From a 22 oz bottle. Pours a clear cola with an ecru head. Aroma of bourbon barrels. Odd sweet and sour flavors. Tart finish.

From bottle into tulip glass a deep brown color, dark red when held to the light. Off white lasting head with nice lacing. Aroma was a very nice mixture of roasted malt, vanillia, bourbon, a little banana, some booze shows up with a sweetness a earthiness that’s a little woody, hard to describe there’s a lot going on here but it’s fantastic. Taste is pretty much the same the bourbon and woodyness show through the most for me, the roasted malts longer and a bourbon note way late in the finish. Warms right down to the belly. Low co2 and I thought it would be thicker but it’s med body, even a little watery. I’m a fan of bourbon and a fan of Hebrew esp the special ones so I really liked this one.

Tons of aromas of vanilla, banana, and citrus. A strong, beautiful ale to enjoy as a dessert.

Cybercat (3307) - Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Comes out of the funky bottle a slightly reddish chocolate brown with a thick, if not persistent, tan head. Roast malt aroma has a strong overtone of bourbon-soaked wood plus molasses and nutty hints. Woody bourbon dominates the flavor; but the backup notes of molasses, roast malt, and earthy nuttiness all come through. Texture is quite viscous and fairly fizzy, leaving a bourbony and woody finish. L’Chaim, y’all!

On tap. Pour is brown/amber with a small tan head. Aroma and flavor of dried wood, bourbon, sour mix, plum, tart fruit, berries, and burnt caramel. Finish is whisky and tart fruit. Very boozy.

Gerbeer (1780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown/red with very little head. Aromas of dill, bourbon, and dark fruit. Flavor are similar with additional notes of oak and sour mash. Interesting mighty mix. Stands out.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2014
From the August 2014 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with orange highlights and a large foamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was tart and sour cherry, vinegar, banana, bubblegum and port wine. The flavor was tart and sour port wine, vinegar, banana, a hint of vanilla and coconut. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Very complex. Interesting.

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle... Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a small, creamy, beige head. Great retention. The bouquet is truly complex. Mainly, I’m pulling an intermingling of woody rye and bourbon barrels, chocolate and some seriously funky acidic and acetic notes. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with soft, airy carbonation. The flavor is ultra-complex as well – tart, tangy and a touch boozy, offering layers of rye, bourbon, milk chocolate, dried dark fruits, caramel, a light splash of red wine vinegar and a smidge of bread-crusty bitterness. Rich, balanced, nourishing finish. A very pleasant surprise. A treat.

Pours black. Aroma is funky and a little fruity. Flavor is easy and smooth, kind of weird but good. Sour finish and aftertaste.
