Aroma: Chocolate and almonds mingle with light toasted coconut, some vanilla. Appearance: Dark garnet brown with a foamy tan head that settles into a still skin. Flavor: Chocolate and nuts are more present up front with an undercurrent of the coconut, vanilla bourbon character, which grows a bit more toward the finish. Palate: Light-medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Quite liked this; the mixing of non-barrel and bourbon barrel allowed for the entire character of the beer to shine along with the barrel treatment.

Deep brown with reddish hints. Small tan head. Caramel, vanilla, some earthy undertones. Some bitter dark chocolate taste, finish is much sweeter. Medium-heavy body, alcohol is fairly upfront. Some acidity. Reasonably long finish, although the finish becomes slightly watery. Overall, quite good. Reasonably well balanced.

A nice barrel aged beer. Nice head did cause a ticking sensation. Barrel flavor but a bit thin. Enjoyable but average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Medium brown pour with a one finger, soapy to creamy beige head. Aroma is chocolate, nutty notes, caramel, toffee and light woody bourbon. Flavor is pretty toffee heavy up front with some oaky vanilla coming in soon after then toasty chocolate, toasted nuts, nice deep cereal notes and earthy hops and a little booziness to the finish. Medium body with a creamy to oily entry, light, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation and an off dry finish with a slightly boozy, off dry finish with a light phenol pucker.

Light brown in color with a slight head. Served to me in a frosted glass. On the plus side, I can get nice draft beer in Terminal 2 of the MSP airport from Surdyk’s Flights. On the minus side A FUCKING FROSTED GLASS WTF?! SAVE THAT SHIT FOR THE MILLER LIGHT BULLSHIT! Ok now back to the beer. Nice malty nose. Slight bourbon flavor, really complementing the malt character and a hint of booze on the finish. Quite nice.

Beerman6686 (4167) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2014
This one poured a muddy lighter brown with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, toast, light bourbon but not much else. Flavor was similar, malty and sweet caramel with hardly any barrel character.

Pour (Happy Gnome Beer Dinner) brown with a white head, bourbon taste with notes of chocolate, caramel, and vanilla, decent and worth a try.

Why didn't they put the whole batch in bourbon barrels? Haha not enough bourbon for me but the notes were nice. Definitely picked up vanila and some walnut. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
