on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Nearly clear dark amber, heavy off-white rim head, spots of lace. Taste is malt with sweet vanilla that grows nicely as it moves through the palate. It becomes bitter on the swallow, but, then has a vanilla malt rebound in the finish. Small doses only, but it is a good brew.

Pours a reddish brown with moderate carb. Nose and taste are of a subdued typical red. Barrel is not very noticeable. Drinkable but not memorable.

Pint on tap. Mostly clear copper-brown with a small disc of foam. Aroma is vanilla toffee. Flavors of dark bread, roasted pecan and vanilla toffee. Finish is big with vanilla. Nice toasted oak in the long finish along with some whiskey. Light-medium body is sweetish, but has a decent balance and a mostly smooth carbonation. Very nice job of barreling and vanilling(?) to maximize the potential of the so-so beer underneath without overwhelming it.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Nolen. Big hoppy red like ale with some fruity notes. Light vanilla in the end from the barrel. Decent.

2oz taster on tap, at HopCat Broad Ripple. Clear orange color. Thin off-0white head, leaving good thicker lace. Caramel malt, big vanilla syrup, something metallic about it. A little unnatural. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter. Interesting stuff, but a little artificial-tasting, to me.

Tap at Fickle Peach: Served in standard pint glass. Pours a reddish brown hue with a small but lasting frothy head, good lace. The aroma and taste is vanilla, caramel, light bourbon, grassy hops and earthy. A tad sweet but still easily drinkable. The favorite amongst my non beer geeks bowling team.

Fobab 2012. Very strange idea with this one. Poured a reddish color with a beige head. Aroma was bourbon and vanilla and light metallic notes. Flavor wasn;t as barrel forward as expecting,s omewhat bland amber base with light bourbon and vanilla sweetness. Meh.

Fobab. Red. Slightly low carbonation. Mouth feel is a bit thicker than water. Sweet, but with bitter ending. Good balance between the tastes. Hop, caramel, jam aroma. Very good.

On draft poured a cop perish red color with nice white head. The aroma was of malt and some mild hops along with the bourbon barrel aging. The flavor for me was very vanilla and sweet. I think the vanilla bean takes away some of the goodness of this beer, but just my opinion.
