howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2007
Heavy bourbon. Like a bad barleywine with a shot of JD in it. Actually couldn’t finish a bottle. The rest will go in the cellar.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2006
On tap at the brewery. Light dark brown (if that makes sence) pour w/ a brownish small head and some light lacing. Aroma heavily of carmel and lots of bourbon notes, some definate grahm crackers, then some more bourbon (overdone if you ask me). Plate is pretty avg, some creaminess or maybe just alcohol in the swallow. Flavor was nothing special mostly the barreling that comes through and some real weak beer notes. Not very good.

JPDIPSO (5604) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 5, 2006
On tap at the brewery. Clear dark brown color with a hint of cherry-wood. Small, but stable dark beige head. Bourbon sticky bun aromas. Lots of bourbon and caramel in the nose. Strong bourbon influence throughout. A strong brown, which translates to me as more caramel, with a really heavy dose of bourbon. Very strong with the typical bourbon notes. Even a slight burn in the finish. For me it is lacking malt depth. Perhaps its the style, and this just doesn’t hold the bourbon as well as I had hoped. Too much like a amber with a shot of whiskey in it.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Tap @ GTMW 2006. Semi-hazed and lucid light chestnut in color with saliva wisps to form the head. Caramel and bourbon fondness easily find the nose, teaming with maple syrup and amaretto scented honey graham crackers. Flavor easily transitions into said graham persona, with a mild numbing tingle at the tongue’s tip. Almonds realize a sugary grenadine brethren but bleed out to the bourbon-accented honey suckle rose. Kittle cocktails with bourbon added under the discretion of the house bartender and a hint of caramel cola underlying it all. Most of the roasty and chocolatey accents hang in the background, letting the other aforementioned elements take center stage. Medium-bodied inferences and hazelnut vanilla wafer graham crust comes through in the finish, with a tongue dabble of grenadine emitted as an extra sweet treat.
