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.

Bomber. Hazy red-brown pour with a short white head leaving scattered lace. Nose is alcohol and sweet malt. Bourbon is evident from start to finish, but itís never overpowering (I donít care for bourbon) and really adds to this special brew. Licorice, dates, vanilla, caramel populate this heavy body. Light carbonation, the hops add a spice and resin near the finish. There is a touch of oaky umami in the middle, but itís only a hint. long after the finish you get a stomach warmth just as you do with liquor. Drink cool at most. More drinkable than AB/DB or any of their oaked variants, would need to compare directly to LB to pick a winner.

exeter (438) - 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 doesnít 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!

magicmn (106) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 8, 2015
Bottled at Hophead. Light brown colour. Sweet vanilla aroma with alcohol notes. Similar taste with additional maltyness and some neutral hop bitterness. Intensive enough aftertaste.

bergstaden (1510) - RÝros, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2015
Amber with off white head - Malts in the aroma with some wood - Raw wood and some vanilla flavours - Wood goes into the finish - This was too much woody flavour to be good, a little bit disapointed over this one

PorterPounder (5878) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber - Fire Sale at $3.99. slightly murky medium orange pour, thinnish off-white head. Aroma has a solid bourbon presence, some date-like fruitiness and a touch of molasses. Flavor follows along the the same profile, nice bourbon accents, brown sugar, molasses. Nice sticky mouthfeel. Not overwrought like some Bourbon BA beers tend to be.

katrinaez (240) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2015
It was a good bourbon barrel. Not the best. The light flavor made it best. Sometimes a bourbon is done just for the hell of it. This had substance. The beer itself was quality. Of course hubby hated it. I thought he might like it since the bourbon was light...I was wrong.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, thanks to Mike H. Big aromatic bourbon nose, malty, vanilla, coconut. The bourbon barrel aging gives this beer a nail polish, hot alcohol character.
