Aroma made me really excited about this beer but the finish is a little to dry for me. If the bourbon wasn’t there, I think this beer would be lacking some body. Chill haze seems to be a problem with this beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottle. 2012. Poured a reddish brown color with a small head. Nice aroma of caramel, vanilla, and bourbon barrel oak. Medium light sweetness. Light bitter. Below average carbonation. A tastey, easy drinking barrel aged beer. Slight warming alcohol. Pretty good. Would take another, for the right price.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2014 Rating #949, flaske fra Voldby. Såvel duft som smag af træ, vanille og blomster. En ret skarp alkohol og bitterhed, men alt i alt en god oplevelse. Medium tyk. For dyr i forhold til kvaliteten, men stadig en ganske fin øl.

Bomber from BevMo. 2012 edition. Pours dark with medium head. Smells like toffee and bourbon. Taste is rich, caramel, bourbon, dried fruit. The Barrel Aged does surpass the standard for this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 4-27-2011. This bottled beer pours a medium sized very bubbly, very fizzy ivory head that mostly diminishes, copper transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, bourbon, vanilla, oak, and a suggestion of dark fruits. The taste is oak, vanilla, bourbon, and caramel. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This is a good sipping beer! It is not overly bourbon tasting. It is just right! The various flavors come together extremely well. This is a beer worth trying and a beer I would not turn my back on.

05-APR-2014, bottle @summer house in Marielyst, from Marius Andersen.
Clear amber with lasting, lacing, tan head.
Aroma is Bourbon and sweet malts.
Taste is Bourbon, malts. Definately a red ale underneath the Bourbon with a good malt profile and and some hops.
Medium body and carbonation. Really nice and affordable too.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Brown with small head. So, I have no idea what the underlying beer is here. From appearance, it’s moderately malty, like a brown ale or something, but very little flavor makes it way through the bourbon. I suspect they could have bourbon aged some Bud Light and it wouldn’t taste substantially different. That said, I enjoyed this -- I just wish some more of the beer flavor came through.

At the Big Texas Beer Fest on 4/5/2014. Draft pours dark bronze with a fluffy gnarly tan head. aroma is cardboard, sweet maltiness, caramel. Taste is caramel and sweet malt, this taste like a barley wine, but the brewer said it was a red strong ale, I don’t understand that.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reddish golden brown like a graham cracker, with a tiny bit of tan head. Aroma is sweet with caramel, and bourbon notes, with some woody astringency that sticks out. Taste is very similar, but the bourbon notes are woodier than expected, with less beer behind them than I would have liked. This will probably be better when it warms up. (broken bus window)

Reddish brown color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is strong bourbon/oak with notes of caramel, sweeter fruits, light alcohol. Medium bodied, barrel character completely dominates. Light carbonation, fairly sweet, very drinkable with a soft mouthfeel.
