Tmoney99 (13615) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Draft at St. Matthews. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate nutty malt, bourbon and wood aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture with flat carbonation. Medium to heavy bourbon bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout brew.

Growler… Clear ruby ale with an orange tinge and very little head. Wow, smells like bourbon and brown ale - the barrel aging provides some mild vanilla notes - but mostly, I get bourbon. Full-bodied with tickling carbonation. Lots of bourbon in the flavor along with some nice (but more subtle) nutty, chocolaty notes. Lengthy, boozy, warm finish. I dig bourbon and I dig brown ale. Works for me. Kudos to TheCheeseMan for providing the growler!

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2009
courtesy of the man himself "cheeseman". growler. Pours copper, flat. Aroma was just like smelling whiskey and coke with barrel all over it, some notes of vanilla added. Taste, lots and lots of bourbon, some light malts and caramel, vanilla notes and wood barrel. The brown notes of the beer is just covered with the bourbon. This is a love/hate beer. Either people will love the bourbon in it or hate it because it pretty much takes most of the base beer away.

Growler from Party Town in 2009 from notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber brown color with a small ivory colored head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, nuts, cocoa powder, light roast, bourbon, vanilla, wood, creamy smooth mouthfeel, this was too easy to drink to be 11.5%. One of their better barrel aged beers.

ClubGonzo (5468) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2011
Tap sample @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2011. Deep red-hued amber body, topped by a medium eggshell-colored retention. Nose is soft bourbon notes of peanut and coconut, with hints of red berries and vanilla pudding. Very original and very nice. Taste is in the same vein; smooth tones of peanuts, coconut and strong vanilla flavors progressing gradually in the mouth for each sip. Light-bodied, despite its strength, feels like bourbon essence or something. This works really, really well and makes for a smooth, easy drinking brew. Great stuff; I’ll be checking out more from Bluegrass for sure! :-)
