4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This 22oz bomber is courtesy of Doodler, thanks man! It pours with a clear copper body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up raisins and prunes and brown sugar mixed with mild smooth bourbon notes. The taste is pretty darn smooth with prunes and raisin fruity esters sliding into firm levels of bourbon notes. At first it seems far too barrel forward but after a few ounces the balance with the beer notes came around and made for a more enjoyable experience.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
It is a gusher for some reason. It pours murky brown with reddish hues and a fizzy tannish white head..
The smell is nice. There is a fruitiness running through it that is beautiful and reminds me of J.W. Lees. The oak and bourbon scents are also there, not overpowering, which I like. The alcohol is there, adding a perfume that melds with the bourbon.
The flavor is pretty good. A lot of flavors combine for a luscious flavor. Nothing seems overpowering. There is a nice combo of vanilla, caramel, and bourbon that really seems to be the backbone. There is also a hint of bitterness and a big hit of dark fruits.
This one is a bit cloying and hot at times but overall a great beer.
