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.

sonnycheeba (4192) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 17, 2015
2012 bottle. Pours mostly clear brown. Aroma is bourbon, oak, bready malts, faint caramel, and faint dark fruit notes. Flavor is bourbon and water on the rocks; heavy booze taste without much beer character there to balance things out; perhaps this bottle wasn’t aged in the proper conditions. Medium body.
