Tap @ Bittercreek Boise: Pours a dark mahogany color with light head. The nose is so malty and smooth; pounds of plum and almond notes with more melanoidins and caramelized goodness than you can shake a candy cane at. The bourbon comes through as well to help deliver this massive amount of poly-saccharides to your palate in a pleasing manner. Giant body and lots of bourbon and vanilla notes to complement the already delicious doppelbock. Very well done.

This beer was excellent. I wasn’t a big fan of the regular bottled version of the Double Vision, with its big soy sauce taste. But this has a big bourbon taste, and the the thick creamy texture overrides all, The heat from the alcohol was present but not overwhelming. Very drinkable very delicious!
