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.

This is by far the best beer I have ever had. The subtle hints of oak and cherry make this a very smooth beer. Itís not hoppy and in my experience most beverages with this high of alcohol content, the alcohol tends to be overbearing but not with False Summit. Extraordinary beer! I do wish we could get it in the Seattle area.

This beer just does it for me. Iíve been a beer lover for many years and enjoy all different types. This is a strong brew but isnít over bearing. Something about it just makes me happy.

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.

Deep maroon with surprising clarity and ruby highlights below a fuzzy brown sugar head. Aroma is decadent and sweet -- grape, raisin, maple, vanilla, booze. In the flavor things are more dry and complex, balancing raisin, fig and grape with crusty raisin bread, vanilla, oak and, finally, brown sugar-soaked bourbon. Taken together, this is one of the best bourbon-barrel quads Iíve had. The vanilla of the wood comes through in a beautiful way and the bourbon flavor is kept to a minimum, just an accent for the dark fruits. Superb.

Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of bourbon, dark fruit, toffee, candi sugar, light oak and light vanilla with a smooth lingering fruity finish.

750ml next to Boulevard BBQ and River North BíSide. This was the winner. Sweet dark fruit with a great backing of oak and bourbon character. Very smooth and distinctive with a little hint of tart pucker at the back end. Wonderful beer.
