3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle. Dark clear pour, slight head. Very strong oak aroma with a healthy scent of bourbon. Flavor is coffee with a hint of vanilla. Not bad but not my favorite in the class.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse... Aroma: bourbon, candies, caramel, toffee, alcohol. App: clear copper, almost no head. Taste and palate: average carbonation, light body, light sweetness, watery and dry. Brownies, vanilla taste. Overall: appearance is so so, taste is too light as if I’m drinking water. For a bourbon ale was looking for something way more funkier than that. Funny to say but too easy to drink for a bourbon barrel ale imo, but ABV is quite high so we need to be careful.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured light amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of booze, fudge, roast malt and some vanilla. Medium to full body, flavour much as the aroma.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours light-rusty nail with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is candied fruit, a little sarsaparilla, finishing with a vanilla, toffee, almost cough drop flavor. Overall, none of these flavor are appealing.

Pours a caramel color with a medium head. Earthy notes, with a rich, whiskey-like flavor. Unique and very tasty.

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.
