3.03/5 rDev -21.1%
It looks good, but it didn't taste as well as their other Reserve Series beers, like Melange a Trois or Hop God. It just wasn't well balanced, almost a bit sour and oaky as well as whiskey forward. Maybe I'm just not into this type of beer but I was definitely disappointed by it's taste in comparison with their non-bourbon barrel aged beers. I would definitely recommend their others but I can't recommend this.

A.Black with a two finger tan head.
S.Whiskey with a hint Coffee.
T.Mostly whiskey with malt, coffee, and coco.
M.Alot thinner than I expected. Not smooth in any way.
Overalls I feel this beer is overrated. It's not bad but did not meet the hype.

2011 vintage. Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Pipeworks snifter.
A- pours black with a 2 finger dark tan head. Big blotches and trails of lacing remain on the glass.
S- whiskey dominates. Faint; chocolate, vanilla and oak.
T- whiskey dominates. Whiskey, dark fruits, bitterness, sour mash.
M- medium body and carbonation. Slightly acidic and effervescent.
O- bummer! Not sure why I waited to open this because time hasn't done it any favors. Way to one dimensional. Whiskey is almost all you pick up. This is why I will never buy Nebraska beer. Way overpriced for the product they put out.

4.45/5 rDev +15.9%
A: 4.5 rich and dark pour into a snifter with a slight head with full dark bubbles
S: 4.5the whiskey comes out first on the nose followed by the oak
T: 4.5 sharp fruit taste followed by all of the oaky whiskey-ness that you could want from a beer.
MF: 4.0 very full body that does not disappoint
O: 4.5 this is a beer that I would always drink when someone else buys it. At $21 a 750 ml it is hard to justify to wife that it is NEEDED but it is still a great beer and I am glad to have tried it.
