Enjoyed on-tap @ Coles 735 MAIN in Lexington, KY for $6. Tapped from the Brown Wooden KBB Tap Handle w/ a Horse on the top into a 12oz Snifter Glass. Have enjoyed in bottle so wanted to give this version a try.
Aroma- Tons of alcohol, bourbon, light single malt aromas. Very clean.
Appearance- Received with no head at all. Has a deep golden/light copper body with decent clarity. Leaves a few suds behind.
Flavor- Starts off very sweet and then winds down to all malt and light bourbon. Very light and almost no bitterness.
Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Light-Medium Carbonation, Smooth, but VERY watered down... Not sure if there was a keg issue or just the way they do it in keg but mouthfeel wasn't up to par.
Overall Impression- I HIGHLY recommend you enjoying this from a bottle. For some reason it was watered down on the mouthfeel which took away from this great brew. However, this was very nice in bottle.
Serving type: on-tap

A. It has a clear, copper color with a small white head and limited lacing. There are bubbles surrounding the glass that pop up to the top from time to time.
S. There is certainly a bourbon scent there. Heavy alcohol.
T/M. It has a refreshing kick to it. A slight bourbon taste, heavy malt and grape taste. Full bodied with a long finish. A very mild bitter kick.
O. It's got a nice, smooth taste, but the flavor isn't as bold as I might have been hoping for.
