Bottle thanks to JK! Caramel colored pour, small ring of carbonation and a nice toffee bourbon aroma/flavor really solid and holding up well for being a 6 year old beer.

Shared at RBSG - big malty bourbon nose, hazy brown appearance. Sugary, sweet and some barrel character. Not much left on this one though.

12oz bottle, shared by Jason. Thanks! Pours a cloudy, orangish brown color with little to no head. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, cherry maybe. Medium to heavy on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bourbon, vanilla, lots of oak, caramel, really smooth, the only drawback is there’s a little cardboard oxidation, some raisin, with a light oaky finish that lingers for a while. Held up well for six years. Very glad I got to try this.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Again, finally. Murky, murky brown mahogany with the thinnest of whit head. Aroma of faint bourbon, dark fruity wine, sherry, wood, and coconut. Flavor is tart sticky fruit, red wine, light caramel, and bourbon with a semi-dry wood and coconut finish. Some residual dark fruit. Smooth and complex. Little to no booze. Tremendous.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle is at least one year old that I know of. This drinks as a sweet beer but not heavy/under-attenuated. Moderate body, no head to speak of. Coats the mouth, vanilla and sweet caramelized. This is a beautiful departure from your average bourbon beer. I get the wood, vanilla and sweetness with the booziness. Give me the recipe so I can dub this beer please.

Pours a deep dark red with thin white head. Aroma is full of bourbon and has a bit of malt, oak, vanilla, etc. Flavor is mellow up front but has a nice chorus of malty flavors that follow... caramel, chocolate, and deliciousness. I am never ever let down by these guys. New Glarus is quite possibly the finest brewery around.
