Snifter at Timothy O’Toole’s during Chicago Craft Beer Week. Clearly I’m showing more love for this than most raters; maybe coming from a tap helps? Golden bourbon color: the brewmaster really picked his grains well. A thin ring of foam with a scrum of bubbles in the center. The smell is bourbon and branch, a moderate amount of alcohol. The taste carries through with that smooth Kentucky bourbon impression. Limited bittering, just enough to stay out of the way. Impression is right between sippin’ and slurpin;. Besides, this was just $5.50, great price for a Streeterville bar.

From NOTES. Poured into a snifter at the Ginger Man NYC.
I want to LOVE this beer, but I just don’t.
Very nice bourbon flavor, not overpowering but subtle and complimentary. My biggest gripe is the somewhat watery mouthfeel.

Pours hazy orange with no head. Nose is sour. Aromas are malt, rotten fruits and bourbon. Low carbonation, light body. Long sour finish. Not my stuff.

Had this the other day and loved it. Poured in a nice wide mouthed glass to let the the aroma out. The taste had a faint bourbon hint, with some slight oak after taste. Loved it, and highly recommend. As stated it is a sipping beer, alcohol content is over 8%

Bottle. Clean, amber in colour with a small head. In aroma caramel malt, bourbon, oak. In taste malty, nutty with vanilla and coconut. Pleasant warming from alcohol, medium bitterness. Aftertaste is bourbon flavour. Really smooth, silky. Nice beer.

Draft at Dulles. Pours deep amber with a quickly fading head. Aromas were bready and alcoholic. Similar flavors that were really bourbon and wood but not much else. Just didn’t please me like I expected

Very enjoyable beer. The bourbon barrel never really came through for me but it did have a nice vanilla undertone. Even though the bourbon didn't come out, it's still a solid ale.
