Thanks to jdubfl for sharing this bad boy at the release party. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Nose is bourbon, vanilla, sugar, toffee, caramel, and a hint of magic. Flavor is very similar with lots of bourbon and big malt to support the bourbon. Lingering sweet malt/ bourbon finish to this medium bodied beer. Enjoyable beer.

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!!!

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2012
750ml, green waxed bottle, 2011 release. poured into a CCB snifter, this lovely beer rests with a deep hazelnut color with hints of rust around the edges topped by a thin khaki head that leaves sticky rings of lace. aroma is fantastic with rich notes of vanilla, toasted oak, coconut cream pie, and warming bourbon backed by candied raisins, dried figs, black cherries, and raw brown sugar with hints of maple and herbal hops as it warms. flavor is absolutely wonderful as well with rich dark fruit notes of black cherry, fig, raisins, and tart plum skins all glazed with sweet toffee and backed by mild vanilla, bourbon drenched oak, and toasted brown sugar with hints of tobacco and earthy hops on the back end. palate is rich and full bodied with smooth carbonation and a lingering, toasty bourbon finish. overall, another great barrel aged beer from CCB.
