Lubiere (13548) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2007
A dark golden ale with a thin off white head. Aroma of ammonia and light rotten vegetables. In mouth, a sweet maple malt with peaty notes, solvents, fusel alcohol. Not a winner this time. Probably infected. Tasted at "Montral YeHA! Party 2006" . Dec. 16 2006.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2007
Picked up a bottle at Cellars LexLarp, St Paul, MN. Shared with friends on weekend. Pours a dark amber with an off white head. Aroma is sweet with hints of vanilla, candy sugar, and port. Taste has the bourbon nutty flavor with toffee, and barley malt. Finish is dry with a hint of vanilla.

Stine (1774) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2007
Chestnut brown color. Mildly sweet, robust aroma. Earthy and sort of slick. Tastes like brown sugar cake soaked in bourbon, rolled in the dirt. The peat flavor imbued by the oak doesnt mesh well, surprisingly, and taken alone its just a mite too sweet i think.

badgerben (5044) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Murky brown color with a thin head. Nice caramel aroma with maybe just a bit of smoke. Oh my god, the taste... all of the aroma plus just a great balance of the usual bourbon aged flavors: bourbon, vanilla and oak. I can not emphasize enough Sprechers brilliance at aging beer in bourbon barrels. Its obviously been in a bourbon barrel, but its not like Im drinking a pint of bourbon. Out-freaking-standing.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Dark amber color with minimal white head. Bourbon nose with a sweet earthy tinge to it. Dry bourbon flavor thats well balanced and not overwhelming.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Pour is brown with a thin tan head...lightly oaky and smokey sweet nose...flavor is lightly sweet and smokey, but seemed almost like it didnt taste like anything...

ABUSEDGOAT (2693) - California, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Black pour, moderate to small head, average lacing and retention. Aroma doesnt offer much, light amounts of darker malts and fruits with bourbon. No real smokey character. Flavor brings much more bourbon and soft vanilla. Very low bitterness, medium to light body. Sweet finish with light acidity. Enjoyable but not that true to the style.

brew4all (103) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Aroma was strong with Bourbon and dark fruits. Poured a dark cloudy copper with a thin head. The flavor was smooth with hints of Oak and fruit. Finished with a very nice hint of the whiskey barrels and some dryness as well. Very solid brew

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Draft @ HDG. Rich red and copper color with a thick head. Aroma is bourbon up front with some peat and smoked malts backing it up. Flavor is close to that with the alcohol masked behind all of those big flavors. A bit on the sticky side but overall a nice take on the style.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2007
UPDATED: APR 30, 2007 Smell of bourbon, light malt, caramel, cream cheese frosting and some nuts. Taste of caramel, light bourbon, toffee, frosting, sugar and a touch of oak. I was expecting a lot more bourbon flavor but it was still good.
