Draft. A dark brown beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of malt both sweet and roasted combined with notes of bourbon. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, roasted malt, bourbon, and wood, as well as a light note of vanilla, leading to a roasted finish. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2013

A: The beer pours a very dark brown color with a small, soapy, off-white head.
S: Bourbon comes through on the nose along with a somewhat mild coffee aroma (despite being a coffee beer). As expected, a bit of vanilla and a strange spice note of cinnamon, but it goes nicely with the bit of oatmeal cookie and toffee aromas.
T: On the palate, the vanilla stands out quite nicely with the bourbon flavor being a bit less pronounced. Some mild fruit notes and a fairly minimal coffee flavor. A light oatmeal sort of flavor along with molasses, toffee, and a mild spice.
M: Unfortunately, the body is a bit light/thin. The carbonation is on the lower end of medium.
O: Good aromas and decent flavors, but sort of lacking in terms of mouthfeel.

Draft. This base beer is awful. But wow they packed a lot of bourbon barrel flavor into it and it has helped it immensely. Vanilla and espresso meld nicely. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2009
