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.

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.

12oz bottle pours a watery, opaque brown with zero head. Aroma is apples, brandy, wood pulp. Flavor is sweet, chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, slightly pulpy. Finish is a little hot and boozy.

At a tasting, thanks DSG, clear very dark brown colour, suprising aroma of fresh berries and plums with dark bread,werthers original candy, strong werthers flavour and dried fruits flavour with some alcohol showing through but not feeling to heavy. Nice but not too great.

Clownoisseur (431) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2015
2014 vintage. Pours a deep mahogany. Copper hues. A small tan head that fades to a ring. A bit of leg creeps up the glass. Aromas of roasted malt, wet oak, whiskey and dark fruit. Hot! Taste follows the nose with the barrel character being very prominent. Rich roasted barley, dark fruits and some earthiness carry the body, but ultimately, it is the wet oak bourbon that leaves the final impression. Good stuff, but a bit too barrel-forward at this time.

Beerman6686 (6505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2012
This poured a murky amber color with a small beige head. Aroma was a good bit of broubon, lots of caramel, and some burnt cake there too .. Flavor was very sweet,but not really cloying, almost watery actually, for the style, and lots of caramel nad toasted sweetness with some borubon heat. Just a bit disconjointed.

jercraigs (10093) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
2012-11-18. Murky dark brown body, headless. Big aroma, bourbon, light wood, alcohol and tangy rich malt character. Flavour is similar, lots of bourbon character, support sweet malt core, tangy fruity character lends itself to a fairly dry warming finish. Surprisingly bitter. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate is essentially still. Some carbonation would go a long way to make this lighter on the palate. Has nice highlights, but leaves the mouth tingly with alcohol and sits pretty heavily on the palate. Decent but lacks the nuance and sophistication to take it up a notch. Bottle, note on cap says 12/2011 via trade with flandersned

Tap @CBC2014
Dark copper-brown color, small beige head. Strong aroma of toffee and vanilla. Full-bodied. Lots of bourbon and vanilla. Alcohol, warming. Strong and a bit sticky. Quite sweet but nice dessert beer when you have it in small quantities.
