2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours hazy reddish mahogany, swirling streaks of some suspended fine particles in the glass make it look like something from a horror movie. Huge beige creamy head, very slow to dissipate, nice lacing. Aroma is very light overall and dominated by grain, caramel, and not much else. Flavor is the same, maybe a touch of whiskey, but not much, medium sweet to the point of being a bit sickly, oranges, light tartness and funkiness; tastes a bit infected to me. Some woody tannins just to round out an overall not so pleasant experience.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Hazy brown with a tan head. Aroma is nutty, and sweet vanilla. The flavor is nice, not as bourbon-y as I was hoping, but itís nice and nutty with some sweetness from the barrels thrown in. There is a hint of some roasty chocolate as well. Enjoyable.

This poured a medium brown with a beige head. Aroma was whiskey, and caramel. Flavor was similar, not much brown ale character, but a simple tasty BA beer without being sweet or boozy

5th June 2013
Hazy deep amber beer with a pale tan head. Nice fruity nose. Palate is light and semi dry. Mild carbonation. A little creamy malt with a touch of barrel induced vanilla. Mellow and slightly sour whisky. Whisper of Coca Cola and nice generic fruits. Mild sherbet in the aftertaste. Very tasty and drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
It tastes like nuts, vanilla, caramel, bourbon and a little bit of pears, surprisingly. But overall there isnít much bourbon in either the aroma or flavor of this brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís smooth and a bit slick. It also has a good amount of carbonation, but itís also easy to drink. I think this is a solid overall brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Unfiltered brown body, slow steady carbonation bubbles within, thin white head. Probably the first barrel aged Nut Brown Iíve had. Barrel aroma combined with some toffee, caramel, brown chocolate. Mild and subdued, but still tastes bigger than 5.8%. Smooth caramel booze candy finish. Very unique, itís nice to have a drinkable barrel aged beer. Refined, yet bold flavors. Well done.

Pours cloudy brown with reddish hue, tan head, and no lacing. Aroma of whiskey, roasted malts, and some spice. Taste is the same with a long lingering bready maltiness.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a chestnut brown with no head. Aroma of rye whiskey, cherry, walnuts, and mocha. Taste is a fantastic mix of toasted nuts, bourbon barrel, and balanced sweetness. A fantastic offering.

November 2012 brewed. Big whiskey taste, which helped this lightweight brown beer. Not super drinakble but had some decent taste without being heavyweight booziness.
