through, but I think the dominant one would be raisins. The flavor is a little similar. This wasn’t ’blow-you-away’ on any front, but it was pretty solid. Some coffee, caramel, and a little chocolate coming through. Not bad, but definitely not what I was expecting

SSSteve (3751) - - OCT 17, 2013
bottle. burnt grain, toast, nuts and a hint of vanilla in the aroma. the beer pours black with a large, foamy, tan head. bready notes dominate flavor with a mild bourbon note that adds some vanilla sweetness. the right amount of bourbon. velvety palate. there is absolutely nothing wrong with this. its great!

ColovianTrader (269) - - APR 25, 2013
Burnt chocolate and roasted coffee aromas. Flavors of smooth dark chocolate and spiced raisins. Can definitely taste the bourbon, but not getting much of a barrel flavor. Leaves me wanting a bit more complexity but good overall.

maxwelldeux (3542) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a very small head. Nose is actually filled with a both chocolate and fruit notes. Taste has more fruit elements in it, but a similar flavor palate as the nose. Pretty decent brew....
