Poured into a glass at our hotel in Bath, England

A: amber/bronze with a one finger head that dissipates rather quickly. Decent lacing.

S: Honey, oak, caramel, malts.

T: Yum! Follows nose with toffee and bourbon. Smokey, sweet, oh, so good.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: Best ale we tried in the UK. Smooth, bourbon-y and delicious. Highly recommended.

Appearance is a nice caramel, very similar to whiskey. The aroma is a bit of oak and caramel malt. Flavor is excellent with burnt sweetness coming from both the wood and roasted malt with just a hint of hops in the background. Body is surprisingly light considering the complexity and ABV.

This is an excellent beer that hits the sweet spot between complexity and drinkability and maintains the oak and whiskey elements while still being really good on a hot day. Far better than Bourbon Barrel Ale, which tends to overwhelm with a syrupy vanilla wood flavor.

DO NOT drink this straight out of the bottle; pour it into a glass. Like any nuanced beer, the aromas bloom when allowed to open up.

This can drink it 10,000 different times and pick up something else that you like about it every time you drink it. I highly suggest drinking this beer if you like a beer that has a hint of Oak and a smooth after taste, also try this with any kind of buttery meal (Ie a steak with butter on it or a pork chop with mash potatoes and butter)...Cheers

Thin head on a clear bright golden body. Aroma is a touch mild with oak and cedar wood dominating with notes of grain, orange and pale malt. Flavor is very bourbon or whiskey like just less sharp with oak in the finish. Imagine a whiskey that doesn't make take you back that you can take a mouthful of as oppose to sip. Smoothness of a nicely aged bourbon. Light to medium body and light carbonation. As a whiskey drinker this beer is both intriguing, memorable and tasty.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a bright amber color, with a large off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, vanilla, toffee, honey and a little bit of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of vanilla, toffee, caramel and honey. Then a hearty but not too heavy malt character comes in along with the essence of oak barrel aging. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, it’s a good beer but considering the price there are better alternatives that are similar and less expensive.
