On tap at Caponeís. Dark mahogany. Really nice brown sugar, caramel and vanilla aromas. Caramel and bourbon flavors. Medium-to-full body with a syrupy mouthfeel. Sweet with a somewhat abrupt finish. Iíll definitely be trying this one in the bottle.

This is the second time Iíve had this but first time rating, I think this one is a little bit older than the previous one I had but that is a good thing in this case. Tons of vanilla and oak in the aroma with hints of bourbon and maple. It smells like one of those amazing breakfasts with tons of waffles and pure maple syrup... The taste holds all those aromas in well and almost mimics what you smell. This ale is enjoyable and not overpowering in any way, I would say this is one you want to return to over and over again!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark red brown colored beer with a slight tan head. Didnít get a ton out of the aroma, mostly sweet malt, vanilla, and some booze. Flavour was full of malts, some bourbon flavours. Pretty sweet malts but not sugary or syurpy. Very enjoyable and a nice lively body.

12oz bottle from CBX. Pours a dark reddish brown color with almost no head at all. Distinct bourbon smell, but not overly powerful. Of course the initial taste is bourbon. The thing I like about this beer though is that its not a giant slap in the face with the bourbon. Even though its very distinct, it doesnít make you feel like your drinking straight bourbon. Its a smooth, mild flavor. I could drink a few of these without getting sick of them. Good beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep red-brown color; clear and perty. Vanilla, oak, rich caramel malt aroma, though the bourbon nose kind of takes over. Big whiskey flavor, oak and vanilla, with a bit of smoke. Smooth and full body. Tasty, though a bit too much on the whiskey. Good bitter finish. Not near as good as the regular Dirty Bastard.

What a nice treat. Fantastic aroma of bourbon. Reminded me of a scotch ale aged in bourbon barrels. I got a four pack and savored every bottle. I poured it in a small wine glass and enjoyed first the rich aroma and then the deep flavors that this brew had to offer. Oak, bourbon and complex and interesting malt flavors. I want more!

Pretty good beer. Dark brown pour. Malt, bourbon, black licorice, smokey, nuts, coffee, dark dried fruits. Pretty well balanced, but i think it was a bit too creamy/thick in the mouth as the sweetness was a touch too strong for my liking. Still an excellent example of this style.
