Tap at Steins in mountain view. Thick, caramel color, creamy foam. Caramel milk chocolate, figs in the nose, not super distinguished though. A little hot on the tongue but very little relative to the ABV. Flavor is as described above but a roast bitterness commiserates with bourbon alcohol. Tad dry. Really great.

2013 at Stein’s 2nd Anniversary! Dark fruit, molasses and alcohol combine smoothly on the nose. Rustic hazy brown with white head. Complex fruit and layers of malt - molasses, bread, dough. Alcohil is hidden behind the flavor but crept in as it warmed. Smooth sherry finish that is moderately dry for the alcohol. Wonderful.

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.

Draft pour at Sidedoor. Carmel toffee and candy aroma. Red cloudy and dark pour, no head. Taste is carmel, bourbon, toffee, and very sweet. Delicious

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.

finally get to try this one. The age ddid it well. Doesn’t taste oxidized at all. Nice complex molasses flavor profile. Good bourbon flavors, tasty.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
