Drawing inspiration from imagery associated with the pioneers of America, the cornfields of Kentucky and the unusual town names of the Wild West, Dead Crow is a 5.5% bourbon-flavoured premium beer combining a light beer base with a rich bourbon spirit which gives it an aromatic bourbon aroma.

Bottle. Golden with a large white head. Aromas are lager shandy with syrup, grain and lemon. Whisky barrel with honey and caramel. Flavours are very sweet honey, sugar and grain with lemon. Some light whisky. Getting a sugar rush headache. The sweetest beer Iíve ever had. Urghhh.

[My bottle (330ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel] Pours a clear golden-orange with a small quick diminishing frothy white head. No lacing. Aroma is quite sweet and not great, itís a bit skunky along with toffee, bready notes and candy. Flavour is sugary and super sweet, syrupy sugary caramel -- I donít see how someone could drink this. Average bodied. Awful, a drainpour.

My husband hated this and said he couldnít drink it. I tasted it and thought "Yum"! That said, after a few sips it was very sweet. If you like ice wine, you will love this beer. But if you like bitter beers you will hate this.

[7939-20151120] 330mL bottle. Fruity cherry cordial and bourbon chewy wood aroma. Clear, bright yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Fruity cherry cordial continues in the flavour. Medium body. Fruity and scary. (3/2/3/2/7) 1.7

2015-11-20. Dark yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is rough, grainy, light pleasant fruit note is unfortunately brief. Flavour is unnaturally sweet, rough. Smooth sort of syrupy average bodied palate, low carbonation. Poor. 5/3/4/3/9 Bottle shared by Blankboy.

Sickly sweet... extremely disappointed. 2nd ingredient is sugar, maybe sticking with bourban as the second ingredient might have worked. I canít even drink the rest of the pack. Itís that bad. If you want sweet drink a cooler or pop instead, it would be more satisfying than this beer. Worst craft beer Iíve tried to date.

czar (6538) - Quťbec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2015
pours slightly hazy light golden with a small disappearing white cap, no lacing. sugary berries - very fruity, spicy and floral agave juice, spirit - more tequila than bourbon (!), malt extract honey sweetness, creamed corn, astringent wood-like notes, toffee. light carbonation light body - oily; sugary and almost cloying berry-astringent finish. artificial flavours alert. painful.

Spab (3052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2015
330 ml clear bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear pale golden colour with thin white cap. Aroma is fairly sweet and fruity with maybe a hint of something whiskey-ish. Flavour is a pretty nasty sugary mess with a sort of fruity butterscotch note that has a little woodiness. What junk.

MonsterMagnet (855) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2015
Cleaning the fridge tasting. Bottle, pours clear dark golden with a white head. Awful aroma, can be smelled from afar, and hard to describe. Artficial, bad, and malts. Then a sip... this is truly horrible. Sort of a bad ginger ale loaded with artificial sweetners and artifical flavouring. It is really bad. Really bad.

Metalchopz (2834) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2015
4-pack at the LCBO. Pours a golden colour with big bubble carbonation. Frothy white cap with average retention and some decent thick foam lacing. Sweet candy aromas with hints of pineapples in alcohol. The taste is sweet as well, but not too syrupy. Goes down wet. Vanilla notes with coconut over the sugar based beer. Maybe some ginger. Bourbon from England ? Coming from an American I could understand more, and would probably be better. I donít mind weird sugary commercial beers like this and Desperados, so probably a better note from me.

I tested this beer with two mates, and the nose was at first indescribable until one of us pointed out that it smells like the result of a diarrhetic misadventure. Itís an extremely awkward and offensive smell (as one can imagine). The taste was dominated by an overwhelming sugary overtone. Iím trying my best not to make this an unfair or totally bias review; but this stuff is ridiculous. I really canít recommend this at all.
