2.25/5 rDev -38.7%
A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a golden yellow color and a clear consistency. There was an inch of foamy head that lasted a fair amount of time. Pretty good lacing.
S: A mild aroma of bourbon and malt, but little else.
T: Tasted of an overabundance of malt, light fruit and some bourbon. There wasn't nearly enough bourbon to make an impact here, but that seems to be the problem with the flavor. It's too thin and unfocused.
M: A fair amount of carbonation with a slick finish. Medium-bodied.
O: This beer is kind of a mess all around. It simply wasn't pushed far enough, therefore it was a thin brew.

Huge smell of oak which was exciting, but that was about it. Has a bright clear copper color. Mouthfeel was medium high carbonation and the taste was bright but odd. The high carbonation hurt the bourbon flavors. Both beers I have tried from this brewer were disappointing. Looked good, smelled good, fell short.

Great overall after dinner sipping beer. I have had this on tap at Bison County in Waltham Ma (great Barbeque). And out of the bottle.
In both cases it seems best served in a sniffer type glass and to let sit. It taste better a little on the warm side
A smell of bourbon at the beginning
Mouthfeel is smooth with a bourbon like kick.
Overall and excellent after dinner beer if you are looking for only one or two and to leisurely sip it.
