Butters (4176) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Sampled at the Richmond Eleventh. Hazy copper pour with ring of tan head. Nose of bourbon, but flavor is more oakey and vanilla. Cant really pick out much for the original style, but I do detect some brown notes. Moderate carbonation. Certainly not the worst thing I’ve had from these guys.

(Sample Date: 4/17/2010 Source:Other) Bourbon is the aroma with some sweet caramel to back. Clear medium copper brown with little head. Flavor is a nice woody bourbon with a citrusy sour twang behind. Alcohol warming is perceptible in the finish. Very nice. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Clear medium brown. Not really any head. Aroma really is just straight up bourbon. Flavor is surprisingly of rather rich malt, not overwhelmed at all by bourbon. Finish moves nicely into integrated bourbon and oak notes. Really ver balanced and well done. GMCC2181 (1613) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 12, 2010
Bottle from TBS.. Shared at SL...Pours a light orange/red color. Small head... Aroma of some vanilla and alcohol. Taste is a sweet vanilla, oaky, strong malty ale. Not bad, just not my favorite style. The texture isnt thick at all...suprisely light. Thanks matt for the brew Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours an amber body with a brune off white head. Malty nutty and chewy, light roast and vanilla. Obvious bourbon, light woody, a rye and whiskey like modest warming. A decent strong ale.

On bottle at the 2010 installment of Stogies and Stouts pouring deep copper – sort of brown-ish with thin tan head. The aroma is chocolaty and then picks up large sums of whiskey-ness as well as a light sense of wood. The taste is sweet and kind of bourbony with a little bit of wood along the edges. It then picks up notes of sweet malts sweetness, a thin layer of molasses and then more and more sweet and mildly harsh bourbon booze into the finish.
