3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Clear brown with a small off-white head. Sweet, alcohol aroma. I do sense a little of the bourbon. Sweet flavor with nuts, smooth feel and a prolonged pleasant aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured this ale from the bottle into a standard pint glass. The pour produced a hazy, dark amber body topped with a thick head of beige foam, with good retention. A nutty, sweet aroma, which promises the sweet maltiness of the brew itself. A full mouthfeel with a slight metallic finish (though it could be hops asserting itself at the end.), with some alcohol notes at the end. I’m finding the hops to be a little more assertive than what I would like, especially since the malts in the front give the promise of sweetness. I think there is some complexity here, where you have a bait and switch going on with the malts and hops, promising a sweeter profile then popping with with the bitterness of the hops.
Also, having a portion aged in barrels gives me the impression that I should be getting some notes of wood in the aroma, which I really didn’t pick up (perhaps it was too cold).

A very good choice for the bourbon aged lovers at a price that won’t drain your wallet.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a brown color with a caramel malt aroma. Taste is caramel, with a light malt flavor. Easy drinking with little complexity. The aged bourbon is missing.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Shared at the StlBrews meeting from 12oz can into a nonic half-pint glass. It poured a clear reddish brown colour with persistent beige foam and lace. Extremely malty sticky-sweet, toasty and nutty, not nearly attenuated enough yet somehow still way too boozy. Really unpleasant hot fusel alcohols, plus some funky sourness. Wood, vanilla, bourbon. Lactose sugar, maybe? No matter, I can’t believe this was how they meant it turn out.

Bottled. Nice brown, rich pour. White head. Body is cloudy, featuring a little caramel in the nose, but not that sweet. Flavor is a mild toasted caramel malt.

Pours a clear but dark brown color with khaki colored head. Roasted malts, oak, vanilla, some light whiskey notes, and a little caramel on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium to full bodied. Finishes with roast and caramel woody sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The pour is a dark amber with a thick head. The aroma is more whisky than bourbon imo. The taste is a good mix of booze and that of a brown ale.
