2.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
On tap at karbach brewing. Aroma is the most appealing part about this beer, the nose is bourbony and chunks of vanilla. Its golden brown with a tan white head. This beer just tastes like bourbon with a tiny bit of hops desperately clinging on to the end. Theres not a lot of depth or balance to this beer. Basically its what Iíve come to expect from Karbach, very forgettable.

On tap at Flying Saucer for IPA Day. Pours a cloudy brown with large creamy beige head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is oak, brown sugar, and bourbon. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet bourbon flavor, oak, and light sweet hop. Alcohol present but not overpowering, a very good variation on the original.

On tap at Hay Merchant. Pours a cloudy amber with a small frothy off white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a strong oak and floral hop. Medium mouthfeel with a strong bitter hop and oak with a boozy finish. A good boozier version of the original.
