Big thanks to boralyl for sending this one out my way. Nose brings forward a good dose of strong bourbon. Very smooth. Underneath is a bit of oak and moderate dark fruit character along with a bit of cherry. Mild caramel and a bit of underlying sweetness. Medium body and very smooth.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer appears a murky shade of burnt copper with virtually no head. The aroma offers oak, vanilla, bourbon, sweet malt. The flavor is very malty, with tannic / vanilla notes. Perhaps a hint of citrus from excessive barrel character. Light in feel with low carbonation. Overall, this was ok.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The corked and caged bottle came from Market of Choice in Ashland, Oregon. The cork was tough to remove, and I finally had to resort to a wine bottle cork remover. Poured a muddy dark copper color with a small tan head and polka dot lacing. Nose of bourbon, with some sweet malts. Medium to full in body with an alcoholic mouthfeel. The flavor is almost overwhelmingly bourbon with some vanilla and a lot of alcohol. Long bourbon finish. Sometimes beers with this much bourbon and alcohol are problematic, but this one works quite well, and is very tasty and drinkable from start to finish. Quite a beer.

Sweet and robust ale. Assuming its aged in PVW 23 it has the standard vanilla bourbon notes, not much more.

December 29, 2012 - bottle at Brett’s tasting. Brown pour with some head. Dry finish, heavy on the bourbon and some wood. Love me some pappy but this needed to sit for a bit longer.

Pours brown with no head. Aroma of malt and sweet caramel, with a touch of bourbon. Sweet and tasty, malty with a touch of bourbon. Lighter than expected yet really nice.

Murky amber beer with almost no head. A nice warms bourbon oak nose. This is one of those beers where the bourbon barrel just overpowers all other flavors. This beer has lots of bourbon, oak and buttery alcohol. If you like bourbon you will enjoy this.

Bottle shared at Natifest 12. Poured hazy dark copper color with a moderate frothy brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Medium to heavy toasted, woody, vanilla and dough with a small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy sweet bourbon finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.
