Geez, what a disappointment. Served at a good temperature with a thick, creamy, off-white head and loads of lace sheets. Color is a hazy/cloudy brown amber. Aroma (my snooter don’t work so well) is shave cream! Flavor’s a bit like nose, whiskey comes thru (clashes), odd bittersweetness slight tang, Body’s ok, but carbonation soft. Finish is like flavor, too long, and has off flavors. No aesthetic pleasure to this at all and gets a better score cause it’s OB.

Draft. Copper with amber tints and a 2 finger white head. Aroma is piney and citrusy hops. Taste follows suit but adds just the faintest hint of oak at the end. Full creamy mouthfeel. Not bad but the barrel doesn't add much to this.

Bacterial (1918) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Slight bourbon nose. Slightly hazy dark amber. Bourbon is pretty subtle, a touch woody and a little bitter in the finish.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a moderate brown color with a light brown head. The nose is strange but pleasant with notes of pine and citrus rind in addition to some pretty strong whisky notes. The taste is slight whisky and oak, and the hop notes don’t fit in there quite as well as they did in the nose. Slightly bit with some alcohol. Nice there. Drinkability goes back down, as this is just a bit strange and I’m not sure I really like it all that much. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-02-2010

Butters (3928) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2011
On draft at brewvival 1.0 This thing had a ton of vanilla and whisky on it. The have fallen off considerably, but are still present. Pretty tasty actually.

nimbleprop (5469) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Sampled at Churckey. Pours a translucent, purpley amber with one ring of white head. Nose is a good blend, a little medicinal, vanilla, oak, brown sugar, C-hops, soap. Flavor is sweet, caramel, brown sugar, soap, harsh whiskey without any alcohol burn, a little cherry. Almost like cherry cough syrup. Finish is medium bodied and a touch soapy.

Draft. Medium beige head atop cloudy copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, some whiskey, light vinous, toffee. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, grape, some whiskey, light vinous. Sticky medium-full body, low carbonation. Lost too much of the lovely underlying beer.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2010
I hate BA IIPAs and BA IPA’s because most of the time the barrel takes away from the hops. This beer is one of the few examples opposite of my theory. Vanilla, bourbon, pine and grapefruit. Solid

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2010
draft at Brewvival. pours a murky, reddish brown with a thin, khaki head a tight ring of lace. aroma is excellent with big citrus hops, bold whiskey notes, and a touch of pine with notes of sweet vanilla, oak, candy sugar, and caramel malts. flavor was wonderful as well with huge citrus hop notes of orange and white grapefruit, grass, and spicy herbal notes with big vanilla and whiskey barrel notes leading to a boozy, but smooth bitter finish. palate is on the heavy side of medium bodied with light carbonation. overall, a damn nice rendtion of a barrel aged dipa.

Zymurgeist2 (1197) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
On draft at pi bar during SF beer week. Nice mohagony color with some haze and a thin white head. Great aroma of raisin, prune, light bourbon and sweet malt. Full mouthfeel that is slightly cloying - not surprising from the massive sugars. Taste blends the hops and malts well. Hints of vanills and esters, with dried fruit rounding out the palate. The whiskey really shines on a great finish.
