Bule (1114) - California, USA - APR 16, 2015
On tap at Taps. Pours a reddy brown color with a bit of head. Sharp aroma of spirits. Sharp on the barrel and spirity flavor too. Hath alcohol. Struggling to drink this.

zach8270 (3794) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 1, 2015
(draft @ Avenue Pub - New Orleans, LA) Cloudy orange with a thick white head. Mild bourbon in the aroma. Predominantly Belgian yeast and some light spice and hops. Flavor is very solid though. Lots of good pale ale and spicy yeast notes with a definite underpinning of the barrel.

arminjewell (8471) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap at Northern Lights Rare Beer Fest, hazy orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of oak, lemon, some biscuit into a bit of vanilla, hints of orange peel into a bit of spice. Taste was a mix of orange, lemon into some oak, vanilla, touch of chemical into a bit of biscuit, finishing slightly bitter. Ok.

GnarlyGnome (756) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Very nice...but I feel like itís a battle between bourbon barrels and hops. Not that thatís a bad thing... Iíll take a front seat, but thereís a lot going on.

BOLTZ7555 (2939) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2015
On tap @ Public House Temecula. Burnt orange pour with a small ivory crown. Lots of complexity that included oak, vanilla, and a hint of bourbon accompanied by candied citrus, pith, and rind. Pretty solid!

vtafro (4490) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Draft. Orange pour with tan head. Fruit, tart tones, Belgian yeast aromas. Tart fruit, light Belgian flavors, perhaps some spice and oak. Enjoyed more than expected.

Tmoney99 (11684) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Draft. Poured hazy orange copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Complex spice, yeast and bourbon aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark bourbon sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration with a small alcohol bite. This is a solid beer.
