Looks great in the glass, smells like almost pure bourbon...taste has that similar twang that all befell KBS as well: where the bourbon seems to be somehow applied on top of the beer instead of a part of it, reaching an almost buttery flavor that almost puts you off, but not quite.

Really enjoy this brew. Alcohol binding pretty well. Taste the bourbon in the after taste. Can't beat 2 in 1. Beer and bourbon.

Good seasonal beer. Much more going for it than billed.
