ReggieDunlap (3042) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Pours clear gold with a creamy medium white head...great lacing and retention. Aroma has bananas and apples...Light spice...mild booze..comes across as an apple brandy. Flavor follows suit...more like apple brandy than bourbon though the finish does bring in a notable warming bourbon. Tasty!

Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. aroma has some fruits and spice, oak, and booziness. flavor is very oaky and a bit boozy with fruit and spice taking a back seat...a bit out of balance. mouthfeel is light and the finish is oaky/boozy and dry. too much booziness without the flavor.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 29, 2012
On tap at Iron Hill Wilmington. Pours a hazy, light golden color with a small white head that quickly fades to a cap. Aroma is lots of bourbon with a bit slightly fruity and citric note, pepper, and a touch of oak. The bourbon flavor was big and right up front. As it warmed the bourbon faded and the sweetness and the fruits became more apparent. Finish has a slight alcohol burn. Full bodied, thick, resinous mouth feel.

Growler from Phoenixville, Pours a light clear yellow, nose is strong with booze almost acetone. First sip is pure hooch. Feels like something made next to a prison radiator. Terrible, terrible beer.

Nice color and body. Pretty big aroma of some spice, alcohol, bourbon, vanilla, oak, very complex and inviting. Taste is smooth and warming, lots of bourbon, vanilla, wood and little spice. Rich malts and some hints of dark fruit. Very good.

EithCubes (4811) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Draught at the West Chester location. Hazy golden pour, lacing white head. Aroma of apple juice, white grapes and white wine, woody bourbon. Heavy bourbon taste, only mildly restrained alcohol in the lightish body. Fresh flowers, a little vinegar, apple juice. Doesnt stand out much for bourbon beers, bourbon dominates the lovely tripel character a bit much, still good.

37.5 cL hand bottled, courtesy of Storm. Pours cloudy orange with a small and diminished white head. Mild spiced and honey herbal aroma. Spiced and dense yeasty phenolic. Dense alcoholic too. Ends spiced and phenolic. Too dominant on the phenolic notes for my liking.
