icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle (bottled 5/2012)
Aroma: Vanilla, alcohol, dark malts
Appearance: Clean, dark reddish/brown with slightly off white head
Taste: Caramel, vanilla, alcohol, dark fruit
Palate: Medium body, slightly on the chewy side. Mouth numbing alcohol.
Overall: Really nice... the lighter base allows the bourbon barrel to come out, and also makes this easier drinking. Really pleasantly surprised in terms of overall taste and complexity.

A barrel aged lager, ok. Pours a hazy brownish red with no real head or lacing. Aroma is whiskey, vanilla, oak, and sweet toffee. Taste follows, exactly what you would expect from a barrel aged doppelbock. No real booziness except from the bourbon, which is nice.

Batch 2 5/25/2012. Poured into point glass, makes me wish I had a snifter. Pour is cherry Amber. Head disappeared quick. Malty nose with caramel and some vanilla somewhere and alcohol. Bold bourbon highlights accent a pleasingly mellow body that is barleywine-esk. This will hit hard with 10.83%. Way you easy to drink. I know I shouldnt, but I judge beers by their labels. This one just looked too cool and artsy and in my experience so far Ive been more impressed with their at than their beer. Ive found an exception. Cool art, great beer. Also just read that this is nonprofit? To defend and honor last forms of art and culture leading the renaissance in Brooklyns historic concert island neighborhood. Cool

Batch 2. Bottle dated 5/25/2012, so about a year on this one. Pours deep reddish brown with a yellowish brown hues head. Looks like a thick barleywine. Aroma is huge vanilla, bourbon, caramel, toffee and maye even licorice. Crazy nose. Taste follows with huge vanilla noted and some alcohol warmth that is nicely mellow. Bit of licorice and toffee and pretty sweet but not cloying. This surprised the hell out of me. Wow. Medium heavy mouthfeel (not quite barleywine thick) with low to medium carbonation that keeps it from being syrupy. Very impressed here with unbelievable barrell infusion.

Tap at Dexters. Unfiltered deep brown. Sweet bourbon barrel flavor, rich and resinous, but never quite overwhelming. Vanilla, amber, woody caramel tones. Brown sugar, molasses. Big and full bodied, a beast of a beer. Tasty.

Clear copper color with small head and decent lacing. Big sweet malt aroma with some woody character. Also some herbal tea aroma and brown sugar. Taste same as aroma with dark brown sugar and toasted malt with vanilla from barrel and alcohol flavor Full oily mouthfeel that finishes sweet. Nice big Dopplebock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
