Nearly a barley wine in richness and alcohol content. Yummy malt, cloves and molasses with the breath of aged bourbon. Wonderful to drink, but also great to cook with. I made booster cupcakes with booster bananas foster. Also, a marinade/sauce for salmon.

GABF 2007. Smooth brew. Alcohol is well hidden. Oak and bourbon presence very evident. Excellent.

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.

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 Stone. Reddish brown with a slight white ehad. Aroma of caramel and alcohol. Thick sweet palate. A big blast of alcohol taste transitioning to a caramel and fruit taste with a smooth finish.

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.

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.

Crushed with Jakebra at BSAF. Excellent. Hops and bourbon. Cool combination in this one. Better than Gordon barrel. Great balance of both flavors.

Tap at Blind Tiger Alehouse. Deep dark amber beer. The aroma on this is massive. Lots of big bright fruity hops. Intense chewy sweetness. Lots of rich caramel and a touch of sweet plumminess as well. Pine resin and bright fruity/citrusy hops. Sticky malts with a touch of light vineous character. Fairly chewy on the finish. This is a barley wine in everything but name.
