3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with off white head that quickly fades. Not much lacing. Faint aroma of caramel and toffee maybe a little bourbon. Taste is moderate sweet with mild bitterness. Toffee, caramel, biscuits, maple and a faint bourbon taste. Definitely not as much bourbon as I expected. Pretty good for a brown ale. Definitely sessionable beer with pretty good flavor.

Decent for a brown, but not much bourbon to be found. Still good enough to drink more, though

12oz bottle pours a dark amber/brown with a medium khaki head. Fruity aroma with caramel and cocoa, oaky vanilla, and a touch of bourbon. Oak and bourbon are on the forefront of the palate with sweet caramel malt underneath. Yep bourbon in a brown ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. bottle. Aroma of sweet brown malts, nutty with touches of bourbon, hazelnut, vanilla, dark bread and brown sugar. Clear medium brown in color with a nonexistent head and therefore no lacing to speak of. Flavor is similar to aroma, except with a touch more hop bitterness than expected, nice nutty malt finish, some hop spice also. Thin and effervescent mouthfeel, body is medium. Touch of earthiness late. Interesting stuff.
