2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is very fruity and sweet, dark red murky pour, thick bubbles, looks almost like an iced tea that was shaken up. Taste is hard to describe, never had anything like it, not sure if I like it. There is a very strong taste of the bourbon coming through, its strong, and sweet, not really my thing, it could be because this is old, maybe it just didn’t age well, I was really interested to try it, but at this point I would say leave it on the shelf. My biggest disappointment from Smutty to date, whose beers I usually love. Too sweet and fruity, hint of smoke flavor as well.

Pours a deep amber/orange with a medium off white head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits, rye and oak. Flavor was a mix of the same with the bourbon certainly there but not overpowering. Well done bourbon aged beer.

22oz capped, thanks Alex. Clear amber brown with eggshell white head. Malty, apple, caramel, fig newtons, lighty boozey and some phenols. Bready tart apples and raisins, white grapes, creamy smooth body with some tobacco notes on the end. Well made and enjoyable until it warms when the booze pops out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2012 The aroma of some sweet malts and bourbon vanilla, smooth. The beer pours amber with a beige head. It tastes like smooth bourbon from the barrels with a smooth bite on the tail end. The body is syrupy light with some alcohol fumes as well, but not overbearing.
