2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
1 L Bottle from tytoanderso; Nose of smoke, tobacco, roastiness, and chocolate; opaque black with a medium cinnamon tan head; flavor has bourbon, light sourness, with some chocolate and oak. I don’t think it is a brett beer so it must be lightly infected, doen’t taste that good.

Bottle shared by Jason. Black body under a foamy tan head. Roast, caramel and bourbon in the nose. The flavor centers around strong roast malt, green wood and green alcohols. Sour milk sweetness & vanilla backs this up. Pretty crappy stuff.

Very thick and viscous with almost no carbonation. The bourbon was quite noticeable to me. It was huge but unappealing. I wasn’t begging for another sip. In fact, the bottle was never finished. Overall: disappointing.

Very dark brown/black, head fades to a ring, color of motor oil. Aromas of Rich, Roasty, molasses, sweet malts, alcohol, bourbon sweetness.
Taste is big and so is the body- loadedith malts, a grape sweetness, slightly metallic in the finish though, bourbon flavor/ oak from the barrel, and sweet coffee flavor, with no bitterness.

Picked up at the Sprecher outlet. A miss for this brewery. Strong wood and bourbon aroma, but they were somehow off. Some root beer and cola in the aroma and flavor and stale smoke. However very smooth. Serving: Bottle

Bottle handed to me by Dmac, thanks Dave (Gary), who then said this is horrible. Well here we go, obvious black body with a tan head. A horrible balance of soy maple bourbon and some woodiness. Vanilla vegetative and astringent. Yes Dave, it does suck.

Black pour with very thin tan head. Smells generic and booze like. Reminds me of an off RC Cola. Flavor is strangely sweet, soy, and vinegar like. Seems to be unintentionally tart. Finish is unenjoyable. Not impressed at all.

Bottle thanks to dmac I think for sharing? Actually no thanks. This beer is pretty terrible. Bomber. Pours a deep dark cola color with a thin fizzy diminishing head to almsot nothing. Aroma is a bit boozy- with somecaramelized fruits, bourbon, and intense vanilla oak. Flavor had a bit of vegetal dms, with more over the top bourbon totally masking all malts and roastiness, with much more vanilla and oakiness to make sure everythign is over the top. Mouthfeel ended up thin, tannic and astringent. meh.
