Draft sample. Poured reddish brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy malt, bourbon cherry wood and alcohol aroma. Moderate to full body with a smooth slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy cherry bourbon biitersweet flavor to medium complex bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met with a complex standout beer.

hopscotch (8893) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Cloudy brown ale with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Good retention. The nose is a luxuriant swirl of bourbon, brown sugar, toffee and mocha. Full-bodied and chewy with soft carbonation. The flavor furnishes tons of bourbon intermingled with sweet caramel and brown sugar. The finish is all about the bourbon. I do love bourbon. Thanks goes out to darkguardian for sharing this world class rarity!

phaleslu (6286) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2013
22 oz. bottle from alexsdad06- thanks again, Brad! 2012 release, bottle 9/192. Pours a cloudy amber color with a beige head. Bourbon barrel notes lead the way here, with vanilla, caramel, and brown sugar on top of some Belgian dried and dark fruit character. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. Very good.

DrSilverworm (6026) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Thin khaki head, mostly clear dark brown color. Some lace. Prominent bourbon barrel nose, with a little alcohol warmth. Woody, spice aroma. Light, crisp carbonation, good dry texture. Light smokey sweet taste.. It’s an interesting, complex aroma. Some sweet boozy caramel malts. Some nice funky belgian yeast qualities in there, and spices. Good woody aftertaste. Interesting ale to sip.

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of pine hops, bourbon, brown sugar and some tea. The flavor is a bit different. I get a lot of roasted malt and chocolate notes, as well as some oak, bourbon, pine and alcohol. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(750ml bottle thanks to errlski) cloudy medum amber, fine tn bubble, soapy coating bubbles. Nose of american hops, cream, caramel, bourbon, wet barrel, light honey. Taste of bourbon, alcohol, fruity, american hops, strong and not very drinkable, but a decent beer.

Draft at Jackie O-s. Pours a dark mahogany color with a fine creamy beige film. The aroma is heavy on the bourbon side with sweet caramel, black cherry, oak with a slight spicy note. The flavor has sweet caramel and toffee, bourbon, vanilla, light cherry notes and oak. Medium plus bodied and was very enjoyable as a sipper. This worked well with the more subdued atmosphere void of the bottle sharing craziness that used to go on.
