COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our seasonal brown ale brings the warmth back to the winter. Brewed with maple syrup, and aged on bourbon oak. Note: This bottle also contains our flavor bomb. This revolutionary product changes everything you know about beer! The flavor bomb is packed with bourbon barrel oak sticks, then placed in the bomber to condition with the beer.

Light Carmel corn nose and tongue. Carmel and hop bite. Where is the bourbon the barrel or the happiness? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2015 Draft at Grand Canyon Brewery, Williams. Cola pour. A: slightly smoked malts, coffee, roasted peanuts. T: vanilla, biscuit, roasted malts. Watery development. Aftertaste mocha.

PartyFowle (901) - - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Nice clarity in the crimson-hued brew, but hardly any head to speak of. A distinct peanutty aroma is accented by something unpleasant. Ammonia, or rubber, it almost seems like. Hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, maybe a bit of caramel. The flavor has less of the unpleasantness -- just a very mild nuttiness. A splash of earthy hops up front. A hint of toffee. Bourbon is very, very faint, appearing as mild vanilla vapors. Slick medium body, very mild carbonation. Seems to contains some off-flavors and misses the mark on both bourbon and the winter warmer style.

Doesn’t smell like much. Smell and taste is mineral and malt. Body is light with light carbonation.

kathouse (1492) - Nevada, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Red, fairly clear, but with no foam. The only brown is the sugar aroma. Slight bourbon, molasses, sweet malt in a very light body. Some vanilla in the finish. Would definitely not call this a flavor bomb. It’s not bad.

stevoj (3531) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Medium clear brown with sparse head, aroma and taste of chocolate first, dark malt second. Very sweet in overall presentation, but tasty.

dnstone (2453) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 30, 2014
This beer isn’t bad just kinda forgettable. Pours dark amber with a slight white head. Aroma is sweet malty with a touch of maple. Light bodied amber ale with a touch of sweetness and a very subtle wood bourbon character.

beerbaaron (1865) - Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Draft. Dark brown, almost black. Small light brown head. Really nice bourbon barrel character that doesn’t dominate; vanilla, chocolate, caramel, coffee. Low alcohol presence. Medium to light body. Fair roastiness. Moderate sweetness and moderate to light bitterness. Soft and creamy. A bit thin. Quite nice, but would be a knockout if it were a bit bigger.

daknole (10785) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Clear brown pour, smallish tan head. Flavors of a standard nutty brown, a bit of vegetal notes, herbs, super light barrel notes. Really kinda let down. Thin body.

BelgianBeerGal (3652) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Wax topped bomber from BevMo. Pours a clear, chestnut, bronze color with a thin khaki head and big bubbles of carbonation. Aroma is very roasted malt with almost a coffee kick to it. Tastes like a decent brown ale with some coffee. About the only thing I get from the barrel treatment is a hint of vanilla and booze in the finish. Nice base brown but the barrel is faint. Since the bottle actually has pieces of barrel inside it, I wonder if the barrel notes with increase with age and increased exposure to the beer?
