Fantastic bourbon barrel aged beer. Smooth taste but yet a lot of weight at the same time. I found the taste to broaden a bit after it warmed up as well. Started off with it slightly chilled then just sipped on it for about 50 mins. Towards the end the flavors where really starting to shine.

Pours a mocha brown that is brilliant in the light with an off white head. It looks kind of dead but a quick waft tells you otherwise. This beer is alive with flavor. A very nicely done brown ale that gives a rich background of flavors. Chocolate, bread, caramel, toasted grains, and a very balanced bourbon, vanilla, and oak flavor. Amazingly easy to drink.

Olde Hickory Brewery Daniel Boone, Ale Aged in Oak Bourbon Barrels. 8.5% Alc./Vol. Brewed and bottled by Olde Hickory Brewing, Hickory, North Carolina.

Extra black, extra dark. With a slim whitish ring of foam above.

Aroma: straight-up bourbon, with flickers of cocoa, molasses and more. Vanilla. tobacco. black cherry.

Taste: It's all there again, the flavors from the nose jumping on board the palate, the full body, the richness, the bourbon flavors, cocoa, the toasty oak, the sweet, sweet liquor. Tasty stuff, but the question returns from the last bourbon barrel beer I'd had, where the original beer was not a known entity. Maybe the label will tell me?

"New Frontier Beer. Boone, traveling through Kentucky on his way to the frontier, need a place to store his beer. He placed an imperial brown in discarded bourbon barrels. Months later he had an amazing beer that would cellar well. And so a legend was born. (* Events presented here are not factual, but are based on actual events. In our dreams. After sampling the beer a few times.) Cheers!"

So, there you go. Imperial brown ale, eh? Not my favorite venue for bourbon barrel-aging. The flavors in the beer are utterly swamped and smothered by the barrel effects. Another case where you are drinking whiskey in the form of beer. Imperial brown ale will bring some flavor, some depth, and the booze, but not enough to really provide character, beyond what's brought by the barrels.
