Bottle from Liz. Pours clear orange amber with a slight, transient white head. Aroma is mostly bourbon/vanilla with a hint of oak. Med body. It’s rather sweet, with hints of treacle. The oak is identifiable, and the bourbon/vanilla is clearly present. Yet it is not a strongly flavored ale. Heat is marginally detectable. Finishes on the non-dry side. It has a caramel sugar candy aspect. But the oak offsets that. Really interesting and pretty tasty. wlajwl (6750) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 15, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 Aroma is bourbon and malts. The flavor is fruit, oak, dark fruit/raisins/prunes, a hint of tea, tobacco and a mix of tartness and some alcohol in the finish. Itots (1) - - JUL 8, 2012 does not count
My current favorite beer. Very well balanced versus most other bourbon barrel beers. Nice on the palate, with a bourbon finish. Should be drank from a snifter for full effect and not overchilled. Many friends who do not consider themselves beer drinkers love this beer. Great change from the usual "heavier" bourbon barrel brews (stouts, porters).

12oz bottle from Andersons in Sylvania. Murky orange pour with little head. Aroma is big sweet sugar, vanilla and bourbon (shocking). Taste is caramel corn candy and butterscotch. Thin to medium palate. Not horrible, but not my thing. dmm0332 (3) - wheatland, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2012 does not count
Dark, delicious beer. Can taste the bourbon and finishes sweet, like caramel. Highly recommended.

Sampled at 2012 Indianapolis Brew Ha Ha. I liked this beer. A little different. Lots of bourbon flavor. A little spicy, smokey, with a strong alcohol finish. kaser (6220) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Crazy beer. Dark orange pour. Can definitely taste the Bourbon. But good. Carmel and sweet taste to top it off. Could drink one in a session but interesting good

Dark orange. Vanilla, whisky, caramel, toffee and yeasts make up the flavor. Really good on tap, even better in a sniffer! Best of all, it’s smooth and creamy! WyldcatGirl (1) - - JUN 30, 2012 does not count
One of my favorites! I love the hint of Bourbon you taste on the finish...everyone should at least give it a try!

Tap at the Gingerman. Pours pale golden brown. Nose of caramel and bourbon. Tastes of bourbon through and through. Also vanilla, caramel, oak, and a lot like cream soda. It sweet but not cloying. Interesting but one glass is enough
