COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This noble brown winter beer with fiery reflections offers a complex aroma of fruit, alcohol and hops. Once tasted, it is slightly sweet with a hint of burnt caramel. Aged in American oak barrels, the bitterness has eased and it has wooden notes topped with a subtle touch of vanilla. A maderisation occurred after maturation in the barrel (aged one year), and the textures and flavors blend, becoming sweeter.

RBJG2. Dark amber. Aroma is funky and boozy, bit of caramel, coconut. Taste is boozy, coconut again. Sweet, very nice. I don’t like coconut but have recently had two beers that taste like it and have really liked both. Weird.

Bottle with Tim and Bill pours hazy brown, light head, and lacing. Notes of plum, toffee, peat wood, sweet malts, mineral water, sugar, vanilla and more dark fruits. Medium to full body. Smooth for the alcohol pct.

À l’oeil : C’est ma première bière vieillie, donc j’ai été surpris par la couleur étrange brun-vert, le côté trouble et l’absence de mousse. C’est pas un super visuel mais c’est le style ! Au nez : Nez léger de caramel et de sucre de canne. Au nez, cette bière semble plus avoir été vieillie en fût de rhum que de bourbon. Au goût : Sensation d’amertume et de chaleur de spiritueux ! Raisin, alcool se mélangent puissament. La texture y est presque granuleuse et la finale agréablement alcoolisée. Une bière pour adulte !

GothGargoyle (2587) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2013
Dark brown with a good sized off-white head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is palm sugar, dates, butterscotch, honey, raisins, hint of bourbon. Slick mouthfeel, smooth on the palate, sweet sticky finish. Taste is brown sugar, butterscotch, dates, raisins, shortbread, bourbon. Like a butter tart beer, love it!

Damn I almost feel like I owe Mike my life after tonight. Thanks Mike. Off the top Bourbon oak maple dark fruit burnt caramel. Killer aroma. Definitely whisky forward. A sweet fruity mellowness that is really enjoyable. Strong alcohol notes. A gentleman’s beer. Harsh sharp dry finish. Great beer!

Has anything bad ever come out of a bourbon barrel? Thanks Dominic for this beauty. Pours a rich and full prune color. Aromas of bourbon and vanilla, brown sugar and caramel. Awesome. Sweet vanilla and caramel flavors at first then some dried fruit and a warm boozy finish as it goes down. World class.

Bottle from local IGA. Thanks Jo. Aroma: caramel, bourbon, sugar. App: dark brown with small tan head. Smooth, medium sweetness, finish is alcohol. Overall: wow. What a nice finish on the bourbon! Really enjoyed it. The bourbon barrel aged really adds a lot to this beer.
