2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted 0n 4/11/13 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle sent to me in the Easter Bunny BIF. I am very excited to finally try something from this brewery. Pours clear dark amber with a thin off-white head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is caramel malt with some vanilla oak, but it seems to have begun souring. The flavor is much more sour up front with all of the caramel malt and barrel flavors taking a back seat. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long sour and caramel malt finish. I was very excited to try this beer, but unfortunately, I believe it infected.
From a bomber into a snifter. Big tan head that lingers, semi clear reddish brown body. Nose is whisky, apple cider caramel malt, hint of cherries. Medium body, sweet, alcohol burn. Finish has nutty woody flavors. A bit too boozy, but nice. hayduke (5616) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 10, 2016
Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass was amber with a white head. Nose of citrus and floral hops and a blast of whiskey. Medium body. Flavor is bit on the whiskey and the finish is boozy and bitter. Damn good. SG111 (1980) - New York, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Pours deep golden. Small white head. Aroma is bourbon, mild booze, amber malt notes, caramel. Flavor is scotch, toffee, caramel. Really good. Csmcbndt (4) - Howell, Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2015 does not count
Great amber - medium body, barrel aged. If you’re not a fan of whiskey don’t let this scare you off - the taste is not overbearing or astringent. patrick767 (4115) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 19, 2015
tap at the brewery - Smells of oak and to my surprise kind of tart, but it doesn’t taste tart. Whiskey dominates the sweet, malty flavor and there’s a hint of vanilla. It’s medium to full bodied and very good.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Sample at GABF 10/03/2014, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Hazy amber color with a medium thin off-white head. Spotty lacing. Malt, caramel and slight hops in the nose. Medium body with flavors of grainy malt, caramel and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
