Tap at the source. Aroma is sweet and strong booze. Tastes like burnt sugar and caramel sweetness. rxeight (3157) - Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Dark brown, with a hint of ruby. Aroma of sweet soft bourbon. Taste of bourbon, vanilla and toffee. Mdeium to heavy thickness. Tasty stuff. drewaha (129) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2012
On tap at bodega. Pours a murky brown with medium head. Smells sweet with oak and bourbon. A little smoke. Tastes more b ourbony than I expected and kind of makes the scotch ale flavor. Palate is super creamy. Still tasty. RoyalTenenbaum (6) - USA - NOV 15, 2012 does not count
Delicious aroma. Vanilla and bourbon present at first sip. Nice coloration.

From bottle in a snifter. Pours with a decent cream head and disperses to the sides of the glass quickly. Dark brown and crimson hues that is nearly opaque, with a bit of red light coming through. Sweet caramel on the nose with good hits of scotch. Lots of malt character immediately, followed by a smooth whiskey aftertaste that lasts. Can’t wait to put one of these in the cellar and wait a few years. Also very good on tap, a pit more mellowed out of the whiskey.

color is that of burnt caramel. at firrst smell you get those bourbon barrels with tanned leather. hops is very resiny and woody. overall this is a very delicious beer. I will be back for more dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 14, 2012
Side by side with Dirty Bastard. Deep reddish brown, maybe a little thicker than DB. Aroma is quite different - a lot of bourbon, oak, hot alcohol vapour in addition to a light smokiness. Taste is lots of smoky malt, some sweet caramel and a ton of oaky bourbon. This is a fantastic sipping beer. Lives up to the hype! GoblinLunch (2) - - NOV 13, 2012 does not count
Easily the best Old Ale (I’m calling it old ale because it doesn’t taste very wee heavy at all) I’ve ever had, besides Curmudgeon’s Better Half. Just wonder bourbon scent, caramel, syrup . . . bourbon in beer form. Fills the palate with warmth and sweetness. Earthy a tad. Excellent!! Martinus (4642) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2012
Clear red colour, brown hue, slight white head. Aroma of caramel, malts, honey, bourbon and wood. Light dark red fruits. Sweet malty flavour, caramel and honey. Long finish, caramel, light bitter, roasted malts, wood.

Take one of my favorite beers and throw it in a bourbon barrel...can’t beat that. As this warmed up a bit, the taste just got better and better. Caramel malt mixes with some brown sugar and bourbon made this taste pretty amazing. I can’t wait to see how this ages.
