3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Best in a snifter or chalice, however it’s OK from a pub glass too.
Aroma is nice, you can smell the bourbon, and there’s a vanilla and butterscotch aroma. It gets your attention.
Pours a light copper color with a modest head.
The bourbon flavor adds a nice kick to what would otherwise be a mild ale. It’s a nice finishing touch to an evening.

You had me at Bourbon....saw this one and had to try it. Pours clear light orange out of bottle. White head that has a little staying power. Not much of an aroma at all.... Has a bizarre taste, kind of medicinal. Was not what I had expected...

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Weakest bourbon barrel ale, with nasty vanilla finish. Weak in everything: aroma, appearance, taste, palate, and finish.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours coppery color with no head to speak of. Nice aroma of caramel, vanilla, and oak. Flavor does not live up to aroma. Washed out woody flavor and extremely flat. Meh.

Bottle. Poured light golden color with no head. Distinct vanilla, bourbon, and butter notes but a bit weak. I prefer Innis & Gunn’s offering over this one.

Not pleasing, tastes like watered down bourbon. Very little carbonation, finishes very hard.

A unique brew that combines a smooth ale with the flavor and alcohol of Kentucky bourbon. I highly enjoy the regular Kentucky Ale as well. With an ABV of over 8% it packs a whallop and is perfect for dinner or exchanging wine for a fine craft brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Was not bad but I expected more. It had a pleasant woodsy smell. Poured a nice deep color. It had a sharp alcohol taste. I did not pick up much flavor from the wood, or vanilla like I was expecting. It had a harsh finish. It could be I got a bad bottle.

Draught at the public in savannah. Too faint for my taste. Could use more barrel time.

On tap in Hudson, WI. Interesting to have something besides a stout barrel aged. I did it, although the bourbon aromas and taste is a bit too heavy for this one.
