COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aromas of dark fruits, vanilla, and Bourbon seep off of False Summit from a milk chocolate head. The palate hits with notes of plums, dark cherries, bourbon, oak, and vanilla with a medium body to heavy body. As the beer warms notes of caramel, oak, and dark candi sugar become more prevalent. False Summit is a beer to drink while mapping out your next adventure and should help motivate you to always keep moving to the top. Aged in Breckenridge Distillery Bourbon Barrels.

adnielsen (10427) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Spring 2013 bottle @ home, via my rot box. Pours a murky reddish brown appearance with a medium sized brown head. The aroma has mild whiskey, caramel, chocolate covered bananas, pears, apples, vanilla, oak, and some booze. Body is a little thin. A little bit of tartness which is a little weird. Mild booze, lots of fruit (pear, berry, apple), caramel, and tiramisu in the flavor. Pretty unique with a lot of fruit but all too thin. Ok.

From a bomber. Pours a dark brown and makes a like brown medium head.m, which dissipates quickly. Aroma is of raisin, plum, alcohol, and malt. Taste of dark fruits, yeast, and big malt. Hints of chocolate, too. A very good quad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shippy (43) - - NOV 26, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Very deep velvety red color, almost purple. Smell is based around bourbon with some tartness from dark fruit catching for me. Taste is crisp with cherry and grape notes. Feel is pretty smooth with light carbonation and a noticeable alcohol heat on the finish. Overall solid quad. Flavor improves as the beer warms.

onceblind (6739) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Deep dark amber/mahogany with a very thin off white head. Stupid aroma of raisins and bourbon and brown sugar and vanilla and plums. Smooth flavor with a huge palate of boozy raisin/plum tones with some Belgian dark malts, bourbon, vanilla and oak, Finishing with some sweet dark fruitiness and a little more bourbon. Amaze balls.

degbert (1615) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with garnet highlights and a shallow, off-white, creamy fine-grained head. Nose is vanilla, caramel, bourbon, toffee, chocolate, and fig -- incredibly appetizing if youíre into the sweet stuff. Smooth and sweet on the palate; thereís more fruit (I definitely get the black cherry), toffee, vanilla, and a decent amount of bourbon booziness. Itís not too heavy, but itís definitely got some heft to it. Finish is a little hot; I also just want more body on the mouthfeel, itís a little thin. That said, itís pretty damned good.

Draft at Big Wood 2014. Amazingly dry for a quad. Coconut and sunscreen (Hawaiian tropic). Dark fruit and dry oak. Pretty fall ruby pour. Boozy.
