deaconmike (380) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2013
On tap at Taco Mac. Pours deep walnut with mocha head which dissipated fairly quickly. There is little lacing. Malty Roma with the sweetness of bourbon (but actually fairly subtle) along with oak and cherries. Taste is sweet with the bourbon flavor more pronounced than in the aroma, yet not overwhelming. Oak and dark fruit permeate as well. Full bodied with an oily, slick mouthfeel and low carbo. Overall, really nice beer - bourbon barrel aged, but the bourbon only plays a supporting role here - although becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. Abv of 13 percent is well hidden, but warms you up!

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Dark fruit, black cherries and inky vanilla on the nose. On the palate,ore dark fruit and vanilla, with a defined pecan/nut flavor on the mid-palate... Which fades back into a long lingering finish of chocolate, vanilla, and dark fruit. Big, though not thick or syrupy... More medium-plus bodied. Alcohol is a bit out of balance at this point and needs more time to integrate. Needs time. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

ryecatcher (784) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bomber. Pours a deep, dark, opaque brown-black, hefty espresso colored head, decent retention and lacing. Nose is (deceptively) unimpressive -- mostly just roasted barley and some malty chocolate hint of butterscotch. Mouth is a beast -- big and oily, silky bittersweet roasted barley and caramel malts up front, then chocolate, coffee, toasted pecans, brown sugar, warm and slightly bitter finish. A bit heavy for August, but Iíve got reruns from January on NHL Network on the TV so I can pretend itís snowing out too. Really nice brew.

Narnad (1461) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Pours pitch black with a very creamy, tall, dense, tan head. Aroma has a nutty, toasted, lightly burnt malt character with a modest dose of earth, piney hops late. The rye has a light spice in the nose and the bourbon has a light/modest alcoholic addition to the brew. Flavor starts off with a good dose of toasted malt character that moves into a chocolate and bourbon sweetness with a light rye spice kick. Mild amount of hoppiness sneaks in at the tail end lending a light earthy note to compliment the nutty/toasted character of the beer and some light piney kick. Body is thick with low carbonation and a good alcohol heat to kick off the ending. Overall a very well balanced beer with a lot of distinct flavors that arenít muddled. Kinda wishing this one were produced more than a one off as I could see it becoming a seasonal go to beer in the fall/winter months. Very tasty brew as a whole.

zickbeer_ye (274) - Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Sweet vanilla rye maltiness with a toasty pecan aroma. Nice creamy brown head and dark red almost pitch black body. Sweet vanilla, rye, malts, some dark choclate flavors and nice nuttyness and some alc heat. smooth dry and a little hot on the palate.

Ratman197 (9792) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of alcohol, roasted malt, dark chocolate and light pecan. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, pecan, dark chocolate, dark fruit and light alcohol with a smooth lingering roasty chocolate finish. A decent beer nowhere near what I was expecting.
