Thanks to Scott from the Charleston Beer Exchange. pours a bright amber. absolutely incredible nose. lots and lots of bourbon, which is great because pappy is one of my favorites. hints of honey, mahogany, and some subtle piny hop aromas. the flavor is surprising mellow, exceedingly smooth and very good. the sweet bourbon aspect is balanced very well with the bitter hops, which take a back seat. glad to have had this one. haukur (2124) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - SEP 9, 2012
Delightful bourbon smell. A bit sweet but well balanced with the hops. Bitter bourbon finish, excellent redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Growler shared by BeerExchange! Thanks Scott! Vanilla and bourbon on the nose with hints of citrus with strong oak notes. Pours a pale amber with a thin white head. Strong bourbon character with vanilla and woody notes, with strong hop bitterness, earthy with hints of citrus. Great barrel aged beer! rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Tap. Light amber with minimal head. Wow, barrel aging really helps this out. Very woody. Slight alcohol warmth. Hop bitterness is mellowed. zizzybalubba (1891) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2009
On tap at the Raleigh WBF. The barrel aging for this makes it a completely different beer. Almost no hop character at all. However, the wood does give this beer a totally unique character without tasting like booze (not sure if this is aged in whiskey barrels but if it is it does not pick up the whiskey flavor). A very good beer but not as impressive as the regular Seeing Double. Very glad I was able to try this one.

Light amber, little head. Big bourbon nose with a hint of banana. Flavor lacks a bit, hint of hops, light barrel character. Mouthfeel is good. emacgee (4711) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2009
WBF sample. Pours a hazy golden amber with a one finger light yellow head. The nose is bourbony, sweet, alcohol, hops are definitely subdued on this one. Barrel character takes over. Flavor is bourbon, vanilla, oak, warm alcohol, some hop bitterness. DIPA definitely took a back seat to this one. 00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2009
This was a pretty good beer, but the DIPA characteristics were almost completely lost with the bourbon. The bourbon, however was great, but certainly dominated this beer. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Draft. Orange with no head. Lacing is present. Not much aroma. Bourbon is a nice pairing with the bitterness. Still finishes very bitter. Yummy
