Pours a murky brownish-amber color with a finger of off-white head. A nice bourbon and vanilla note to it on top of the rich caramel and toffee malt smells. The flavor is quite similar. Heavy bourbon, vanilla, and wood with a strong caramel malt flavor and some brown sugar.

25 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark ruby body with a small fizzy beige head. The nose is big sweet maltiness with a fairly hefty but not overpowering bourbon. Some fairly prominent alcohol vapors, but it kinda works with the huge malt. The flavor is pretty well dominated by the bourbon flavor up front but then the big sweet malt coats the tongue and finally there’s a nice charred wood finish. Full and chewy body with a nice clingy stickiness. Soft light fizzy carbonation. Pretty good beer, but not as easy to drink as the regular version.

Bottle provided by Ed Roberts, you rock my friend. The aroma on this was pretty overwhelming. A lot of bourbon and hotness going on here. It smells a lot stronger then it actually this. The flavor is a mix between bourbon, malts and vanilla. Hangs very long on the palate. Could use some aging but still very good.

Big bourbon nose, rich malts, caramel and toffee, I’m really impressed with how clean the bourbon comes through; no hot alcohol notes. Pours darker than the standard Big Sound, almost opaque, some haze, thin head dissipates quickly. Great mix of rich malts and bourbon flavors; caramel and dark sugars, mixed with a super smooth bourbon profile that goes down without any burn. Full body, low-medium carbonation, smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. Really liked this beer.

On draft poured a nice dark black color with aromas of bourbon, smoke, caramel, and a touch of cherry. Flavors follow aromas, and had a nice bourbon balance with some sweetness.

BA Hunahpu release day!!! Just a great beer, Big Sound is one of my favorites from CCB and adding bourbon just makes it better. The nose is full of bourbon. The taste of caramel sweetness mixed with bourbon flows so beautifully in my mouth. This beer and a redheaded girl would be a great time!!!

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2012 Re-rate. Nose is big bourbon with caramel, some vanilla, a touch of booze, and some light cherry. Very nice. Taste is similar with a smooth, velvety body. Tons of bourbon and caramel and chocolate flavors. Very good stuff.

Had this one on tap @ Hunahpu release day. There was an obvious presence of bourbon, and filled the nose with smoky-cherry scents and a high hop zest. Tasted fantastic, lots of roasted malts, again a little smoky with some sweet cherries and a nice woody/earthy finish. Left the mouth bitter and dry, but was overall a fairly strong brew - a sipper indeed.
