Dark brown color with small tan head. Aroma has a ton of bourbon and caramel malts. Flavor has strong bourbon kick, with sweet, creamy malts, vanilla, and a bitter cocoa. Good overall but pretty expensive.

12oz bottle gifted by Pruf, thanks Chris. A good deal of alcohol on this beer but does not come of as spirit or barrel heat. A little thin on the palate. Sweet leafy earth candy otherwise. Low hop. Lots of lacing from the head.

fischersfriend (23) - Statesville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2017
Aroma, bourbon and more bourboan with a hint of oak. Appearance, flat cola no head cola color. Taste, bourbon, oak, vanilla, coconut. Not sure which is predominate as they all seem equal. Palate, flat cola smooth, sorty heavy. Overall. Did Barrel aging is a big part of the flavor component bourbon Oak vanilla coconut quite tasty especially if you like bourbon .However, in my opinion The Bourbon Barrel aging process although it adds flavor takes away from the style. You like Bourbon Barrel aged Brew they certainly nailed it that’s for a Scottish Wee Heavy not so much.

Outstanding beer. Aroma’s malty, toffee, caramel, burnt sugar, hint of peat. Flavor’s mainly sweet, but not too overly so, as it’s cut nicely by carbonation, peat and a bit of bitter. Excellent body and finish.

Z wczoraj. Karmelkowo-ziemista, nieco zbyt wodnista baza, trochę suszonych owoców, intensywny Bourbon i wanilia. Sympatyczne.

355ml bottle (thx, Yannick!) at Alex’s. Pours a hazy copper with a tan head. Aroma is is lots of bourbon, dark fruits, chocolate, boozy. Taste is the same. Very good. Maybe just because I do very like good bourbon barrel aged beers? :-)

Mahogany color, hazy, small head. The aroma is a bit malty, and boozy, bourbon, light tobacco. Moderate malt depth, sweet caramel, strong bourbon vanilla presence, and quite strong booze too. The low bitterness and high alcohol content mean this is not really balanced beer, but it’s a very good drink.

IMtheOptimator (1167) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - DEC 9, 2016
On tap at Millwrights in Simsbury. Poured a deep mahogany with a small off white head. Aroma of vanilla, molasses, a bit of bourbon. Taste is lightly sweet with fig, cherry, a bit of molasses, some bourbon finish. Very very balanced.. hides the alcohol. Refined. A triumph.
