dchmela (2834) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Tap at Gingerman. Deep copper pour. Huge barrel, bourbon and citrus hops aroma. Big sticky hop taste, big malt body, bourbon in the taste. Just a glorious mix of everything great about beer and bourbon.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark caramel-brown color with a medium sized creamy beige head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was sweet coconut, bourbon, vanilla, caramel and a bit of fruity hops. The flavor was bourbon, coconut, caramel, sweet fruits, a touch of bitterness and a bit of fruity hops. Long finish. Full body. Well done.

The_Osprey (3241) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Keg at Brewdog Shepherd’s Bush as G’Knight Brekenridge BA. Hazy red / orange, small foamy head. Aroma - strong bourbon whiskey reminds me of Wild Turkey and coke. Body is smooth, slightly foamy. Taste - liquorice allsorts, soft smoke, bourbon, less sweet than the base beer. Nice.

Marheb (3175) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Premier liquide à m’accueillir à mon arrivée à Londres. Le nez est absolument intraitable en vaniline et avec le background de malt rouge et de résine florale, je suis sans aucun doute devant une savoureuse bestiole. Les saveurs s’expriment comme prévu et j’oublie soudainement qu’il est 8h du matin.

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Sample at the Brevard tap room. Murky brownish-amber color with a medium foamy beige head that diminishes gradually to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bourbon, malt and caramel. Medium-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, caramel malt and vanilla. The finish is moderately boozy with a bourbon and malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
