COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Launch into the exquisite flavors of bourbon with splashes of vanilla. Watch for currents of dark chocolate and dried fruit. Generous amounts of hops and malts make for a smooth journey from start to finish. Decadent desserts and aged cheeses make superb companions.

Bottle. Pours a dark copper with a thin off white/khaki head that fades fast. Aroma has nice roasted burnt caramel subtl bourbon notes and a sweetness. Taste is burnt roasted malt and burnt caramel heavy burnt flavors that make it difficult to identify any bourbon notes. Palate is full and sticky.

August 4th, 2013 - Uintaís Cockeyed Cooper is a deep, smoldering sweet sipping experience, with tons of brown sugar and vanilla in the nose. A huge head pops up after the pour, but here and there I catch whiffs of rose and fig, and sweet potatoes too, with dough and cinnamon to complete the bakery themed bouquet. The flavor is intense and delicious - sweet balanced with hops and malt all the way to the end, where alcohol suddenly takes over and turns this into much more of a spirit than a beer. Caramelized sweet potato, marshmallow left lingering a little too long over the fire, some honey and vanilla, chocolate, and a touch of graham cracker. Itís not too sweet, but flirts with it, covering a range of delicious flavors from start to finish.

750 ml bottle at home (originally tasted when this first came out in Reno). Pours a slightly hazy amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, some dark fruit, hints of chocolate malt, bourbon, vanilla, the hops are very mild, comes off as a smooth drinking English barley wine.

Light chestnut brown color with a slightly off-white head. Aroma of vanilla, toffee, grain, and dark fruit. Sweet flavor with toffee, vanilla, some fruit, and grain with very subtle bourbon hints. Very nice!

jeremyh70 (882) - Missouri, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pours a clear chestnut with a ruby tint and a nicely sustaining tan head with decent lacing. I get a pleasant toasted marshmallow aroma along with some grain and light bourbon. Taste has a moderate caramel sweetness with hints of bourbon and toasted marshmallow along with wood and a medium piney bitterness in the finish. Light/medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Above average with nice flavors and easier to drink than you think it would be. Would probably benefit from some age.

2015 bottle. Pours a clear dark mahogany with a nice tan head. Aroma is fairly light with mostly grains and a little alcohol. Taste is grainy and woody with a big herbal bitterness. The bourbon comes in under the grain with only a little sweetness that is quickly cut by the alcohol and bitterness. Medium mouthfeel with a little alcohol burn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ARH (830) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2015
22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Mild caramel and vanilla aromas bloom forth with a dark fruit sweetness. Late wood dominates, and even later, dried fruit and toffee become the dominant aromas. The beer is a sparkling effervescent red brown with lots of sediment. A foamy, soft beige head retains a medium thick ring and a puffy surface, and leaves a decent puffy, messy lace. Itís a high / medium high bitter with a medium high sweet. The beer is thick and gritty with a fizzy carbonation and a full body. Toffee and light bitter citrus flavors are most 5 notable with some pine and light dried fruit. It finishes with resin and a light roast character which turns to sweet, candied fruit, then to bitter, dark chocolate and wood. The aftertaste is bread crust, bitter wax, and citrus peel, which doesnít linger too long.

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Pours tawny brown with a tan head. The aroma has brown sugar, toffee, oak, vanilla, caramel and warming alcohol. It has a medium / full rich body with some roughness a good amount of carbonation. The taste starts with raw oakiness and bourbon in addition to the aroma notes. However, the aspects of the aroma are much drier. There is also some dense crusty bread and ultra dry toffee. The finish has lots of raw oak, alcohol heat, spice and barleywine girth of the full taste. Really nice barleywine.

drdisque (632) - Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2015
From a bomber poured in a snifter. Aroma is smoky and boozy. Flavor is stiff harsh bourbon flavors with notes of charcoal, burnt sugar, and a bit of tar. Slightly bitter. Finish. Many off-putting flavors and not many good ones to counteract. Alcohol far too present. Disappointing.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 26, 2015
From notes. Tasted in early 2013 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle at SvTís house. Pours cloudy brown/orange with an average tan head that leaves average, even lace. The nose is caramel, resin hops, some vanilla, and earthy yeast. The flavor is fairly dry for all of the caramel and vanilla, with the hops and earth providing some bitterness. The body is full with average carbonation and a long, very bitter finish.
