GABF. Another good Rocket beer at the fest. Sweet and fruity hops on the flavor and the aromas. More malty on the finish. Some alcohol. Very good.

Lots of alcohol with some mild phenols present. Ripe fruit and brown sugar up front leading to mild astringency and alcoholic heat. Muddled hot finish.

GABF 2007: Poured a hazy brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of raisins, apples, fruity, brown sugar. some age on the malt. Nice vanilla and bourbon. just enough bourbon in the flavor. Bourbon from the front and back. Fruity malt middle. Full bodied.

Smooth and full bodied. Mostly caramel but the hops come through nicely. Smooth bitter finish. Well balanced.

My Favorite at GABF 2007. Had this one in the middle of my GABF evening and it POPPED my taste buds into a frenzy. Great balance between the hops and malts. Nice amber malts come through with a nice added bitterness from the rye. Not sure what the ABV is but since Booster is part of the name assume it a big one...I could not tell.

On Tap at Toro 20th Anniversary party. I have to say that this was one of the highlights of the "special" beers on tap - but I’m a big fan of barrel aged beers. Pours dark with little head. Aroma is woody with quite a bit of bourbon (it’s aged in Wild Turkey barrels). Very smooth beer with woody stout flavors. Aftertaste lingers a bit. Good stuff.

This beer smells like whiskey. Plain and simple. Pours black with no head. Looks like motor oil in a sense. Many flavors come out in this one. I got black licorice, whiskey, raisin, dried fruit, roasty malt, and tons of alcohol. Extremely unique. Obviously is meant to be sipped because this is thick. Lingering alcohol and smoky sweetness is present.
