Pour from a 12oz bottle. Nose is sweet malt and bourbon. Hazy dark amber pour with a slight tan head. Big vanilla and caramel notes, some bourbon here too. A nice sipper!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Old Fashioned. Unfiltered amber-red body. Steady off-white head. The aroma is nice and subtle. Caramel, vanilla, fruity amber malt. A pretty decent beer, really lets the oak chips shine. Rich bourbon, vanilla tinged. Burnt caramel. Well executed, very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle: pours a slightly hazy deep copper amber with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet toasty dark malty nose with some lightly buttered oak and vanilla bourbon. Starts with pretty good fullness and toasted malty sweetness with a healthy dose of bourbon flavor and butterscotch before a slightly drier bittersweet finish. Has pretty good complexity, but the bourbon flavor doesn’t mesh as well with an amber as it would an imperial stout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber with a large tan head. Aroma of bourbon, malt and strange fruit. Taste of sugar, caramel, bourbon and light oak. Thin and not so-so at best.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Easily up there in the WOW territory and so far the best beer I’ve sampled in 2012. The taste has many mildly sweet layers and the aroma is a vanilla-influenced delight. What MKE Brewing Co. really got right is they started with a medium-body ale rather than a porter or stout. The resulting brew is not the typically super-heavy beverage that can usually be drank in only in small amounts. It is instead very drinkable -- at least until the higher alcohol level slows you down.

Bottle courtesy of nuplastikk, thank you! Murky brown color, small bright tan head. Aroma of vanilla, lightly toasted caramel. Taste is bourbon above all else, masking the beer a bit. But otherwise smooth, fruity, boozy..
