Awesome taste. If there were such a thing as a sipping beer, I would have to say this was it! The depth of the bourbon, the malt complexities, amazing. When I opened the bottle and poured and there was little to no head on the beer, I first thought it was flat - not realizing the one-year rest in the barrel calmed it down and smoothed it out.

750 ml bottle from Crown in downtown Indianapolis. 2009 vintage. Blue wax. Pours a mostly clear tea-amber color with a small, wispy off-white head. Notes of bourbon are balanced so well with the base beer; caramel and toasted malts, vanilla, toasted brown sugar. Really nice. Light-medium bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Great beer.

750ml...2008 vintage...blue wax. Pours cloudy tea brown, with the head also ice-tea-like foam....quick vanishing. Aroma is sharp bourbon-soaked oak...big time. Flavour is tart, dark fruit...a fermented blend....slight sour to sweet...strong alcohol presence.....malty. A ton of wet wood and bourbon. Very good, but did not seem to age smoothly....it’s rather harsh. Grows more carmelized and thick as it warms. A very weighty brew, to be sure.....very warming.....wish I had popped this one in December and drank it in the snow. Overall, excellent....however, if you find one of these, have a friend or two to share it with....It’s a lot of beer by yourself.

Dark amber with light head and lacing. Solid caramel and malt doppelbock, replacing the usual dark dried fruit and bread tastes with a nice hint of bourbon. Quite filling, but excellent.

Bottle @ Papsø. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a small off-white head. Has a sweetish fruity malty spicy grainy aroma with some weak woody hints. Sweetish malty grainy caramel flavor with hints of wood and some hints of dark fruit. Has a sweetish malty barrel woody finish.

Bottle - shared by Dak last Spring - Pours a light brown color with a small off white head. Aroma is sweet toasted caramel malt. Flavor is sweet malt, esters, faint bourbon, and a bit of vanilla. Medium body. A good beer. Thanks Dak.

A: The pour is pretty much flat and amber in color with a small layer of off-white bubbles. S: Is this beer sour? I get a lot of fruit notes, particularly tart cherries, red grapes, and raisins. There’s a nice oakiness to the nose which provides some vanilla, though not much bourbon. A slightly bready flavor, but not a lot of the caramel that I usually associate with a doppelbock. T: There bourbon is certainly present on the tongue, providing some alcohol warmth and vanilla and oak flavors. More of the same in terms of the fruits with cherries, red grapes, raisins, and maybe even dates. A bit of molasses and brown sugar provide some malt flavor. M: The body is on the thin side, like almost all of the barrel aged beers from Shorline. The carbonation is quite mild as well. D: This beer was strange. It seems like there are some things potentially wrong with it, but I still quite liked the way it tastes.

750ml bottle, wax-capped, thanks to aasher on BA. 2007 vintage. I like Elijah Craig -bals, which bodes well for this beer. Slightly hazy reddish color with a one finger off-white head. Aroma is somewhat tart, surprisingly, but in a good way. Some fruit/berry notes, bourbon, toffee, and vanilla. No tartness on the flavor though, with a good toffeeish malt base, red berries, and a nice bourbon -bal character with mild oakiness. Medium-bodied with lower carbonation level. Not too intense, hiding the ABV very well. Overall I really enjoyed this one. A great surprise from Indiana.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle shared by Dak. Hazy amber/orange pour with a small fizzy head. Aroma of bourbon, ripe fruit, caramel and nuts. Flavor is overly sweet and fruity. An okay brew.
