Bottle. Pouts a red brown off white head. Smells sweet brown sugar oak booze raisin or dark fruit. Pretty good beer grows on you. I’d like to age it for a bit see if the sweetness goes down.

Looks like a bunrt maroon sort of look. Smells wheaty and malty. Has this brown sugar scent. Lots of malts. Hint of bourbon and lots of chest burn. Hints of vanilla with an oak finish. Very roasty with lots of german wheat / yeast.

I’m a fan of almost anything barrel aged. I haven’t been a huge fan of Coney Islands brews in the past, but I can honestly say this one is worth a try. Great taste and good aroma, and definitely a good bang for your buck. I bought the 22 oz. bomber and drank it from my beer snifter.

22 oz bomber pours brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and whiskey. Taste is malts and the whiskey. This one will age well, need to get another and keep for a few years.

Poured from 22oz bottle. Pours a nice copper color with just a bit of off white head. Aroma is toffee, figs, whiskey, fudge, caramel and some medicinal alcohol. Taste is sweet with some toffee/caramel and dried fruits, lots of sweetness and some rye in the back end. A tasty beer for $12 for sure.

Bottle. Amber brown pour, thin white head. Aroma is whiskey, caramel, rotting fruit, dead leaves. Oily. Sweet! Followed by a nice candy finish. A bit saccharine, ABV well disguised. Date beer! :) A bit too sweet but this one is a nice bourbon barrel.
