El bombero del diablo (2012) - pours murky amber with yellowish-brown head and it lacing. Nose is bourbony and sugary. Flavor adds alcohol, caramel, and rye. Sweetnd quite so. Apple/pear aftertaste. Dominated by the bourbon, but it might reveal more goodness as it warms. Bitter (unripe almond) taste in the back of the throat. Provides a literary buzz (Naked Lunch movie reference).

Bomber pours a hazy burnt orange with a think brown head. Aromas of bourbon oak and some bread and a bit of yeast. Flavor is semi sweet with a boozy oaky flavor. Body is medium to full with a good aged oak finish

Poured a clear dark chestnut orange (like a strong iced tea). There was a thin light beige head that dropped to just a film rather quickly. The aroma was primarily bourbon along with vanilla and dark fruits. The beer had a nice silky thicker texture and a nice bourbon flavor right up front along with the alcohol warmth. There is a nice sweetness of raisins, brown sugar and molasses to balance the alcohol flavor. The overall flavor mellows well into the finish with just a light alcohol bite and a big alcohol warmth. This was great for a cold snowy winter night.

Deep reddish pour with a white head that fades to a ring with sticky lacing left behind. Big bourbon, oak, and vanilla on the nose. The taste is oak, vanilla, bourbon, and a hint of dark fruit and brown sugar. Pretty hot, think Iíll lay the rest down for a couple of years.

Pours a dark brown with a very thin head. The aroma is quite subdued with just a bit of wood and some caramel. The flavor is quite nice, the caramel comes through with a good bit of hoppy bitterness. The after taste is quite nice and lasting.

Itís time! Well, it looks just like a barley wine. Thatís a good sign. Thereís a slight release from opacity, with a dark amber colored body and an off-white head. The aroma is not what youíd normally expect form a barley wine, though. It seems very much of dark caramel malts in the aroma Ė so much so that it almost smells like tobacco. The flavor is somewhat syrupy, thick, and herbal. Wow, itís unique. It feels like an imperial IPA in the mouth, but smooth and light from the oak aging. It finishes much stronger than an imperial IPA, though, high in alcohol, slightly malty, and with a definite hop presence thatís well-infused with that alcohol. I love it. The bourbon is gentle, but defines much of the beerís character. Why do I want to watch TrueBlood?

Bottle to snifter. Looks good; much like the other one. A semi-transparent copperish-brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells good too; better than the cabernet barreled version. The bourbon barreling is much more prominent, and you pick up that sweet vanilla flavor. Tastes like it smells, but it alittle hot. Average on the palate. Solid, but not spectacular.

DrSilverworm (8872) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Sample from a 22oz bottle at Jungle Jimís Barrel Aged tasting. Clear orange - yellow color. Minimal white head, leaves decent dots of lace. Good bourbon nose. Nice vinous grape flavor. Bigger body, smooth creamier texture. Light bitter taste, sweetness. Vanilla, vinous aftertaste. Gotta love Below Decks.. Always an excellent value for the money

On tap at Tap and mallet. Dark but translucent pour with a film and ring of white bubbles with nice lacing as well. Nose of bourbon, honey, more bourbon, caramel, and brown sugar. Taste of brown sugar, bourbon, alcohol, honey, fairly smooth, vanilla, chocolate, spicy and alcohol in the finish.
