Amazing beer! Walks the line between liquor and beer. When I popped open the bottle the fragrance of booze is intense. Like someone poured a bottle of mash whiskey into it. The hue is a dark coffee. Light head. The booze is intense. It is full bodied with a bitter wash down. It seems to be the trend for brewers to barrel age their beers. Overall an all around solid beer.

Bottle. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, burnt, chocolate and booze. This beer has a nice body with rich sweet with a little bitter bite from the alcohol. Nice beer, and the bourbon aging is a nice balanced addition.

Great beer had it on Saturday with my buddy after a day of shooting. Bought it at Albertsons and if you like the flavor of bourbon this beer is for you. It has a very dark pour and at first taste it seems bitter but after that it is incredible.

22 oz. bomber share thanks to Evan. 2011 vintage. Appearance: black color, slight dark brown film of head, no lacing. Aroma: bourbon, oak, molasses, coffee, light chocolate and roast. Palate: oily texture, full body, soft to flat carbonation, warming alcohol feeling, super smooth. Taste: very sweet molasses and huge bourbon tastes. Overall, very smooth, but I feel the bourbon came out too much for me due to the aging. If you love bourbon beers, here you go, I typically do, but this was a little much.

Bomber. Nice toasted malt aroma with rich bourbon and oak notes and a hint of vanilla. Pours inky black with a thin light brown head and some lacing. Excellent stout. Toasted malt with great bourbon flavors and a slick, smooth mouthfeel. Finishes equally smooth with excellent vanilla and oak notes with just a hint of booze. Wonderful.

2013 bottle. Deep brown pour, no head. Aroma is all bourbon with hints of bittersweet chocolate. Taste is thin, crispy, vanilla. Very reminiscent of a Vanilla Coke. Not great.
