Every year I can’t wait to get my hands on this beer. I’ve always thought is was really interesting to have a barrel aged amber.

Bottle. Pours opaque light brown with light tan head and some lacing. Chocolate raisin aroma with bourbon notes. Bready malt upfront with soft chocolate notes. Vanilla follows with very subtle bourbon and some pleasant bitterness. Some alcohol in the long finish. Medium body; lighter than expected.

Lively pour with good head retention, effervescent, immediately has bourbon, caramel, charred woodsy oak aroma. Comes across the palate as a balanced amber ale. Taste is clean, moves from normal amber ale to bourbon finishing with banana caramel. Not as "bourbon-y" as some aged beers but very good. Head remains as beer warms becoming more complex with nice lacing on the glass. In short this beer tastes like another!

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Tim. Pours copper with a decent beige head. Aroma of bourbon, malt, and caramel. Taste is bourbon, malt, fruit, caramel, and wood. Kind of sweet, but the alcohol comes through more.
