Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Draft. Cloudy/muddy ice tea color with frothy off white head. Aroma of wood, vanilla, and light citrus notes. The taste was the same with light caramel and whiskey notes in the finish. Massive lacing left in the glass.

TheEpeeist (3177) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2008
On tap at Capone’s. Cloudy brown with a thin whitish head. Leaves lacy strands. Aroma very subdued; piney hops and barrel smoothed whiskey. Taste more dominated by the whiskey but doesn’t seem bourbony. A little too sharp when combined with the orange hop bitterness. Still pretty good. Some caramel, honey and vanilla come out as it warms. Medium body, mild carb.

On tap. Poured a deeper and cloudy / muddy amberish color with an averaged sized frothy off white head. Aromas of whiskey, woody, pine, vanilla, and some caramel. Tastes of whiskey, wood/oak, vanilla, citrus, sugary, and caramel. I liked this one.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Cloudy brown appearance with faint head. Hops and oak on the aroma, but not overly bourbony. Similar taste with a smooth finish. The hops and bourbon oak in the flavor meshed perfectly.

mkobes (2138) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2007
On tap at OB. Hazy orange in color with a off white head that left a nice lacing on the glass. Oak vanilla and citrusy aroma. Caramel hoppy woody notes. Bourbon, oak citrusy flavor. Malty notes. Finish is bitter. Full bodied. Well balanced. Very nice beer. Very drinkable.

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2007
(Draught) Pours a hazy amber body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of oak, vanilla, citrus, and caramel. Flavor of bourbon, oak, citrusy hops, and lightly toasted malt.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
BeerandBlues2 (9081) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Draught at Oskar Blues. Pours hazy amber with a spare, fizzy, off-white head, diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (toasted grain, bread), average hops (flowers, herbs), average yeast (sweat) with notes of oak, whiskey, and vanilla. Full bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

MIBRomeo (2492) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Dark dark brown pour, thick tan head w/ some light lace. Well hopped aroma, lots of caramel, light grass, and a touch of vanilla. Full well coated lightly creamy palate. Not much dif than regular gordon, some light buttery flavors and more alcohol, I’d prefer the non BA.
