4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Corked bottle # 10804 and served in a nonic pint glass: Pours darker than expected for the style likely due to the barrel, creamy off-white head and nice lacework upon the glassware. Finally got this one and for the most part I am quite happy with it. The whiskey while noticed did not dominate the profile. Nice oak and vanilla notes along with the base malts and a bit of that "english yeast" earthy character. I get just a hint of what appears to be Fuggle hop around the edges. I would easily buy this again.
Yeah it works with some football

Draft at Pony bar HK. Pours a deep murky brown with lots of off white lacing. Aroma is sweet, tasty bourbon - reminds me of watered down angel share. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet caramel candies, toffee, light cocoa, sweet oak, bourbon and a nice light hop finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle poured at GABF 2012. Pours a hazy orange-caramel color with an off-white head. Nose is some light caramel and some big whiskey with light fruit and some mild yeast. Flavor is a strange melange of big whiskey with some mild fruit and oak. Light in body and strange overall.

Tap at rackhouse. Clear dark ruby/copper with a thin white head. Sweet malty aroma with rusty notes of oaked vanilla, burnt caramel, and a light char note. Tastes a lot like whiskey but without the sharp or heavy booziness. Charred oak and vanilla, some earthy toffee, light whiskey esters, ending in a earthy cara/toffee tone. Sweet at first, then kinda oaky and dry.

On tap @ The Rackhouse Pub. Murky, whiskey brownish. Equally murky whiskey aroma, with some brown sugar malt tones. Taste was pretty strong bitter malt, like a barleywine, but with a sweet and spicy whiskey finish. Finished somewhat sweet.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pony Bar, NY tap ($5): Pours an amber/brown with an off-white head. Aroma is whiskey, wood, malts, and a bit of hops. Whiskey dominates this rather fully. It has some ESB coming through, but I would be hard-pressed to even call it that. It ainít bad. It is interesting, but it is also somewhat gimmicky.

On tap at Flying Saucer Anniversary Party. Pours a cloudy amber with a small beige head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a strong caramel malt and oak. Medium mouthfeel with a rich malt and oak with caramel and whiskey with a strong booze finish. A very well done English strong ale from Breckenridge.
