Pours a beautiful clear chestnut with a fairly thick and rather fine-bubbled light tan head. Malty aroma has firm notes of bourbon-soaked wood and caramel, plus a tantalizing hint of vanilla. Oaky bourbon dominates the bold flavor while letting through hints of caramel, vanilla, chocolate and horehound. Firm, smooth texture has a good amount of fizz and leaves a woody, bourbony, slightly candy-bar finish. This will take the brrr out of chilly weather next time one of them winter storms pays a visit. jrgratz (117) - New York, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Tap at Valhalla.. Pour is a clear dark amber with a nice white fluffy head.. Not what I was expecting. Aroma is bourbon, oak, cherries. Taste is incredible.. very nice bourbon upfront with a smooth lingering vanilla bean finish. Some dark fruit and some sweetness. Soft light mouthfeel.. crisp. ABV is well hidden. Beautiful beer. Was very impressed with this one ClutchMasterson (64) - Aiea, Hawaii, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Poured at a bar when I saw this randomly. Pours a nice deep nut brown. Leaves a creamy of white thick head which didn’t fade hardly and left a nice heavy lacing. Aroma is of vanilla and light resin with notes of roasty nuts and malt. Taste is a really nice lightly sweet but roasty caramel and vanilla with a sturdy malt flavor. The back reaches you witha surprisingly balanced slight floral hop flavor with just the right amount of bitterness. A definite gem to find on draft and very enjoyable. bgold86 (35) - - APR 1, 2015
Not bad for the price, not enough bourbon and vail though...solid but will not repeat, way too many beers to be had. tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Pretty sweet but not too sweet. Good oak and bourbon flavor. Surprised for being Widmer.

Bottle. Pours a dark opaque brown with tan head. Both aroma and taste consist mainly of bourbon and vanilla. A bit oaky with a very smooth finish. I love this beer; it’s expensive, but really good. Great for a special occasion or to just sit back, sip, and enjoy. EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Wow. The bourbon is so upfront it’s hard to believe it is not, well, bourbon. A nice hint of sweetness and earthy vanilla. Only got a taste but must come back for a full tap.
