Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark red pour with white head, aroma has notes of nice whiskey, vanilla, touch of earth, hints of nice chocolate, caramel, toffee, hints of spice. Taste is a mix of big bourbon and whiskey, vanilla, hints of chocolate, coffee, some hints of toffee, caramel, finishing sweet, slightly boozy, finishing fairly dry. Pretty nice.

Thanks to Matt for this very brew! Dès la capsule sautée, je plonge mon nez dans le goulot de cette bouteille que je fais par la suite circuler. Nous notons tous cette explosion chocolatée qui émanent de la bouteille et sommes convaincus que ce chocolat définit l’orientation principale du liquide. Faux. Le liquide est ambré et translucide comme de l’eau. Un peu trop rouge pour ressembler à un whisky, il pourrait passer pour un Cognac. Peu de mousse, beaucoup d’arômes. Le chocolat annoncé s’est fortement estompé une fois le liquide versé. Ce dernier affiche cette fois beaucoup de caramel chaud, de sucre d’orge, de tofee et une arôme plus complexe qu’il est rare de retrouver dans ce type de bière. Je l’ai! De la banane flambée au Rhum. Un beau rhum brun de canne à sucre douce et tropicale. Texture moelleuse malgré la forte effervescence. Sans être trop sucrée, l’équilibre est excellent entre l’amertume présente, la cassonade et le bourbon dont les notes alcoolisées et tropicales me rappellent plutôt le Rhum. Une bière douce, délicate et très plaisante à déguster!

22 Oz bottle from Eric. Thanks so much! First marble, and it’s a good one for sure. Pours a dark brownish red color with a swirling fizz head. Caramel and dark fruit forward aroma. Flavor is semi sweet, with caramel, and a heavy vanilla background. Just enough bourbon to know it’s there, and not overpower the other fantastic flavors going on here. Dry, vanilla spice and oak finish. I knew I was excited for these beers, but this actually exceeded my expectations, which was a surprise to me. Awesome beer.

Bottle from Beaumont. CBC left a mark! Pours a mostly clear dark copper color with a medium white head- dies down. A big sweet fruit bourbon nose. Sugary, hot, some toffee, actually lots of toffee, berries, some vanilla, the bourbon is big. Light tobacco. Nice beer.

bottle thanks to @@ron. nose is super malty with rich vanilla and woody notes with some dried fruit and plums. Taste is similar, very rich and smooth, sweet, but not cloying. Light peppery alcohol. pretty nice.

Bomber from Dick’s. I think basically everything Marble makes is exemplary so I just went ahead and snatched this bad boy up. Poured into a goblet, the beer is a deep, rich, clear ruby red with a small khaki head. Aroma smells like a barleywine. There are plenty of sweet malt notes of toffee and bread along with potent vanilla/charred oak and subtler hints of tobacco, earth and berries. The body is medium heavy with the perfect amount of sweetness for the style. This is barleywine, right? I don’t see what else it could be. The bitterness becomes apparent finally in the flavor, but no real strong hop flavors develop. More sweet notes of toffee, vanilla, oak, figs, tobacco and rip fruits come through. Very nice beer.

Bomber, 2012 vintage. Intoxicating aroma of caramel, bourbon, wood and vanilla. Pours reddish-brown with a thin tan head with good retention and lacing. Starts with excellent caramel sweetness with a slick, smooth mouthfeel. Finishes equally as smooth with the bourbon, wood and vanilla taking center stage as well as a slight boozy burn at the very end. This is a fantastic beer with the complex flavors complementing each other quite nicely.

2012 vintage, consumed 2/19/15. Draft. Age treated this well, as I found this to be much better than many others. Clear ruby mahogany. Small beige head. Gorgeous aroma. Complex. Great bourbon barrel character. Very ’cohesive’. Great balance. Super.
