Bomber courtesy of CraftBeerDesign (thanks Geoff!) poured a clear reddish amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of toffee, tobacco, rye, light bourbon and light oak. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of oak, toffee, rye, light fruittiness and light bourbon with a smooth lingering oak finish. Flat out kicks the Swiss versions ass!

BeerandBlues2 (10073) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Tap at Max’s Taphouse. Pours lightly hazy amber with a large, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is dates, cookie and caramel malt with vanilla and oak notes, bourbon and spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with medium bourbon and oak, vanilla and dates with light hops and bitterness and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

hopscotch (9549) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Draft... Clear ruby ale. The bouquet offers orange zest, candy sugar, dried dark fruits and fruitcake. I’m also picking up some rye spiciness. Full-bodied and oily with busy carbonation. The flavor is very sweet and borders on cloying - cotton candy and Karo brown syrup stand out. Finishes sticky and sweet.

22oz bottle. Poured a deep orange / amber color with an off white head. Aromas of toffee, some oaky/woodiness, caramel, grains and a trace of bourbon. Tastes of caramel, vanilla, brown sugary, dark fruits, bourbon, and some wood.

Sammy (8939) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
Very boozy, this characteristic dominates the taste.The bourbon is not as flavourful a choice as could have been made. Some rye edge, more just big malting. generous retained head on an Amber coloured body. Doug’s bottle.So-so drinkability.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. The beer pours a slightly murky reddish-brown color with a medium off-white head and a top ring of lacing. Aroma of oaky bourbon and malt. Full-bodied and smooth with flavors of dark malt, bourbon and fruit. The finish is oaky with a caramel malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

crossovert (7909) - Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Not as tasty or intruiging as the other version. Caramel, woodiness, and slight, slight bourbon are in this one but it isn’t coherent.
