330ml bottle shared with mr_h. 6.8% abv, aged 62 days. Dark brown, reasonable head. Bourbon malt aroma. Barley malt flavour. Insipid, alcohol aftertaste. Not my sort of beer.

6.8% bottle. Clear amber beer, small bubbly pale cream colour head. Smooth palate, semi dry with mild fine carbonation. Mild smooth malts, dry. Light sweetness. Little vanilla oak. Traces of fruits and mild bourbon. Mellow finish. If someone had given me an unlabelled bottle and said it was by Innis & Gunn, I would have believed them!

Respectable choice for a beer, a nice alternative for an Innis and gunn. I’ll look out for discounts in the future. Worth a try I think.

Sweet chocolate first on the nose and for taste, then more sweetness, not my cup of tea

[330ml bottle] Pours the colour of Coca Cola, the effervescent head reduces to a lacing fairly quickly. Faint tingle of oak on the nose, my clear bottle has been sitting round for a while, in all fairness. Tastes like a whisky truffle. Very comforting rising sweetness on the finish, like a oak-aged blanket wrapping around you. Lots of coconut, vanilla, muscovado sugar. Whisky is there too. It doesn’t taste like a beer - more like an (sorry Paul) alcopop. But I do like it

There is only one word to desctibe this beer. Bourbon. That’s it. It almost tastes like a Jim Beam n Coke... The ale is too thin and not flavorful enough to cope with the amount of bourbon in this. Its drinkable, but then again, if I wanted this much bourbon, I’d buy a bottle of Beam and a bottle of Coke. I think if it had spent less time in the barrel it would have been nicer. You just can’t taste the ale.
