HeadyDE (542) - 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 (3773) - 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 (1002) - 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.

AdamJackson (3077) - 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.

hopscotch (9840) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with a huge, frothy, off-white head. Terrific retention. The aroma offers restrained notes of caramel and bourbon. Light-bodied and watery with modest carbonation. The flavor is bitter, thin, and then dry. Not really all that boozy; just over-attenuated and too damn bitter. When did Phil forget how to brew good beer? He was a rock star in my eyes - back in the day, when he was brewing “inside” Southampton Publick House.

Travlr (14189) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle courtesy of BeerandBlues2, thanks! Hazy dark amber color. Aroms og dpiced butterscotch. Taste is spiced scotch. Decent.

BeerandBlues2 (10386) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast and cookie malt, vanilla and bourbon with oak, dates and figs. Flavor is oak, vanilla, bourbon, dates and figs with toast and cookie malt, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

50belair (2656) - Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle shared by Hopscotch. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Cheap bourbon and malty characteristics. So confused. No direction, what the hell is this? Below average body and mouthfeel.

chinchill (2460) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2014
750{?} ml bottle. Deductions for overly thin body and a hint of tobacco smoke. Moderate bourbon barrel but perhaps a bit more than the underlying malt/hop load can withstand gracefully. A odd but acceptable touch of tartness
