A nice draft pour from Fox & Hound in Ohio served in a nice matching snifter.
Poured a clear golden amber color with a small dense white head. There Was excellent lacing throughout the beer.
The aroma of bourbon was there along with a light sweet scent follow by woody oak hints.
Taste was very smooth slightly sweet with a wonderful bourbon aftertaste. Slight caramel and oak flavors present. Very very small hop characters noted.
Mouth feel was smooth , and a bit viscous. Very light carbonation. Little alcohol finishes but surprisingly light for a 8.2%ABV
Over all a very enjoy able ale. If you like bourbon also you would be please to try this beer. I know I will again.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours amber with absolutely no head. Aroma is nice and oaky, soft bourbon presence, vanilla, and a tease of some toffee. Aroma is nice but I wish it could have had a touch more depth to allow it to be great; nails the bourbon and barrel influence, lacks enough beer presence. Flavor is toasty with oak, vanilla, toffee and bread, and a soft bourbon presence. A medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this far surpassed my expectations. I always saw this one on tap at the craft bars in Colorado but always passed on it. For whatever reason I assumed it was a dud. Now that I am living in Kentucky and found singles of it on the local shelves, figured I'd give it shot. Certainly glad I did. I have somewhat recently discovered I love good bourbon barrel aged red/amber ales and that is how I would describe this. I really enjoyed it and dig that its offered in 4 packs. Will return to this one for sure.
