Pours dark and thick with a creamy white beige head. The aroma brings some brown sugar sweetness and then a bit of vanilla and oak. The flavor brings a shot of bourbon, smooth though, but falling short on body and complexity in general. For 6% that makes sense though, so overall I think it is a decent brew.

Buffalo Trace aged. Opaque dark brown beer, pale tan head. Nice toffee caramel nose. Palate is light and semi crisp. Taste follows the nose. Mellow dark malt with rich caramel, a little toffee and mild minerals. Mild tang. Pretty mellow whisky. Good stuff!

Deep brown in color. Aroma is that of a turning orange...just past ripe. Flavor is like red apple and roast malt.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Black pour with a slick of tan foam and heavy lacing. Aroma is light bourbon and oak (more so than the bourbon), roast, chocolate, and slight bitterness. Taste is light bourbon up front with some alcohol spice, roasted chocolate and malt, and spicy oak through the finish. Light, mostly clean mouthfeel although the barrel character lingers. Nice barrel aged treatment if a low ABV beer but by way of comparison markedly less impact in both aroma and taste as compared to BA Nut Brown from Ale Smith.

This one poured a medium brown color with a beiege head. Aroma was chocolate, tequila, light roast and some earthy notes. Flavor was earthy and liquor like, some vegetal and stale coffee, but velvety smoooth at the same time. Interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Pours opaque brown with a small tan head and some lacing. Aroma is bourbon, cocoa powder, and dark roasted malt with a light coffee note. Flavor is the same, quite smooth with light sweetness and no real bitterness other than a very light coffee aftertaste. Medium body and a warming finish that was a bit surprising for the relatively low ABV.
