Is it possible for it too be too bourboney? Strong aroma and flavor of bourbon. Better than expected.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2012 May2010. a bit light (color and body) for the style, a decent light amber ale greatly improved with bourbon. The bourbon flavor was very much upfront but not overpowering or overly woody to knock you over the head. This would be a fantastic introductory beer for any drinkers that reject or assume they would reject a bourbon-aged beer. I gave a taste to several people in the standard beer-drinking group I was with and several ordered pints for themselves. granted, we had just visited a bourbon distillery the day before...
Aug12. Has a sour/sour mash component that could be very off-putting for some. This draft version is huge buttery hit.

Had it at the Chicago Craft Beer Festival 6/22/13. Had a clear amber hue, with a light head. Very powerful bourbon aroma and taste. Beer?

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Sample at Beverage World, a clear golden color with small head, immediate bourbon aroma. Taste is light, like an ale, with the sweet bourbon bite at the end. I’m not really a fan. Too sweet and not enough malts and hops coming through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark golden pour with a small white head. The dominant aroma and flavour is bourbon with some oak, malt and faintest hint of citrus. Lemon peel I think. Overall very sweet and dry and became a chore as it warmed. Medium carbonation with strong warming alcohol notes.

A pretty brown-golden look like a sarsaparilla. Malt sweetness under a heavy bourbon aroma. Bourbon and vanilla were there in the taste, but it felt too thin. Very sweet. Smooth and watery mouthfeel. I don’t want too watery of a beer if I am drinking a bourbon aged beer, so pretty disappointed.

Quite surprised by this, golden color expecting a darker hue, but not present, slight head. Nose..booze, vanilla, faint oak..taste really reminds me of a cream soda, albeit an adult version. Interesting mouthfeel and the abv makes itself known, however nothing really is memorable..Ok

Dark orange. Vanilla, whisky, caramel, toffee and yeasts make up the flavor. Really good on tap, even better in a sniffer! Best of all, it’s smooth and creamy!

Pours yellow/orange color with a small white head that dissapears quickly. Sweet malty aroma with only a hint of bourbon and oak. Flavor is sweet and oaky with some vanilla. the finish is long and bordering on too sweet. I think there is something to this beer, it just needs to be balanced out somehow.
