(Jackie Os Bourbon Barrel Brick Kiln) Bottle 355 ml at home, served into a snifter. I wanted to try it side to side with the normal version but I couldnt make it at the time. ABV 11.8% Dark brown colour on the body, with a small line of dark tan, thin foam on top of it, with average retention. Aroma has plenty of bourbon, soy sauce, plums, molasses, dark fruits, alcohol. Great taste with plenty of vanilla and bourbon, wood, light soy sauce, dark fruits and mostly sweet plums, light alcohol. Medium body with soft carbonation, sticky on the palate and a warming feeling on the body. Very good, much much better than the non-barrel aged version.

Erzengel (7130) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2016
The beer starts fresh and smooth. Nice and deep, vanilla, wood. The Bourbon Barrel is great and intense, the vanilla is lying all over the beer. Fresh and round, very smooth and fresh with caramel and hints of grain in the aftertaste. Moderate bitterness, lots of wood, great and fresh. And extremely easy to drink for the 11.5% - the alcohol is not tasteable!

Been seeing this same batch in the beer cooler of Whole Foods for nearly a year now. Figured it was time to pick one up. Dense, hazed cola-to-opaque gradient body when illuminated. Hardly any head. Typical bourbon barrel off the bat on the nose; vanilla, caramel toffee, nutty, prickly. A bit of sticky date, a bit of char. Flavor has some great vanilla notes to complement the ripe dried date and sweet chocolate tootsie roll characters. Body is viscous but doesnt stick around too long after a sip. Linger is gently bitter and sugary with some "green" vine-like notes to it. This ones a heavy hitter in terms of ABV. Definitely a bit more than 11.5. Share and enjoy.

Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a medium beige head. A big sweet fruity toffee nose. The flavor is sweet bourbon, vanilla, sweet strawberries, toffee, caramel. Quite good.

Brown pour. Nose and taste are primarily diaper and garbage. Some caramel after it warms but that weird garbage thing pervades. Not similar to infected beers Ive had in the past, so no clue what exactly is going on here. Will revisit and re-rate if I come across a better bottle of this.

Tasted from draft. Pours a dark cloudy brown with white head. Strong aroma of bourbon, caramel, toffee, maple syrup, and vanilla. Sticky and clingy mouthfeel. Flavors of bourbon, caramel, biscuits, maple syrup, earthy. Very sweet with mild to no bitterness. Hides the alcohol very well. Overall very well done but don't expect to drink much due to sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
