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 donít 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 wasnít pronounced enough to be enjoyable if thatís what it was. The flavor was malty and subtle. I would drink this again.

(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 (5347) - 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 (779) - 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.
