Sample pour at a festival. Pours mostly clear amber/copper with creamy off-white head. Aroma is bready malts, vanilla, oak, dates, and floral notes. Flavor is dry malts, caramel, light vanilla, some dark fruit notes, and light hops; dry oak finish. Medium body and carbonation. snoworsummer (6076) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Draft at Beer and Bacon. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly beige head. tastes like strong booze, cherries, grains. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet grains and musky dried cherries. Arayaga2 (2221) - portland, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2014
Reddish brown with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet, with oxidized orange and caramel. There’s a lot of bourbon up front in the taste, with odd, boozy fruitcake into the aftertaste. Not sure what all the hype is about, or the $18/22oz pricetag ($10 on sale) Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 4, 2014
Bottle @ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Pours brown with a very slight head. Whisky and fruit on the nose same type of thing going on taste wise but more whisky and less fruit, this tasted like it was rough cheap bourbon barrels and did it no favours McNeillR (2329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Amberish and existent white head. Bright bourbon, plastically/tinsel grainy citrus nose. Chewy Bourbon is consistent and creamy but rocks the boat a little throughout, engulfing a decent woody malt middle and a dry and logical finish. Trafficked bourbon astringency doesn’t decant any enjoyment from what was probably a well put together brew.

Bottle at the RBWG 2014 grand tasting, thanks! Pours a clear amber orange with a tan head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains/bread with some bourbon and a hint of light fruits underlying. Flavor has more sweet grains and bourbon with some bread and light fruits underlying.
