Flavor is of caramel, bourbon, and oak. Nice dark sugar flavor also. Tastes and smell is balanced for a strong ale. Very nice mouthfeel. Thin fading head. Good beer!

Taster at brewery. Nose is dependable bourbon. Sip adds wood and earthy notes. Just a treat. I didn’t expect Pappy until I read the description. Lovely to have.

Draft. Deep hazy maroon brown color, tan head. Aroma of burnt caramel, vanilla, chocolate, whiskey. Taste is more bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit. Tasty.

b3shine (5853) - Indiana, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a translucent dark amber with off-white lacing. Smells good too; sweet and malty without being cloying. Nots of caramel, bourbon, and oak. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer!

"2 oz" bottle pour at SAVOR’s Friday night session. Poured a clear red color with a small off-white head. Aroma was sweet malts, vanilla notes, brown sugar. Flavor was some caramel, brown sugar, almost cocoa character in this. Touch of light bourbon character - sweet enjoyable. Would drink again.

6oz pour at Smoke and Barrel. Pours a translucent brick red with some sticky, sudsy off white head. Nose has a bit of booze, coconut, vanilla, brown sugar, malt, cracker, a hint of herb. Flavors are really well blended, malt, cracker, some booze, vanilla, caramel, biscuit, some orange, some dried fruit, a little bit of windex. Clean finish. Great barrel treatment.

Sweet, caramely, with nice flavors of vanilla, bourbon, and oak. Slight tartness, but overall smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour from a growler shared by umr_urgefan- thanks again, Paul! Pours a clear amber color with no head. Nice bourbon barrel nose- vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, dust, and oak. The flavor is a muted version of the same. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a dry, fairly flat mouthfeel. Smells nice and falls short of expectations ultimately. The base beer doesn’t appear to have much to it.

The barrel really shows through the palate of this brew. Pleased with the overall complexity of the beer. One of my top reds!

draft and hope this is the right one we had last night. poured a reddish brown with little head on it...sweet bourbon smell with some oak and hops and maybe some vanilla tones. call me crazy but this was like drinking candy but no to sweet. really good flavor with that bourbon and oak mix. warming.
