Bourbon-Barrel Brown Ale
It is with great pride and thanks that we tap Ferocious Five, a bourbon-barrel aged brown ale of stupendous character. The 5 is a reprise of our much-loved “Terrible Two” from ’09 – a strong brown ale base brew, aged in true Kentucky bourbon barrels for the better part of a year. The leftover goodness trapped in the wood is slowly released…a whiskey lover’s fantasy brew.

Mines a couple years old now and I’m not sure it’s what it should be. The aroma is of burnt tires. In the mouth it’s very fruity a little tart and there’s bourbon throughout but I suggest you head over to my review of Sinister 7 which I am about to drink for what I assume will be a more accurate representation of the beer itself.

This is Infected from the barrels but it’s working well with the base beer. Pours black with a tan head looking a bit like a stout. You can get some brett characteristics, added with deep notes of licorice and oak, coconut, and booze. Medium body with bright berry flavors and a sturdy bourbon grip. This is aging really well, very unique and heading to sour. Paired with 72% cocoa nicely, brought the tart berry flavors out immensely.

Bottle enjoyed @ Double Mountain... Poured jet black with a dense, light kahki head. Nose had wood, whiskey, charred grains. Tasted quite hot, like a shot of whiskey in there. Still nice. Complex with loads of booze and sweetness. Toasted pecans, salted caramel. I think with some age it’ll develop into a lovely beer.

Lovely dark pour with a tan head. Lots of vanilla and oak from the bourbon without being too sweet. I’m not much of a bourbon drinking but the barrels sure make for good beer.

mcberko (14406) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours a dark brown / near-black with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon barrels, lots of fruity notes, slight rubbery notes. Flavour is intense, a mix of many different styles working well together, with roasted malt, dark fruits, tart berries, and bourbon barrels. The blend is expertly done. ABV is very well-hidden at 12%. Excellent sipper.

On tap at SIBF 2012. Banana boat (bananas and coconut) with cheap rum -- this is like a frat party tropical drink added to a stout. Boozy -- almost like malibu and coke. Really odd.

neepsntatties (1763) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 10, 2012
On tap. Colour... An amber brown with no head. Nose... Animal crackers, Biscoff spread and a generally boozy aspect. Palate... Gentle CO2 with a quick boozy burst and then a faint wave of Pepsi sirop followed by slightly burnt malt, toffee, rum cake and Bourbon filled Christmas chocolates.

Draft at SIBF. Very hot, over-proof. Black-brown. Graham crackers soaked in rum, sunscreen oil, pineapple/coconut. A bit like malibu and coke, fruitiness and cola brown base do not mix well. Alc bite over this sweet syrup.
