1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This brew pours a nice honey color with a thin head. Head is white and does not linger or leave lace on the glass. Smells of whiskey, that’s really all I can smell... Whiskey. Tastes of whiskey, that’s all I can taste is whiskey (bourbon, I guess). Thin palate, with medium carbonation. I cannot drink this beer. I really don’t like it much at all. Too much booze flavor for me.

I enjoy bourbon and I enjoy beer. So i figured that combining the two might be good...I was wrong. I really didnt like this beer. To be completely honest, the bourbon flavor was really gross. It ruined the beer. Sorry but bourbon and beer were not meant to be mixed.

This was a bad beer. I like bourbon and I like Kentucky Ale. Somehow, the marriage of these two things turned out to be an unholy mess. The bourbon flavor was sickening and made it undrinkable. Maybe I got a bad batch, but it was so awful I didn’t want to try it again.

Pours a deep golden with a small off white head. The aroma is nice with hints of bourbon, vanilla, and caramel malt. The flavor has a very distinctive bourbon taste with some hops, vanilla, and caramel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Aroma: Nice bourbon and woody notes. Brown sugar, coconut, vanilla, bourbon, and oak. Behind all that bourbon and wood is a light and sweet maltiness. Appearance: Dark golden in color and clear. Off-white head was small and frothy with fair retention. Not much lacing. Flavor: Bourbon and oak front and center. Coconut, brown sugar, bourbon, alcohol, vanilla, wood. Sweet maltiness is the backbone for all that. Not much bitterness and a sweet finish. Palate: Medium-light bodied and watery at times. Moderate carbonation. Overall: Although I enjoyed this, there was much room for improvement. The base beer seems too flimsy to support all that bourbon barrel flavor. Weak mouthfeel. Some more hops would offset the sweet finish.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear, golden amber with a little lacing head. Slight chemical nose of bourbon. Flavour is light bourbon, somewhat a clear flavour, but still light. Quite interesting light bodied yet powerful flavoured. Ends with a lasting bourbon flavour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. [Courtesy of papsoe, yet another great tasting @ Henrik´s] Small white fizzy head that mostly diminished. Clear flat looking body with a golden color. Spare lacework. Wow for 4.5 % this was very complex with clear and heavy notes of bourbon that was actually quit lovely. Also notes of caramel, fruit and maybe a hint of oak and vanilla. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with light bitterness. Lovely lingering bourbon finish. What a very different and extremely nice brew. 18-09-2007

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of jsquire. Clear, deep golden with a small, off-white head. Distinct bourbon aroma. Medium body with lightly sweet caramel but otherwise completely dominated by smooth bourbon flavours. The finish is dry. Quite intriguing an idea to bourbon barrel such a "small beer". 180907

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy golden color. Funky aroma, of light Bourbon vanilla, candies and glue. Sweet mouthfeel, with some sweet vanilla too (which is not bad), but lacking of other elements. It has a nice Bourbon vanilla touch, but the rest is missing. And it’s quite strange.
