3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
smell is strong of vanilla/oak with a sweetness to it...taste is smooth and creamy...very unique...slightly sweet that dissipates pretty quickly leaving just a touch of bitterness and butteryness on the finish, great for one, but more than that might be tricky because of the strong flavor...just misses the mark on being a great beer...but not sure how I’d change it...a bit more mouthfeel perhaps?

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Pours a rusty red-orange with essentially no head. Aroma is medium orange zest up front that is quickly replaced with heavy caramels, followed by whiffs of vanilla and light oak. Sweet caramel flavor accompanied with stale straw. Finish has a little alcohol note and only there do I get some lightly toasted wood and bourbon (especially in the lingering aftertaste). Overly carbonated and bordering on cloyingly sweet. Thanks to Elwood62 for the bottle!

Bottle. Oranhe slight hazy. Strong pencil- like oak, sweet toffee, light vanilla roast woody nose. Full bodied, surprisingly drinkable, nice. Slight sweet malty. Nice, again, with the lamb fillet, heart- dishofakind served by.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light, sweet. Right on the money with the bourbon taste. Doesn’t linger too long. Medium feel in the mouth. Could drink a few of these back to back.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bourbon barrel ale ain’t no joke. This one tastes as much of bourbon as it does of beer. Unfortunately, as this is a beer, that means it is way too sweet.

Bottle 0,335ltr: Clear amber colored brew with an sweet bitter taste and fair hints of Bourbon aromas. Not bad but i must say an easy Barrel Aged beer for once, and my first Kentucky tick.
