Draft. Poured dark brown color with a moderate light brown head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Good caramel toasted malt and bourbon barrel aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Good well balanced woody dark sweet flavor with a moderate smooth sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid doppelbock.

Not terrible, I have had other better bb dbs but I just feel this is a style that speaks for itself w/o the barrel treatment.

Taster on tap at Lackman. Clear darker red kind of brownish door. Minimal off-white head - just a thin ring around the edge. No lace. Nice vanilla, woody bourbon barrel nose. Hint of spice, dark fruit in the aroma. Some caramel, toffee, butterscotch in the flavor, some earthiness, very tasty and complex. Light to moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter too, light bourbon type alcohol. Hint of chocolate. Bigger body. Lighter, lightly soft carbonation, More dry. Tasty, complex bourbon barrel ale.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty caramel, reddish hues, thick, a bit brownish even, with a moderate frothy light beige head, decent lacing.   Soft caramel and even softer bourbon on the nose.   Not as sweet on the tongue.   Seems bready on the tongue, slightly sweet, bourbon seems to have faded.   Faint caramel and perhaps vanilla.   Not heavy at all, in fact seems a touch thin.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but leaning towards thin.   Semi-sweet bready finish, and thats about it.   Light bourbon to start, after that it seemed like a normal watery doppelbock.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Slightly murky slightly lighter cola pour with minimal head. Nice mild wood and bourbon aroma. Taste is a little less bold. Moderate to lighter palate.

16 oz bottle to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks Skyview). Looks solid; a semi-opaque amberish-brown with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; malt and bourbon. Average on the palate. It could be a little more viscous, but it’s enjoyable nonetheless.

Beerman6686 (4302) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2014
This one poured a lighter brown with a beige head. Aroma was of bourbon, dark fruits, and caramel. Falvor was similar, somewhat oxidized brleywine feel too it with nice vanilla and oak barrel notes. Solid.

wlajwl (3816) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Aroma is relatively faint whiskey notes, along with malts and yeast. The flavor is whiskey/bourbon, malts, notes of fruit and a bit of alcohol in the finish.
