COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled; Special.

The beer is a 5.8% barrel-aged baby scotch ale called Bourbon Baby, which is the ideal accompaniment to this burger as the honey notes and spicy sweetness meld beautifully with the rich beef and tangy BBQ sauce. Bourbon Baby is light bodied and low ABV and packed with toasted shortcake and blossom honey flavours. We threw a load of First Gold, Willamette and Mt Hood hops at this beer and then barrel aged it for added complexity. The barrel ageing adds a demonic, dark vanilla twist. Rich brown sugar, hints of smoke, spice, chocolate and raisins are just some of the multitude of flavours that have developed.

Coca-Cola looking beverage, small tan head. Actually smells like a bourbon and coke too - liquorice aroma also. Quite a smooth beer although you’d expect that from the abv. Slight bitterness, mellow malts. The bourbon flavour is there but not overpowering. Its a little underwhelming really. Lightly carbonated but leaves quite a dry mouth feel.

330 ml bottle Very clear, dark ruby, brown color, normal dense light brown head. Aroma is very caramel malty, some wood(sweetness, vanilla), sweet dark malts. Taste is balanced, woody toffee all the way, the wood dominates with some malty caramel notes. Light bitter finish and not much aftertaste. Medium bodied, very smooth mouthfeel and light carbonation. The taste is very barrel-forward :)

Draft. A deep red beer with a tan head. The aroma has notes of caramel, alcohol, and over ripe berries. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, alcohol, berries, and some fruit, leading to a bitter finish.
