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.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle #594, batch 1. Thick black pour with creamy off white, eggshell head, laces very well. Aroma brought notes of dark fruits, slight caramel, toffee, some dark candi sugar, lots of oak, bourbon, sour whiskey notes, pretty laced with hints of honey as well. Taste is much better, nice mix of oak, bourbon, nice honey, vanilla, hints of fig, plum, touch of raisin, mixing into touch of caramel, dark sugars, finishing with some sweetness, hints of oak, drying out a bit. Pretty nicely done, a bit hot but not at all bad for 11.1%.

Sampled at ESBLS. Dark brown with a creamy beige head that does not fall. This beer is fruity and pleasant, especially for the ABV. Creamy and malty with all kinds of fruit. Dark fruit, plums. Interesting wood. A little heat but just a little. Amazingly easy to drink.

Multiple tastings. Pours a thin beige head, over dark amber (SRM 15) body......nose is light Bourbon, cocoa, chocolate, light vanilla, dried fruit tones, minimal hops.....tastes of Bourbon, raisin, plum, light vanilla, brown sugar, hints of allspice, finishes with moderate bitterness.....mouth feel, light of medium body, alcohol warmth present, minimal acidity. This is an American Abt/Quad, but is delicately balanced, with the whiskey barrel adding nuances without dominating, but layering in where often various spice tones occur. BJCP 8/3/15/4/8
