2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at brewery during GABF 2009, listed as Reilley’s Oak Whiskey Red.
Pours an aroma of weak, watered-down bottom-shelf whiskey with a body of deep amber. Flavor is raisin vomit (yes, raisins can puke) and bottom-shelf whiskey. Watery mouthfeel. Hopefully, Reilley killed himself.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured brown with reddish tint and a huge head. Aroma was bourbon with malty and grainy notes. The flavor was woody, oxidized, dry and slightly malty with warming alcohol. The flavors are enhanced as the beer warms. The palate is very smooth and fizzy. Overall this is a decent beer with a good presentation and the mellow flavors really intensify as the beer warms.

Bottle, your fucking kidding me this won GOLD in GABF07 Barrel Aged beers! What the fuck was the competition? Oak aged woodchuck?!?! Pours an amber red body with a tan head. A thin watery oak vanilla and light bourbon body with over ripe fruit and a bitter finish. Eh its okay but undeserving of its accomplishments...

12oz bottle Label says Reilly’s Oak Whiskey Red 5/27/09 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Taste of oak, vanilla, little sourness, and slight bourbon. This light bodied brew is not bad wish it had more bourbon and it is not very well balanced. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of santa. Pours a nice reddish brown with a small off white head. Aroma is caramel, wood, malt and a touch of whiskey. Flavor is caramel, wood, a light sourness, a touch of whiskey. Fairly light bodied for a barrel aged ale but the sourness and whiskey gives it a nice tang. Different than I expected but still quite enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color is a deep amber with a slight haze and a very fine sediment. Carbonation is good producing a small tight head. Aroma of coffee and oak with a hint of whiskey in the back. Taste is rich and caramely. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a rich creamy feel. Finish come in sweet with caramel and vanilla then a light hop flavor and mild bitterness. After taste has a slight oak/whiskey flavor rolling across. This is a tasty brew with a full well rounded flavor.
