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.

Shared bottle with Timfoolery. Smelled of bourbon and sweet malty goodness. Tasted pretty much the same. A little thin on the palate which takes it way down from the elite beers.

2011 vintage I had this one last year and was amazing another year in the cellar didn’t help. Looks like it peaked at 4 years. Pours out a amber topped with a sand head. nose is caramel vanilla light bourbon barrel notes. Taste is starting to feel age a little cardboard but still with the sweet caramel malt and bourbon.

2011 vintage provided by buckeyeboy... Cool to see one of these again.. Thanks Jeremy!! pretty thin ... lite caramel and bunches of a mash-up of odd wood/whiskey/ and bits of dried fruit.. 9.4% isn’t readily available, but the overall brew is thin like a bigger amber that has some obvious barrel work... caramel and minor pick-up toasty malts.. I wish the hops had any play at all... really.. I wish anything with depth played ball tonight.... just nothing except the EtOH to really write home about.

IslandHaole (1201) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - MAR 24, 2016
2012 bottle, clear amber with ruby hues, just a trace of a beige head. Very sweet with Vanilla and Oak, hints of whiskey & cherries. Quite sweet, still beer with little carbonation. Very warm, alcohol is up front, not hidden. Slick oily feel. A bit of bitterness in the aftertaste but not nearly enough to balance the syrupy sweetness. Getting through this bottle alone will be a challenge.

AirForceHops (5661) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 18, 2016
650 ml bottle thanks to Adrien. 2013. Slight oxidation marks on the inside of cap. Deep Amber color, carbonation is ok. Aroma is light oak, mild dark fruits and slight oxidation.

The flavor is faded. Weak bourbon, lots of oak upfront. The base is dark fruits and English malts. Body is fuller with a nice smoker carbonation level. Overall for the age it’s ok.

BrettTaylor (725) - 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.
