COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
New Frontier Beer: Boone, travelling through Kentucky on his way to the frontier, needed a place to store his beer. He placed an imperial brown in discarded bourbon barrels. Months later he had an amazing beer that would cellar well. And so the legend was born. *Events presented here are not factual, but are based on actual events. In our dreams. After sampling the beer a few times. Cheers!

Tmoney99 (10102) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, nuts and wood aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good brew.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Clear, deep, dark copper ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is a mélange of bourbon, caramel, milk chocolate and vanilla. Full-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel. The flavor provides heavy bourbon and vanilla with touches of milk chocolate and caramel. Finishes boozy and mostly sweet. Now this is a brown ale! Kudos to landhoney for bringing this bottle back from Charlotte with him!

Drake (7950) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bomber from Bestway. Pours a clear bronze color with a thin creamy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of bourbon and some toffee notes buried in there behind the whiskey. The taste is bourbon, caramel, vanilla, raisin. Medium bodied. Way too heavy on the bourbon

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Sample at the Central OH BA Tasting at From The Vine on 06/02/2012: The beer pours a clear mahogany color with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of dark malt, bourbon and fruit. Medium body with a bourbon character and notes of sweet malt, brown sugar and a touch of dark fruit. The finish is slightly boozy with a malty aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Suttree (4908) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Brown, thin white head, but a bonus appearance point for the cool label. Smells like brown sugar, molasses, honey and bourbon. Very heavy, a also a bit boozy. Lots of brown sugar, molasses, and vanilla and a little bit of oak.

alexsdad06 (4553) - Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2013
22 oz. bottle from my NC friends. Pours a deep reddish amber color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malts, bourbon, ripe fruity notes with a very light woody note. The flavor is sweet caramel, bourbon, big fruity notes, vanilla and light wood character. A touch thin and definitely sweeter. Not too bad overall, but I couldn’t drink this by myself.

JaBier (4532) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear copper pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of caramel, bourbon and yeasty esters. Caramel and booze also in the flavor, but there’s an eerie tartness that speaks to infection. Hoping to try this one again and will re-rate if it’s better.
