Growler from Cumming Growler Shop. Pours a dark red with a white frothy head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, fruit esters. Nice alcohol warmth that isn’t overwhelming. Bourbon, vanilla, and dark fruits dominate taste. Hints of oak. A little too light bodied. Expected more of a full body. A bit of an oily texture. Subtle lingering bitterness on the finish with a slight resinous taste. nyindiansfan (465) - rochester, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle. Pouts darker brown had small head didn’t stick around much. Taste smell booze vanillia caramel wood smoke sweet dark fruits. Not too bitter which was nice. Just so thin got boring. Would like some texture. But good stuff middle road. Ret12 (454) - Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2013
I’m not a huge fan of bourbon flavored beer so this one wasn’t for me but it was still made well, slight burned malt and dark fruit flavor with a whiskey finish Bretteux (399) - Ste-Julie, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2013
Le liquide est d’un brun rougeâtre opaque et trouble.Le col s’estompe rapidement et laisse un anneau de mousse en plan.Au nez,des notes d’érables,d’alcool,de caramel et de bourbon.Au goût,c’est doux et sucré à l’entrée,suivi par un relent de bourbon qui est juste et pas trop intense avec une fin toute en chaleur que l’on sent bien descendre dans la gorge.J’ai bien aimé cette bière qui est sans grande éclat mais bien fait. novice101 (323) - - NOV 22, 2013
Not overly impressed by this beer, it starts out with a lot of vanilla and bourbon notes and then goes to a fairly hoppy but well balance barley wine. I was expecting a bit more, aged for a year had the 2012.

Deep ruby with no head. Malt sweetness with pomegranate and stone fruit apparent. Taste is malt, grassy hops, and a tart citrus. Very slightly oaky. Nice. ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2010
This poured a cloudy dark red with little foam. Aroma has a sweet caramel mixed in with some strong oak. Taste has some upfront sweet molasses with just a hint of burnt caramel. Aftertaste reveals some strong bourbon characteristics, not the least of which is the high alcohol in this brew. Definitely hot at this point. Rather enjoyable, and could definitely do with a bit of aging. bittermestupid (247) - Canton, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2011
