3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2nd July 2010
Cheers George! Semi opaque very dark brown beer. Short lived brown head. Light palate, moderate carbonation. Woody chocolate and whisky nose. Dark cocoa like chocolate, sourish whisky and unsweet wood. Nicely joined up. The sour whisky is almost fruity. Finishes with a neutral palate and mild warmth. Decent.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draught at the brewpub, served in a snifter. The beer is a dark brown color with a medium beige head that recedes slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma has vinous notes along with oak, vanilla and malt. Rich and smooth body with flavors of bourbon, chocolate and dark fruit. The finish is fruity and malty with a slow bourbon burn. Enjoyable from start to finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by Brad and Art, thanks! Poured a hazy dark amber red with a brown head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of sweet grains, some raisins, milk chocolate and light fruits. Flavor was similar with sweet grains and raisins with some chocolate and bourbon in the finish. Needed a little something to balance the sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft samples at Jackie O’s. Pours brown with no head at all. The aroma has bourbon, chocolate, roasted malts, some cherry notes and a splash of honey sweetness. The flavor is quite interesting in that you get something from both parts. Bourbon, roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits and honey sweetness with a splash of vanilla. Soft carbonation. I enjoyed this blend and hope to see it again.

Growler sample at Muckfest 2009 Day 2. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of bourbon and vanilla with hints of chocolate and sugary honey. Bourbon and oaky flavor up front with caramel, chocolate and just a bit of tartness on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a growler this beer poured a black color with a minimal tan head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was raisin, rum, vinegar and a touch of coffee. The flavor was tart and bitter rum, raisin, wild yeasts, almost vinegar and a bit boozy. Turns dry, herbal and a bit astringent on the long tart rum and raisin finish. Medium body and a bit oily. Interesting.

Had at Hophead22’s Imperial Stout Tasting. Thanks Tim. Brown with almost no head. Bourbon and oak aroma. A sweet grainy taste with hints of honey and raisin, good chocolate flavor, tangy palate, a citrus oaky finish, and pleasant alcoholic sourness lingering in the back of the throat.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This poured a medium brown color with basically no head. Aroma was of dark roast, lots of sweet chocolate,a nd some dark fruits. Flavor was mainly dark fruits covered in chocolate, not much roast on the flavor as the aroma. AA bit oxidized but still nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Appearance is dark copper, like that of an old penny with a beige head. Aroma is of bourbon, chocolate, spruce, and a bit of raisin. Taste follows the nose with bourbon in the forefront and the remaining flavors playing a secondary role. All in all, this one is pretty tasty if you love bourbon.
