3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle from Beers of Europe] Chestnut with a large beige head. Rich and oaky throughout, with butter and vanilla in spades. Some toffee, a little red wine, but mainly the oak. It may be a little sweet and sticky for some, but I do like these beers, even if their special editions such as this are simply minor variations on their standard theme. Good stuff.

Aroma is a nice malty scent but not too much oak barrel. The oak in the flavor is subtle but very nice. Bubbly on the palate. Bitter but short aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured medium amber with a nice off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla, caramel, and buttered toffee with fresh green apple and earthy accents.. sweet overall. The flavor found sweet caramel, vanilla, and a little maple at the core.. dry oak throughout.. finished with caramel, vanilla, and lesser bourbon sweetness plus a little tangy pepper. Medium-bodied and quite sweet on the palate.. ok flow to it.. higher carbonation.. decent brew.

(bottle). A nice surprise from Todd to wind down the summer. Aroma and flavors similar to original but dialed down a bit for the summer season and mellowed by oak aging The mIld but rich and sweet malts make this one tough to session over the long-haul.

Bottle pour into tulip. Big, fine, persistent head. Aroma: vanilla and whiskey. Taste: candied fruit, vanilla; sweet oak on the aftertaste. Very interesting, but I am glad I didn’t buy a six-pack.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours medium slightly deep medium amber with more of the orange hues coming through with a good frothy head. Aroamas of banana candy, light rum, hint of whiskey, caramel, touch of vanilla, and slight toffee. Flavors of light whiskey, light banana(candied)-like ester, light toffee, light caramel, and light dry hops. Lightly sweet, complex, different in a good way than expected(thought it would be more of a mostly whiskey flavors), clean finish, and a light bitterness. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. The whiskey notes are nicely mellow and come out well in the mix of other flavors and aromas.
