Draft at Good Dog. Very hazy amber with a slim off-white head that left a few spots of lace then disappeared. Tastes as described - a bourbon barrel aged version on the Thomas Jefferson Ale. Lots of caramel flavor. Burnt tangerine peels. Dried apricots. Blonde leather. Orange varnish. Nice that the Bourbon brings a fuller nose and deepens the existing flavors without needing to bring an overpowering alcohol feel to the mix.

12 Oz. Bottle poured a dark amber little head (when away pretty quickly). Aroma of bourbon and malts. Taste of bourbon (predominant) caramel and malts and a little of citrus, it is sweet, dry towards the end. Overall an Solid nice beer.

HighlanderOne (1004) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Poured from bottle. Aroma of vanilla cake, pepper. Good lookin amber, beige head, lacing. I taste lager hops, vanilla, pepper, spice. Just a bit of alcohol in the back. I wonder if they were brewing 8% back in TJ’s day? Nice lacing. Well done. I guess the founding fathers drank well.

Draught at Craft Ale House: Aroma of Bourbon, vanilla, slight caramel, slight wood, light butterscotch, and slight citrus. Poured amber/orange in color with a medium-sized, creamy, rocky, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of Bourbon, vanilla, slight hops, light wood, and light caramel. Medium to full body. Viscous, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Bourbon, vanilla, slight wood finish is dry. 8%ABV is completely hidden throughout.
