4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice clear amber/copper color. Head is nice and tall and foamy. Great lacing. There is a mild bourbon aroma and I pick up a little smoke and maybe pepper. The taste is bourbony but not boozy. It’s mellow and soft. Vanilla and oak definitely come through. Finishes smooth.

One of my favorites, helps that I have access to as much as I want thanks to an oblivious staff at a local beer shop. Super amounts of bourbon, a great bang for your buck! Especially compared to the current prices for aged stuff these days.

Pours a good head and then disappears but leaves good lacing. Has a clear reddish amber. The taste is bourbon up front of course and some smoky malt flavour, but doesn’t have as much wood barrel flavour as I would have liked. Still a great overall taste.

Thanks Tony! I totally expected an imperial stout when I started putting this into the glass. Somewhat sludgy but a nice okay, vanilla aroma. Caramel malt dominates with lots of oak barrel and vanilla. A nice beer!

Bottled at Hophead. Light brown colour. Sweet vanilla aroma with alcohol notes. Similar taste with additional maltyness and some neutral hop bitterness. Intensive enough aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with off white head - Malts in the aroma with some wood - Raw wood and some vanilla flavours - Wood goes into the finish - This was too much woody flavour to be good, a little bit disapointed over this one

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber - Fire Sale at $3.99. slightly murky medium orange pour, thinnish off-white head. Aroma has a solid bourbon presence, some date-like fruitiness and a touch of molasses. Flavor follows along the the same profile, nice bourbon accents, brown sugar, molasses. Nice sticky mouthfeel. Not overwrought like some Bourbon BA beers tend to be.

It was a good bourbon barrel. Not the best. The light flavor made it best. Sometimes a bourbon is done just for the hell of it. This had substance. The beer itself was quality. Of course hubby hated it. I thought he might like it since the bourbon was light...I was wrong.
