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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A clearish light brown beer, ugly. A light tan head ok retention, but watery lacing...The aroma is tons of bourbon, with rye and touch of spice. Too much bourbon for me, not balanced...The taste is more of the same, generic bourbon that most ok ba beers taste like, woodford reserve anyone? The bourbon dominates and I’m just not into it at all. Way to hot.
Not worth trying.

Hey now buttery bourbon! Tons of butter, bourbon, caramel, vanilla, and a spiciness.
Taste is slightly spicy, bourbon, butter, vanilla, and caramel.
Finish is sweet, cloying, and butter.

Not very good at all. A thick and gooey beer that came out with a gusher! I didn’t like the aroma and taste at first, so I gave this the benefit of the doubt and let it warm up a bit. Still no good. The aroma is of fresh leather. The flavor is sweet, dark and mysterious. Heavy body. This brew goes nowhere for me.
