4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft! Pours a dark amber color with a tan head. Aroma has hints of vanilla with a light bourbon smell. Taste was great and out of the four tasting they had for Widmer last night it was by far my favorite. Must be something to say since I ordered 2 13 oz pours after my tasting. worth the try.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,65l Bottle. Clear, amber brown color. small lacing head. Aroma is truly a bourbon cask, vanilla oak wood and dark chocolate, sharp ethanolic. Reminds of a bourbon cask aged scottish whisky. Dry, light sour with a bitter finish, the 9.4 ABV are present. Aftertaste has some more bourbon barrel, with dominant simcoe and cascade hops. Medium to thick body, with an average carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a ruddy brown color with a khaki head. The aroma is straight up bourbon overload with lots of butterscotch, vanilla, wood and fruitiness. The flavor is pretty much the same. Caramel, vanilla, bourbon, wood and mild fruitiness near the finish. Alcohol is noticeable, but not too oppressive. Just ok.

Bottle with melted plastic on the top - has a ruby red/orange look to it with a medium head and lacing. I can definitely taste a woody bourbon flavor that is smooth. Has a creamy smooth mouthfeel. Somewhat dry. Good!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is complex tones of vanilla, alcohol, peanuts, bourbon, wood, caramel, hints of red berries, raisins and nougat. Taste is caramel, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, wood, raisins, nougat and hints of coconut, alcohol and burnt sugar. Medium to full body, dry woody finish, medium to soft carbonation. A real treat; complex, big, bold and yet very smooth and drinkable - this is barrel aging at its finest. A solid and original creation from Widmer Brothers, well brewed.
