On draft at Sweet Grass Dairy Cheese Shop on 9/14:
A - New penny copper in color with very little head. What head was there has dissipated quickly leaving a soft lace on top.
S - Bourbon, burnt sugar, malts.
T - Sweet oak, lots of vanilla and little hint of chocolate. Tastes like a cheap Bourbon to me...
M - Light-Medium Body, carbonation is nice but it doesn't carry the alcohol well.
O - Not a great combination of body, flavor, and booze. It's sweet but doesn't hide the alcohol with such a light body. Just not my thing.
Serving type: on-tap

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on March 9, 2014.
The pour is highly attractive with its medium amber, bronze color. The head builds up quickly but just as quickly fades. Great clarity.
I was expecting more booze on the nose. Certainly I get a great dose of caramel malts and sweetness but little in the way of bourbon. It seems like a sweeter pale ale.
The taste is a more promising with its sweet malty notes and vague bourbon notes. But nothing extraordinary. Just a generally sweet beer but don't think you're getting a good dose of bourbon or other liquor when you have it. Maybe it is meant to be subtle.

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.
