Big and delicious for your íperty mouth. Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts. A bit of earthy spice and a scintilla of dark cherries. Itís a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.

Poured from 12oz bottle into small taster glass. Aroma: Hard to put my finger on the aroma. A little fruity and a little bit of alcohol. Maybe some vanilla. Appearance: dark carmel brown and very little head. Soft carbonation. Taste: Sweet, whiskey, vanilla, and cream soda Palate: Very creamy. reminds me of a cream soda with a shot of whiskey in it. The alcohol isnt too overpowering though but you can tell its there. Overall: Very good beer. High alcohol %. Its definitely a sipper. Probably wont have this again but enjoyed it.

On tap at Founders brewpub. Hazy brown in a snifter. Earthy aroma of bourbon, alcohol, smoke, and caramel. All that same stuff is in the taste as well. It is high on the sweet side, but it works well here. Love it!

12 ounce bottle that pours a cloudy amber color, aroma of sweet malt, oak, and booze. Flavors of malt, spicey oak, and a twinge of boozey aftertaste. Was a great night cap that I would want mor of.

weihenweizen (3188) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours really dark hazy amber with tan finger head that disspates fast. Some lacing, heavy body, sticky texture, low carbonation, and nice sweet aroma. Taste is malty oak, bourbon, hint of alcohol, and a hint of vanilla in the finish. Based on the rating I really expected more.

12oz bottle, at the Jackie-Os bar. Almost not-clear brown color, minimal tan head, leaving good lace. Big body, crisp light carbonation, smooth, aged texture. Nice sweet taste, but kinda boozy, spicy, dark fruit and a heavier bourbon aroma. Really good, assertive, but not repulsive like a lot of barrel-aged beers I try. Delightful hop bitterness. Awesome looking suspended dark particles, inside. Awesome, strong, but not-too-strong aftertaste.

callmemickey (4285) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 A: Dark brownish red body. Just a coating of off white head. Very little lacing. S: Bourbon and all that comes with it. Vanilla, oak, alcohol... then comes the beer... dark chocolate and caramel.. not much in the way of hops, but thats ok D: This is like jack and coke meets beer... its rather nice... the aromas in the nose are well positioned in the taste profile.. nice bourbon finish M: Smooth. Slightly carbonated. Slightly alcoholic burn too. O: I donít know. For as much as I enjoyed the beer I just didnít want another. I like bourbon aged beers (including KBS/oaked aged yeti/etc) and this is the first one I wasnít willing and ready to have another.

Bottle. The scotch overpowers the aroma, but once it settled, I could pick up the oaky caramel scents with malt notes. The appearance was a bit underwhelming, a chocolate brown after a silky pour with no head and zero lacing. The palate was a smooth textured medium to light body and the taste just exploded. The taste was a scotch alcohol assault similar to the scent. However, a sweet, cream and caramel persisted that reminded me of those cow tail candies gas stations all seem to sell (which I liked). The taste then settled warmly to the tongue. Overall, Iím hooked. Iíll be cellaring some of this.
