Whiskey and brow sugar aroma. 22oz bottle at Lakehouse. Very sweet. Vanilla and coconut with cocoa ending. Not bad. Very good TimE (6130) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 29, 2015
Medium brown color. Nice soft bourbon and oaky nose, mildly sweet malty. The mouth is medium full body. Modestly sweet with the bourbon is subdued. Very mellow and rounded with alcohol well hidden. Very pleasant beer. bhensonb (15758) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Bomber from Special Brews in Lynwood, WA. Pours dark brown with a creamy/foamy tan head. Mild bourbon and a little chocolate aroma through a lot of head. Med body or so. Flavor is bourbon, wood, chocolate. Decent drink. Glad I didn’t keep it til summer. Finishes somewhat astringent with chocolate here and there. Bourbon too.

UKH on tap at CBB in Osaka - pricey at 1200 yen! Schooner Exact Hoppy Woodsman pours a deep mahogany brown with a creamy tan head. It has a sweet woodsy oak aroma. The taste is great, a bit smokey, sweet whiskey, oak, vanilla and some coffee+dark chocolate. Smooth med-full body. Great, it’s well balanced and smooth drinking. mcberko (18977) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at Schooner Exact, pours a deep dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out loads of whiskey barrels upfront, along with light caramel, and alcohol. Flavour is heavy on the whiskey as well, with huge boozy alcoholic woody notes, and more whiskey. Quite overwhelming, though somehow still drinkable, albeit slowly. Dominated by the whiskey - decent.

Draft - Boozy bourbon notes, apple and oak. Cloudy brown with a decent beige head. Boozy bourbon, some anise and lots of booze in the finish. A bit too hot for me. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is a little boozy with a lot of wood and bourbon to it, and little from the base beer. Taste is a bit sweet with caramel and a fair amount of bourbon. Ok. zoucrew102 (2104) - - JAN 23, 2015
Bomber brought back from Portland, OR. Rich chocolate malt aroma with good bourbon, oak, and vanilla notes. Pours dark brown with a large light brown head with good retention and decent lacing. Starts smooth with good chocolate as well as some caramel flavors. Finishes mostly smooth with just a bit of dryness with the bourbon, oak and vanilla coming through nicely. Good brew that hides the alcohol well while being quite warming. tcon25 (941) - Duvall, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Draft pour at Elliott Bay. Dark brown pour, slight Bourbon aroma, smooth taste. slowrunner77 (12844) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2014
A very well balanced ale. Rich and luxurious, equal parts dark and chocolatey, roasted, and vanilla Oaked goodness. Hops still shine through the barrels a bit. An excellent brew."
