Bottle sample poured by Garrett Oliver at The Denver Rare Beer Tasting event during GABF week on 9/25/09. pours a hazy yellow with a white head... wonderful sour funky nose... light citrus from the nose through the body... big round presence over the tongue... some more barnyard flavors float throughout while the bourbon barrel takes a back seat... beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - SEP 29, 2009
lovely sour smell. not too pungent. bright alcohol taste. spices really pack a wallop. a lot of competing flavors that still work well together. hopscotch (11182) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle… Second Annual Treasure Coast Beer Fest... Pours hazy and golden with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is of vanilla, butter and pear. Full-bodied and silky with moderate carbonation. The flavor leans on the sweet side of balance with big notations of toffee and butterscotch; lesser notations of vanilla, oak and whiskey. The finish is sweet, and then tangy, and then dry. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy golden color with a small head. Aroma has some faint spice with a little wood and brett and a hint of rubbing alcohol. Flavor is sweet, malty, a little smooth bourbon and finishes very dry. Not bad overall. yespr (47111) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2009
Bottle at CBF09, courtesy of Garrett Oliver. Pours a hazy yellow with a small yet dense white head.. Hoppy and light milky aroma, smooth and inviting. Flavour too has the same mild milky flavour. Smooth and hoppy flavoured before and into the finish. Light bitter and decling into the far finish.

Bottle shared with Dickinsonbeer: (Last bottle at Spuyten) Pours a hazy golden with a nice dense white head. The aroma is oaky, slightly tannic, some soft bourbon/vanilla, peppery phenolics and underlying dry bread crust notes. Fluffy fee with a sweet and spicy flavor that dries out. Starts with a vanilla note from the bourbon at the fore- this initial sweetness is rounded with a soft doughy malt note and later peppery oak and subtle alcohol. Pretty nice, though a touch solventy. I have a theory that some of these bottles were infected, or just poorly conditioned based on some of the previous ratings. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Split the last bottle over at Spuyten last night with PilsnerPeter. Thanks Peter for arranging this. I actually liked this beer quite a bit. Pours a nice slightly hazed golden with a nice fluffy white head and good lace. Aroma is vanilla, oaky woodiness, toasted malts, bready dough, light to moderate bourbon- more straight oak mixed with Belgian yeasty phenols- definitely no diacetyl in our bottle. Flavor is doughy phenolic, light fruity esters, toasted malts, fresh, woody bourbon, vanilla, and light char- smooth and full mouth feel that dries out a bit in the end. I love Local 1 and the bourbon barrel was very subtle so I really dug this beer. puzzl (3260) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Bottle at Spuyten Brett Fest. A horrid wretch of a beer, a complete and utter butter bomb, slightly congealed and rancid. The aroma induces fear all across my body and mild convulsions in my throat — a sure fire sign that I should not drink it. But I trudge on, pouring this evil concoction down my gullet in a most inglorious fashion. This so-called "beer" would be best used as a lobster dip, or perhaps as a spread on a nice toasted bagel — I have little doubt that it would solidify at colder temperatures. yngwie (17186) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle, 75cl corked, served by the brewer, at Copenhagen Beerfestival. A hazy, orange-golden beer with a rather small, off-white head. Bretty nose with citrus, spices, herbs, wheat and fruityness. There’s a little sweetness in the mouth, but it’s more on the bretty, barnyardy sour side, with some herbs and spices as well. Smooth mouthfeel. Finishes with barnyard, fruitynes and a spicy touch. A nice brett-infused beer, still maintaining it’s original flavors. (090517) fonefan (50762) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2009
