A: Perfect mahogany, slightly hazed pour into a snifter. Not much head lasting, but plenty of lace. 3.75
S: A little bit of beer stink, malts, sweet, woody, alcohol, no hops. Not much aroma. 3.25
T: Best part of this beer. Clear bourbon back drop, which is filled with malts, caramel, vanilla, wood, cedar shavings, and sweet apple / raisin fruits, and a bit of finishing tingle. 3.75
MF: Too low carbonation, great finish, but would like more weight in a beer of this ABV and with this bourbon profile. I upped this due to extra ordinary, lasting bourbon mouth finish that lasts for an hour +.
O: It's slightly better than their bourbon stout, enjoyable, nice to find at an airport. Definitely a sipper.
Serving type: on-tap

Yeah... I thought this was going to be better. No head on this one, hazy copper body. Nose is of bourbon and rotten funk, with some vanilla. Taste is malty, not very hoppy, bourbon and metallic. I'm just not feeling this one. Mouthfeel is ok, large carbonation. Overall, this was not decent enough to buy enough, but I'd drink it again if someone handed it to me...

Appearance – Medium amber with a white head that fades to a ring.
Aroma – The aroma is soft and oaky with a definite note of bourbon. Vanilla and toffee show through.
Taste – First taste is toasty with some toffee and vanilla. The oak and bourbon influence come through strong in the middle and carry all the way through.
Finish – Toffee candy with a light bourbon taste. This beer is all bourbon and oak from start to finish.
