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.

i was expecting really big things for the $12.99 price tag, but i wasn’t too impressed. nice silky mouthfeel, flavor has lots of caramel and some vanilla, more amber aley than anything, and not very much bitterness at all. not smoky at all. i didn’t want over the top bourbon flavors, but there’s a lack of complexity going on here that left me underwhelmed.

BrettTaylor (693) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2016
This is for ’12. Poured into snifter - clear dark orange with thick light tan head. Aroma - lots of bourbon note on nose, some dark fruits underneath. Light oak with bourbon notes on palate predominate, but finish is a bit earthy hoppy with some pine/resin.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, creamy white head. Aroma has sweet malts, caramel, light toasted, mild oak. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is mild, caramel, malty, some sweetness, light vanilla, toasted, quite oaky dryness. Vinious and quite warming.

Bottle. It poured a dark amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of malts, caramel with raspberry and bourbon. The taste was similar to the aroma with more caramel, malts, raspberry and bourbon. Nice.

ANZUShophunter (206) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2015
2011 bottle at Real: gastronomy pub, Honolulu (thanks Tap Hunter). Pours reddish amber with fleeting head. A boozy bourbon nose leading to rich malty taste with bourbon accents. Very smooth drinking and enjorable; I’m sure aging has mellowed the edges on this one.

Bottle from Salling. Pours clear dark brown with a small offwhite head. Aromas of lots of malts, bourbon, vanilla, booze, fudge, sweet licorice. Taste is boozy, bourbon, fudge, vanilla, chocolate, light hoppy. Pretty decent actually!
