You could smell the Barrel and Bourbon a bit once poured. For me, it had a flavor of vanilla. This would have been better had it let it aged a bit and mellowed out. I felt that the bourbon had a bit of a strong aroma and flavor which I love, but it wasn’t balanced with the Ale. If you’re able to find one, I’d say cellar it and try it in a year or two....I bet it’ll be fantastic!

Bottle courtesy of my friend Noel. Amber pour with a short tan head. Aroma is strong vanilla, caramel, bourbon notes and sweet malt. Taste is big vanilla, caramel, toasted coconut, sweet malt and booze. Body is medium with a soft bubbly carbonation. Lots of stickiness and boozy warmth. Finishes with more vanilla, caramel, booze, light coconut and toasted dark bread.

Pour is a tan with a large tan head. Aroma is of the barrel with some notes of vanilla and bourbon. Flavor is bourbon, a big dose of caramel malt and some whiskey burn of alcohol. Finish leaves some of that burning on the tongue with some almost spicy rye and a warming in the chest. This is all about this bourbon barrel it was aged in. Very solidly done as the bourbon is there but you still get a nice sweet and heavy malt.

Draft. Pours hazed deep amber with an off white head. Rich sweet malts, pecan, moderate boozy notes, caramel chews, and rum cake-like sweetness. Rich; very rich and sweet, but still maintains a decent level of drinkability. Good stuff.

Bottle shared with Jcwattsrugger. Pours dark amber with white head. Nose and taste of bourbon, oak, vanilla, orange candy and caramel toffee. Medium body. Barrel treatment really works on this beer.

Very small, lacy head. The malt allows for the most delicious caramel aroma. Definitely heavily boozy at times, but ultimately a smooth, slightly sweet, easy to drink American ale. Very good.

On tap at the brewery. It pours a dark red color with almost no head. The aroma is cherry, wood and bourbon. The flavor has vanilla, wood and cherry in that order. Slick mouthfeel with a spicy woody finish. Tasty.
