Another review that sort of got lost in the in Microsoft Word saves in my phone. Drank from a generic tulip.

Appearance- Pours a murky brown with a small white fizzy head. A small spotty cap remains with a decent collar. No lacing.
Smell- Surprisingly subdued. A light tartness is the first thing to greet my nostrils along with sweepingly caramel sweetness. The barrel may add a touch of vanilla but it’s pretty fleeting for 13 months spent resting on wood. The tart is strange, hope it’s not big in the flavor.
Taste- Well thankfully the tartness doesn't resonate in the taste. A huge rush of bourbon (unmistakable Jack) and rich caramel/butterscotch. Vanilla and even a touch of chocolate work in especially as the beer warms. The hops hold true to the Town Hall standard as there's a fruity bite in the finish. Not necessarily bitter but definitely not sweet. A touch of booze in the finish as well.
Mouthfeel- Fairly thin all things considered but the fairly peppy carbonation helps a lot. A bit of warming from the booze.
Drinkability- Not shabby at all! The Jack barrel really is the star of the show in this brew. It’s pretty easy drinking and full of flavor. Good stuff, glad I came down to try!

Surprised to see only 2 other reviews for this one.

Pours 1/4 finger of beige head. Color is a murky chocolate caramel brown.

Aroma: Very sweet and malty. A lot of dark fruits. Cherries, plums, figs, and some bready malts. The oak shows, but the JD is faint.

Taste: The JD shows much more here and adds a nice kick. Very sweet. Bready malts and toffee. Cherries, plums, raisins, figs. A light spice. Oaky.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, creamy and warming. Medium to full bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends a tad dry.

OVerall, this was a really solid beer. Very enjoyable. Very complex with a lot of awesome flavors. I am a big fan of this one.

Draft. Hamlets Curse aged in Jack Daniels barrels. 10oz pour into a TH tulip glass. Pours a murky reddish tan mahagony color with a 1 finger light tan head. Earthy, barrel, with some sweetness in the nose, like smelling raisins. Medium mouthfeel. Starts off with a sweet flavor with hints of apple, pear, and raisin and then the jack barrel takes over with with a solid full frontal dose of jack with some sweetness. Some lace left on the glass. Ends with a lingering slight bitter and booze flavor. Not overly boozy tasting though. Slight warming effect.

Poured on tap into a 10 oz snifter. Special Release for MN Craft Beer Week.

A- Muddy reddish brown color, murky, nice lacing, ½ fingers to 1 finger head dissipates quickly.
S- Sweet fruity aroma, slight earthy notes, unique aroma lingers from the jack daniels barrels.
T- Very tasty, nice and warming as it goes down your throat, taste the jack daniels, slight sweetness and bitterness, nice booziness to it, but not over powering at all, very balanced.
M- Medium mouth feel, coats the palate, slight bitterness in the after taste.
O- The last special release from Town Hall of MN Craft Beer week was not a letdown. A very nice and unique beer, love the taste from the jack daniel barrels.
