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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle. Amber pour with little head. Smells like whiskey. Tastes of butter and bourbon. Not bad but not my favorite bourbon aged.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. A clean pour with minimal head. Aroma of vanilla, sweet syrup, and hint of green apples. Pretty sweet, with a fair amount of carbonation. Thin watery mouthfeel. Certainly some familiar flavors, but there’s a thinness that’s hard to describe.

Buttery sweet. Good brew. Smooth feel and finish. Taste the boubon aging in this one.

Aroma of bourbon!! And oak!! And flavor is bourbon!! And oak!! Yikes!! Light orange color; tiny white head. Medium-light body. I love oaked beers, and this has a really great, massive bourbon flavor, but it’s over done and makes this one-dimensional.
