2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared by Tooch4321...thanks Adam! - Pours brown with a reddish tint and a thin ring of white head. Aroma is pretty sharp--alcohol is pretty hot and sweet, with--well--not much else. Taste is sweet bourbon, rich malt with a spicy pumpkiny twinge. But damn...itís sweet and big and hot. Not my thing. Syrupy with little carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml via trade. Dark mahogany with a thick, beige head. Aroma of bourbon, yams, cinnamon and maple. Flavor is dark dried fruit, bourbon/alcohol, sweet maple and some light pie spice. Medium to full body with a long boozy finish. This one is really good, all the components are represented and come together really good.

Pours dark thick pumpkin amber with a smaller beige head. Aroma brings big earthy yams with a subtle spicy sweetness. Flavor brings the earthy yams with a unique off sweetness and some malty amber endings. There is spice from the rye casks as well, especially lingering on the palate.

30 nov 3012, bottle. Dark amber and faintly cloudy. Nose is really sweet maple, faint bacon (?), faintest of tartness. Thin body but syrupy at the end, faintly fizzy. Sugary cereal malt, maple syrup, raisins, sugary alcohol. Wow.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours murky opaque brown with a small tan head that dissipates fairly quickly and leaves some lacing. Aroma is bourbon and very malty - toffee, molasses, dried fruits. Flavor is much the same, really seems like a different beer than the original with the tannic yamminess fading into the background to be replaced with a bourbon maltiness. A bit of spices still show through to provide some complexity. Medium sweet, some woodiness but no real astringence. Full body, creamy. Quite tasty.

sample from the bottle at Dr. Billís Tasting at Falling Rock during GABF on 9/26/09... pours a deep red with an off white head... bourbon nose with some spice... very smooth body throughout... extremely well balanced... the barrel aging really shines through from front to back.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small sample pour to a shaker at the Windy City Distributing annual expo. The color was a hazed, brown/amber, with modest, off white head foam that reduced quickly to a ring and film, and left light spots of lacing at best. The aroma was maple sweetness, spices, and bourbony alcohol. The flavor was a little sherry-like, bourbony alcohol warmth, full bodied, syrupy texture, with modest carbonation. A very enjoyable sipper!
