Pour is brown with a thin tan head...lightly oaky and smokey sweet nose...flavor is lightly sweet and smokey, but seemed almost like it didn’t taste like anything...

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Black pour, moderate to small head, average lacing and retention. Aroma doesn’t offer much, light amounts of darker malts and fruits with bourbon. No real smokey character. Flavor brings much more bourbon and soft vanilla. Very low bitterness, medium to light body. Sweet finish with light acidity. Enjoyable but not that true to the style.

brew4all (103) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Aroma was strong with Bourbon and dark fruits. Poured a dark cloudy copper with a thin head. The flavor was smooth with hints of Oak and fruit. Finished with a very nice hint of the whiskey barrels and some dryness as well. Very solid brew

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Draft @ HDG. Rich red and copper color with a thick head. Aroma is bourbon up front with some peat and smoked malts backing it up. Flavor is close to that with the alcohol masked behind all of those big flavors. A bit on the sticky side but overall a nice take on the style.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2007
UPDATED: APR 30, 2007 Smell of bourbon, light malt, caramel, cream cheese frosting and some nuts. Taste of caramel, light bourbon, toffee, frosting, sugar and a touch of oak. I was expecting a lot more bourbon flavor but it was still good.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2007
1L bottle sampled on 7/2/06: Pours a deep copper orange with a thin ring of off-white head. Aroma of sweet peaty caramel malt and nice oaky bourbon complexity. Starts with a somewhat lively body with good caramel maltiness quickly turning into an oakier, mildly bourbon, dry well-balanced finish. An enjoyable, complex, and drinkable brew.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Mild aroma, some spice, vanilla and bourbon. Flavor is HUGE on the bourbon, vanilla, spices, toffee. But most flavors were masked by the bourbon. Good, but a little overpowering.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Malt slurry,carmel,smoke or wood, and hints of bourbon and port wine. The bourbon became more distinct as it warmed. The flavor was was your standard scottish carmel toffee, little or no hop all with the hints of bourbon,which became more distinct as it warmed, tastey,pleasant,but not the big ass concoction you would expect from a bottle so grandly packaged and named

Ok Scotch Ale. Peat, earthy, and caramel flavors. Finishes sticky and chewy.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2007
4 oz sample at HDG. This was kind of dissappointing. Kind of muddled together and messy with nothing really going on- at least nothing that was pleasant. The bourbon takes over in the aroma and mouthfeel, but it is just plain hot and alcoholic, despite the original beer being 9.5%. I thought it would be thicker. Fruity, estery, medicinal, light harsh smoke, cheap burning bourbon, woody, oaky, dry as hell and has a bad weak finish. I struggled to finish the 4 oz.
