Bottle to Hop Back Pint glass
A: It looks amber to orange in color with a white to beige head that leaves a good sized lacing. It is completely translucent and as about as clean as you can get the barrels did not cloud it up at all i guess.
S: Well it is definitely interesting if nothing else the bourbon definitely stands out it is not too powerful or overwhelming but it is there is with a little bit of chocolate hint to it. The bourbon is dominant but there is some hop smells in the background along with some malt for an almost farmhouse smell.
T: Wow the bourbon flavor is really prominent upfront; it has some nice flavor without being overpowering and definitely has some chocolate to it. Unfortunately on the other hand the hops are basically completely gone there is almost not bitterness or hop flavor at all. There is some malt sweetness but it is really just a pretty solid backbone nothing too special.
M: It is smooth and very drinkable for something that has so much bourbon flavor. The beer is also really thin which sort of throws me off as it is heavy in the flavor but feels light. This isn't necessarily a easy drinking beer but the feel certainly does help mitigate the strong flavors.
O: My overall feeling about this beer is "meh" it is good but it is not great, its not that it doesn't have anything special about it or that the bourbon flavor is not good it is more that I expected this beer to impress me and it really did not. Its worth a try if bourbon barrels are your thing if not definitely skip for the price.
