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.

BeerBunker (857) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2015
750ml bottle. Pours burgundy with a big, foamy beige head. Aroma is of wood, bourbon, vanilla, and caramel. Also has a nice hop aroma to it as well. Taste is very sugary, with lots of caramel and wood. Some vanilla as well. The hop character is there as well, and is very grassy. The finish is all wood. The alcohol is there, but doesn’t make it hard to drink at all. Mouthfeel is creamy, sticky, and decently carbonated. It’s very sticky, but it’s so easy to drink. Goes down way too easy.

Slight hazy copper color, short head. Aroma is very biscuity bourbon, slight vanilla, lots of malt, caramel, hint of raisin, some alcohol. Medium sweet in taste, slight bitter, quite some alcohol burn in the finish. A bit too alcoholic to be really awesome

A clear mahogany body offers vibrant crimson and amber highlights beneath a tall, creamy-tight, light khaki head creating lasting spots and short peninsulas of lace all around

Aromas and flavors with solid intensity and complexity, caramel and vanilla with drying oak and big thinning bourbon spirit spiked with citrus over a range of fruity, bready compliments, blueberry, strawberry, dates and raisins, toast and dough, graham cracker, marshmallow, aromatic and bright for the style, all on a warming, somewhat hot, slightly creamy, smooth medium body leading to citrus and oak bitters conjuring coffee cake and milk chocolate in addition to faint echoes of the previously mentioned components, a general sense of scotch and s’mores transitioning to crème brûlée on the extended residual

The heat and complexity suggests this is a strong candidate for aging, while also making for a warming after dinner drink with great depth tonight

Bomber. Tasted on 5/2/15. Bottle from Total Wine Dallas, TX. Shared with Espo. You definitely got a mild bourbon on the nose but it mellowed out when you tasted it. Very nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arkurzynski (1718) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Reddish brown. Nose of light bourbon, booze, fruity malt and caramel. Flavor is caramel malt with some fruit and dry oak/bourbon. Sweet. Smooth considering this was bottled just a few months ago. Good, but did note some of the sulfur notes others have described. Not detracting. Good, but not a standout.

portableparty (2019) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2015
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 - Uinta’s 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. It’s 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!
