(01.21.06) On tap at the Horse & Plow, Kohler, WI. Clear bourbon barrel aged brown ale having an average off-white head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Faint malt aroma. Medium bodied ale that starts with light malt sweetness and hop flavor. Finishes dry. No discernable bourbon flavor. A good drinkable ale.

Pailhead (4820) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of The_Enemy via a bonus box. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, bourbon, and roasted nuts. Pours a transparent garnet with a small off-white head that quickly fades to ring. Light caramel up front. Finishes with a moderate roasty nuttiness and chocolate, with some light notes of bourbon. Iím not a big fan of the nutty and bourbon combintation. I like bourbon aged beers and Iím not gerenally a fan of brown ales, but Iím guessing I would like this brown ale better without the bourbon.

Pours dark brown with a hint of orange. Tastes of oak and toffee. It might be a bit thin but it is still enjoyable.

BrockLanders (772) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Poured a dark brown with a slightly orangish tint. Sweet malty nose, touch of oakiness too. Flavor is all about roasty malt, toffee and some bourbon notes. Some hops a litter later on, but just a little. The oaky whiskey flavor stays the entire time along with the sweet malt flavor. Not too bad, I liked it.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) Sounds like a bad sequel for Sylvester Stallone, but it tastes much better. I was initially put off by this beer when I took my first sip. I went from "Mmm, wow!" to "Eww". But whatever that harsh finish was only lasted a sip or two, and now Iím wondering what the hell was wrong with me because this is really tasty. Sweet, malty, and chocolaty, with the added bonus of moderate apparency of bourbon barrel aging, showing nice restraint with mild vanilla and some almond. Unfortunately, the nose doesnít come close to matching the pleasantness of the flavor. In fact, this beerís aroma is mediocre at best, smelling of dry twigs, grain, some alcohol, and to some extent, rather lagerish. Body is light-medium, so given the flavor, Iíd like to see a bit more oomph on the palate. Light brown in color, and showing perfect clarity, the beer is capped by a half inch of light tan head that settles to a ring in typical fashion. However, some stringy lacing is left on the glass like an old, damaged spiderweb. Seriously, get the aroma in shape and add some body and this would be a wonderful beer. Itís still very tasty though, and thatís mostly what I care about anyway.

Aroma of toffee, toasted almond, vanilla. Appears a clear but deep mahogany brown, with a small head of creamy white. Flavor is hazelnut, vanilla, and bourbon, with distinct wood notes; very delicate. Palate is medium-light, a bit thin, a bit watery, a bit bubbly. Overall, this is a fine brew, and equal to the sum of its parts. My thanks to joeybgood for this treat.

12 oz bottle, from the Woodmans on Gammon Road, Madison WI. An immense frothy tan-cream head dies slowly, leaving thick crystal lacing along the sides of the glass and surmounting a clear mahogany somewhat oily liquid...delightful nutty (hazelnut-walnut) aroma lightly kissed by woody-vanilla bourbon character and a hint of pine tar...wonderfully creamy, mellow body with plenty of that vanilla character again, nutty and lightly fruity, with some nice burnt chocolate notes towards the finish, no hops to speak of but thatís ok with all the nice caramelized malt and the acerbic ashy stuff at the end. This is a top-notch example of the style, for sure, and for once the bourbon character really adds depth and refinement to something that might have been rather ordinary otherwise.

12oz bottle.
Fascinating stuff. Pours a clear dark auburn brown with enthusiastic white head that slowly gives way leaving a ring around the rim. Aroma is somewhat faint but eventually one detects medium-toasted grain, vanilla and molasses. I have to confess I wasnít sure how well the bourbon-barrel concept would work with a brown ale. It works with this beer, and hereís why: the bourbon-barrel characteristics (vanilla, oak, molasses, dash of whiskey) are dialed down and more of a background feature than dominant flavor characteristics. It is still primarily a toasty, nutty dry-ish moderately hopped English-style ale with subtle, well-integrated touches of the aforementioned vanilla/molasses/wood characteristics. Medium body, bubbly & slightly oily palate. Iím still not convinced that bourbon-barrelizing a brown ale is the best application of this trend, but if it is to be done, this is how to do it. Well done, Tyranena.

a boubony (but not overpowring) aroma, drk tan color, no head. a bit sweet, but the bourbon undertones makes this an enjoyable brew.
