3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had on tap at Brews in Granville. I can only assume based on the low ratings that this beer is much better on tap. For this tasted to me exactly like a decent watered down bourbon. Very light mouthfeel, some sticky sweetness, and a slight alcohol burn...Over all very drinkable.

I tried this on-tap at Conway and O’Rielly’s in Janesville, WI in mid 2012. Pours a golden amber color with a strong bourbon scent. Strong crisp taste of bourbon that is silky smooth that is barrel aged to perfection. I though this was a lot better than what the rating reflect.

This beer was very offensive. I have only had bourbon once or twice and while there was a lot of bourbon present in this beer it did not mesh well at all. I was with some people who were drinking jacobs best and I passed this on to them because I couldnt finish it. I got a lot of vanilla, bourbon, and not much else.

I’ve never seen this before-so I decided to try it today on-tap at Vintage Wine and Estates.
A- Body is a nearly transparent dark copper hue that is served with the perfect 1/2 finger foamy white head. The head has perfect retention the whole way down the glass.
S- Nose is pretty much what you would expect. Full of whiskey, rye, and malted barley. A hint of bourbon sweetness comes through but nothing really fantastic.
T- Hot, fresh, bourbon everywhere. Not aged enough to have that note of sweetness. A hint of malted barley and maybe rye in the background. A hint of wet oak as well. Finish is moderately astrigent and leaves behind a decent size alcohol heat.
M- Medium carbonation and medium weight body. More of a classic ale mouthfeel than a hot astrigent one.
D- This is a decent beer overall. It offers exactly what it advertises-bourbon flavor. Pretty one dimensional and not much else to it. Ironically-I’ve come across BBL "stouts" with an identical profile with the exception of the appearance.
