From notes on 4/30/14

Dark body with minimal head. Very grainy bread like aroma. Some alcohol smell. Sour taste. Was not expecting that. Some alcohol taste. Minimal flavor imparted by the barrel. It's ok.

Poured into a shaker pint.

A: Poured like a soda. A lighter Dr. Pepper brown with a fast fading head and no appreciable lacing to speak of. Big chunky bubbles.

S: Smell was outstanding. Toffey, nutty and rum notes all over the aroma. I was impressed by the smell and very hopeful for a great flavor from this beer.

T: Sour! I was taken aback because I didn't expect any sour notes from the beer. Definite Acetic acid taste from overuse of adjuncts (corn sugar) or liquid extract. You want to taste the rum and the wood from the barrels but its just overwhelmed by sour. Some nutty, bready gets through from classic malts but that's about it. Disappointed.

M: Medium bodied with huge chunky bubbles. Drinkable but not as smooth and creamy as it could be. Probably force carbonated and would've perhaps been better bottle conditioned or brewed with cream ale yeast.

O: Definitely drinks more like a Kentucky Common than a traditional brown ale. It would've completely fit the Kentucky Common style if it had a creamier head. Being as it wasn't billed as such, I have to give this one a fail.
