Fairly certain this is what I had on tap @ Rev Brew opening party. Pours brown with a tan head. Aroma of bourbon, caramel, wood. Little bit of spice to it and a little alcohol warmth. Very well done though.

On tap at brewpub. Pours brown with thick white head. Aroma is bourbon, spice, and caramel. Flavor is oak, bourbon, spice, caramel, and some vanilla. Very nice beer; I think the rye could be toned down, but a superb beer overall.

Draft at the brewery’s pre-DLD shindig. I thought it was pretty tasty but it did border on being sticky-sweet. Smaller amounts in a smaller snifter will serve you best.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really excited to try this one, big thanks to a generous BA.
Pours a dark chestnut brown that shows through a deep, clear copper when held up to light. The head is a thick beige cap hat recedes slowly.
Aroma is really nice with an initial bourbon sweetness, definitely lots of barrel character. Caramel malts, treacle, overripe dark fruits and even some lighter fruit notes. Some molasses and chocolate notes.
Taste is also heavily alcoholic with lots of bourbon notes, vanilla nd lots of oak. There is some caramelized brown sugar, caramel malts and pears. The finish is boozy with a hefty burn.
The mouthfeel is smooth but with a spicy, barrel-heavy character. Nice creamy feel.
The aroma really had me excited, world class almost, but the taste is just a step below. It’s still one hell of a beer, but still very hot with a ton of booze.

650mL silver waxthanks to ygtbsm94. Tawny, clear, amber pour with lower carbonation. Sweeter maple nose with richer, buttery bourbon. Taste is tangy, maple, pretty light feeling, with thicker ganache. Richer palate. Not too sticky sweet. Muted fruitiness. Nice stuff.
