Pour is cloudy dark burgundy brown with a small amount of light tan head. Lots of bourbon even from a distance. The nose is huge, tons of bourbon, dark malts, caramel, brown sugar, dried figs. Taste is also huge, lots of malt sweetness, not really sugary. Tons of dark fruits with hints of apple, lots of brown sugar and caramel. Bourbon plays in nicely, less prevalent than the nose would have had me believe. Very full body, a hint sugary, soft palate but gets a touch grainy. olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2014
2013 orange wax bottle pours a dark hazy brown with an off white head. Bourbon and oak really take over the taste of the base beer. Sweet malts vanilla and dark fruit taste. AdamChandler (5207) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Oaky reddish brown. Very minor head. Lots of pear and apple nose. Vanilla with pineapple and a minor oak presence. Caramel as well. Very nice balance. Really coats the tongue. Very nice bitterness. Lots of oak, apples and what I imagine cedar would taste like. I get some tree fruit and walnuts at the finish. bytemesis (9510) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle thanks to rxeight - 2013 vintage, orange wax -- shared with AJ and friend. Pours cloudy hazel with a small tan head and decent lacing. Aroma is quite strong, lots of dark sugars, toffee, molasses, date, raisin, bourbon. Flavor is medium sweet and only lightly bitter -- surprisingly different than the non BA version -- a fair amount of wood tannins as well. Medium body, kinda tongue coating. Really good, and a world different from the base beer. drfabulous (8825) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - FEB 22, 2014
From the 22 ounce bottle. Nice nose. Some bourbon throughout. Sweet. Brown sugar in finish and overall taste. Nice.

Bottle shared by The Hoff @ Armin’s - slightly hazy light brown pour. Nose is slightly malty and highly bourbon. Taste is pretty harsh - strong bourbon oak and hops.
