Very aromatic with a light malty booziness and hints of vanilla. Somehow it tastes more like a Maibock in this whiskey version, and certainly a better than average interpretation of the style. Some sweetness, a good dose of malt, and some burnt sugar. Spritzy

Moderate bitter aftertaste along with the endless woody aroma and still some sweetness on the lips. This is actually pretty interesting. It's a good sipping brew with lots of flavor while not being overly alcoholic. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Haggen Market in Washington.

Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a chestnut color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of bourbon, some vanilla. Taste is strong of bourbon, malts, alcohol becomes more prevalent as it warms. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

Great nose with a bit of coconut. The whiskey barrel give it nice depth.

2018 release. An interesting take on a Maibock, not a style I'd typically think of when barrel-ageing is in play. Much of the hop and lager character is a bit subdued compared to the regular Dead Guy Ale, displaced by a significant quantity of oak and a touch of apple cider. I have not tried Dead Guy whiskey, so I did not know what to expect from the spirits. Balanced malts and a moderate sweetness. Pretty nice finish and smooth mouthfeel. Subtle and enjoyable.

L: Head is just like Dead Guy Ale. Disappears quickly even after throwing it.

S: Vanilla and bourbon right up the nose after opening the bottle. In a glass it's so inviting. Very seasonal, warm, fall smells.. Vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, bourbon

T: Vanilla, peach cobbler, pumpkin pie, bourbon, cinnamon, nutmeg, that classic pub ale taste on the backend

F: Medium body, silky, smooth, medium carbonation, dry on the backend

O: Solid beer, highly recommended! I can enjoy this beer from September through February. It's balanced, really highlights being aged, and has so much depth. Unlike other whiskey aged beers, this doesn't have that soy sauce astringency, this is completely unique. This is the perfect autumn/winter beer.

I'm not a huge fan of the regular Dead Guy, but view the BA version as a solid upgrade. Pours a pale, soft brown with a small off-white head that held around pretty well and made for a very attractive beer.

Mild aromas but the oak, vanilla, and caramel from the barrel is nicely present. Little bit of floral hop balanced with a light roasted malt. Quite grainy. Very nice.

Taste follows with a wonderful but subdued wave of bourbon characteristics: vanilla, oak (and other woods), molasses, toffee, and maybe a hair of tobacco. But those flavors fall off pretty quickly and what comes behind is fairly un-noteworthy: earthy malt, a little piney/grassy hop, and a dry finish. About what you'd expect for a short barrel aging of a mild beer.

Feel is a little thin, which may not be fair on a style basis but the definite impression I get coming off the smell and taste. Nicely carbonated, very, very drinkable.

Draught 8oz snifter at the Brass Tap here in Baltimore. Best of the Rogue "hat trick" I scored this evening.

Pours a not quite clear dark copper color with slightly off white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is very mild - malt, booze and oak. Taste follows and again is very mild for a BA beer. Finish is almost on the dry side with lingering woodiness. Easy drinker but not real exciting.
