11/12/17. 750mL bottle thanks to Carl. LM trying to capitalize on the popularity of barrel aging with a beer that doesn't really hold up to it. Strong barrel aroma, whiskey, hint of caramel maltiness. Sweet flavor, caramel, malty, hints at nutty, barrel overwhelms. Base beer can't handle it. Reminds of that terrible Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale. rdixon77 (3106) - Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2017
Thanks carl! Similar to Kentucky barrel ale. Thin body that didn't quite handle bourbon aging. Still has. I've brown ale maltiness with some vanilla and oak presence, not bad. edgallow (4618) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 27, 2017
Pours brown with a off white head. Aroma of pecans and bourbon. Taste is bourbon and nuts djd07 (16289) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2016
On tap at Avenue Pub. Pours a dark amber with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is pecans, oak, vanilla, bourbon. Medium body, vanilla, pecan, wood, bourbon, really enjoyed this. jhp40219 (449) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 26, 2014
On tap at BoomBozz Pizza and Taphouse - Highlands. Pours a honey color light tan. A bit hazy with no real head. Aroma of bourbon, honey, caramel, and a bit of pecan. Taste is sweeter than expected. Bourbon, caramel, honey, candy like sweetness, with a bit of vanilla, pecan, and a sweet fruitiness. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, sticky texture, somewhat bitter, tasty but quick finish of malts and caramel. Overall very good. The bourbon barrel aging changes up the taste from the Southern Pecan quite a bit. But in my opinion, this would have benefited from aging longer in the bourbon barrel.

draft pint poured a cloudy brownish color with a white head...the aroma up front was of bourbon and some vanilla or caramel tones. the flavor was kind of strange flavor of bourbon but very mild like it hadn’t been aged long enough. some vanilla tones under the bourbon and yet couldn’t taste any of the pecan or other flavors. just not a fan.

Draft at the source, part of the $10 tour. Murky brown color, fluffy tan head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon. Taste is sweet, smooth vanilla brownies. Tasty. Itzjerm (3172) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - OCT 8, 2013
There are a lot better barrel aged beers out there. No head. Nice mouthfeel but still watery brown ale with a slight barrel taste. Barrel and jack is very very subtle for abv not impressed. Average SudsMcDuff (8538) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2013
This stuff is just madness … brown, solid foam ... Rich malts and a smooth rounded chocolatey bourbon .. . A brilliant beer .. . . 8am is more than enough time for lots if beer! sloshgator (770) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Lazy Magnolia Southern Gentleman is a nicely done bourbon barrel-aged brown ale. Light aroma of fine bourbon. Pour is dark brown bit with a thin head and body. Taste has notes of fine bourbon and oak with no alcohol bite or an overwhelming quality. Finish is a little flat with a slight maltiness. Southern Gentleman pulls off the bourbon barrel aging without going over the top with it.
