GABF. Another good Rocket beer at the fest. Sweet and fruity hops on the flavor and the aromas. More malty on the finish. Some alcohol. Very good. aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Lots of alcohol with some mild phenols present. Ripe fruit and brown sugar up front leading to mild astringency and alcoholic heat. Muddled hot finish. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2007

I would like to rerate this beer.
Smooth and full bodied. Mostly caramel but the hops come through nicely. Smooth bitter finish. Well balanced.

GABF 2007. Smooth brew. Alcohol is well hidden. Oak and bourbon presence very evident. Excellent. jmcguire1969 (162) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2007
My Favorite at GABF 2007. Had this one in the middle of my GABF evening and it POPPED my taste buds into a frenzy. Great balance between the hops and malts. Nice amber malts come through with a nice added bitterness from the rye. Not sure what the ABV is but since Booster is part of the name assume it a big one...I could not tell.

On Tap at Toro 20th Anniversary party. I have to say that this was one of the highlights of the "special" beers on tap - but I’m a big fan of barrel aged beers. Pours dark with little head. Aroma is woody with quite a bit of bourbon (it’s aged in Wild Turkey barrels). Very smooth beer with woody stout flavors. Aftertaste lingers a bit. Good stuff. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Draft. aged in Wild Turkey Barrels. Ruby beer with a small light tan head. Rich molasses, malt aroma, woth some whiskey. Rich malty, whiskey flavor with some molasses. Full bodied. Lingering rich malt and whiskey. Alcohol present. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2007
This beer smells like whiskey. Plain and simple. Pours black with no head. Looks like motor oil in a sense. Many flavors come out in this one. I got black licorice, whiskey, raisin, dried fruit, roasty malt, and tons of alcohol. Extremely unique. Obviously is meant to be sipped because this is thick. Lingering alcohol and smoky sweetness is present.
