UPDATED: DEC 14, 2005 Now this is a well crafted beer. Pouring a dark brown in color, it was virtually headless. The aroma carried a nice whiff of bourbon over a nutty malt, nicely blending for this one-time heavy bourbon drinker. It’s a bit thin in the mouth, but the malt and bourbon retain that mellow blending with a touch of woody smoke added. The bourbon swells somewhat in the finish, making this a very satisfying brew.

Bottled. Pours dark brown with almost no head. Not much in the way of aroma, some burnt wood. There is a slight presence of alcohol. I am not sure I would be able to tell it was partially bourbon barrel aged if it wasn’t on the label. A rather well done beer.

Hints of smoke/oak/and bourbon in the aroma. Texture is a little too thin to support the fairly robust aroma/flavor profiles. Flavors of nuts, oak, smoke, bourbon, toffee, and toasted grain. Surprisingly good.

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Poured a medium and cloudy brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of light vanilla, caramel, nuts, lightly woody with some bourbon. Tastes of nuts, woodiness, toasted malts and light bourbon. Thinner body. The barrel aging does not take front stage (only a portion aged in bourbon barrels) but makes it self known.

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Pours tranparent (when to light) deep brownish red with a large white head. Aroma is of stivky sweet malt, brown sugar, a bit of wood, a bit of sweet bourbon. Flavor is of molasses, some toasty nutty malt, slight marshmellow, some wood, and a funky bourbon kick in the finish hitting the back of the throat. Body is thin. Palate borders on watery. Decent but there is something that falls a little short in the flavor, the bourbon is not sharp but it does not meld with the flavor how a I would like and the body is a little light but on the upside it is quite drinkable for a barrel aged beer.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2007 8/31/05: Light brown color with a medium head. Slightly sour aroma with some smoky overtones. The taste is quite dry, with a light and woody flavor of oak and bourbon. A fair dosage of the grain silo effect. 6/3/6/3/13 Re-rate, 10/13/07: Slight aroma of oak, chocolate and bourbon. Nutty taste with a moderate dosage of oak, vanilla, sweet bourbon and malt. Much, much better the second time around.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2005 medium body, lively carbonation when drank, appearance is a darker brown for a brown ale, had from the bottle and Tyranena brewery, much preferred at the brewery. Very good

Bottle thanks to my Secret Santa. Nice dark red color with a thin cream head. Rather standard brown ale aroma, a little bit roasted, a little bit sweet, not really any bourbon showing through. Flavor is pretty nice, a bit of cherry and wood, but mostly a subtle roasted malt flavor. Good palate, it isnt hoppy or offensive, like a brown ale is expected to be relaxed.

Tried this beer at State Fair. Not a bad beer, but not as good as I was hoping for. Good, but not great.

thx to santa for this one. I certainly didn’t get any bourbon flavor/n otes on this one, but for the most part it’s a reasonably done brown ale
