12 oz bottle, first time i poured into a glass and second time i decided it was good from the bottle too.
looks like beer, nothing really special about the appearance.
smells of bourbon, with a little vanilla, like vanilla extract in a way.
tastes of sweet delicious bourbon. very mild ale with sweet bourbon and a slight hint of vanilla extract, i can't stop drinking this, i downed the first one in less than 10 minutes it's so good. but the "ale" part of the beer is purely just the way it is fermented because it is very mild for the 8.1% abv, tastes like a boilermaker. my dad who only drinks coors light, harp, and molsons actually liked this beer.
this beer is really drinkable, if it weren't for the high alcohol i would have no problem pouring the entire 4 pack down me in one sitting (but it takes me a few hours haha) but then you're a little sick.
i would love to have this beer all the time, i think it is worth the $12 for the 4 pack.

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.
