A rare bird release: 2015 La Mort Bourbon is one of our finest, award winning aged ales. This beer is a member of our Corbeaux Series and historically has been very sought after. This is the first vintage appearing in bottles. La Mort Bourbon is born from a marriage between La Petite Mort and freshly emptied Kentucky bourbon barrels. In La Mort Bourbon, we use multiple specialty malts to create a rich, complex beer and then follow with maturation in American oak bourbon barrels. 11.2% ABV. This fine ale has been aged (one year) and is ready to drink. No further cellar time is required.

375 ml bottle from Tavour, vintage 2016. Nose is light bourbon, vanilla, candisugar, and golden raisins. Lightly hazy amber brown with a medium, heavy lacing, beige head. Flavor is lightly sweet with vanilla and bourbon accents. Really nice.

Very dark with a beige head. Bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark fruit, candies brown sugar, and lightly toasted dough. Full bodied. Plenty of bourbon in the finish. Not as boozy as I thought. Very well done.

375 ml bottle. Pours a dark clear brown with light head. Aromas of brown sugar, bourbon, and sweet toasted malts. Flavors of brown sugar syrup, oak and bourbon. Nice but the bourbon is overwhelming.

Nice Vanilla and bourbon notes with a tapioca tone. Good sweet smooth finish without being cloying. Overall a good example of a bourbon barrel aged beer.

Waxed bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours a reddish brown color with almost no head. Smells like straight smooth bourbon to me. Rich caramel, dark fruit, and wood flavor. Tastes much lighter than 11.2 to me, though the aroma suggests otherwise. Dominant, yet smooth flavor. Delicious cookie finish. Solid stuff.

Bottle pour at home, dark amber pour, lot of wood, bourbon aroma. Sweet taste, definitely needs some age, some licorice, caramel, chocolate, very smooth drinking beer, some ABV is present. Definitely want to age a bottle a year or even longer to see how it blends out.

after4ever (8020) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Draft at EBP. Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and creamy light tan head that sticks around forever. Very boozy nose, showing apricotty bourbon notes as well as probably some of the base beers alcohol payload. Caramel, vanilla, and some bubblegummy esters there as well, but mostly bourbon and twang. Thick sticky body with soft carb. Caramel, bubblegum, vanilla, and tons of bourbon on the mid palate. Way more intensely weighted toward the barrel and less toward the base beer, at least this batch at this vintage.

On tap @ Beer Junction. Pours semi-translucent cola brownish with thin cream colored head. Aroma is rich oaky chocolatey malt and huge sweet bourbon. Taste is light bodied roasty milk chocolate malt with big cocoa flavors. Bourbon flavor and heat comes on at the back, quite balanced with the malt. Impressively rich flavor relative to the thin body on this. Not much Belgian yeast that I can pick out either. Still, the bourbon does wonders for this and really accentuates the rich malts.
