Growler thanks to the Cheese Man. Fizzy and pours brown and bright amber in the light. One of the best noses Iíve ever had the pleasure to smell. Lots of bourbon, some maple definitely, hints of caramel and oak. The caramel comes out in the flavor, whereas the whiskey notes, while still present subside. Hints of a funkiness behind it. Very warming. An absolutely wonderful beer.

On tap at Roziís pours cloudy dark brown color with light tan head. Aroma is bourbon, oak, and maple. Opulent mouthfeel. Flavor follows the nose and has a nice bourbon compliment to the base beer. Sweet caramel flavors lend to the bourbon and finishes with a semi-sweet maple flavor. All the flavors meld together nicely and not one out does the other. There is a smoothness to this beer that makes me want more. Outstanding beer. One of the best Iíve ever had.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2010 On tap at Roziís. Wonderful balance to a barrel aged version of the dirty bastard. Dark amber color. It does not overpower your palate, but it makes you aware of what is going on (maple and bourbon).

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Thanks to cheeseman for sharing! Maple, caramel, and bourbon on the nose, smooth vanilla and toffee as well. Pours a dark amber red with a thin white head. Very smooth flavor, bourbon, oak, and vanilla, very caramelly with a mild bitterness in the finish. This is a great beer!

Growler, courtesy Cheeseman and miketd. Pours a clear crimson color with a tight, spongy, khaki colored head. Lasting a good while, the foam leaves wet, drooping arches of lacing that slowly meander down the glass. The aroma is quite enticing, starting out with an ultra-malty caramel malt base with hints of earthy cocoa. Oaky, soft bourbon and sweet, nutty maple notes seem the perfect compliment. Flavors are even better, deliciously smooth and slightly warming, with the sour mash bourbon and vanilla-maple just setting off the slightly smoky caramel. Notes of earthy hoppiness add bittering balance. Medium-full, smooth, and velvety, with soft but lively carbonation, the palate is warm, but not hot. Itís just a delicious slow sipper. Awesome beer.

Growler pour courtesy the very sexy Cheeseman. Pours a dark reddish amber with a thick tan head. Big thick aroma, lots of maple syrup, vanilla, and bourbon. Taste is thick smooth malt, maple syrup, bourbon and vanilla. A real sipper, this was fabulous.

gkost (1709) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2009
Poured red/orange. Nose was sweet sweet malts, maple syrup, bourbon, booze, wood, sweet fruits. Flavor was mild bourbon, fresh wood, some musty basement, fruity esters, sweet malts, maple syrup, smoked malts, earthiness, hints of aromatic hops, mild oxidation. One hell of a beer. Thanks for sharing Mark.

Growler from beer event. Pours red-brown with an off-white head. Nose is bourbon, maple, candy, malt, nuts, and lots of sweetness. Flavor has lots of bourbon but leans toward maple with the scotch ale base. Absolutely badass beer.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2010 Dark brown pour with an offwhite head. Aroma is maple candy, Booze, caramel, wood. Flavor is awesome maple sugar and wood, one of the best maple beers Ive ever had. Sweet but not too sweet, offset by really nice woodiness and caramel malt depth. Really peaty as well, with bourbon booze notes that come out as it warms a bit in the glass. Dank shit.
