3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
December 17, 2013 - bottle at Carmella’s. Seemed to be a clear dark orange pour with limited head, but it was dark in the restaurant. Aroma was bourbon and malt. Taste was heavy on the cheaper watered down bourbon with some malt. It seemed to get a bit better as it warmed, but still not on the higher end of barrel aged beers.

Bottle. Amber with small off white head. Aroma of caramel and malt sweetness and light bourbon notes. Medium body with caramel and overly sweet.

Strong bourbon flavors but seemed to lack some carbonation in my opinion. Also, it was very sweet, which was a little over powering.

12oz bottle, shared by Dan from work. Thanks. Pours a clear, light amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is boozy, bourbon, vanilla. Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, caramel, vanilla, oak, light bourbon, a little nutty, with a sweet, boozy finish. This is reminiscent of some bourbon barrel barleywines, but toned down a few notches. A little underwhelming for me, but not bad.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 Vielen Dank an Sean für dieses Bier!
Toller Geruch nach Burbon Whisky. Hellorangene Farbe im Glas.
Der Antrunk ist sehr mild, keinerlei Alkohol spürbar. Toll weich. Milde Burbon-Töne mit einem kleinen Hauch von Lakritz. Weiches Malz, angenehm vanillig-süßlich. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang, burbon-weich, angenehm, vanillig, rund toll!
--> Sehr tolles Bier. Der Alkohol nirgendwo herauszuschmekcne, aromenvoll, faszinieren. Ich würde sagen, eins der Besten amerikanischen Biere, die ich bis jetzt getrunken habe. Weder extrem süß, noch extrem aufdringlich, extrem herb oder extrem alkoholisch! Sehr zu empfehlen!

Tap at Grill Next Door. Pours a nice clear amber with a lacy white head. Aroma of pencil eraser, vanilla. Flavor is a caramel malt forward amber with some bourbon notes. A bit thin, but better than it’s ratings here would indicate.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Bourbon aroma up front followed by notes of vanilla and oak. Pours clear copper colored with a thin white head and very good lacing. Good, smooth bourbon flavor with a good bit of vanilla. Finishes smooth with the oak coming through and just a bit of booze. Good, warming beer for cold days.

Super great bourbon ale. Not what I expected but in good way. Thin and light with a warming affect for those cold winters nights. Exception. A must for a relaxing ale.

12oz into a stemmed boulevard glass, pours a nice orange/copper mix, head a small and nicely coushioned and rings the glass wiht sproadic islands. Aroma is boozy, bourbon, rye, whiskey, vanilla, some ripe cherry and cough syrup. Taste is more whiskey, vanilla, oak/cedar and lush apples and berries. Abv is noticeable but does not subtract from the enjoyment. Its a smooth drinker with the bourbon leading the way down the hatch, there is also a sweetness in the aftertaste reminiscant of sweet rasins and licorice. Im curioius to try just the kentucky ale to really see where this is develped from. A nice sipper, but goes down faster than one would think as the drinkability is very fluid.

This here really is an interesting beer. Basically a learning sessions as to how barrel aging effects beer. Poured a dark red to brown with a beige head. Aroma was of lots of bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark fruits and caramel. Flavor was similar, sweet bourbon, and mild english strong notes in the back. Solid offering..
