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.
