Brownish color, light head. Malty as hell. Rye spice, whiskey barrels, hints of a fruity note. Fun.

22oz bomber pours with a clear gold body that supports a near white head of foam. The aroma offers up malt sweetened grainy and breadiness rolling quickly into fruity sweetness like apricots and a dash of sweet cherries. At the end of the draw it seems to have a faint black pepper sensation. The taste is straight up sugary malt sweetness as well as soft sweet nutty bread before it picks up fruity sugar sweet cherries, apricots and a sliver of pear fruitiness. Interesting. Each sip and whiff seems to reveal something different. It seems to get flowery candy like here and there as well. Somehow the barrel treatment didnít really shine through but maybe accounted for some of the sweetness thatís going on here.

Pours a clear dark amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma has cherry, vanilla, caramel, wood, bourbon with a touch of alcohol burn. The flavor is much of the same; sweeter caramel, cherry, vanilla, bourbon and wood. The abv is noticeable, but not really distracting. An interesting beer for sure.

Tmoney99 (13587) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet cherry and bourbon wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

Bomber to taster (shared by me with the wife and friends). Looks good; a semi-transparent caramel with off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; like every ingredient in the description. Good on the palate too. Good stuff.

I cant imagine a beer that is trying to be a cocktail more accurate than this. I think the bittering agent is key. The orange, cherry, bourbon barrel and Rye are all pretty spot on. Even the worry of too much slimy Rye is lifted. Crack this open with friends, wine drinkers who think all beer is the same, whisky lovers and the adventurous. Great job Kevin at Listermanns/Triple Digit
