Bottle at the Rate Beer Awards Festival Bottle Share. Big coffee in the nose, sugar, vanilla, maybe maple syrup, and bourbon. Sweet falvors of vanilla, bourbon, cocoa, cola. Almost flat. A bit too sweet and somewhat 1-dimensionally driven by the additives.

Bottle shared during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Cheers! Pours oily black-brown with a tan foam head. The aroma holds milk chocolate, light coffee. Rich flavor, moderately sweet, with nice chocolate and creamy coffee character. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, with light warmth, continuing hearty cocoa, milky coffee, mellow earthy bitterness. Solid. dmac (6264) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Bomber from ksurkin, thanks bro. Poured a pitch black silky body with a tiny ass light beige head. Aroma is sweet sugary bourbon, dark fruit skins, sugary, plum and prune, seems almost vinous, burnt marshmallows. Flavor isnt as sweet, burnt toast, dark fruits, sweet bourbon, very light sweet coffee notes. Medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Solid but hoping for more.

Oh, another amazing beer by Alewerks? Didn’t see that coming. This is like desert in a bottle. Aroma is huge amounts of chocolate, coffee, bourbon, and vanilla. Absolutely dark as night. This tastes like someone took a piece of chocolate cake and drowned it in coffee, vanilla then poured bourbon all over it to finish it off. It’s absolutely delicious. It’s sweet but not cloying. I can see something like this getting way too sweet and rich, but the bourbon cuts that. The said bourbon isn’t overpowering. I’m not a huge fan of bourbon barrel beers, but this one and their bourbon barrel porter are both excellent. This one isn’t as heavy on the bourbon as the porter in my opinion. Overall this is a solid BBS. I love the beers Alewerks brews, I’m glad they’re so consistent. Cheers. weihenweizen (3827) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Brow bomber, bottled on June 30, 2015 at Rustico Ballston. Black with very small beige head. Aroma is roasty & Bourbon, thick body, creamy texture, medium carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is roasty, bourbon, dark chocolate, some vanilla, and dry finish. This good, but really heavy. ajnepple (6622) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Sampled at Great American Beer Festival 9/24/15. Nice, rich coffee aroma. The flavor adds chocolate, lactose, vanilla, light oak and a hint of bourbon. Tasty.
