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.

22oz bottle from Douglas... Pours a cloudy and muddled dark caramel brown with a thin light beige head... Dark toffee and caramel malt aroma... Sweet caramel and toffee malt. Really not too much barrel. A little heat in the finish. Could use a little more bourbon to bring extra flavors out.

Bottle, thanks Eric. Pours brown, with a tan head. Aroma is malt, bourbon, caramel, and dark fruit. Flavor is fruit, bourbon, alcohol, caramel, hops, and wood. Medium body, and not as sweet as the aroma leads you to believe. Really good.

9th rating. Red waxed toped Bomber from footbalm. Another Gift from Eric. Thanks buddy. Drank all by my lonesome out of my reidel snifter while my GF detoxes before Burning Man. Pours rich brown with a nice tan ring. Nose is woody with nice bourbon and sweet sticky toffee notes. Nose doesn’t necessarily have that much of alcohol feel. Taste is rich with a bite. Toffee and wood come through with some bourbon. Not all that big of a booze bite here, also a nice slightly warming throat. The booze here is somewhat in the taste but its not hot, glad to have had a chance to try this big ole BW from Salt Lake.

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2009
0.65 l bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2008. Mahagony color. Sweet bourbony and berryish aroma with vanilla, toffee and chocolate. Malty, bready, berryish and warming flavor with more vanilla and bourbon towards finish. Really good balanced bourbon character but flavor is a bit too bready.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Pours a dark amber/orange with a thin cap of foam. The nose was a nice perfume of Bourbon, malt and vanilla. The taste started with hazelnut and sweet malt. Next comes smooth Bourbon with dark ripe fruits; raisin and fig. The finish had a rounded, well hidden boozy mix of whiskey and pine. Holy Shit! I was expecting a boozy, bourbon/malt bomb. What we got was was a nicely developed, seasoned, well aged ale. BBB was aged in Bourbon and Sherry barrels at a three-to-one ratio for two years. I’m sad. This will never be released for public consumption or competition(less the Stockholm Whiskey & Beer Fest). If you happen to get your hands on a bottle you’ve found a rare beautiful thing.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 What can I say, thanks a ton Mikey for this beer. Bomber shared with footbalm, mikey, and wasatch. Pours a light brown color with a small tan bubbly head. The aroma is very sweet; some bourbon but more like a sherry or sweet candy note. Very sweet and warm aroma. The taste is excellent; it has a lot of the regular BW, but very mellowed; sweet candy, strong, but mellow bourbon, a strong dryness, your palate is left begging for more. Very mellow, the original was quite hot, and this version is warm, but very quaffable. An excellent beer. To bad this will never see the light of day. Thanks very much Mikey. Re-rate: OK, we know have a batch two. Barrel aged only in Bourbon barrels. Unfortunately, the labels are the same. Anyway, batch two is really nice, even better with more hops and less sweetness. Really nice.

Bottled@SBWF2008. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, alcohol and some raisins + other very sweet notes. Flavour is coffee, alcohol, plum, raisins and some mild bourbon and wooden notes. Quite burning alcohol in aftertaste.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2008
(Bottle 65 cl) Pours a clear warm orangey brown with no head whatsoever. Distinctly fat bourbon aroma. Quite full-bodied with nutty accents and hard roasted - almost burned - malt accents and a rather alcoholic finish. 180908

Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Mahogany colour, no head. Aroma of vanilla and chocolate. Sweet with plenty of molasses, bourbon and oak. Spicy and cramelly, a bit syrupy with lots of peppery warming alcohol. Treacle and bourbon linger in the finish.
