COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Poured black with a small, light tan head. Nice bourbon, vanilla and caramel aromas. Starts sweet with the caramel and vanilla then you get a slight boozy bourbon flavor.

ClubGonzo (4119) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is complex tones of vanilla, alcohol, peanuts, bourbon, wood, caramel, hints of red berries, raisins and nougat. Taste is caramel, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, wood, raisins, nougat and hints of coconut, alcohol and burnt sugar. Medium to full body, dry woody finish, medium to soft carbonation. A real treat; complex, big, bold and yet very smooth and drinkable - this is barrel aging at its finest. A solid and original creation from Widmer Brothers, well brewed.

Bottle (22oz): slightly cloudy brown with small head. Bourbon taste. Sweet, slightly sticky. Pretty good for the price. Should have grabbed more at Costco.

An amber pour with a subtle head. A sweet malt and caramel aroma, which carries trough to the flavor with a smokey barrel note. Spicy finish and the sweetness hang on the palate. A slight bite at the end balances the malty body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark amber from bomber from Hopey. Definite bourbon, oak, vanilla, caramel, spice and an omnipresent sweetness that becomes cloying. Some balance/ bitterness in the finish and an attempt to balance, but falls short. Leaves a nice warm feeling on the palate- alcohol is obvious. Smooth mouthfeel. Would be better by a fire with some food to temper sweetness. More interesting than enjoyable.

From 2012 vintage. Aroma is malt, bourbon and caramel. Taste is bourbon,alcohol. A bit bitter. Something is off on the taste. I can’t place it. Not terrible but not good either.
