This poured a semi murky brown with an off white head. Aroma was of light barrel, caramel and toast. Flavor was oxidation, sweet brown sugar, and light barrel. Not too great.

Hickory Hops 2013 - Amber pour with a wispy head. The nose is of aerated sugars. Lightly toasted malt, cotton candy sugars, Maker's Bourbon. Lighter body, with a very smooth mouthfeel. Nice aged quaff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. Pours a clear dark brown color with a small off-white head. Nose has a little bit of bourbon in there, but itís not overpowering. Taste is ever-so-slightly sweet and with a bit of roasting underneath the bourbon. Not bad, but not all that great.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 27, 2013
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque dark ruby red brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The balanced aroma was hoppy malty brown malt and bourbon. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish with a mellow mild chocolate aftertaste. The balanced flavor contained notes of mildly vinous bourbon brown malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Pours murky opaque brown with one finger sandy tan had. Tons of bourbon on the nose, sharp vanilla notes and fruit. Very íbarrelyí flavor. Straight up bourbon/vanilla, very little base beer comes through. light to medium body.

Smells of cloying dark chocolate with a slightly bitter toasted vanilla edge and a bit of bourbon sweetness. On the first sip, banana and vanilla, then quickly buried by roasted grains and weak coffee. Aftertaste is classic bourbon, to me with a well-rounded sour toasted chocolate note. A nice improvement over the standard Working Manís.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear dark brown color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of whisky, chocolate and vanilla. The taste is whisky, chocolate, vanilla and a tart fruity finish. Medium bodied, high carbonation and fairly drinkable.

On tap at the brewpub. Not having been the greatest fan of the base beer, I found this a bit of an improvement. Slightly heftier pour than anticipated, with an oily consistency to it and a medium head. Understated nose, slightly sharp wood and bourbon (though nothing of a particularly distinctive character) and tons of choc. Flavors are more or less consistent with that summation, with a bit less bourbon presence than in the nose, and thus more of the chocolate from the base beer. Still a bit too thin, but on the whole I thought this one was an improvement.

On tap at the brewery also named as Smokingmanís Lunch. Brown pour with medium white head and some lacing. Aroma was chocolate and some spice, with a hint of the smoke. Smoke was more prevalent in the flavor, and the finish was full bodied. Interesting hybrid beer.

On tap at the brewery/taproom. Pours an attractively muddy medium brown. Not the biggest head Iíve ever seen, but a nice bit of foam around the edges after the waters settle. Nose hits with whiskey off the bat, but then a lot more starts happening... dark fruits (maybe some figs), and an assortment of stewed fruits show up, as well as some mild chocolate. Taste hints on some sourness and is surprisingly fruity. Not what youíd expect from a beer containing chocolate and aged in bourbon barrels... and I mean that in a good way. The drawback to this beer is that itís pretty light, so the taste ends up thinner than I wanted... but the consolation prize is that it wasnít strong and was a nice after-work pint that didnít give me a buzz before dinner. Yum.
