3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the Ballast Point tasting room in Temecula. The beer pours a deep reddish-brown color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bourbon, malt and vanilla. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, vanilla and caramel malt. Some hops in the background. The finish is oaky with a bourbon and malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Canít say this is better than the "regular" Tongue Buckler,. The hops are such that they still come through, though the barrel is strong as well. Nice sipper, a must for any big fans of BA beers.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a reddish brown thin tan head with deccent lacing. Aroma is of toasted sweet malts, stone fruits, woody bourbon, vanilla, and some molasses. Taste is rally smooth and as a very nice combination of smooth bourbon and nice fruit notes. Has a medium body with a slighty creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter finish. Overall, a very mellowed out version of tounge buckler that is very tasty and drinkable compared to the orginal.

Tap @ hamiltons. Fuck yeah...this is tongue buckler stripped of the palate raping hoppiness and dosed with smooth boozy softness. This is the way tongue buckler was meant to be...I like the reg version but this is a fuck bunch of a step up. Fruity malty/hop flavors come out...smooth with the barrel influence. I hate rating beers and typing stupid shit like this so Iím gonna stop talking now, apply some random numbers to make it a high rating and then ima fuck off just like you should.
