Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a reddish-amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is very nice. I get notes of alcohol, maple, oak, rye and vanilla. The maple seems to be the most dominant aroma. The flavor is maple, vanilla, bourbon, rye and oak. The bourbon and maple really come through in the flavor, but the beer is still very easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very good.

Bottle share thanks Skyview. Pour was caramel in color and was hazy. Aroma boozy dried fruit with roasted malt. Taste bourbon sweetness and caramel. Palate slick and sticky with a dry finish.

DalzAle (1984) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Sample thanks to Skyview. Hazy dark brown pour, no carbonation and a funky subtle apple and booze aroma. Flavor is plenty of bourbon, herbs and finished syrupy and boozy. Very good beer, but just not too much complexity to make it really interesting.

Dog Days of Summer Gathering, thanks growler. copper,t an. aroma, woot woot, bourbon goodness, loads of caramel, malty, rye and butterscotch/vanilla and oak wood. flavors, caramel malts, barrel is definitely more present here than anticipated in the nose, rye is mild adding just enough thickness to the palate and mild spices. A nice beer, good use of the Buffalo Trace that at times seems to overtake most of the other elements of this beer.

Huge thanks to daknole! Bottle pours murky amber brown with a khaki head. Sweet bourbon soaked caramel, rye bread, vanilla, raisins, oak, and brown sugar all rounded out with some earthy hops. Overall body is moderate to full, moderately sweet and finishes lightly bitter. I think i’m in love....
