A- Pours a solid brown with a one and a half finger white head. Good retention and a few wisps of lacing.
S- The aroma has a good bit of that bourbon. There is some toasted nuts and some malty caramelness.
T- Taste is big and bourbony up front. It actually lets the bourbon character get out of control. The maltyness comes through to balance it out in the finish.
M- Body is medium, well, maybe just a bit lighter than I'd like. Carbonation is pleasantly smooth.
O- It's a good malty beer that got the most out of the bourbon flavor.

A - Very clear muddy red brown in color. Okay head with good lacing. No trace of carbonation.

S - Very sweet malts that are highly pleasing for a brown ale. Just a hint of intrusive bourbon that adds to the sweetness. Not much wood or charred aroma and no hop presence.

T - Very bold and robust for a 6% beer. Starts off semi-sweet from the brown ale but then the bourbon blends in very softly and adds another dimension of complexity. Sweet vanilla flavors can be detected, pseudo toasted coconut and caramel detected by my palate. Very nice.

M/O - Body is a little light for me but carbonation is done well. Clears from the palate sort of quickly but leaves a dim bourbon flavor. Very easy to drink and a light sipper. I paid $2 for a 12oz bottle and hard to find something else as good for that price.

A: A nice brown pour with a large off-white head. Retention is quite good and the lacing is almost a solid wall on the glass.

S: A bit of toasted malt, a little toffee/caramel and creamy sweet vanilla. Very subtle smell.

T: Lots of nuts, toffee, molasses and caramel. Nice toasty malt, almost like pretzels. Some earthy bitterness and vanilla mixing with the nuts in the aftertaste. Touch of oak throughout.

M: Medium bodied, carbonation is just about right. Smooth.

O: Not a bad brown ale. Quite nutty and toasty with just a hint of bourbon.

Pours a dark chocolate brown color, with a decent beige head on top. The aroma is fairly common for a brown ale, with a lightly sweet and nutty malt base, some light milk chocolate characteristics, and only a slightest hint of the bourbon addition. The flavor is largely more of the same, but the bourbon contribution is much greater, especially as the beer warms, with a woodsy, smokey whiskey character that creeps into the flavor at first before overtaking the finish. The texture is a bit thin and watery and doesn't prop up the flavors like it should. Overall, this one is a pleasant, mild brown ale with a bit of a twist that is interesting enough to make you want to try it the first time, but it is not so interesting to want go back again often.
