2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught (taster) at Bar Americain in NYC on 17-Mar-2016. Clear dark amber colour with a thin tan coloured head. Aroma of malt, caramel and I do get some (faint) bourbon and spices. Full body and soft/medium carbonation. Sweet flavour of malt, butterscotch and caramel. Some wood and vanilla. Not bad but tough to drink quickly.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
This beer tastes like Michelob Dark with some sort of bourbon syrup added to it.
I seriously doubt it spent more than 30 seconds inside of a bourbon barrel, which would fit its deScription of "up to six weeks" now wouldn’t it?

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2016 Tap at dino BBQ, BK. Pours dark honey, big white head, nice lacing. Aroma is cloying. Butterscotch, sloppy bourbon flavor. Wow, what a mess. Flavor is intense butterscotch, just like someone said: "Hey, I like beer. Let’s make one" but there’s no finesse. Like making lemonade with one lemon, water and a bag of sugar.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988 from Dumpster Box No. 2. The pour is a bright copper color with a thicker white head and a ton of lace. And a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is all barrel character. There is a sweet vanilla and a bit of bourbon to go with a little woodiness. The sweet booze is really throwing me for a loop. It's the only detectable thing. Ugh. The flavor is well... Hmm. It tastes like a liquid. There is a light sweet malt and a little vanilla, but that's it. It's a liquid that has absorbed some barrel character. The mouth feel is thick and syrupy with a barely-there carbonation and a bit so good, single-dimensional sweetness for an aftertaste. I don't know that I've had a beer that does so little. This is just liquid that's absorbed some vanilla and seems to exist.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared with koleminer20, out of Dumpster Day box #2. Aroma is caramel, bourbon, barrel, booze, medicinal. Appearance is light amber, white head. Taste is muted, slight caramel, metallic, toffee, almost non-existent. Mouthfeel is medium body, light to almost no carbonation, boozy aftertaste. Overall, I’d call it bad if it had any flavor.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Kicsi, rövid hab, vörösbe hajló borostyán szín. Határozott, kissé édeskés whiskys illat. Íze elsőre egy burbon whiskyre hajaz, de rögtön felbukkan mellette a komló keserűje. A csúcsponton betársul egy kis édeskés, malátás jelleg. Utóíze alapjában véve nagyon rövid, bár a végén felbukkan a tölgyfahordó is, ami még egy kicsit velünk marad. Nem rossz kis söröcske, érdekes ízvilággal.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light amber body with a few bubbles racing to the top. White head. The bourbon flavor is there but is smoothed out in the finish some by vanilla? Taste of alcohol is there. A more of a medium thin body. Definitely more of a sipping beer than a satisfying drinking one.
