Growler courtesy of my wife, thanks honey. Pours a reddish brown with a light carbonation and a small head. The aroma is complex and really kept my nose in the glass. The nose is dominated by oaky and malty sweet notes in kind of a balsamic vinegar kind of way without the tartness. There is some plum, caramel, and whiskey in there as well. The flavor is plenty of dark fruit (raisin, plum, & stuff like that) there are some oaky and lighter fruity notes (apple, berries, stuff like that) The finish has some nice chocolate and boozy notes. Very enjoyable.

When poured it is a dark red syrupy liquid. Low head retention. Their is a great bourbon smell, slight alcohol on the nose, also an hint of apricots. The palate is is very silky with pops of carbonation on the tongue. The back end is nice and roasty. Very enjoyable beer for a nice cold day in Iowa.

Sampled early release at the Blue Heron Brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Pours a dark reddish cola brown with virtually no head. Aroma of of bourbon whiskey, dark chocolate, candi sugar, some light coconut, vanilla and caramel. Wow, lots of character in this bourbonized old ale. Taste is smooth, no carbonation, with some complex flavors of bourbon, dark chocolate, some vanilla, cotton candy and a hint of banana. Finish is quite sweet, smooth as silk with an aftertaste of bourbon, candi sugar and vanilla. This one won’t last long at the brewpub when tapped.
