750 ml bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear deep golden amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, biscuity malts, bourbon, vanilla, wood,hints of cocoa with additional hints of citrus, still a bit sweet, Belgian candy sugar, moderate spice character, the bourbon does not dominate this. shigadeyo (3729) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013

12/03/2010: BBC Bourbon Barrel Bier de Garde... Aroma:
Light bourbon and lemony citrus. Appearance: Golden color with a
frothy beige head. Flavor: Slightly doughy and biscuity malts; soft
bourbon flavors (well-balanced); lemony citrus zest and delicate
bitterness. Palate: Medium-full body; thick. Overall: Mild and
super easy to drink.
Draught sample(s) during the BBC "Backroom Brawl" at Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #9 for this beer.
(Draught) clearish orange with a ring of bubbles. Nose of caramel, bourbon, and brown sugar. Taste is a bit tart, caramel, funky cherry, alcohol, cinnamon and raisin. Great linger with a warming sensation. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2011

Whisky aroma. Golden coloured smooth on the palate strong in alcohol and a little fruity with a hint of bitterness in a creamy malt finish. deyholla (11479) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Sampled from the tap at 2010 FOBAB. Poured a clear deep amber with an off-white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma had sweet grains and bread with slight light fruit and bourbon backing. Flavor was full of biscuit and sweet grain with a slight earthy tone and bourbon coming out in the finish.

GABF. Light brown with nice head. Lots of bourbon, oak and vanilla in aroma and taste. Good, but nothing special. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Clear orange with a fizzy white head. Good strong fruit and bourbon aroma. Huge bourbon caramel vanilla and oak taste with tangy fruit tastes. Odde (308) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2010 Flat copper body with a short off-white head. Very strong bourbon aroma and bite. Sweet with a medium body. Mild barnyard behind the taxing watery bourbon bite. Tmoney99 (14365) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Draft sample at Keg Liquor FOA. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate yeast, malt, wood and bourbon aroma. Medium to full body with a soft carbonation and a smooth texture. Medium sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Lots of bourbon aroma and taste here. Enjoyed at the brewery on tap. Aroma is bourbon and vanilla. Hazy copper tone with little to no head. Spicy, peppery flavor drowned in Woodford bourbon. It is very dry with caramel malt sweetness backing up the bourbon.
