Hidden in the beautiful dark amber color are aromas of vanilla and caramel that compliment perfectly the presence of bourbon. Soft oak flavors transition into a sweet yet slightly dry finish. After aging the ale for four months, the malt and hop complexity of Brrr has melded harmoniously with the bourbon barrels and become a truly one of a kind beer.

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.

A lot of barrel in this and not much behind it. Black pour with good head and lacing. Some booze and sweetness. Tap at whole foods.

Trübe rötlichbraune Farbe, fingerbreite beige Schaumkrone. Geruch nach sehr viel Vanille, Holzfass, Alkohol, Süße. Geschmack süß nach Vanille, leicht holzig, sehr weich und mild, der Alkohol versteckt sich gut hinter der Süße.

One of my favorites, helps that I have access to as much as I want thanks to an oblivious staff at a local beer shop. Super amounts of bourbon, a great bang for your buck! Especially compared to the current prices for aged stuff these days.

exeter (442) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
Pours a good head and then disappears but leaves good lacing. Has a clear reddish amber. The taste is bourbon up front of course and some smoky malt flavour, but doesn’t have as much wood barrel flavour as I would have liked. Still a great overall taste.

Thanks Tony! I totally expected an imperial stout when I started putting this into the glass. Somewhat sludgy but a nice okay, vanilla aroma. Caramel malt dominates with lots of oak barrel and vanilla. A nice beer!
