Had on tap at the Grey Goose in Lexington, Ky. Poured into a snifter. Very attractive clear bourbon color. No head at all, but that’s likely due to the care the bartender took in pouring the beer. Some oaky vanilla on the nose, but it’s so very delicate. Not much else going on in the aroma. Mouthfeel is slick, wet, and a little oily. The flavor consists of mild oak, vanilla, and bourbon. It falls a little flat. But, otherwise a decent beer. DWestrick (774) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 28, 2013
bottle. not a fan of the strong ale. i suppose you can call it unique in it’s taste, but not easy to enjoy. tbopslt (354) - New York, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Poured from a bottle. Dark clear pour, slight head. Very strong oak aroma with a healthy scent of bourbon. Flavor is coffee with a hint of vanilla. Not bad but not my favorite in the class. RuneStumo (2691) - Haugesund, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2013
16.03.2013. On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Golden colour with white head. Aroma of smooth vanilla bourbon with a soft malty tone. Very nice and soft aroma. Flavours is more vanilla and pretty obvious bourbon notes. Medium body and moderate good bitterness. DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle. Brassy golden colour with a brief white head. Aroma is full of oaky vanilla, very buttery, with just a hint of sour wood. The palate is sweet, and is dominated by rye whiskey flavours with an anemic grainy pale malt structure lending poor support. This was much like Innis & Gunn Original, but harsher and with even less malt support if that’s possible. Not my thing at all.

Light brassy color, with nice, off-white cover. Feint bourbon wood aromatics, mixed with a swish of maple syrup and vanilla.Whiskey flavors push through onto the palate, albeit the body is on the thin side. A bit like a depth charge of a pale lager beer and a shot of whiskey. Coconut finish. shadey (2142) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Had this on tap at the East Nashville Beer Festival. Golden orange color. Aromas of vanilla and bourbon and honey. Sweet and alcoholic finish. Deu (948) - Nantes, FRANCE - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle at a beer fest in Dublin. Deep golden to amber colour, moderate creamy head. Distinct aroma of bourbon, oak and vanilla. Very nice. I recommend Christpuncher (3188) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2013
This is a very good bourbon stout. Not too heavy on whiskey and just a hint if coffee Has a nice bite and is very strong

Medium orange pour with whtie head into a 9 oz snifter. Vanilla and caramel in the nose. Creamy vanilla and toffee taste. Not tasting the barrel but pretty good.
