You could smell the Barrel and Bourbon a bit once poured. For me, it had a flavor of vanilla. This would have been better had it let it aged a bit and mellowed out. I felt that the bourbon had a bit of a strong aroma and flavor which I love, but it wasn’t balanced with the Ale. If you’re able to find one, I’d say cellar it and try it in a year or two....I bet it’ll be fantastic!

Bottle courtesy of my friend Noel. Amber pour with a short tan head. Aroma is strong vanilla, caramel, bourbon notes and sweet malt. Taste is big vanilla, caramel, toasted coconut, sweet malt and booze. Body is medium with a soft bubbly carbonation. Lots of stickiness and boozy warmth. Finishes with more vanilla, caramel, booze, light coconut and toasted dark bread.

thegreenrooster (3304) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Pour is a tan with a large tan head. Aroma is of the barrel with some notes of vanilla and bourbon. Flavor is bourbon, a big dose of caramel malt and some whiskey burn of alcohol. Finish leaves some of that burning on the tongue with some almost spicy rye and a warming in the chest. This is all about this bourbon barrel it was aged in. Very solidly done as the bourbon is there but you still get a nice sweet and heavy malt.

Very small, lacy head. The malt allows for the most delicious caramel aroma. Definitely heavily boozy at times, but ultimately a smooth, slightly sweet, easy to drink American ale. Very good.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Amber colored pour with an off-white head. Vanilla and oak up front with a nice dark fruit sweetness. Mild charred oak note, caramel, raisin, and very faint candied citrus. The flavor has a lot of barrel notes, particularly charred oak, bourbon, and vanilla. Good caramel and dark fruit sweetness, too, but a bit on the watery side.

22oz bottle. Rating #14. Dark reddish/brown pour with a small off white head. Sweet and a little toasty, picking up a decent amount of vanilla and bourbon. Similar taste with a more pronounced hop character, more vanilla and a little heat. (2703)
