Bottle… Clear, dark, burnt orange ale with a small, beige head. The decadent aroma is an uncomplicated swirl of gooey caramel, sticky vanilla beans and Kentucky bourbon. Full-bodied and velvety with reserved carbonation. Nicely balanced despite all the malt; the flavor is an indulgent blend of buttery praline, vanilla, bourbon and gobs of caramel. Even warm, the caramel shines brightly, but without the normal, accompanying sweetness. Warming, vanilla and bourbon finish. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2010
(12oz bottle via trade with jyoungsbcp) clear brown, rich color, viscous body is apparent with a ring of off-white bubbles. Nose of caramel, maple, chocolate, syrup, wood, bourbon, and alcohol. Smells complex and delicious. Taste of maple, bourbon, sweet chocolate, wood, this has tons of flavor. Very alcoholic spicy finish. Nicely done!

Bottle at Peter’s RBSG. Dark tan pour with off-white head. Aroma is very strong of bourbon (a bit excessive), caramel, and sugar cane. Flavor is predominantly caramel backed by bourbon. The mouthfeel is really nice; a slightly sharp bite from the bourbon ends with smooth, creamy caramel. It feels like a lot of high quality ingredients are in this that I can’t decipher. I wish the bourbon didn’t get so much in the way of all that. tomthompson89 (1983) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2010

Bottle at Peter’s 2nd annual spring gathering thanks to jcwattsruger. Pours a clear brown with a small beige head. Gorgeous bourbon, light citrus hops behind it. One of the nicest bourbon aromas I’ve ever encountered on a bourbon aged beer. The bourbon is present and prominent, but doesn’t overpower or detract from everything else in here. Some sweet dark fruit. Gorgeous. Smooth and subtle, very tasty, a light warming alcohol on the finish. Excellent. MrChopin (4305) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2010

Nut brown with a light beige head. Clay/earthy scent, some alcohol and chocolate as well. Flavor of fudge, light anise, some roast and caramel malts, and alcohol. Balanced throughout, creamy and rich with a lingering fudge finish. The dessert sweetness is front and center but the balance and varied elements keep this drinkable.
