COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bourbon Barrel Soaked Sustenance Beer is our spring Schwarzbier (black lager) aged in bourbon barrels for 10 months. It features rich roasted malt qualities with bold flavors of vanilla, charred oak, and even a slight nuttiness. The light, crisp finish makes this bourbon soaked beer light in flavor, which is wonderful because it highlights the complexities of the bourbon aging process. The light body also makes it an ideal beer for a springtime refreshment.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2010
Bottled. A slightly hazy deep red beer with a thin beige tan head. The aroma has notes of caramel, malt, bourbon, and alcohol. The is sweet with notes of lightly roasted malt, alcohol, bourbon, wood, red berries, and roasted bread, leading to a dry roasted and alcoholic finish. The alcohol burns the tongue. A bit too much for me. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 12th July 2009
Cloudy dark brown beer. Dry crisp palate. Mmm bit sour this - like a very sour Porter. Unsweet wood provides dryness. A splash of bourbon adds to the sourness. Finishes tangy and dry. Dissapointing beer from Shorts (who I love). Too dry and sour with nothing to balance. 2.6

2014. Much more mellow sourness now. The bourbon and oak come through. Mild dark fruits. Still a little woody bitterness. Finishes light and semi dry. Decent.
