From the 8 pack can assortment from Hy-Vee in Rock Island. Pours dark red/brown with a short lasting head (beige). Malt is caramel with a slightly sugary chocolate note balanced by an herbal hop mix. The 7% ABV is hidden well by this mix. Yeast influence is not real noticeable. I recommend this.

CanIHave4Beers (3322) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Pours a very dark brown with a small head.

The aroma is roasty and vanilla forward with some light oak and chocolate notes.

The flavor is sweet, itís got some coconut and bourbon, itís roasty and had a bit of licorice about it.

On tap at the brewery. Dark brown appearance with a lingering tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, oak, roasted malts, chocolate and caramel, Similar flavor, medium sweetness with a light fruity tang. Medium body, creamy and smooth. Complex and tasty.

keepersj12 (2714) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2014
A strange brew. Pours like a coke with a small head. The aroma has bourbon and some fruit. The fruit comes thru in the taste with a lot of bourbon and a bit of sourness.

Can. Nice very dark brown pour with a big frothy tan head. Whiskey and sour dark fruit on the nose, more on the taste - is this infected? Total fail.

igneous1 (1500) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - NOV 26, 2013
can. color is cola, clear, almost no head. big bourbon notes in the aroma, also hints of alcohol. flavor has more going on with nutty malts, raisin, plenty of bourbon. not bad, but i think the bourbon is a bit overly done.

djroehler (290) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Can. Pour is clear brown with red edges, medium mocha head. Aroma is bourbon heavy, some malt and nuttiness. Taste is massive bourbon and vinegar, some malt in the background, but itís covered up. I had higher hopes.

Can from johns grocery. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some solid lacing in the glass. Sour on the nose south some bourbon notes. The bouton sourness really comes across on the tongue. Finsihes fairly clean. Itís good stuff. I like it.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2013 Unintentional or intentional, this one is quite sour and infected. Kind of has that leathery fruit sour tinged touch that so many whales have these days. Not really that good, so far out there that is hard to imagine what they might have intended. Not a fun beer to drink alone...but OK if you think of it as an Oud Bruin. An oddity and a presumed fluke. Batch Two...can generously sent directly from the brewery. Opaque brown-black. Not much of a head...oily residue. Unfortunately still suffers from some sour, infected tones. Tolerable enough, caramel and brown malt with a slight sour tang. Uniquely balanced I suppose, but still a sub par product...donít worry about barrels until you can brew an uninfected beer.
