Bought a 22oz of this.
A. The appearance was nice, but not what I expected. Having never heard anything about this beer, I sort of expected it to look like a Dead Guy. It does not. The hue is an almost bring orange with a very bright white head that features prominently and then dissipates quickly. A very light, bright color scheme to this beer.
S. It smelled good! Malty, fruity, and with a nice oak fragrance. The aroma was actually the most pleasant thing about this beer to me since it did in fact smell similarly to Dead Guy but oakier and lighter... which might not sound that great but it was nice.
T. This was where the letdowns started. It tastes good but I expected more. It has nice light fruit undertones and the maibock taste is there but the issue is that it tastes too carbonated and, well, light.
M. Same as above. The mouthfeel really put a damper on the taste for me because it was too bubbly and light tasting. It's mouthfeel is like a pale ale without the hops, basically.
O. A decent beer, but ultimately a letdown. Not worth the price of admission and not as good as Dead Guy, I don't think and especially not Double Dead Guy (overpriced though it is). The worst part: where's the whisky barrel taste?! That's part of what sold me on this to begin with.

Hadn't seen this one before and thought it was neat. Loved Dead Guy and enjoyed Double Dead Guy so I figured I'd pick it up.
Poured into pilsener glass; light amber like honey in color with a fluffy long-lived white head made of very fine bubbles.
Smells of buttery crackery malt, light caramel.
Taste reminds me a lot of Double Dead Guy, without the booze heat. Crackery caramel malt, tons of Maillard reaction flavor with some light vanilla and oak in the finish.
Mouthfeel is clean and medium bodied.
Overall, not much difference from Double Dead Guy here. Maybe I should try them side-by-side but eh well. Still tasty!
