In tap at Pizza Stone. Pours dark amber with cream head. Aroma is toasted malt with some fruity notes and bourbon. Starts with sweet fruity flavors with caramel malt and brown sugar. Some bourbon and oak flavors. Finishes with some booziness.

Sampled with Alan Van Anda at the brewery - Pours a dark amber in color with reddish tones if you hold it up to the light. Aroma is thick with oaky woodiness, bourbon and lots of vanilla. Flavor follows pretty closely. Palate is creamy, but not thick. Slightly bitter in the finish. Very unusualy and very good!

500 mL swingtop bottle, thanks to sflpunk for this one. Pours a gorgeous almond color with red hues and a cream colored head. Aroma holds lots of bourbon, vanilla, lactic cream, candied chestnut, wood, marzipan, and some tart yogurt... maybe lacto infected? Flavor is really cool! I’ve never had a bourbon barrel aged lager, and that’s exactly what this is. More heavy flavors from the aging, but placed on top of the light and crisp foundation of a bock, with some hop bitterness at the finish. After tasting, I’m more convinced that this is not infected, just had heavy barrel notes on the nose. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but I mean, it’s a lager. Such an intriguing beer. When all is said is done, it’s tasty and interesting, but not particularly complex or fantastic. Still, cool stuff!
