Bottle courtesy of Kenny today at his and Nikki’s housewarming. Very faint color. Nose is a little boozy and funky, not really sweet or sour. Prominent funkiness, almost bret-like notes with a bit of raisin or other dried fruit. Not as sour as hoped but a nice drink.

trapped (1385) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 5, 2015
Draught @ Waterfront Ale House. Reddish amber with medium sized spngy beige head, caramel-whisky aroma, low carbonation, sweet bourbon dominated taste, long finish with alcohol aftertaste. Feels more alcoholic that it actually is.

GIJOE (929) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 31, 2015
On tap at the ACBF in Boston. Pours a slightly orangey brown with a small off-white head. Nose is boozy caramel, dried fruits, and a touch of funk. Flavor is somewhat sweet with a tart edge. Not bad.

HeadyDE (594) - Delaware, USA - JAN 31, 2015
750 bottle pour..easy pop out..larger than anticipated 2 finger frothy head..nicely carbonated..medium copper color..aroma is interesting but doesn’t live up to the bottle..the bourbon is not readily present but what is slight must and grainy malt mixed i assume with some of the corn grits..mouthfeel is medium bodied slightly smooth with a moderate warming presence from the barrel on the end..the wood from the barrel doesn’t really produce the vanilla, char or typical character from bourbon barrel aging..bleh all around...

AirForceHops (4530) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 3, 2015
750 ml bottle, stamp on neck reads 5/14/14. Murky brown color with flat carbonation. Aroma is odd to say the least. … Butter, weak bourbon and caramel, butter soaked raisins? Jeez, the flavor is sadly the same. Something must have went wrong with the base brew because a bourbon barrel beer should taste this buttery and sweet. What is the base beer style? I’m sorry but this recipe really needs to go back to the drawing board. Glad this was split 4 ways… 3 oz was enough

WillRunForBeer (1432) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Yet another bottle shared by Adrien, thanks! Pours medium orange brown with just a touch of white head. Aroma is caramel, mild bourbon. Flavor is caramel, dark fruits, slight acetic sour. Over extracted coffee bitter in the finish.

AdamChandler (3590) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottled 5-14-2014: Thanks Adrien. This is a peach colored 1 finger head looks bottle carbonated but not quite sure. The nose is mildly yeasty, a slight pepper, raisin and persimmon with baked bread. Decent mouthfeel, creamy with some sweet creamed corn, finish is a sweet butterscotch caramel candy. Not a lot going on but not horrible.
