Opened a well carbonated bomber of the 2015 release and poured into a snifter glass. Copper in color with plenty of head. Fruit, caramel, and a nice Bourbon smell. Taste is sweet with caramel, vanilla, and dark fruits rounded off by bourbon. Would buy again in a heartbeat at 12.99!

2014 vintage. Cloudy nut brown pour. Dense one-finger head with tight bubbles. Lots of lacing. Wonderful mouthfeel. Very boozy and definitely the first taste is bourbon. Aroma has lots of bourbon. Nutty flavor is definitely present but not much in the vanilla or toffee sweeter flavors.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle) Reddish brown colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with caramel, dried fruit, rye bread (sour dough bread?), oak wood, bourbon, dried apricots, honey, vanilla and toffee. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, rye bread, bourbon, oak wood, toffee, vanilla, apricots, hints of liquorice (salmiac), dark cherries, raisins and a warming finish with a gentle spicy/earthy bitterness and a certain bourbon glow. Full body, quite sweet. Tasty, warming and complex with a generous bourbon wood character. Excellent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful pour, great mouthfeel, but lacking a touch in the flavor department. Excellent copper pour w/ a retaining white head & good lacing. The aroma is surprisingly light w/ some bourbon coming through. The taste is heavy bourbon w/ the subtleness of the cherries as an undertone. It has a lovely mouthfeel but overall is just a solid beer.

The taste of this one is heaven. The bourbon barrel really brings out the best of this beer. You have a lot going on and I canít even begin to pick out every single thing, but I will try. A rich malt base with caramel, vanilla, brown sugar. Sounds sweet? The barrel aromas step in and balance it out. It has a nice, round, full bodied taste with a long finish where the bourbon barrel notes just wont disappear. I really enjoyed this one.
