3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear garnet color with an initially effervescent cream colored head that dissipates slowly leaving minimal lacing. Toffee and vanilla aromas with a hint of bourbon and a tinge of bretty hairspary- I didn’t even know to expect brett in this beer, cool. Big caramel flavors with more vanilla and lots of bourbon. Drinks a little sharp right now. There seems to be some very strong tannins as the beer sits on your palate. Lingering finish that dies out with a sort of plastic note. This may be the closest thing to a let-down that I’ve seen from NG (I’ve loved most everything I’ve tried thus far and came into this with very high expectations), but then again, I’ve never seen a BA Bock with Brett before so I’ve got to hand it to them for brewing outside the box.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Only available in Wisconsin. Great flavor and aroma. Dont drink it right out of the fridge, pour it into a glass and let it warm up for 5 minutes or so, it really releases the flavor.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy dark ruby/chestnut brown color with mahogany edges and a half finger off-white head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing.
Complex aroma with a prominent barrel character that doesn’t overpower the sweet and roasted malt notes. Hints of toasted oak, vanilla and bourbon along with some caramel sweetness, chocolate malt, toffee burnt toast and hazelnut.
Medium bodied with some soft carbonation up font and a well integrated barrel presence that lingers throughout with becoming a booze bomb. Dry toasted oak along with some vanilla and coconut smooth out the sweet bourbon flavor and there are plenty of sweet and roasted malt notes underneath preventing it from becoming one dimensional. Hints of toffee, caramel, hazelnut, dark fruit and choclate as well as some dry, roasted coffee bean. Complex yet very easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Breeze Thru, cellar aged about a year. Pours reddish brown with many small bubbles not breaking the surface. Aroma has toffee, vanilla, vinious fruits. Taste brings vanilla, sour fruit, some caramel, some brown sugar. No bourbon-specific notes. Quite thin. Finishes sweet vanilla and somewhat fruity - not very long with any length being alcohol. Little "bock"y presence. My memory of having this fresh is it was better then.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[355ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Copper coloured, thin head which reduces pretty quickly to a lacing. Bourbon and cheese on the nose – very strange. The whisky is certainly there, but that faint cheesiness is quite off-putting. Tart, sourish whisky palate. Funky – you can certainly taste the Brett. Yet sweet caramel in there as well. Alright – but maybe too much going on at one, there’s quite a clash in there
