Intense oily mahogany pour with a lingering tan head. Very aggresive alcohol nose and smoky/burnt malt. The bourbon is immediately apparent in the first sip...threatening to overwhelm...but I donít care. Nice velvety mouthfeel and finish. Very well done.

Snifter of Man Skirt Wood at the brewpub. Itís got avery dark mahogany body with a firm tan head. Thereís much Bourbon in the aroma, but also some woody malt (?), dark fruit, a hint of smoke, and alcohol. Very smooth feeling in the mouth. The flavor adds a bit of vanilla and toffee along with a touch of mustiness. Nice and warming, making me wish that these BA offerings werenít just a seasonal affair.

On tap at Flossmoor Station and served in a snifter. This ale poured a dark brown with some transparent edges. A thick head of tan foam quickly faded away. The aroma of the beer included strong bourbon notes, light smoke, dark fruit, and a touch of alcohol. The flavor contained heavy bourbon, sweet dark fruit, and tobacco. While a tad boozy, the alcohol and bourbon settled in nicely with the other flavors. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with a dry finish and minimal carbonation. A really nice brew to warm up with.

FoBAB 2007: Deep brown with ruby highlights topped by a fading head and oily legs. The aroma is very boozy with equal parts scotch and American bourbon, peaty, smoky, oaky, caramelized malts, grassy, and earthy.

The taste is a alcoholic, phenolic and malty with a noticeable smoky finish. Highly aggressive and warming, it become overbearing after the first few sips. I would really liked to see what this would be like if aged in scotch barrels instead of bourbon. I really like Flossmoor, but today I just have to be brutally honest.

On tap right now at FSRB. Deep brown, with the only light coming through the punt at the bottom of the goblet. This was poured from a newly tapped barrel, so a thick foam quickly ebbed to a thin top layer. More heady smelling than the previous Killer Wood offering. Still a touch of tartness in the nose. Taste is thick and chewy. A little sweet and tart fruit, like a German white wine. Add to that the expected brandy, vanilla and oak notes, plus some alcohol warmth, and itís quite the winter beer. A bit of phenolic band-aid pops in midway through, but thatís a risk with high gravity.

GTMW 2007. Poured a clear red-orange color. Head was off white. Smelled of malty molasses, subdued bourbon, and a touch of soy sauce. Thick and oily texture without much in the way of carbonation. Although the peated malt wasnít all that evident to my weak nose, I could definitely taste it. The roasty and smoky malt jived nicely with the molasses and vanilla flavors. It seemed to me that the alcohol weighed in greater than the advertised 8.3%. I liked this much better than the regular version that came out in the winter of 2006.
