2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask at the Milwaukee Alehouse. Pours a clear reddish amber with a light brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma atoms has a bit of bourbon with sweet grains and a hint of earthy bread. Flavor starts sweet with grains, bread and caramel with a strong over whelming bourbon finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2015 On cask. It is a super-fruity beer with tons of dried fruits like raisins. The bourbon is not over the top and provides a layer of complexity.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2016 Not sure about this beer. It just does seem to work for me. Didn’t mix well. Too sweet maybe but also could be watery. Serving: Cask

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Medium amber color with a creamy almost grey head. Aroma of caramel, Makers and oak. Nutty beginning and oak is apparent once again. Finish is very heavy on the bourbon and a bit hot. Not the best beer I have enjoyed at the Ale House.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Near copper color with a creamy off-tan head. A somewhat typical hand pulled brew. Caramel and bourbon cask wood aromas. Touches of toasted and roasted malt. Seems a touch thin in nose. Somewhat lifeless, but than again that can be the case with many a hand pulls. Amber flavors with a touch of bourbon and nuts. Finishes quite hot and thin. Lacks depth, but if you like bourbon this could be you brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask at Milwaukee Ale House. Poured a cloudy deeper iced tea brown with a medium cap of creamy off-white head. Nose was of an average amber ale (lightly toasted caramel, some unidentifiable fruits, and herbal notes) paired with oak and weak bourbon notes. Flavor was of grainy toasted caramel malts, woodsy hops, and faint bourbon again. Grainy and almost empty on the palate with less-than-ideal carbonation (even for the cask treatment). This really didn’t taste or feel so good to me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap, hand pull. Hazy borwn-amber body, thick creamy sparkler head. Toasty amber mal aroma with ligh fruity overtones (raspberry/cherry). The flavor brings in stronger cherry/raspberry/apple fruit an doaky dryness over toasty pale malt. The finish clearly exhibits the fruity bourbon flavors. If you like the oaky/bourbon stuff then you’d like this beer - I didn’t.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours a mahogony w/ a small light tan head w/ nice lacing. Smells of sweet carmel malt and suar w/ a hint of citrus hop. Palate is well coated and creamy but lacking a full body. Flavor is mild but nice, a light malt and subdued citrus hop w/ hints of oak. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
They currently have this on pull. The beer pours to a hazy mahogany with a thin white head and AWESOME lacing. The flavor is smooth. Iced tea and oak. The aroma is caramel and oak with light roasted malts. Similar to regular Louie’s. The palate is smooth and slick. I think it’s 6% plus. Not 4.8%.
