12 oz bottle

Pours a brown-cola body with an inch off white head . Decent lacing

Smells of malt and nutty hops. Not very prominent

I taste malts but nothing really stands out.A very slight vanilla sweetness, and a very slight bitter aftertaste

Very slight prickly feel

Overall, Kind of average...
Nothing really stands out about this one. I'm not tasting any oak barreling. It's OK. My nephew sent me a bunch of these 3 months ago as part of an NFC championship wager. At the time I really liked em . now It's more like, "What was I thinking ? " This last one was sitting in my fridge waiting for me to review it. Perhaps it went bad?

Dark brown in color with plenty of light seeping through when held up to the light. A moderate amount of minute sediment is suspended within the body. A fingernail of off white to light beige foam covers the vast majority of the top. Light Brussels lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, hazelnut and dark malt. The flavor is muted than the nose would indicate. It is mostly dark malt and hazelnut. I do detect a hint of the sweet bourbon in the aftertaste. The mouth is dry and sticky.

12 oz stubby poured into rocks glass. Mostly clear brown body with red highlights and a tan head. Some retention and a bit of patchy lace. Barrel notes of bourbon and vanilla, roasty and caramel malts, a touch of chocolate. Taste is bready with caramel and roasted nuts, some vanilla and cocoa powder. A good balance between these sweet and bitter components. Medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy texture, bitter oak and roast finish.

12oz bottle dated 12/22/2014. Served in a snifter 2/18/2015.

A-Cola brown body, half finger offwhite head with average retention, spots of lacing.

S- Toffee, caramel, a bit of vanilla. Sweet brown ale base is present, mild smoky bourbon aromas. Some cereal graininess.

F- Mild bourbon flavours, a bit of oak, small amount of vanilla. Mostly toffee, a bit of coffee, plenty of caramel sweetness. It's a sweet beer, but the bourbon helps cut it a bit. The finish is a bit off with a non-descript astringency that isn't quite attributable to the bourbon.

M- Medium-thin bodied, OK carbonation, a bit sticky. Finish is cereal grains and that astringency, perhaps the combination of the cereal and the bourbon.

O- It's alright. A bit different than the other stuff on the market, but really nothing exceptional.

Murky brown with a nice foamy head. Nice nutty malt smell with just a hint of the barrel smell. Taste is normal malty nutty with a hop finish. I catch on to the vanilla which blends well with the bourbon. I am not a fan of this style, but I like this combination. This company keeps surprising me. The finish is extremely smooth. Do I detect cinnamon?
