Good but a little boozy. The aroma is straight up bourbon and wood. It was a pretty copperish color with no head. Smooth and oily mouthfeel with little to no carbonation. Strong bourbon and caramel flavors. Some sweetness with a lot of complex malts and sugars to follow. Very little hops presence. My only critique is that the bourbon strength took away from the overall character. Still good though.

Chill bottled offering courtesy tossed by Pantanap. Apple cider notes. Soft apple bourbon. Apple brandy. Sweet toffee. Soft warming booze. Low carb. Flavors meld together nicely. Some lifting involved.

Bottle from the source shared at the family Xmas gathering, thanks STEVE! Pours a muddy browish tan with a white head. Aroma has vanilla and sweet malts, with bourbon. And bourbon. Taste is sweet butterscotch, vanilla, bourbon and some caramel. Quite alcoholly. Medium bodied and cloying. Finishes sweetly bourbon-y. Will be interested to try regular Fred and Fred from the Wood after this.

Mora2000 (5530) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2013
2013 vintage. Brown pour with a small brown head. The aroma and flavor are outstanding. I get a ton of bourbon notes as well as all of the associated flavors - maple, vanilla and oak. There is also a good bit of molasses and alcohol, as well as some heavy caramel and toffee notes. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Outstanding beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark red with minimal head. Weird tastes all over this, most I cannot identify. I get the bourbon, some wood, fruits and floral. Really difficult to drink a bottle of this, not very good. Hugely disappointed.
