12oz bottle via trade with Buckybeer! - Thanks Mark! Pours dark brown with ruby highlights and not much head.. Aromas of bourbon, brown sugar, caramel, some vanilla and a little oak..Flavor is vanilla, oak, caramel, light chocolate, and definite bourbon. Palate is light and somewhat on the watery side I think. Mouthfeel seems almost oily and I think that takes away a little from an otherwise pretty solid brew.

12 0z bottle via Buckyboy(thanks!). Pours a clear dark reddish brown. Nice spicey aroma with notes of pepper, cinnamon, chocolate, and strawberries. Taste is the same with some added alcohol, oak/wood. Not really my thing though...

Thanks to buckybeer fot hsi vastly underrated treasure! Pours dark brown with 1-finger tan head. Huge aroma of oaky bourbon, brown sugar, caramel malt, some vinous fruit, almonds, and scotch. Tastes oaky and bourbony at first, with the mid-palate caramel malt, brown sugar, figs, almonds, and ovaltine hitting the palate. Nice hefty palate and complex flavor. Please get me some more of this!

bonus beer courtesy of Styles in a recent exchange. I like brown ales and I like bourbon aged beers as well, but this one didn’t quite live up to my expectation. aroma is mild bourbon & vanilla with some caramel. flavors are more of the same but seem muted. I like it, just expected a bit more.

Bottle and served in my Newcastle Brown Ale glass: Poured a deep maple hue with a small frothy and lasting off-white head and left okay lace. The aroma has notes of walnut, toasted malt, cafe latte, vapors of vanilla and wood, as well as a notes of aromatic tobacco and floral hops. The taste is a bit surprising as it presents a strange fruity acidic note over toast with a noticeable dash of booze on the finish. A hodgepodge of flavor profiles which is neither refreshing nor revolting. The mouth feel presents an equally confused state as it is lively enough but a crashing dryness on the finish is honestly unwelcoming. Boozy thin and watery as well. Credit for the effort but it just does not work in a complete form. That said, should you get chance to try this then go for it. See what barrel aging does with lower ABV beers.

12 oz bottle, via Styles. Pours a clear light brown colored body under a fizzy one finger light brown head that faded fairly quickly. Aroma doesn’t really lead you to believe that there is much bourbon aging going on here. Mostly just some nutty and toasted malt notes, but there is a very light bourbon and vanilla note. The bourbon’s in the flavor though. Really kind of a weird taste, you don’t expect the dry nutty flavors combined with the oak and bourbon. Reminds me of this bourbon pecans recipe that I make every Christmas. Finish has a touch of vanilla and chocolate with some light alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is fairly light bodied with fizzy carbonation and a thinnish texture. Overall, this is certainly unique. A nice twist to go with the trendy bourbon barrel aging using a not so trendy and usually boring style.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2007 Pours a darksih brown with small head. Has a fair amount of carbonation. Has a nice mild bourbon aroma with light coffee and roasted flavors. A good amount of vanilla also comes through as it warms a bit.

Pooured a clear brown color with a reddish hue and small off-white head. Big vanilla aroma with notes of bourbon, fruit and some sweet malt trying to poke its head out. Malty flavor with less of the barrel character mainly a thin light caramel.

kp’s Fest of 26 Clear, dark brown pour, with a fleeting off-white head. Complex malt aroma with some subdued bourbon notes. Flavor that follows the aroma. Bourbon is not overpowering in this one. Not your everyday brown ale though.
