Draft shared at the Rez, VT during the BP party. Pours a deep amber red body with thin off white lace. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of sweet caramel, sugar, vanilla and faint wood character. It's okay for what it is - it's just tough to get behind an 11% American Strong these days...

Pouring at the RBSG17 Grand Tasting. Pours a deep brown with a thin tan head. Big and musky on the nose, soft funk. Medium bodied, soft acid, big berries and cherry. Warm vanilla and wood, tangy.

douglas88 (9698) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 3, 2017
Bottle at RBSG. Pours a reddish hue with a medium white head. A big fruity bourbon nose. Big fruity berry flavor, caramel, toffee, light bourbon, cocoa. A bit hot. Very good, awesome beer.

phaleslu (10750) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2017
375 ml bottle from the brewery. Pours a deep, dark, hazy chestnut brown with a small tan head that settles into a thin ring. Notes of dark and dried fruits (figs, black cherries, dates), vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, oak, bourbon, mild roasted and toasted malts, and cola. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, smooth, slightly muddled mouthfeel that coats the palate upon finishing. This one drinks slightly older than it is, so I would not age it if you still have one. Starting to get a little flat and fruity. But still good overall.

Bottle at RBSG. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is heavily sweet with bourbon barrel notes and dark pitted fruits. Pretty sweet taste and a little boozy, dark fruits and lots of barrel influence.

4.1
Dogbrick (14009) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2017
Sample at the brewpub during the ’Appervation Bottle Release’ on 05/24/2017. The beer pours a clear dark reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Bourbon, malt and dark fruit in the nose. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, caramel malt, dark fruit and a bit of earthy hops. The finish is oaky with a bourbon and malt aftertaste. Good beer all around.

4.2
mikem409 (2029) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2017
Bottle from Belmont. Deep red color with tan head. Big bourbon and oak aroma. Taste follows, very bourbon forward, vanilla, wood. This taste like a BA Barley Wine.
