2013 bottle. Smells like vanilla and caramel with bourbon. Taste with layers of bourbon, vanilla, caramel, toffee and smokey oak. Delicious all around beer, gets better as it warms, definitely a sipper.

Bottle. Murky brown pour with a small head that bubbles away to nothing quickly. Rich, burnt caramel, toffee, vanilla, and bourbon. Big, boozy bourbon taste makes this a sipper. Big burnt caramel and toffee sweetness helps to balance. More oak as it warms. Medium to full body. Great sipper but I enjoyed the brandy one more.

2009 bottle thanks to Adam! Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is apple skin, caramel, bourbon, and butterscotch. Slick mouthfeel, nice bourbon, vanilla, candy sugar, wood, lingering sweetness, really enjoyed this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. 2013 vintage. Pours dark chestnut, almost murky brown, with a fairly prominent off-white head. Aroma is lots of bourbon, toffee, fig, sweet candied fruits. Flavor is bourbon, very sweet fruits, fig, raisin. Body is fairly effervescent for such a strong beer, but it’s welcome and actually really nice. Slightly bitter finish which makes it better. Fantastic beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a beautiful clear dark amber. Minimal to no head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of cotton candy toffee caramel corn subtle amount of booze. Starts malty sweet then followed by hints of burnt sugar and bourbon notes. The vanilla flavors from the barrel aging are prominent and add to the beer. Mouthfeel is medium plus. Overall excellent dessert beer
