This might be the most unique barrel aged lager you will find. Brewed like a barley wine but fermented as a lager then aged on fresh wet Buffalo Trace barrels for 5 months.

First from this brewer that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. Chestnut pour with crimson hues. Tightly packed moderate head. Only a spot or two inside the glass. Roasted malt, cocoa, caramel, vanilla and oak. ABV is noticeable but not at all distracting. Sweet but not cloying. Enjoyed the richness actually.

Bottle (22 oz). Clear amber with a small persistent off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of bourbon (strong, almost too much), malt, coconut, vanilla and caramel. Boozy. Taste is about the same with a strong presence of residual sugar. Warming alcohol, which isn’t well hidden. Dry. Pretty unique beer - a bourbon barrel-aged dopplebock - interesting. Good sipper with nice complexity. Not easily drinkable and balance isn’t perfect because of the big bourbon presence.

Bomber shared with Dembonz. If I had done a blind taste test of this, I would’ve thought I was having a Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Barleywine, which is in no way a bad thing. Absolutely delicious brew, with great bourbon sweetness complimenting the vanilla flavor and caramel malt backbone. A little hop finish balanced this out nicely. I would most definitely buy this again, if only I could find it.

Draft at sb. Pours a crystal clear bright medium amber with a gigantic surging tan head. Enormous oaken nose, smells like a big wet barrel humping your face. Creamy thick body with silky carb. Caramel, vanilla, toast, and bourbon on the mid palate. Long sweet vanilla oak finish.

22 oz. bottle (batch 2, bottled 5/25/12) via trade with smith4498 - Pours a slightly hazy deep amber color with a one and a half finger thick light tan head. light spotty lacing. Aroma is toasted malt, vanilla, and wood. Quite nice. Flavor is much of the same. Finish is toasty with vanilla. Medium to fully body. The alcohol is noticeable, but not overbearing. Good beer. Thanks Jason.

Tap. Pours a clear brownish amber color with a foamy off white head. Loads of toasted coconut and whiskey in the notes. You can smell the char, brown sugar, and the vanilla. Similar notes on the taste. Very sweet and long warming finish. Surprised to see it listed as a dopplebock.

Pours clear dark caramel color with tan head. Caramel and bourbon aromas with oak and vanilla. Sweet caramel, bourbon, alcohol, oak and vanilla flavors. Bourbon is a bit overpowering. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation.

Flavor is sweet malt dominant, spicy and peppery bourbon, vanilla notes, dark fruits, oak, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Full body, medium carbonation.

bomber pours med brown, taste is vanilla, raisin, and caramel. The bourbon is is present but this is not hot at all. This is a tasty beer but its downfall is it’s way too sweet ( and i like sweet). Some addtl heat might have balanced this out better.

This is a strong beer, not bold aroma, not great to the palate, but this is a good beer. If you like it strong you will like this one.
