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.

Pours clear amber color with a small, thin, bone-colored head that was gone quickly. Aroma of caramel or toffee, with notes of butter and vanilla oak. Medium body, very slightly watery, with a light boozy astringency to the finish. Flavors of toffee and butter, with notes of bourbon and wood.

Tap at bjs Polaris. I feel like I've been bill cosby'ed. My mouth was just raped. Acrid and bourbon taste is a recipe for awful. I wish the creator of this gets an ostomy and goes to prison and his cell mates rape it. Not really but you get the hint that this is awful.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is roasty malts, caramel, bourbon and cask woods. Taste is light and not overly complex malt depth, some honey, cream and definite sweet bourbon that is pretty well balanced. Not much hop presence here, very light tanin on tip. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle into tulip. Hayward, WI.
Pours amber in color. Mostly clear. Small white head.
Aroma: Bourbon notes dominate and caramel malt.
Taste: Mostly sweet. A little bitter notes.
Body is medium with a shorter finish.
Decent to try, but not really wowed. Bourbon is present, but its kind of a weird fit with the style. Not a favorite.
