gdaigle (12) - North Oaks, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2009
This is a well-made beer. Well-balanced malt sweetness, alcohol, slight hop note and the perfect amount of flavor from the bourbon barrels. I have a 15.5 gal keg of this at my house. It is well-received by company and still a complex enough beer for me to enjoy. I’d add a slightly more pronounced malt sweetness to the beer, offsetting that with more barrel aging but they have done an excellent job without any suggestions from me.

Pours a clear but dark brown color with khaki colored head. Roasted malts, oak, vanilla, some light whiskey notes, and a little caramel on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium to full bodied. Finishes with roast and caramel woody sweetness.

ICEatALAMO (1217) - 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 (3545) - 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.

PotjeBier (2278) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2015
12 oz bottle from De Bierkoning @ home. Twist off cap exploded from the bottle as I twisted it off, hitting a glass out of my spectacles, luckily I was wearing them or I would have missed an eye. Not gushing though. Deep red-brown color, clear. Big uneven beige head with good retention, sticking to the glass. Aroma’s of bourbon, vanilla, red fruits, light wood, sweet malts. Retronasal it’s sweet, red fruits, some bourbon/vanilla. Flavor is moderate to full sweet, vanilla. Light to medium bodied. A bit high carbo. Finishes with a bit of roasted malts, just hints of bitterness. Imo bourbon usually goes better with the higher strength beers, this was actually well done and went down well as a dessert.
