Draught at Falling Rock, GABF week 2007. Pours brown with an average, creamy, light brown head, lasting with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (cookie, bread, nutty), light hops (perfume), light yeast (dough) with notes of average alcohol and vanilla. Medium bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

Ernest (6656) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Falling Rock (GABF 2007 week). Head is mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber to medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel), with a strong note of bourbon, notes of wood and sulphur. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Seems to be bourbon barrel aged, specifically, but Im not sure about that. Certainly extremely whisky-ish, way too much for my tastes.
