rusty amber, lighter-colored than anticipated. probably thinking 'stout' when I saw bourbon barrel aged.... everybody's bb-aging everything these days... or blending everything, it seems....
fruits and alcohol, then bourbon on the smell.
taste is alcohol heat. liquid is thin, but the alcohol is very prominent. and not the bourbon. for $20, I expect WAYYY better than this. very one-dimensional. I get the slight toffee in there, the vanilla. somewhere there is some fruit, I guess. but I kind of feel like i'm nursing a cheap brand of no-name whiskey. not much to understand or know of it, and not certain if that taste was intended to be there, ya know?
it looks pretty good. it has a nice color and some good foamy stuff around the edges. but there isn't much else to hang the hat on here. alcohol HEAT is too prevalent and I feel i'm drinking the cheap sh*t... and yet this one cost $20 at Huntington beach total wine. very disappointed... article says it was brought out june 5th, and yet there are only three actual reviews on BA? is that the same as a restaurant never having any customers? I bet ratebeer has it at 96 like everything else... too expensive to dump; i'll choke it down, take whatever buzz I can get from it, and kiss my frig because there is better stuff in there to wash down the bad taste. glad I did this one first!!

On tap at the bier stein the other day.

The beer pours a fairly dark, copper amber color with faily good head retention and light lacing. The nose is very sweet and malty, and was dominated by an aroma of cherry cough drops and vanilla. There was at most a hint of bourbon in the aroma profile I thought. The flavor profile is just more of the same in this sweet beer, and I confess I found it a bit heavy and cloying on the palate. Mouthfeel is fairly fully, with a long, malty, slightly hot and boozy finish.

Tried this side by side with the other two Gentlemen's club beers the bier stein had on offer, and found very little diference between any of them. All of them were dominated by a considerable amount of sweet malt and vanilla.

Serving type: on-tap
