3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Daily Growler. Pours a murky yellow-orange color with a thin white head that disappears quickly to a spotty outer ring. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, oak and fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of ripe fruit, oaky vanilla and herbal yeast. Any bourbon is minimal. The finish is woody with a ripe fruit and yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Draft at Eulogy. Very hazy amber with a frothy off-white head. Thick earthy honey sweet body with some vanilla bourbon notes lying subtly within. High ABV is well hidden. Very nicely balanced. No factor is overwhelming. Well done.

On tap at the source. Pours a translucent copper with w white ring of foam around the edge of the glass. Aroma is big wood, vanilla, and oak. Taste is sweet honey a wet wood. Mouthfeel is big and sticky. Overall, this is pretty nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a golden color with a small sized off white head. Fruity, bourbon, vanilla, wood, oak, candi sugar, and some lighter spiciness. Sweeter but not cloying. Alcohol content well hidden. My favorite of the 7 Thirsty Dob beers I had that night - ordered a second one as my night cap and it sure did make me feel no more pain.

Not my go to style but jumped at the chance since I love barrel aged beers. Absolutely delicious with that barrel flavor I was looking for and way beyond with a tense spice flavor. Had on tap at North High Brewing columbus.

Draft. Now this is a tripel. Cloudy orange. Little head. Wow this is awesome. Nice smooth bourbon that covers up the things I usually dislike about Belgium yeast.

At Beer Study. Very murky cloudy amber pour with creamy off white head. Nose is very rich with wood and bourbon. Very heavy nose, singular. Super bourbony flavor, vanilla, and wood. Some fruity notes show. Full and creamy palate. Warming finish. A nice beer but really just a conduit for bourbon.

This ale looked and smelled like a trippel, but it’s flavor was harsh and what few decent notes it possessed passed quickly.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tulip on tap at the Moerlein Lager House.. For $12, wow.. Clear orange color. Minimal white head. Little lace. Whiskey barrel evident in the nose, not much else otherwise. Bigger body. Soft lighter carbonation. Dry texture. Lemon zest in the taste, some vanilla. Light alcohol bite and little warmth in the finish. Long vanilla bourbon lightly oaky aftertaste is nice to savor. Nice to sip and try but not worth the cost. Does gets better as it sits, though

Hazy amber beer, tidy off white head. Light dry palate. Dry from the alcohol it feels like. Sweet malts with some vanilla oak but alcohol - whilst not too hot - really gets in the way. Dry finish. Okay in small doses.
