It pours tawny brown with an off white head. It has a full smooth body with light carbonation. The taste has caramel, rich toffee, light oak and pleasing warming alcohol. Really will made. djd07 (14369) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2016

Sampled at GABF 2015 in Denver. Finishing up my tasting notes from that event almost year late. In the tasting glass was amber with an off white head. Nose of caramel malts, vanilla, and floral hops. Medium plus body. Flavor is big on bourbon and the vanilla and the finish is citrus and floral. Excellent.

Bottle from b3shine (thanks Beau!), shared at RBAG. Golden brown, big bourbon nose. Soft bourbon vanilla-caramel, light floral notes (surprising), very smooth and drinkable. I found myself returning to this between ratings-- just so balanced and tasty! dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 12, 2016

Can - Sweet toffee and bourbon notes with a hint of caramel apple. Deep dark copper brown with a beige head. Sweet toffee, caramel and some nutty notes with hints of vanilla and the courbon. Very sweet, but nicely balanced and rich. arminjewell (9585) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Pour out of 16 oz aluminum bottle, thanks Beau! Clear dark red pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of spice, oak, slight spice. Taste was a mix of grain, bread, caramel, toffee, slight vanilla into some slight spice, finishing slightly watery, slightly sweet. phaleslu (10104) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2016
16 oz. capped aluminum bottle from shrubber85- thanks again, Roger! 2015 vintage. Pours a deep but not opaque slightly browned mahogany with a small off-white head that fizzles into a ring and a film relatively quickly. Aroma of oak, toffee, chocolate, brown sugar, earth, vanilla, molasses, dried dark fruits, tobacco, and tea - doesn’t really pop like you’d expect, but has layers of unexpected depth. The flavor, though, doesn’t deliver much - toffee, cola, wood, light bourbon warmth throughout, earth, tea, and dark fruits. Medium-plus bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. It’s good and smooth and nice to sip, but it’s too restrained to be truly memorable.
