On tap during Madison Beer Week. Dark ruby color. Big boozy aroma. Odd but good flavor. Sweet boozy taste, but still hoppy.

On tap at the Craft Ale House.

Poured a medium amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of whiskey, some lighter woodiness, vanilla, and caramel. Tastes of whiskey, the same woodiness, vanilla, and lighter citrus. Thinner body. Not terriable, but then again, the Barrel Aging really didn't do anything to really make this one to track down.

Had the day of the Houston Flying Saucer Eighth Annual Anniversary Party!!

..waited about 8 hours to try this...

First to hit you as the waitress puts this stuff in front of you is the aroma, tons of raw bourbon, no balance at all ...

pours a ruby brown ...

lots of crappy whiskey in the mouth, i mean, like right outta the bottle whiskey notes..

insane!! overdone!! fuckin gross ass shit!!!

If you missed this brew, go to your local dive bar, order the cheapest shot of whiskey on the rocks, drink half the liquid and cough til the whiskey comes out your nose, then leave for an hour, come back and taste and smell the left over concoction.. what you taste and smell is pretty much what you will get from Breckenridge 471 IPA Wild Turkey ..

ladies and gentleman, the party and Flying Saucer were awesome, this beer, a horrid mean party trick!

Had this at the Houston Flying Saucer during their 8th birthday party.

A - Poured a hazy orange color with a very thin white head that quickly faded to a ring

S - Is of whiskey and thats it no beer scents get through

T - Its like drinking watered down whiskey every now and then a sip would have some bitter hop flavor but I think I was just hoping beer flavors into my head not beery at all

M - This beer was very thin and watery with no carbonation to it

D - This was a very disappointing release if you cant find this beer to try yourself this is how you can make it at home fill a glass with ice add a shot of Wild Turkey and let it sit for an hour or so then drink the watered down whiskey
