Burnt orange in color with a small head...thinner than expected for the style. Aromas of cherry, vanilla, oak, bourbon. Strong sipper that coats going down. Flavors are a bit rough around the edges but otherwise pretty good. The flavor profile is good overall. jbruner (5463) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Pours a hazy golden brown from the bomber worth minimal head or lace. Aroma and taste are oxidized heavily, burnt orange, burnt malt, decent but old. djd07 (16289) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle at the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange with thick frothy beige head that lasts. The aroma is funk, yeast, wood. Medium body, spice, bourbon, wood, funk, yeast, nice sweetness, very nice. PartyFowle (954) - - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Tarnished copper in hue and murky -- opaque in the middle giving up golden highlights at the edges. A thin, silky tan head. Buttery, oaky nose: cooking butter, sweet cherry, brandy, a splash of vanilla, toffee. Sweet, rich and complex, the nose goes back and forth between barrel- forward and fruit-forward. The flavor is an earth, alcohol, dark fruit blend. Woody, with smooth vanilla and a touch of grass up front. The swallow delivers plum, fig and cherry. A bit boozy.Fairly thick, medium-full body. Alcohol is a beefcake, bringing numbness and heat in the nose. I like that I can really taste the bourbon, which is missing from many BA quads. Oak, spirit and fruity beer notes blend wonderfully. Turn down the heat and we have a winner. hockey9930 (321) - - APR 3, 2015
Looks like muddy water. Smells of dark fruits like raisins and prunes. Very strong alcohol smell. Upfront raisens and prunes dominant the taste. After that you get hit with a strong taste of bourbon. Has a lingering alcohol aftertaste.

The bourbon barrel aging comes through in the vanilla, but the star of the show is the deep malty base in this viscous beer. Picked up the bottle on a trip through Ft. Collins in 2013. Travlr (26417) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle at Birch & Barley. Clear golden ruby color. Aroma of rich vanilla and butterscotch. Taste is dry chocolate covered caramel and vanilla. Very nice. jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from SirADNielsen, thanks Aaron! Pours a cloudy brownish orange color with minimal head. Bourbon, vanilla, slight fruity aromas. Solid, but not spectacular barrel aged beer. maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
On tap. Cloudy amber orange pour with small off white head. Aroma of oranges, apricots, caramel, vanilla and bourbon. Taste of dark fruits, caramel, vanilla, oak and bourbon. Full bodied, lower carbonation, long bourbon finish.
