The smell of bourbon was fairly strong. This beer was something very rare. It was velvety smooth, warming, and hinted of the barrels it lived in. I was very thankful that my friend decided to share it with me.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 Strong oak aroma. Bourbon and malts are also noticeable. Clear dark golden color with a small white head that dissipates. Taste is malty with a strong sweet smooth oak finish.

Pours a hazy deep gold with minimal head and modest lacing. Alcohol, vanilla, mango, and papaya to the nose. Taste is well balanced with malt, hops, and tropical fruit flavors melding together with the noticeable alcohol content. Great mouthfeel, very smooth and well carbonated.

JohnnyJ (5498) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Orange appearance with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, zesty spice, and a little alcohol. Flavors of light fruit, sweet malt, a hint of caramel, pepper, and some oak. Pretty good, but nothing amazing.

dunkelbitte (20) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Tap at Andys Corner Bar. Very interesting beer. Golden, slightly cloudy with a negliginle head. Theres more than a hint of bourbon to it. Its difficult to describe it because it is a truly unique flavor. It hits our tongue sour, but it is simultaneously sweet throughout.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 4, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2008 Aroma of honey, sourness, bourbon, slightly fruity with hints of caramel and some white wine character. The palate starts lively and bright and transitions to a crisp oaky dryness on the tongue as swallowed. The taste starts out equally sweet and sour transitiioning to a pleasant honey taste, which is quickly replaced by the boubon flavor, transitioning again to a slightly sour oaky dryness and finishing with a lingering alcoholic warmth and peppery spicyness. This beer is in a word, complex.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Pours amber, slightly haziness with a tall soft off-white head. Very oaky aroma, lots of spices and a big sweet caramel and bourbon backing. The bourbon isnt as strong as i was expecting, more of the dry oak flavor shows, the bourbon must just get mixed in with the sweetness. This beer feels very dry on the palate resulting from the high carbonation and the dry oak flavor. This beer has sat for a while so there was no excess alcohol flavors.

nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2007
Bottle. Hazy orange pour with a short white head. Aroma of coconut, oak, and other bourbon elements. Flavors of yeast, vanilla, oak, and coconut. Medium bodied...nutty...decent carbonation though a bit watery at times with a dry/sweet finish.

Palidor19 (3177) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2007
Aroma is almost pure oak. Slight hint of fruit. Taste is very wooden. The oak Bourbon flavors give off its characters. the malts are soaked in the Bourbon-esque flavor. giving this a lively beer, to sip.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2007
The aroma is tremendous with a whole lot of bourbon and a decent amount of malt, wood, and yeast. The appearance is is deep gold and cloudy with an orange tint to it. The flavor is strong and sweet and very much like the aroma. The palate is smooth with an alcohol finish. Overall its well made but to strong to be a session beer. This is more like liquor.
