COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What makes Resurrection unique is the 2 months of aging in fresh Bourbon Barrels, the barrels contribute a warm, smooth flavor that comes from the bourbon soaked oak. Louie’s Resurrection has a copper/amber hue with a sweet apricot and malt aroma. Caramel, vanilla, bourbon, and some roasted malt flavor are well balanced.

Amber colored with thin to no head. Woody, oak, nutty aroma and cherries and hints of vanilla. Flavor is sweet with vanilla, cherry, bourbon, caramel malt. Sweet and thick finish with medium body, hides the alcohol well. I think letting this age a little to let the flavors meddle and mellow a bit would do this beer wonders. I'm just getting a lot of woody nutty aroma and aftertaste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sawbuck (362) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Mild aroma of bourbon, vanilla, and molasses. Deep amber color with a thick tan head. Sweet malt an bourbon flavor up font. Almost too sweet. Calms down a bit after initial sting of sweetness. Notes of vanilla, charcoal, and bourbon flavors. Spicy bitterness begins to dampen sweetness on the finish. Finish has some alcohol burn, and some toffee-like bitterness. Medium mouth feel. Sweet bourbon is a bit overdone...not sure it mends well with the style.

Thanks to MeisterbrauMHB for this! 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy copper color. Aroma is strong vanilla, cherry, and malt. Flavor is a mouthful. Sweet vanilla and cherry up front, with a strong malt backside. Also some alcohol aftertaste. Palate feels a bit thick. Overall, as my friend MeisterbrauMHB once said, it’s the kind of beer you drink and then pound the table after you’re done. It’s that strong. One of these is definitely sufficient.

Very Hazy Dark Red with a foamy head, good lacing and carbonation. Nose consists of bourbon, vanilla, caramel malts and some nutty notes. Flavor has some nice vanilla, oak and chocolate notes along with caramel and peated scotch. Body is lighter but thick and the carbonation is rather mild. Smooth and tasty!

Pours an amber/copper color with thin off white head. I was let down by this beer. Aromas of sweet malts with some hints of the barrels. Flavors of sweet malts, roast, and absolutely no evidence of barrel aging.

nellycale (190) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Poured from a bottled. Poured medium amber with a short, tight-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up sweet bourbon, vanilla, and nutty notes with touches of charred oak accenting.. quite nice. The flavor found sweet caramel and nutty notes at the core, with seemingly sweeter bourbon and vanilla laced throughout.. a little overripe apricot and black pepper came through on the finish. Light-medium bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. very tasty, but I could only enjoy it in small doses due to huge sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2013
hazy tan-amber, thin white ring and oily head. Heavy toasted grain nose, . Flavor is lightly buttery, ashy bitterness clashing with sweet grains, light tomato. Sweet burnt sugar finish. Tough to drink throughout, watery body no help.

Roonai (245) - - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle shared by deyholla; thanks Derek! Pours a hazy orange chestnut with an eggshell head that dissipates to a soapy film. Nose is sweet caramel malts- light with a vanilla hint. Taste is light but rich with yeasty with the faintest of bourbon. Decent but not quite what i was hoping for from a BA beer.

Shared by CaptainCougar at GT’s going away tasting. Thanks Tom. The beer is amber hued with a small, off white head. The aroma offers malt, vanilla, sweet fruits, alcohol. Fairly sweet with some butterscotch throughout. Bourbon character is mild. Pretty drinkable and certainly interesting. Worth a try.
