Received from @jdell15 in NBS BIF #9. Reviewed 8/18/19. Thanks Jacob!
“02/01” built from dots on bottom of can. Stored at 42 degrees and served at 57 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Appearance – 3.75.
First pour – Gold, clear.
Body – Amber, opaque. When held to the light, golden-amber and translucent.
Head – Large (Maximum six cm, aggressive center pour), light tan, medium density, shorter than average duration leaving an irregular four to fifteen mm crown and a partial cap.
Lacing –Poor. Narrow band of tiny to small bubbles.
Aroma – 4 – Honey and bourbon.
Flavor – 3.5 – Taste does not follow nose – malty and slightly sweet, no bourbon and just a hint of honey. Ends with a bit of malt bitterness in the aftertaste. No alcohol flavor or aroma (7.5% ABV), no dimethylsulfide, no diacetyl.
Palate – 3.5 – Medium, bordering on syrupy, lively (approaching fizzy) carbonation.
Impression and interpretation – 3.5 – A bit gimmicky but still a decent take on a bock. To my taste, bock/doppelbock brews are two that are lessened by hanging out in bourbon barrels.

Pours an effervescent amber with 2+ fingers of tan head. Somewhat dissapointing head retention & lacing

S: Restrained bourbon & cakeyness, both buld as this warms

T: Follows the nose, plus boozey cherry & fig up front along with oaky dryness & a little sourmash. Dryness, honey with subtle leafy hops once warm with more sourmash. Finishes dry, woody, with highly drinkable sourmash notes

MF: Chewy, low-key carbonation, warming. Boy loosens up a little as it warms

They did a great job on this, guessing it's tweeked from last years version, that or this is just a different animal on draft. Try it if you can

Had it on tap at a BJ's in Little Rock. Delivered with no head and little lacing. A deep golden orange. Pungent sweet smell. Sweet bready taste of honey and spice. Good beer.

Look - Has a rich caramel color, with very little head.

Smell - Very rich and unmistakable smell. Not supper hoppy, but with hints of vanilla.

Taste - No lingering hoppy aftertaste. Honey and Toffee are definitely noticeable. If this beer were rated on taste alone, it would probably score highly for anyone who enjoys a good craft beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Pours a clear tea color with a surprisingly light colored head; the foam build was rather modest and it quickly faded to a ringlet; streaks of lacing created a bit of a shower pattern

Smell: Bourbon, vanilla and oak tones waft above the base toffee malt and honey tones

Taste: The toffee and honey flavors intermingle, from the outset, with the Bourbon; through the middle, the Bourbon effect builds, bringing vanilla and oak, as well; the finish has a hint of an alcohol burn that is very pleasing

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: I am not a big fan of Bocks, but Lost Forty has a winner with this beer; very creative (I have not seen anybody provide Bourbon barrel treatment to a Bock before) and surprisingly well balanced

I love this beer. Lost Forty claims it's 6.3% abv, and it reminds me of Dundee's Honey Brown but better in every way.

Draft, 6 oz pour in a wine glass

A – Deep amber to mahogany, limited foam head, off-white, but with very long retention.

S – Caramel and mildly smoky whiskey, some vanilla and nutty aroma. Mostly malt, no real hop presence.

T – Toffee and vanilla, mildly sweet, honey is definitely in the mix here. No hop flavor, some mild hop bitterness for balance.

M – Very low carbonation, full in body with some residual sweetness. A touch of hop bitterness to help with balance. No dryness, just juicy throughout.

O – One of the more mild barrel-aged beers I’ve tasted, very smooth and easy to drink. It does nothing to blow me away, but is a solid variation on a well-made bock.
