12oz bottle -

Interesting beer and I can see this having some serious potential. But I think the brewers left this beer in the barrels juuuust a bit long, because the whiskey and wood really dominated this brown ale. Beers this delicate sometimes get overrun with the whiskey compounds, and this was really overrun. The beer pours out a semi-cloudy chesnut brown body, with an off-white/light tan head. The head melts out quickly and left no lacing behind. Aroma is light whiskey, some moldy walnuts, a touch of vanilla and maple syrup. Flavor is dominated by the whiskey. Vanilla, woody, some rubbing alcohol, and a mouth pucking tannic teabag flavor. Really dry, which doesn’t help balance out the whiskey. Mouthfeel is a little hot, rather electric and distracting. If they could leave a little of the residual sweetness in there, and back off the whiskey aging a smidge, this would be a really nice beer.

seymour (1827) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Shared at the StlBrews meeting from 12oz can into a nonic half-pint glass. It poured a clear reddish brown colour with persistent beige foam and lace. Extremely malty sticky-sweet, toasty and nutty, not nearly attenuated enough yet somehow still way too boozy. Really unpleasant hot fusel alcohols, plus some funky sourness. Wood, vanilla, bourbon. Lactose sugar, maybe? No matter, I can’t believe this was how they meant it turn out.

ICEatALAMO (1243) - Troy, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Bottle. The pour is a dark amber with a thick head. The aroma is more whisky than bourbon imo. The taste is a good mix of booze and that of a brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eructoblaster (3601) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2015
On tap at Howells & Hood (Chicago, IL). Brown hazy body with a thin off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with woody, brown sugar and vineous hints. Good malty/hoppy taste with oaky, grainy, fruity, and cocoa notes. I was expecting stronger bourbon flavors. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish.
