Odd pale golden pour with a bit of white head. Doesn’t look at all like I thought it would. Nose is mostly bourbon with some vanilla. Smells better than is tastes - the barrel aging is nicely done but the base beer is lacking in flavor and consistency. Slightly sweet and woody. cooplander (543) - Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2012
golden orange color, aroma of bourbon, grain, bread, same flavors with some caramel, vanilla, wood, slight booze Palidor19 (3188) - Brandon, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Has a really strong flavor with a real bourbon taste. Their is very little hops but it has the quality of a imperial.

355ml brown bottle. Gold pour, clear. Decent looking white head with a nice fine bead to it. Good looking lacing. Nose has some sweet notes of caramel and vanilla. Taste has big vanilla, sweet caramel, some honey. Light woody/barrel in the finish, dries out a fair bit. Medium body, fine bubbled carbonation on the tongue. Was not expecting a golden and clear beer here, but overall this is a sweetish but drinkable strong ale with mild oaky barrel notes. A bit industrial, but drinkable. Jrwhitney6 (496) - - JAN 22, 2013
Pours copper into a snifter glass. Nose of vanilla and bourbon. Taste of bourbon and vanilla - not sure how others didn't think this had a bourbon taste - I found it quite strong. Ok, but if I want bourbon, that is what I would order.

On tap in Hudson, WI. Interesting to have something besides a stout barrel aged. I did it, although the bourbon aromas and taste is a bit too heavy for this one. fidemaster (322) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Was not bad but I expected more. It had a pleasant woodsy smell. Poured a nice deep color. It had a sharp alcohol taste. I did not pick up much flavor from the wood, or vanilla like I was expecting. It had a harsh finish. It could be I got a bad bottle. 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. Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2013
22oz draft 4/7/12 (The Town)-Pours an amberish brown with a small head. Aroma of bourbon, malt, and caramel. Taste of the same with some vanilla. This medium bodied brew was not bad as I was not sure what to expect. szinck1 (25) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 1, 2013
From the tap. Pours copper color, thin head, clear. Smells great - sweet bourbon, vanilla, wood. Barrel taste is pretty overwhelming. A bit of malty caramel as well, but pushed out by bourbon and some alcohol. One was good enough.
