23rd June 2010
Cloudy brown beer. No real head. Minerally nose with sherry and coca cola notes. Softish palate, a tad dry. Sweet coconut and malt. Subtle cherry in the undertone. Moderate and smooth bourbon with a little unsweet wood. Smooth finish with mild bitterness in the aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94, thanks! I think itís really stupid that brewers are forced to add the unnecessary words "style ale" onto the label. But I digress. Plenty of whiskey in this one, in the aroma and the taste, bu too much for my taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: This is not a particularly attractive beer with a hazy mahogany color with very light carbonation and a small tan head.
S: The nose offers plenty of nice sweet caramel with the oak and bourbon providing a nice vanilla aroma. There are some nondescript dark fruits as well.
T: Like the aromas, this one is full of caramel and vanilla deliciousness. Thereís a nice toffee and molasses flavor as well, along with the nice bourbon and oak and raisins.
M: The beer is a bit warm, but the low carbonation and fairly full body provide for a pleasant experience.
D: I wasnít the hugest fan of the regular Dipsea, but I found that the barrel aging added quite a bit to it. Iím glad Iíve been able to try this one a couple times now.
