Courtesy jayMFg. Pours a copper color, with a small off white head. smells of bready yeast, dark malt, and some light bourbon, but not too overpowering. Theflavor was fairly fruity and sweet, alot of apples, malt, and the light bourbon as well. The body is a little bit thinner than I had hoped for. very sweet, almost too much, which took away from it a bit. seemed like it had not enough bourbon in it.

On tap at the brewery...Listed as a bourbon stong ale. Poured into a snifter, not much head. Dark red in color. Nice aroma of tobbaco, light touch of smoke. Taste is close to the nose, lots of malt, light tobbacco, smoke. Low carbonation level. Overall a solid sipping beer.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2008
Courtesy Santa (DocLock). Slightly cloudy brown color with a thin broken off-white head. Tannic oaky bourbon on the nose and not much else. The taste is severly bitterly tannic to the point of being unappealing. The sour twang keeps on through the finish and dominates the beer. Overboard with the bourbon, very astringent.

Bottle acquired via BA trade. Reminds me of Alpine Great. Flavor dominated by bourbon. Wonder what this beer would be like if it weren’t barrel-aged, because there’s really not a lot of beer qualities to it, only bourbon. Needs some age to cool down a little bit.

Copper colored with some head and lacing. Aroma is yeasty with a hint of sourness. Flavor is yeasty with a spicy sourness.
