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.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Pours dark murky brown with nice off white head, side by side with the anniversary barley wine. These were not the same, but looked very similar. Aroma in this had notes of wood, oak, dry cocoa, dark fruit, some bread, rum soaked raisins, touch of vanilla, slightest hint of bourbon. Taste was nice and balanced, don’t get any of the 11%. Nice oaky wood, some slight pine and earth, with hints of dark fruit, cocoa powder, some slight sweet vanilla and bourbon, but only if you are looking for it. I wish there was a bourbon influence in here, its delicious nonetheless.

BelgianBeerGal (3716) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Quit putting wax on capped bottles, jerks! Anyway, traded bottle. Looked and smelled amazing but the raw booze overpowered the flavor. For me it wasn’t even really bourbon flavors just booziness. Okay overall.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2011
(Bottle) Pours clear mahogany brown with dark orange highlights. Creamy, nougat coloured head. The aroma is surprisingly restrained with citric hops, wood shop, mild bourbon and caramel up front. Undertones of fudge/toffee, bread, nuts, dry honey, chocolate oat cookies and dried yellow fruits. As the beer gets warmer I’m picking some herbal and piney notes as well. Quite dry on the nose. The flavor is light sweet, near medium bitter and light acidic on the finish. Tones of citrus, wood, dry caramel, pepper/ginger spices and light alcohol. The mouthfeel is clean and fairly soft with light to medium carbonation. Wood, light bourbon, bone dry citrus and almost bready lingering. Medium bodied.

Hazy brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee with citrus and pine hops. Sweet caramel flavour on a good hoppy background. Quite strong alcohol impression

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle. Nice, super dense, super creamy looking ultra-light tan colored head that can completely cover the glass with a swirl. Underneath lay a deep auburn color. Nose is mostly caramelized sugar with somewhat piney hop touches around the edges. Flavors bring more caramelized sugar and piney hop notes, but not really much of the bourbon character. Its nice and clean though and tastes like every single lagunitas beer should taste like if they weren’t riddled with their depressing house character. But, styles like this...with everything being a combination of caramelized sugar and piney hops without much complexity whatsoever or much of anything else going on, tend to bore me. The alcohol is nicely hidden though and is detected solely by its warmth...it’s a decent beer, but it needs much more bourbon character because I’m having issues getting any hints of it.

nearbeer (4771) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 9, 2011
750 Ml. C’mon guys quit cagin and corkin your great beer. The last one exploded on me, and this one the cork broke off half way. You make great beer, not wine! Nice mahogany body with a quarter inch of creamy foam. Nose is bourbon, chocolate, caramel, hints of orange toffee. Flavor is more orange toffee with chocolate, some citrus, mint and just a hint of the bourbon barrel. Medium-heavy body is smooth, well-balanced, and very drinkable.
