On tap during RBWG. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is strong bourbon and wood. Slick mouthfeel, with nice bourbon, vanilla, wood, very good.

Tmoney99 (11545) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Draft. Poured clear reddish brown color with an average fizzy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted dark malt, vanilla with a sweet bourbon aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a medium roasted sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a better beer.

hopscotch (9952) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Draft...RBWG 2013… Dark brown ale with ruby highlights and no head. The aroma is a blend of caramel, toasted oak and vanilla. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and stale carbonation. The flavor is lightly acidic, offering notes of sourmash, vanilla and caramel. Tangy, acrid finish.

markwise (4601) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2013
On draft at Bold City for RBWG. Pours a hazy red-amber with a white head. Nose is huge booze notes, vanilla, and some light malt. Flavor is similar with big vanilla, malt, and bourbon notes. Light in body and boozy as all hell, but the beer mellows out the bourbon, so some mild red ale comes through. Weird, but interesting.

decaturstevo (5342) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Brown pour with red tones. BB, vanilla, and oak aromas. Bourbon, vanilla, roasted malt and a nice warmth. Smooth body with good carbonation.

jredmond (5882) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Draft at CCB during Hunahpu Day 2013 - one of the first beers of the day. Pours a deep black body with no head, light lacing. Aroma is straight bourbon - too boozy. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of bourbon, oak and light chocolate. Overall, way too much alcohol in this one.

Draft at CCB poured a dark amber color with aromas of malts, vanilla, bourbon and some light cbocolate. Flavors follow suit interesting beer how is this a red ale in the name?

On tap at the brewery RBWG. Pours clear dark brown with a thin off-white head. Pleasant Bourbon aroma.sweet, just enough bourbon to add some complexity.
