Draft at hunahpu day 2014. Pours a cloudy brown with muddy red highlights. Barely any head. Smell is boozey with the expected bourbon/whiskey and vanilla tones. Taste is initially bourbon with some hints of toffee and caramel. Vanilla comes through mid palate. Mouthfeel is a little sweet, as I would expect. Likely amplified due to minimal carbonation in this pour. Overall I like it better than regular old chub, not as smokey.

Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #95. Draft at Brewvival. This beer’s 100th rating! Pours a murky brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Aroma of big bourbon notes, strong herbaceous notes, mild toffee and raisin. The taste is bourbon, vanilla, maple, toffee, whiskey, earth, mild candied citrus. Medium bodied, slight heat.

Keg at RBWG 2014 grand tasting, thanks! Pours a clear deep amber with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of earthy grain and biscuit with a bit of barrel backing. Flavor has more bourbon up front with some dark earthy grains and a bit of biscuit.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2013
16oz growler from Beverage World. Served at around 50F.

Pours dark brown with a small light brown head that quickly fades to a wispy cap and ring.

Aroma is big bourbon, vanilla and oak up front and I guess a little Old Chub underneath. Anise, molasses, overripe dark fruit, some charred notes.

Flavor is bourbon, serious overripe dark fruit, pretty sweet, vanilla, caramel, anise, smoky, oaky, yummy.

Mouthfeel starts a little prickly but then softens up, somewhat sticky, moderate carbonation.

Big time bourbon, overshadows the Old Chub a bit, but that’s okay...this stuff is good, rich and delicious.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Tap at Eastburn, PDX, 25/05/13. Dark mahogony brown with a good sized light tan head. Nose is dark malt, wood, dark toffee, soft bourbon notes. Taste comprises toffee fudge, caramelised sugars, subtle bourbon notes, woody tones. Medium bodied with bite, soft carbonation, light boozey notes in a sweetish finish. Decent enough, barrel ageing is definately the way to go with Scotch ales !

16 oz. aluminum can given to me by stevemastny at DLD 2013- thanks a ton, Steve! Unlabeled except for a small white sticker that read: Oskar Blues Wild Turkey Barrel Old Chub. Pours a hazy nut brown color with a small beige head. Whiskey barrels are undeniably present on top of brown sugar, nuts, vanilla, toast, and an oaky/peaty note. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. Very good.

Dark brown with a small tan head. Bourbon and pepper aroma. Slightly spiced/peppered bourbon...wood flavour. Very soft and smooth with a nice burn at the finish. Good Stuff.
