ChainGangGuy (4489) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Appearance: Dispensed a hazed, darkish copper-amber body with a thin, very short-lived head. Smell: An emphatically sweet-smelling nose, with all these candyish notes of caramel, treacle, cooked raisins and Honey Crisp cereal seizing control of the aroma, leaving little room for the bourbon. Still, some tenuous hints of bourbon and vanilla are present. Taste: First and foremost, it’s sugary, with an unabating sweetness. It’s a pot stirred up with clover honey, light caramel sauce, and simple syrup. Secondary to the incessant sweetness are the bourbon hints of vanilla and toasty, tannic oak wood. Fruity touch of macerated golden raisins. Hop flavor and bitterness seems to have since exited the brew. Heated alcohol cuts through prior to the slow, sweet finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-low carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel. Drinkability: The heavy sweetness is a hurdle for me, slowing my progress to a safe crawl and impeding on the overall drinkability. It has a fairly subtle bourbon barrel character, though, overall, a pleasing taste suited to smaller, potentially fireside samples.

I believe this was the 06. Tap at Small Bar Fullteron. Pours hazy amber with minimal head. Aroma of wood, vanilla, sweet malt, caramel. Good mix of the bourbon flavor, I thought it was well done.

Stone old guardian aged in bourbon barrels. Tap at smallbar Fullerton for Stone takes over the taps.... Pours a mostly opaque reddish caramel brown with a thin soapy white head... Aroma of sticky dark fruits and caramel maltiness with a smaller subtle bourbon feel and more of a vanilla presence on the backend. bourbon is subtely felt. Flavors followed suit to a tee with a predominance of sticky dark fruit, toffee, and vanilla. Just a hint of bourbon with a semi-bitter finish. A little spicy heat on the backend. Pretty subdued barrel presence. Nice but. Body has held up nicely overall. 8/4/7/4/15
