3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled 6/13/13. Poured 9/29/13. Deep brown with a dense, fluffy just off-white head. Aroma is bourbon, wood, brown sugar, molasses, cocoa, coffee, hint of soy. Taste is really quite nice; molasses, dark fruit (dark berries), bourbon, wood, vanilla, earthy, herbal; finish is dry, bourbon, some cocoa. Nice lacing. Mouth feel is medium-full; deceptive. Medium carbonation; higher than expected. Overall, quite nice. Tasty; not TOO far from being sessionable. Not quite as exciting as some of their other beers, still a nice offering from Tyranena.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured into a English pint glass a fizzy dark copper with a light khaki head that peetered out quickly leaving s very small ring in edge of glass. Faint aromas of malt, barley, vanilla, nutmeg. Light to medium carbonation tasting of chocolate, hint of vanilla, bourbon. A nicely balanced brown ale with just enough burn from the bourbon aging to give it a nice finish. Would have liked a little more body to it but overall a nice brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to taster. Looks good; a transparent copper with off-white lacing. Smells malty and nutty with a touch of bourbon. Tastes like it smells, only more robust, and withh more of a bourbon presence. Solid on the palate. A little thin, but good nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle shared. Malted milk balls dipped in bourbon. That’s about the best description I get for aroma and partial taste. In the flavor you get more bourbon. There seems to be a creaminess blend to all of this and it works. Very smooth in taste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to pint glass. Pours brown with a great amber hue when held up to light. Nice 2 finger light tan head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Very malty aroma of roasted peanuts, hazelnut, toasted white bread, toffee and caramel. Taste is roasted nut, caramel, toffee, hint of bourbon, and a spicy black pepper kick. A little alcohol burn going down, but it is subtle. Malty finish with the alcohol burn that brings in the roasted nuts with a toasted white bread taste. Palate is full body, slick and slightly creamy texture, high carbonation, and an average finish but with a pretty big aftertaste, (described above). Very enjoyable beer and highly drinkable! Just the right amount of bourbon to give it a kick and a burn, but contained to the background and compliments the other flavors nicely without overpowering. Definetly worth seeking out.

Pours a deep amber with creamy medium tan head, lasting with a little drippy lace. Aroma is light sweet bourbon, caramel, touch of balanced fruit. Medium body. Taste matches aroma; caramel, light sweet bourbon, touch of vanilla. Sweet. malty. Enough bitterness to keep things balanced. Dry finish. Very nice beer

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.
