3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber-brown pour with a thick white head. The aroma has a nice clean, bright hoppiness with a bit of coffee and toffee malt in the middle of the palate. A bit of soft pepper and some moderate sweetness. Okay.

Pours a light brown. Nice bourbon aromas and flavours with a nice hop finish. Don’t think this quite deserves such a high rating though.

Part of a sampler platter. Strange to have the bourbon with a lower ABV beer. OK brown ale.

Reddish-brown pour with an off-white head. The malty aroma has caramel and bread with some wood and earthy notes. It has a medium body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet taste with some light alcohol warmth and an easy finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pretty even keeled, straight forward medium dark ale, the bourbon adding a little bit of oomph, but without being overpowering. Big malt backbone. (#5104, 7/2/2013)

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled in March, pours a nice clear brown with a slight haze. Nice finger head of an off white foam that dissipates into a ring that lasts. The aroma is a bit chocolate forward. Nice sweetness as well with the caramel malt and a slight toasted coconut and bourbon note. Nice carbonation at the front of the tongue that opens into chocolate and caramel malt. Slight hop bitterness but nothing distinguishable. Rolls into more chocolate with a nice mellow bourbon and toasted coconut. Excellent. This in an amazing brown ale. Highly recommend, Fall Winter Spring Summer. The Beer Is Awesome.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 Color is very dark hazelnut though not opaque. Some aroma of malt hints at moderate sweetness on the palate. Bourbon contributes subtly to flavor. Modest balance from hops and alcohol.
