(Bottled 11/17/06 via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/View-User-38026.htm target=blank>buckybeer, thanks Mark!) Interesting but didnít really work for me...Pours clear and the color of weakly brewed tea. Only about 1/2" of tan head. Aroma to me is mint-like, along with sugary bourbon. Mouthfeel pretty smooth but thinnish. Kind of dryish on the palate. Spotty patches of lacing. Tastes kind of like watery bourbon and mint, maybe some brown sugar. At times feels like a mint julep, and at other times like a boilermaker. Sometimes also just seemed like a pedestrian brown ale with bourbon booziness. More vanilla flavor as it warms. Maybe if there was a ballsier beer underneath this it would be better but I didnít think it was that great.

Bottle from Styles. Fairly clear, brown colored beer, slightly reddish when backlit. Compact light beige head forms and fades slowly to a ring leaving decent to nice lacing in its wake. Aroma is malty with nice touches of oak, vanilla and bourbon. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Malty, light chocolate, bourbon and higher alcohols blend pleasantly in the flavor. Pretty decent, a nice job of blending the beer with the barrel without either becoming dominant.

jasonp (1557) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Sampled at Dutch 70ís "Tasting in the Woods; Part Deux." Dark clear brown/amber with a white head. Caramel and bourbon and some sort of artificial element that I canít quite pinpoint in the nose. Flavor has notes of vanilla, wood, bourbon and caramel. Sweet and a little "boozy". Light bodied with somewhat of a watery texture with subtle carbonation.

Bottle: Hazy ruddy brown color with a white head. Aroma, of bourbon, caramel, and some oak. Flavor, caramel, toffee, some bourbon. There is a bit of a sticky sweetness to it. Medium bodied, the bourbon isnít overpowering which is nice. Pretty solid stuff.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2009 Interesting beer, poured from bottle leaving a decent white head and a moderately strong scent of bourbon rising from the glass. I was somewhat surprised by the bourbon in the flavor and a slightly sour aftertaste in the beer. I received this beer VERY recently, so I canít attribute the sourness to oxidation, I guess it came with the woody flavor that also filled the aftertaste. I would love to try this beer on tap to compare bottle vs tap. While a good beer, it did not integrate the heavy presence of bourbon into the brown ale as well as I had hoped.

From bottle. Pours a reddish brown with thin tan head. Nose is bourbon and brwon sugar. Flavor follows with hints of malts and nutty. Some of the typical brown ale flavors with some bitter in the finish. Nice palate and a good use of bourbon.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - NOV 29, 2006
12 oz bottle shared with and provided by gputty. Clear mahogany with a tan head. Big bourbon nose that mellows and lets a nice nuttiness flow through as it warms. Nice, thick body and good lacing. Bourbon flavors over a nice, even nutty malt backbone. This is a good example of a case where bourbon barrel aging pays off - beautifully integrated with the existing flavors of the original beer. Good stuff!

Bottle thanks to the generous jpm30. Rich brown colour, but unique to get it that way. White head that lasts a while. Bourbon aroma, and bold bourbon taste. We Canadians are not normally into bourbon, but a good effort at it. Sourish by-product, well malted away.

12 oz. Bottle sent to me by the Mother in Law. Wow bourbon aroma stands out for this beer if you want to call it beer. Brown body with decent head. Flavor is like a little malt presence with your whiskey. Little more like whiskey than beer. Without looking at alcohol content would of thought it was higher.
