2015 edition. Big bottle picked up at Bethlehem Brew works. Served fridge chilled. Tulip glass. Thin off white head. Significantly thinner than regular version out of corked bottle. Some light lacing but not much. Aroma has some lighter bourbon notes and faint malts and spices. Taste is lightly sweet with faint notes of bourbon and light spicing. Light bodied beer though reasonably high alcohol (9%). Lighter to average carbonation. Over all a enjoyable holiday ale. Was a bit unsure how the bourbon aging would work with the spiced ale style, pleasently pleased, though not blown away. Would likely pick up again.

Draft at Capone’s. Poured hazy ruby brownish with tan head. Nose was plum, earthy malt, spice, oaky bourbon. Tasted like woodier mad ekf, with more complexity and nuance.

Pours a lovely dark brown with a white head. Has a nice bourbon aroma. You taste the bourbon upfront. Has a very sweet after taste.

Instead of reaching for some bourbon as an after dinner drink, you can get the best of both worlds with this beer! A little bit overpowering at first, but as it warms up and as your sips get a little deeper this beer delighted me. Warms your body and soul, spiced bourbon and a bit of alcohol bite for that bourbon experience!

2011 bbl aged for the Hulmeville Inn .... Poured a deep amber with a thin ring of off white head and a thick oily clear lacing on the glass ... aroma of cherry, vanilla, caramel malts, oak and light bourbon (cherry comes through well in the aroma) ...... Taste is of cherry, spicy cinnamon, oak, bourbon and some light dark fruit ...... definitely bourbony and boozy .... very dry oaky finish with a warming abv ..... aroma hides the abv real well .... the taste has a nice sharp spicy bourbon bite .... well done
