tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Draft at Stone. Side by side with 08.08.08. Poured a deeper color, amberish, cloudy, slight whisp of head. Similar to standard version with some citrus, funky yeast but with vanilla, oak, some bourbon. Much smoother drink.

JohnnyJ (4992) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Draft at Stone Bistro. Clear medium gold pour, with a short white head. Bourbon, oak, fruit sweetness, caramel, tangerine, and apple. Enjoyable and different than the usual dark beer in bourbon barrel. It works pretty well.

Pouring at session one of Belgian Beer Fest in Boston. Pours a just clear orange gold with a thin white head. Sweet bourbon on the nose. Toast, bourbon sweetness and a lightly herbal spiciness. Bourbon and wood on the end with a lingering woody tang.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Orange pour, Aroma is zesty, belgian yeast, some subdued hops, light oak, some orange peel. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy, flavor continues with a nice belgian ipa style that ends a bit dry, oaky. Interesting, but I can say that I think I would rather have this fresh than barreled.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Tap at Stone 14th. Golden color with some white head. Yeasty bready nose with some fruitiness. Flavors of the original brew but with the bourbon wood quality lightly in the background. Not a desirable combo with a golden hoppy belgian style ale in my book. Preferred the fresh 8-8-08
