Bottle at Tony/Jim BA Birthday Extravaganza 2013 (Western Springs, IL). Pours a nice darker amber brown hue, gentle copper glow on the edges with decent haziness. Frothy offwhite head atop stays as a decent filmy layer, ok lacing. Aromas are citrusy lemon, orange and gentle dryness. Vanilla, butterscotch and oak. Mellow spirit and sweetness. Initial is medium bodied, perhaps a bit more full with toasty malts, biscuits and cherries. Firmer citrus rind is oranges, gentle oak and vanilla. Touches of spiruit and warmth, toast and biscuits. Some soapy earth, dryness and oak. A bit tannic, not hot but a firmer non-descript sweeter strong ale. Backend is a bit biscuity, some vanilla, and gentle tartness, a bit tannic and dry. A weird beer, the Bourbon doesnít offer that much life. Still, itís ok. Looks great. Gentle warmth grows a touch.

Drought. Hazy dark amber appearance with small foamy beige head, caramel aroma, strong bourbon taste, bitter finish. Great beer, have to have more!

Not bad, but you can really taste the alcohol and I don't recommend letting it get warm. You will only make that mistake once.

Shared from a 750 bottle. Malty and caramel sweet. Boozy. Memories not strong as it was from the end of the night and my notes are brief. Tasty.

Hazy glowing brown. Nutty creamy smells. Creamy nutty taste that fades to a bourbon bite that hits then fades. Medium thick mouth-feel.

Burnt tangerine and chestnut pour with a small khaki head. Boozy bourbon, caramel, and maybe a hint of vanilla and dark fruit. This one isnít complex at all. Alcohol forward. Expected this from Widmer, was hoping for more from Cigar City.
