Tap. Dark hazy cola brown. Candied fig, simple syrup, dark fruit, vanilla and a lot of sweeter notes in the aroma. Flavor is too sweet for me, even for the style, coconut butter, dark rum raisin, and falls sorta flat and sweet in the finish. Medium flat body.

Bottle, brought in by a customer. Pours a clear, headless deep amber beer. It looks like young wort. Aroma has loads of bourbon and vanilla in there, some red fruits, hint of caramel. Flavor is sweet, but not too overpowering, defintely some booze in there, some oaky touches. A bit of a nutty touch in the end. Aftertaste is long, sweet but not so sticky. A nice example of the style, but maybe a bit too young.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Bru Craft. Murky brown amber pour with good khaki foam on top. Nice bourbon barrel elements but the Belgium Quad underneath feels unexceptional. Modest dark fruit and medium caramel malts. Tastes good but the depth of flavor appears to be coming mostly from the Bourbon.

This is a good ass beer. It’s not on par with Allagash’s Curieux, but it’s a great bourbon aged beer. It’s got a vanilla aftertaste, which is easy on the tastebuds, but not extremely pleasing because it kind of tastes out of place, but it’s a good product overall.

Poured from a tap at The Torch. Great beer, lighter color than I expected. Aroma of dark chocolate and cherries. Not as creamy/smooth on the way down as I had hoped, but still delicious.

This poured a lighter brown color with a small beige head. Aroma was of big barrel, some dark fruits and caramel. Flavor doesn’t have as much heat as the nose would suggest, somewhat complex balance of barrel and dark fruit. Tasty stuff.
