Bottled, no date. Pours a reddish mahogany with a moderate beige head. Definite aroma of bourbon, nuts, and toffee malts. Big bourbon taste, with nuts and toffee in the background. A little bit of alcohol in there too, despite the kinda low alcohol content. Medium-light bodied. Pretty decent brew.

Thin,watery and very little flavor in this one.More like a very small portion aged in barrels.Some caramel notes but just a lousy brew.

Pours a reddish brown color with a small soapy head, lowish carbonation. Nice, light brown sugar and whiskey aroma. Lots of sweet malt and bourbon barrel-associated flavors, but reminded me of whiskey & flat cola.

Bottle from Bodega in La Crosse. Dark amber/brown color with a medium off-white head. Good lacing throughout. Aroma of bourbon, malt and nuts. Medium body with an earthy texture, and the bourbon aging is apparent throughout. Malty, nutty flavors as well. The finish is nutty also with a light alcohol burn left behind. Good all around.

12 oz bottle courtesy of The_Enemy. This beer pours to a beautiful, deep caramel to brown color, with a thick, creamy, off white head, and a soft carbonation. The nose on this beer is very inviting, with aromas of sweet malt, nuts, light toast, and hints of vanilla. The palate is soft, with good flavors of sweet malt, nuts, and light hints of vanilla and oak. This beer finishes with more good flavors of malt, and nut flavor, then ends with hints of oak and vanilla that linger. A portion of bourbon barrel aged beer is blended with this brown ale, and that gives this beer nice bourbon flavors of oak and vanilla . Very tasty, very enjoyable beer. This one would work well with deserts, or make a great beer to enjoy after a nice meal.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2006 Bottle. Pours light brown in color with a nice tan head. I found it to be a medium bodied beer with a nice smooth finish. It has a good balance of bourbon and roasted taste. There seems to be a bit of a coffee, caramel flavor as well. This was a good brown ale that I enjoyed and will certainly drink again.

Continuing with the ongoing barrel aged saga is a dark red pour with a truly heroic white head that does not wish to subside at all and when it is forced to leaves a pretty lacing behind. I have to say I am pleased to see a nice thick head on a barrel-aged beer. There is a touch of bourbon in the nose along with some cherry and wood and a touch of something nutty, pecan maybe? Yep, it taste like a bourbon all right, that is what dried my tongue out and caused me to lean back for a moment to regroup. Cotton candy like flavor mixes with the booze here in a not completely harmonious way. Grape and oak tangle their way into the picture to. A gummy finish to this. This reminds me of buffalo trace bourbon. I like buffalo trace, but I’m not sure about this beer. A bit of burnt caramel here that is disconcerting. It is strange, there are a lot of good flavors here, but combined they do not make a tasty beverage. There is the sweet nut flavor, the cotton candy, the smooth bourbon flavor with it’s woody magnificence, the bubble gum finish, but combined it is just not to my liking. It’s not bad, just not right somehow Ap-5 ar-7 tas-4 pal-2 ov-9

Thanks to Hopdog for this bottle. Pours deep amber rather than brown with a thin lasting head and good lace. Aroma is initially light bourbony, with hints of oak and earth, then gives way to nutty and caramel malts. Light smoke is noticed in the aroma as well. Light roasted flavor, more nuts and finishes with a light bourbon aftertaste. For a lighter beer style to be aged in bourbon I was expecting the bourbon to take over the aromas and flavors but it actually goes pretty well in this beer. Finishes very smooth and clean, but leaves a nice aftertaste.

Courtesy of The_Enemey <P> A bourbon barrel aged brown ale...hehe ohh yeah! <P> Aroma was mostly just a sweet malty affair with a bit of nuttiness and the barest whiff of wood and bourbon. Light brown/red in color with a thin white film of a head. Fore is low intensity sweet malts, light nuttiness and little else. The finish is all watery bourbon and wood. Not much in the way of range, but not bad tasting and I usually don’t like bourbon.

Bonus bottle from The_Enemy. I enjoyed this beer, though it seemed more like a dopplebock than an ale to me (just shows how undeveloped my palate is). The aroma was quite faint, with something unidentifiable. Maybe it was the bourbon, but it wasn’t pronounced enough to be enjoyable if that’s what it was. The flavor was malty and subtle. I would drink this again.
