BrianK (200) - Livingston, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2008 Sampled at Kuhnhenn. We told them we were from NJ and they pulled this out for us. Bourbon flavor was present but not overpowering and balanced out very well with the base brew. Have to get this one again. Rerate: didnt enjoy this beer anywhere near as much.

deyholla (11016) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2009
On tap at the brewpub during 09 Winter Solstice. 09 version. Poured a burnt sienna with a tint of yellow and no head. A huge aroma that was full of sweet grain notes and a strong note of bourbon. Flavor starts quite sweet with grainy and caramel notes, but bourbon and booze take over in the finish. Nice and thick on the tongue.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Draft. Notes of bourbon, caramel, dark dried fruits, vanilla, wood and salt. Deep reddish brown hue with an off-white head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is heavy sweet and heavy salty. Full bodied and oily soft. Overall a dissappointment. Too much bourbon and the saltiness was gross.
