From tap. Deep ruby pour. Great scent of bourbon, caramel, and malt. Flavor is spectacular and sweet, without being overly so.

Bottled. Medium brown pour. Fast fading light tan head. Fair lacing on the snifter. Aroma is caramel malt, pineapple, bourbon, vanilla. Flavor is rich caramel malt, bourbon, vanilla, oak, pineapple. Little to no hop flavor but the hops balance the sweetness quite well. Mouthfeel is viscous, thick, coating. Enough carbonation to keep it from being cloying. One of my all-time favorite ales. The bourbon barreled version is amazing. Not to be missed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy from my iPad.

Great barrel flavor! Awesomely balanced, makes it simple to separate the barrel flavors from the wheatwine. Super drinkable for 12%, and a nice treat

This was a suprise draft at a beerfest a while back. From notes. Bourbon dominates with caramel and fermented fruits right behind it. A little woody and vanilla in there too. Very solid beer.

Poured into a 16 oz. taster glass at about room temperature. Aroma- Strong bourbon, oak, fruit, caramel, nut. Appearance- Reddish brown with a little head and lacing at the top of glass. Taste- Bourbon, dark fruit, caramel, vanilla. Palate- Charred wood, bourbon, spice, plum/grape, subtle sweetness, with a dry finish. Overall the beer is complex yet it was well balance. I thought it would be very boozy in taste with that strong bourbon aroma but the ingredients in the ale comes together quite well.

Wow, picked this up on a whim, have not been following beer much lately. Just incredible. My brother’s wife just tweeted that Jeff was enjoying a Bourbon County Stout, my favorite. Had no idea that I had something in that neighborhood in the garage. My favorite beers always remind me of some scrumptious food. This one reminds me of a heavy, sticky, gooey pastry with caramelized dark sugars and malt, darkest blackberry, date and vanilla, drizzled in caramel, soaked in bourbon. Oh my.

NikkTwist (1519) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Draft at Khyber Pass. Snifter. Dark copper brown pour with slight tan foam that disappears. Notable Bourbon notes off the top. Nice mix of barrel-aged dark red fruits. Boozy chocolate covered raisins. Toffee. Red plum pits. Salted caramels. Butterscotch. Sweet burnt oranges. Root beer. Heady vanilla bourbon. Pretty tasty.

Clear dark amber pour with a little white head. Big caramel and toffee notes in the nose. Excellent mouthfeel, just enough heat to let you know you should be sipping this and a nice amount of barrel character that go well with this slightly sweet brew. Caramel and dried dark fruit.

Bottle. Deep red/brown pour with off white head. Smells of bourbon, toffee and slight oak. Tastes of the same with dark fruits and alcohol. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
