Lightly hazy orangish pour. Sweet oak/whiskey notes hit the nose followed by some great brown sugar, and citrus. Flavor is big time whiskey, sweet oak, syrupy notes. Quite a big beer and good!

Had this on tap at the 2010 Oregon Brewer’s Festival Buzz tent. Colour.... reddish-brown with no head. Nose... sweet with plenty of toffee, butterscotch and hints of Bourbon. Palate... gently frothy, with a milk toffee character, dates, golden raisins, candied pineapple and long delightful finish!

On draft at Stone 14th Anniversary. Golden pour with nice head. Aroma was brown sugar, burnt caramel, and some whiskey. Taste was mild bourbon and sweet sugars. Mild carbonation. Overall pretty good and not over the top with the bourbon.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 21, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2010 Sample at the Stone 14th. Rating# 3. Very clear copper pour with a dirty off-white head. Caramel malt was the dominating aroma. Flavor is quite nice, rich caramel, a little fruitiness, a bit of heat, but still very drinkable. (1359)

hombrepalo (1757) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Sampled @ FoBaB 2010. Appearance is a clear, copper color. Moderate, malty aroma. Sherry notes with sweet caramel and some dark fruits. Taste is a light caramel, malty sweetness that is very well balanced by a the bourbon flavors in the finish. Mildly warming and hides the 11% very well. light body. Soft carbonation. Very easy drinking...

On tap for Hard Liver ’12, pours a cloudy dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma of light bourbon, liqueur-covered fruits and toasted bread. Flavour of very pleasant wood / bourbon notes, vanilla, toffee and light hops. Light-bodied for a barley wine but very pleasant.
