On tap at the brewery, it pours a light clear brown with no head, the aroma is of funk, wood and a touch of booze, the taste is woody with a slight sourness mixed in with funk, pretty good but not amazing.

9/05/2009: Grumpy Troll Woody Stein... Aroma: Apple cider, carmelized sugar, acetone. Appearance: Murky brown (chesnut) color with nothing on top. Flavor: Tastes like naturally fermented apple cider; sharp alcohol than burns. Palate: Medium-bodied; hard to actully get down. Overall: Not that good; the barrel definitely seems to have gone fruity and sour or something...

Draught (ABV 7.5% / 25 IBUs) at The Grumpy Troll Brew Pub in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin. Rating #3 for this beer.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Hazy mahogany pour with a scant beige head. Taffy apple aroma: the first whiff is an apple cider aroma that never fully fades. Further appreciation of the aroma yields more caramelized scents, toffee, vanilla. Flavor blends sweet, sour, and tannic elements into a good harmony. Apple cider is the first impression, segueing into cream soda, caramel, vanilla. The malt backbone is well paired with a very pronounced oakiness. Earthy tannic wooden flavors are more pronounced than the bourbon per se. The wood and the caramel fade together into a long, slow linger. Medium body, lively palate, just slightly astringent from the tannins.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2009
On draught at the brewpub in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy caramel colored brew with a thin and fast dissioving off-white head that dissipates clean with no ring or lacing. Aroma of caramel and vanilla, dark pitted fruits, some tart berries, raisin and bourbon. Taste is medium bodied, very little carbonation with flavors of tart berries and sour apple, vanilla, light caramel and a hint of bourbon. Finish has a mild lingering bitterness with an aftertaste of tart apple and bourbon that slowly disappears.
