A: The pour is a dark amber color with about a finger’s worth of khaki colored head. S: Lots of barrel influence is detectable right off the bat. Vanilla, oak, and bourbon really dominate that aromas. I get some rye as well as a subtle fruitiness behind all the barrel. T: More bourbon and vanilla to the flavor with a mild warmth to the beer. A lot of rye and what seems to be candied orange peels along with caramel and brown sugar. M: Medium in body with a surprisingly lively carbonation, but I appreciate it. D: This beer was good, but it’s completely overwhelmed by the barrel/bourbon. I was left to wonder what the original beer really tasted like.

hopscotch (9152) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Bottle… Clear, dark ruby ale with a small, fizzy, lightly tanned head. Decent retention. The aroma furnishes a boatload of caramelized brown sugar alongside lesser notes of bourbon, oak, rye whiskey and spicy grains. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The sweet flavor offers caramel and rye whiskey tempered by modest bitterness. Rich, buttery toffee finish. Thanks to growler for sharing this whiskey-loaded, malty beer!

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2010
Deep amber pour and a thin white head. The nose is peppery and a bit sharp. A bit of unusual woody character. The palate has a whole lot of rye character. A touch of peppery flavour and a spicy sweetness. Lingering chewy palate and a long earthy/spicy finish. Decent but it doesn’t really come together like it could.

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.
