The beer is brown in color, light tan head, nothing special. The aroma and taste as you would expect are very nutty. The nut on the aroma is ok, but it overwhelms the taste and makes it just all about it. The feel and drinkability are ok, but nothing special BuckeyeBoy (7669) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2011
On tap at Ebenezer’s Pours out a dark brown almost black topped with a small tan head. Aroma was sweet, roast malts, vanilla, caramel, pit fruit, and some wood. Taste was much as the aroma with the sweetness leading the way caramel, and vanilla.

Pours dark brown win a somewhat thin tan head. Nose brings a good amount of depth with bourbon, roast, vanilla, and chocolate. He taste features bourbon and some oak along with roasted mmalt and chocolate. Hints of vanilla and booze. Good body with a nice boozy touch. Drinks quite well; really executed this concept quite nicely.

(Sample Date: 5/4/2010 Source:Capital Ale House - Downtown) Chocolate and coffee with vanilla and wood in aroma. Black with a tan head. Flavor follows aroma with a nice play between bourbon vanilla and maybe some resiny hops. Finish is medium sweet with whiskey and vanilla residual.

Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Nice reddish brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet and light roasted malt, caramel and dry fruit. Flavor is really smooth caramel, mild malt, dry fruit and a hint of wood. Very smooth and balanced, long and pleasant finish – wow! Photog (215) - Camillus, New York, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Might have to rerate this later since I just had a taste but this was quite the beer. I personally didn’t care for it however it was quite complex. Very strong wheat flavor. Definitely had that aged bourbon barrel taste, very smoky. Black pour with a tan head. kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Draft. Pours murky deep brown, topped with a small tan head. Aroma of vanilla and cocoa, with bourbon taking the back seat. Flavor begins with chocolate and oak, with vanilla in the background. The bourbon comes through towards the finish, and clings to the palate, along with cocoa. Exceptionally smooth. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2010

pours deep brown...not quite black...with a medium tan head. retention and lacing arent impressive. aroma has notable vanilla and bourbon with hints of caramel and roastiness. flavor has sweet vanilla, some woodiness, caramel, and spicy hops...bourbon is an afterthought. mouthfeel is slightly lively with a light yet creamy mouthfeel. finish is mildly warming and has a hint of bourbon and spicy hops that balance the roasty malts nicely.
