UPDATED: DEC 20, 2012 The was can be a bit difficult however cutting around the edge deep into it like a bottle of wine does help a lot. Get past this without frustration and there is a nice beer overall. Has a nice dark ruby red color with just over a finger head. Aroma is balanced with sweetness coming out first followed by just a hint of the barrel. Taste follows the nose with some sweetness and maltiness with very little IBUs noted. Mouthfeel is maybe on the medium side which I appreciate as it goes well with the style of a doppelbock. Overall, as a beer it is very solid but as a doppelbock I feel it is great with the added tweak of the barrel, which is not too heavy. Solid beer from such a small brewery/pub.

Pours a nice reddish amber with tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is rich and delicious. Taste of wood and bourbon meld well with a strong doppelbock. This is a tasty and drinkable beer. Thumbs way uo.

tap - Pours dark brown with a minimal tan head. It smells of caramel malt and bourbon. The flavor is of sweet caramel malt and moderately strong bourbon with some vanilla notes. Quite good.

Aroma is sweet but a bit flat. Poured a nice dark deep brown, but lacking a head. Taste is a little boozy, sweet, but nothing poignant. Feel is nice and carbonated but thick. Would probably age well.

Bottle - Pours dark brown with a ring of tan head. Nose is bourbon, butterscotch, bready malt, and nice sweetness. Taste is the same--lots of bourbon and butterscotch, bread, yeast, and a sweet warmth. Thin and watery with medium carbonation.

Really tasty beer! Pours a hazy dark amber. Aromas are caramel and bananas. Vanilla too. Dark fruit flavors with more sweet caramel and a warm boozy finish. Really nice.

500mL bottle. Poured smoky reddish-amber with a short, tight-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up lots of sweet bourbon and caramel, with accents of peppery spice and dark fruits. The flavor found sweet caramel, vanilla, and some dark fruit at the core, with mostly sweet (but slightly tangy) bourbon emanating outward.. finished tacky and sweet, with just a little pepper and bourbon kick. Medium-bodied with OK transitions through the palate.. tighter bubbles on the middle.. this was a solid drinker.

Bottle. Brown pour with off white head. Smells of caramel, toffee and bourbon. Good barrel aged flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ Floydster’s. Thanks, Kyle. Sort of a murky dark amber, brownish colored pour with a small off-white head. Smells a lot like bourbon and vanilla. Kind of roasty, but some sweet banana and caramel. A bit of charred oak. Pretty toasty as well. The flavor is fairly sweet and heavy on the banana. Some raisin, banana, and vanilla. Sort of roasty and burnt, some wood, toasted nuts, and cola. Kind of thin.
