UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 Damn fine brew. Hint of bourbon and oak. Slight vanilla. Love bourbon barrel strong ales so this is right up my alley. Very impressed with the Straight to Ale brews.

Tap growler in plastic from the wagon wheel - pours cola with a thin white head. Aroma is bourbon and cola. Taste is sweet with mild booziness. Palate is sticky with a touch of alcohol burn as it warms. Overall, solid brew.

Draft from Wagon Wheel Liquors. Pours brown with almost no head. Fairly big bourbon notes on the nose. Pretty boozy on the tongue with a lot of whiskey as well. Finish lingers a bit.

Strong oak aroma with bourbon flavor. Sweet with strong bourbon flavor... actually is this an old ale? Just call a bourbon barrel mild. Taste like the great bourbon barrel stouts out there.. just not the color but every other part. Other state this is sweet... not this go round. Sweet bourbon perfection.... unobtanium... I can believe that name. If this is consistent to be like this... its amazing! btw thin head... poured at brewery

Draft at Leroy's. Pours brown with thin off white head. Aroma of molasses, brown sugar, and caramel malt. Taste of vanilla and caramel. Do not pick up much bourbon or oak. Has nice alcohol burn in the finish. Decent Old ale.

Sampled at DLD 11 from??? Pours an amber brown color with a small off white head. The nose was sweeter caramel malts, bourbon, vanilla, oak and some earthy hops. The flavor was caramel malts, bourbon vanilla with some mild earthy bitterness to the finish. I had this early in the day, but would like to try this again in a different setting.
