22 oz bottle. Bottled 02/18/13 Thick dark brown pour with amber highlights. Thick solid mocha colored head. Strong aroma of bourbon, whisky, sweet caramel, dark fruits, and the barrels. Taste is much of the same. Super sweet dark fruits, hint of funk, loads of bourbon. wood, whisky comes in on the finish. Interesting. A little too sweet for my liking. Super dry finish.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a deep brown with a foamy tan head. Flavor is sweet malts, bourbon, caramel, and tart. Lively carbonation, thick and syrupy body. One of the most complex brews I’ve ever had!!!

No brew has ever made me feel this way before. It’s like a love making session in a bottle. Thick... Sweet... Sour... Just... Freaking... Amazing. If you are on the fence about this one trust me, buy it!

Surprisingly works! Nice sweetness. Some bourbony infusion. And funk on top, but in a complimentary way. This is the type of sour I like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber red colour. Malty sweet aroma, some heavily caramelized crystal and toasted malt with a sweet cherry fruitiness and a spicy hop bouquet throughout. Pine and earthy/mildly resinous hops. Sweet malts up front balance with the strong hoppiness later on. A bit of honeyed character. Some pine and black pepper on the finish.

22oz bottle (release #8) pours with a nice dark body that supports a thin short lived mocha head. The aroma has big smooth bourbon booze notes that mix with a bourbon sweetened tart rye whiskey note as well as a light degree of sweet dark fruity esters in the background. The taste is similar as the sweet smooth bourbon tugs and pulls on the tart, almost red wine, barrel like rye whiskey notes. Between the big barrel notes I get pleasing yet too brief and mild sweet kettle caramelization and sweet dark fruity esters. This offers up lots and lots of barrel but the play between the sweet smooth bourbon and tart dry rye whiskey works.

Rando7 (733) - Iowa, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle pours dark purplish brown with beautiful dense tan head. Aroma dark fruits and a little sourness. Taste just a mess with pomegranate and dark fruits, hint of bourbon and some oak. Finish oak and alcohol. Nice full carbonated palate. Doesn’t work for me.

bottled, thanks to bu11zeye, dark brown pour , really nice mix of red wine and malty chocolate, just the right amount of sourness

Dark blackish red, thin head. Nose is vinager, whisky, wood. Sour thin attack. Long lingering finish. Not my thing.

Cybercat (3268) - Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Strong aroma has a definite overtone of bourbon and whisky, plus a malty hint. Pours a rich, warm coffee brown with a thick dirty tan head. Flavor is quite sweet, a little too sweet for a beer - sorry, a point off there. It has a strong bourbon/whisky overtone and hints of malt and caramel. De trop de caramel, in fact. A good effort, but not my cup of tea - er, stein of beer. I’m glad other people liked it, though. Texture is thick and syrupy, fairly fizzy. I am drinking this, and it ain’t headed for the sink.
