2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear amber with a head that is just off white. Aroma is a blend of floral hops and bread. But this could be generous, as it leans towards a neutral. I might get a bit of caramel in there actually. The taste is much more of the same. Not much really to note except that there is a really yeasty flavor that is prevalent throughout. Thankfully, there isnít really any aftertaste, although that yeastiness does linger slightly. Surprisingly, this is light in body considering that this is a little stronger. The texture is thin and slick. I donít like to be rude, but to call this something seasonal in any season, especially the winter, is kind of insulting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
OK, so I am really confused. I am reviewing the Bourbon Barrel Aged Euphoria Pale Ale - Dementia Aged and Confused. But it is not coming up on rate beer so I am putting it here. Aromas of smokey maple wood, toffee, toasted caramel, deep malts, red wine grape must and moderately noticeable dank hops. Appears a dark ruby amber with a thin white foam and moderate lacing. Taste is confusing indeed with bitter hops upfront followed by a musty grape juice, red wine, grapefruit peel, citrus-y,herb-y hops, toffee, oak, barrel wood and toasted caramel quality, Finishes with buttery hop flavors and a slight bourbon burn in the throat. Overall, this is really crazy stuff. Never heard of a bourbon barrel aged pale ale. Very interesting, the bourbon doesnít come out too much in this but Iím sure its because of the style of the beer. More of a woody, grape juice, wine tannin, whiskey and oak-y trait in it. Very interesting. A rating.
