Trying to rate a beer I didn't particularly like is difficult, but here goes... The Bruery certainly achieved their purpose of making a BIG complex beer. Sweet boozy aromas and taste are somewhat overwhelming. This is a beer for sipping and contemplation.

Had on tap at the source on 5/8/15. Pours dark brown with minimal off white head. Aroma is bourbon and some oak and lots of dark fruits - figs, plums, raisins. Really this and sweet. Flavor follows and is sticky sweet dark fruits, with bourbon and oak. Come caramel and toffee also. This, chewy mouthfeel. Silky smooth. About 3 ounces was enough. Nice beer.

Bottle at porch nite shared with Brisben and Raith. Pours a mahogany brownish red with one finger of thin off white foam. Aroma is very malty and lots of oakey bourbon barren aromas. Flavor follows and is really sweet. Lots of maltiness, lots of dark fruits, and slight tartness. Sour cherries. Very sweet. Alcohol is noticeable. Nice beer.

Pours a hazy deep reddish brown with a thin, off white head. Huge bourbon and brown sugar notes in the nose. Dark chocolate, bourbon, caramel, hints of berry, vanilla and oak. Mouthfeel is thick with ample carbonation. Extremely drinkable for the alcohol content. Delicious old ale.

Dark pour, sizeable head. Slight alcohol warming while drinking this. Maple syrpu in aroma and taste, dark caramel, sugary, bourbon barrel prominent but not overpowering. Dessert beer, and one that needs to be sipped.. That 17% alcohol is noticeable.

Backlog. Draft at Tap and Handle. Reddish brown appearance. Aroma of bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark malts and some light fruity esters. Similar flavor, heavily sweet with other minor complexities throughout. The alcohol is mostly hidden. A pretty good sipper.

750mL bottle as "Fruet". Poured a lovely shade of burgundy with a short, looser beige head. The aroma was rich, with deep vinous notes, dark fruit, vanilla, and bourbon leading.. very strong peppery alcohol on the back of the nose.. dark chocolate and figs if you dig deep. The flavor found peppery bourbon and vinous notes on the tip of the tongue, with dark fruit jam, molasses, berries, and a touch of maple behind.. sweet bourbon, crisp oak, and jammy dark fruits on the long, belly-warming finish. Heavy-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. very coating (in a good way).. great stuff!

This is a complex tasting beer and has lots of kick hides the alcohol very well. The Bruery has done it again another all around great great from all aspects.
