On tap at WA Winter Beer Festival 2015, pours an opaque dark amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out lots of barrels - very boozy and woody. Flavour is similar, with booze and wood dominating. Not getting any residual spices. All wood and booze. Decent.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Lots of bourbon in the aroma and flavor. Loved the light yeast flavor also lingering. There is a warm flavor to this beer. Aged Belgian mixed with a Blonde ho this was a great mix. One of the tasty brews for the night.

Amber colored brew with a nice sized offwhite head, good retention and lace. Nose is light chocolate and caramel notes, some light spicing and a touch toasty. Body is medium, sorta prickly carbonation with a light oilyness. Light roast flavors, bourbon flavors are well hidden :), medium sweet malts, caramel notes on top. An almost dry malty finish, lasting, caramel. Thanks to bitbucket for the well done hand bottled bomber. Much appreciated sir!

This is a review for the bourbon version of the Industrial Ho-Ho. Its been a tough week and just cant find the drive to enter it in as a new beer entirely. Appearance: Pours a clear, dark brownish-red body with a thin white head. Smell: Dark, chocolatey maltiness with an underlying fruitiness. The bourbon characteristics are fairly restrained, yielding only slight notes of vanilla and scorched wood. Taste: Sweet dark chocolate and some roasted grains that dries out rather quickly. Very, very light hints of vanilla, brown sugar, and wood. Mild bitterness along the way. Dark caramel picks up midway. Flash of dark fruits. Warm, chocolatey finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Mild carbonation. Warming alcohol presence. Drinkability: A fine bourbony (though light) winter release.

Another bottle shared by slob. The pour featured a big head, nice retention, full copper colored off-white head. Aroma was vegetal, caramel, bitter finish, some spicing and dry cocoa. Thee flavor was much the same with some roast and astringency too. Bourbon? Really? Where? Highly carbonated mouthfeel, lively. Overall, just didnt meld together well, a bit rough. Thanks for the opportunity, another fun run, Bert!

Handbottle from bitbucket - thanks! Reddish amber with a small head. Aroma is vegetal with some woody notes. Flavor has a unique spicy-vegetal-Brit hop-barrely thing going on thats not bad, but maybe a tad off. Mouthfeel is actually pretty nice - a unique one to try but I guess I dont understand why some beers get the Bourbon Barrel treatment. Nice to try.

Pours a nice mahogany brown color with a tan head. Aroma is caramel, herbs, toasted malt, and some bourbon. Flavor is malty, herbs, toasted malt, and a bitter roasty finish.
