On tap @ Farmhouse. Hazy medium brown, very little head formation. Intense bourbon nose and palate-- the bourbon eclipses all else, obliterating the underlying weizenbock. If you love a bourbon bomb then this is your beer. Waaayyy too much bourbon for my taste preference though.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Got extra’d this recently in a big trade. Hooray! Large format bottle with no date. Pours dark brown and settles without letting much of any light through in the glass, with a khaki one finger head. Definite aroma of bourbon, huge oak presence, some spice, not much else here. Pretty bourbon forward nose. Flavor is big bourbon notes, a bit harsh, a little vanilla, settles with a little bit of spice and then a long caramel vanilla finish with lots of woodyness. Somewhat thin on the body, medium carbonation. Yikes. These sorts of beers just don’t handle the barrel well for me, and end up tasting very harsh without any of the sweet, pleasant nuance of the bourbon itself. Not getting into this one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Whole Paycheck. Pours a dark brown reddish color with a medium light brown head. A big barrel nose, vanilla, oak, rum cake. The flavor is rich bourbon, vanilla, heat, oak, some banana, malty rich base, more fruity sweet bananas and toffee, a bit of berries. Works really well.

This beer pours a muddy brown. You smell bourbon right away, tart dark fruits come through as well. The taste is bourbon, bourbon and a bit of bourbon! There is a tartness that mellows it a bit, but I like it. This beer is a sipper.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big bourbon nose, a bit thin, but at room temp the lower ABV helps the beer out by allowing the flavors to meld.

22oz bottle pours a dark brown color with a small amount of head. Harsh spirits taste, and the bourbon is a little overpowering, even after some time to breathe.

Bottle. Muddy brown, with just an initial fizzle. The aroma is rich with caramel sugars. The beer drinks with an inescapable alcohol burn. The bourbon is buried in a syrupy sweetness that is by far the predominate character, along with some mushy raisin and dates. (#5723, 9/7/2014)
