3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2103 release on draught at the brewpub. Pours a dense brown color with a fading tan head. Big body and bold aromas. Big bourbon flavor matched to a brown sugerl-ike sweetness and an oak character. Solid hop bitterness paired to a slightly sweet maltiness. Overall, it works well. Probably improve with age. Very nice!

bottle, from Jubilation Wine and Spirits. Good aroma, sweet. Bourbon, vanilla/oak, caramel. Clean Brownihs orange color, good head and lace. Sweet flavor. full body, creamy oily mouthfeel, long sweet finish. Pretty darn nice, Aroma is best part, IMO. sweet bareel goodness. Flavor just slightly less interesting, still good though. Marble is a darn fine brewery...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Red with an off-white head. The aroma has a lot of barrel-aged notes, with some oak, bourbon and roasted malt. The flavor is not as good as the aroma. I get some cherry and molasses notes, as well as some sherry character and some alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours light brown with off white head. Aroma of sweet vanilla and bourbon. Tastes of vanilla followed by a slight bourbon burn. I think this would be a great beer to let sit and revisit.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bottle. Deep brown with a frothy beige head. Nose is caramel, Southern Comfort, wood, vanilla and dates. Lovely layered sweetness. Medium body with a soft buzz not quite sticky or syrupy. Taste is caramel, bourbon, vanilla, fig and raisin with a touch of butter. A bit like Lees Harvest Ale; right up my alley.

Pours dark brownish read with a ring of white foam. Aroma of brown sugar, molasses, figs, black cherry, and bourbon goodness. Taste is much like a barleywine. Dark fruits, vanilla, molasses, oaky vanilla, and bourbon make up the taste profile. A well done bourbon barrel ale.

(22oz bomber) clear deep amber, wispy white bubbles. Nose of light oxidation, pulpy paper, rich caramel, smelled pretty good until it got warm. Taste of bourbon barrel, vanilla, light alcohol, caramel. Not very complex, but nice.
