2011 bottle 13.5% abv. on the label through trade. Pour has a dark earthy brown color with a touch of tan fizzy head that did not stay around long. Aroma has mild oxidation, vanilla, some bourbon, brown sugar, dark fruit, and some dust. Mouth feel is hefty and sticky with little carbonation but there is some kicking around. Flavor brings on more of the old ale, sticky malt, bourbon, mellow wood, dark fruit, sweetness, mild bitterness, and chocolate. Wow, this is hot and after sitting in the glass for a bit has not killed it back. Super sipper type beer that took some time to get through. Glad they put this in a 12 ounce bottle.

Cloudy brown color, very small brown head. Raissin, chocolate, alcohol scent, some wood. Chocolate, raissin, alcohol taste. Dry wood and alcohol aftertaste. Warming alcohol, tounge burning at first. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
At first way to evident alcohol, though it does tone down with a few more sips, gets more easy to drink. With the dissapearing alcohol, the wood and bourbon comes through stornger and sort of dominates too much for my taste. Very nice, though if it was pushed down to perhaps 11% ABV or so might fit my taste better.

From notes. First reviewed 1/12/2011. Served on tap at Kuhnhenn in a tulip. Bourbon Barrel Fourth Dementia is bistre in color with walnut edges. A small off-white head starts firm, then fades to mostly a ring. Not much lace, but the head reaffirms itself with each sip or swirl. Not a ton of lace expected here with such a big ABV. Great aroma, there is no doubt about it. Tons of molasses, plums, raisins, fig, caramel, and dark roasted malts. Bourbon and oak just add another level of complexity, although each aroma is easily identifiable in its own right. Once I smelled this, I figured the taste would be incredible, and it does not disappoint. Just tons of flavor throughout each sip. The bourbon barrel aging interacts perfectly with the original beer. Very complex. Caramel malt is the first flavor to be noticed, and then an bourbon burning that is present throughout. Sweet molasses and roasted malt, figs, and plums provide the sweetness. Light earthy hops, then oak, smoke, and a touch of bourbon to finish. Very satisfying. The creaminess is immediately noticeable, with the body of the beer quashing the carbonation. Alcohol warms the throat and stomach throughout, and the lips are left a little bit sticky. A very full body. Barrel aging claims another victory. It just made a great beer even better. Obviously a sipper, but I would be satisfied sipping this for a long time.

2011 12 ounce bottle from Kuhnhenn brewpub. Pours murky deep nut brown. Aroma is crazy strong and has butterscotch, vanilla, bourbon, and toasted marshmallow. Wow!!! As for taste, also wow. Pretty much the same as everything I listed for the aroma. Has a bit of bitter and alcoholic bite near the end; how did they get it bitter even with all that sweetness. Just amazing stuff; very glad I got two bottles from the brewery, rather than one. Heaven in a bottle.
