Strong bourbon aroma. Flavors of brown sugar, cider, bourbon, plums and a nice alcohol bite. Very malty but good carbonation helps cut through it.

Bacterial (1585) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Sample pour at the Great Taste of the Midwest. Full pour towards the end of the day. Big bourbon and malty nose. Brown pour with just a slight head. Big boozy taste. Nice, but kind of a 1 trick pony.

Tap...dark brown pour with bourbon nose and flavor over sweet dark fruit. Lots of complex flavors swirling about here and very much like a Dubbel.

SpongeRuiner (738) - Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2014
On tap at the Shorts Anniversary. A lot of hoppy flavors. Some fruits in the background with some bourbon that really made it a boozy drink. Overall pretty good.

tectactoe (1940) - Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Tap @ Shorts: Swampy brown, beige head that settles fast. Bourbon, caramel, apples, toffee, wood, & some faint syrupy vanilla on the nose. Taste reminds me of a boozy caramel apple. Lightly sweet fruits with bourbon, toffee, & sweet residual sugars. Vanilla & woody finish with a lingering sweetness & a touch of booze. Pretty nice barrel aged old ale.

Pailhead (4842) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of caramel, toffee, light chocolate, and a touch of maple syrup. It’s a cloudy orangish-brown with a small tan head. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy caramel, toffee, and light vanilla. The finish has moderate maple syrup, coconut, light vanilla, and oak. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. This was probably my second favorite of the anniversary party.
