mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2011
22 oz. bottle, pours a dark amber with a small tan head. Aroma is like a sherry, with caramel, dark fruits, boozy liqueurs and some wood. Flavour is quite sweet, with sweet sherry / brandy, caramel, candied sugar and some faint wood (though the barrels are not so pronounced in this aspect). A little cloying in sweetness, but quite solid. Actually enjoyed the original Human Blockhead more.

Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. Pours very dark amber/brown with a 3 finger foamy beige head. Aromas of dark fruits, vanilla and oak? Full bodied. Foamy carb. Flavor is quite bourbon, with some dark fruit and nuts, but itís alcohol and bourbon, primarily. Almost a cola touch. Oak astringency is very light. Finish is mildly sweet. It really tastes very good.

Served on draft at Timberwood Grill Charlottesville, VA. Pours a very slightly hazy copper color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Huge whisky notes in the aroma with notes of wood, coconut and toasted malts. The taste is sweet malts, raisin, wood, berries, whisky and toasted malts. Very whisky forward but still manages to be well balanced. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Better than I was expecting.

I love Buffalo Trace bourbon. That should be the whole review, but Iíll expand. Didnít know this was aged in BT barrels when i bought it, but damn was i happy about it. the beer exists only to accentuate the awesomeness of buffalo trace. maybe the most bourbon prevelant beer iíve had, so a bit of a one trick pony, but damn, was it tasty!"
