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.

This is my gold standard. Everything about this beer appeals to me. There are a couple of local pubs that are on top of my visit list simply because they have KBA on tap. To quote Nacho Libre, "It is da beeest"

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Slightly hazy golden colour, small, collapsing white head. Sweet malty aromas with lots of caramel, vanilla and wood. Taste is also sweet with decent bourbon notes, some vanilla, toffee, low hop bitterness. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, oily texture. Nice barrel aged beer, but not so special.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Sour beer. Tastes like it didn’t ferment properly. Pours amber with some milkiness. Little head. Sour aroma, but nothing like having a decent hoppy IPA

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very unique beer really one of a kind. Great nuances of bourbon on the nose and pallet. The deep malt flavor is complemented nicely by caramel and vanilla notes.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a cask at the 2016 Atlanta Cask Ale Festival.
Very pleasing aroma with a load of caramel and faint bourbon.
The flavor provides a much stronger bourbon barrel effect with loads of woody barrel and toffee notes, moderate bourbon notes as well as some vanilla. Buttery flavor and feel.
Overall: Certainly one of the best from this brewery. Highly recommended for fans of BBA beers.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy gold with a quick white head. Nose is straight bourbon. Other than a few hop and bread notes, flavor is all bourbon too. It is exactly as advertised and not one bit more.
