3.6/5  rDev -18%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Very strong. I expected this however it was a bit strong for my taste. I am a very big bourbon fan so I decided to give this a shot. Strong rich coffee sent with a similar bite to the tongue. Heavy in abv and you can tell. I feel like one or two of these 12% would knock me out. Not my favorite, but doable.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

$ 6.99/12 oz bottle
Undated bottle at 45 degrees into snifter
Aroma very malty and oaky
Head average (3.5 cm), very light brown, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring and broken layer
Lacing – none
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor begins very sweet with flavors of oak and malt. After a few moments, the alcohol is just detectable; no hops, no diacetyl. Ends with a lingering sweetness and an alcohol stomach burn.
Palate medium to full, creamy, carbonation lively

This is a very good beer and well worth the price. The flavor is excellent, the aroma is excellent, the palate is very good, and the appearance is good but somewhat lacking because of the absence of lacing.

4.4/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: The beer is rather hazy brown in color and has traces of yellow near the edge of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a short whit head that quickly died down, leaving lacy threads of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of bourbon are present in the nose. Slight hints of alcohol are also perceptible once the beer warns up.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of bourbon from the barrel aging process—vanilla really stands out in particular. Only hints of toffee from the underlying beer are perceptible.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation. Slight bits of warming from the alcohol are also perceptible.
O: This beer definitely tastes strong, but rather manages to mask most of the alcohol from the taste (except for the bourbon). It is a very nice beer to sip and savor.

Beer shared by RussianDragon. Thanks Dave.

The beer is chestnut brown with a thin beige collar. The aroma brings a huge dose of bourbon, followed by malt, brown bread, oak. Bourbon steals the show. Delicious flavor, following the aroma. An almost tannic character. The aroma is the star of the show here. Thin body with a light feel on the palate. A touch of spice with a hearty malt body. Very tasty.

The beer comes in a murky dark brown. Hints of copper and red coming through in the light.

The aroma has wonderful sweet vanilla and bourbon. Then toffee, caramel, deep brown toasty bread, wet raisins, boozy cherries, dried dates.

The flavor hits of a punch of bourbon and vanilla in the front. Then again the toffee and sweet fresh caramel. Then some hints of tobacco and leather. Dark fruits simmer on the surface of boozy raisins, dried figs, dates, and plums. The finish is of some alcohol, bourbon, some drying oak.

The beer has a medium plus to full mouthfeel.

This beer has a beautiful melding of flavors. The beer is quite similar, but with a better melding of the sweet and fruit notes of the beer and bourbon.

I had this blind against Backwoods and this knocked that beer off its feet.
