FOBAB 09. Pours red/brown with almost no head. Aroma of Jim Beam, woody, caramel malt. Decent flavor, but nothing special compared to the rest of the beers I had this day. Boozy in the flavor. It was cool to see them bring beer from Alaska for this occasion though.

Pours attractive ruddy brown with no head. Nice malt and fruit aroma with some alcohol. The flavor is a bit more bitter and hoppy, bet still malty and dried fruit. Dry finish and smooth mouthfeel.

On tap at Hard Liver 2010 - named the winner at the festival. Deep red pour with a small head, dissipating to a pretty little ring of bubbles. Powerful oak notes, with bourbon and vanilla on the nose. Smells a little hot, but the flavor really does pull through on this one. Lots of wood, but not bourbon - more like fresh-cut oak. I really feel like this is what Angels Share should taste like. It has the complexity (toffee, caramel, vanilla, oak, some fruit, etc.) - but isnt quite as much of a punch-you-in-the-face palate bomb. Really good.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2010 Draft @ Glacier Brewhouse; was eager to try this again after being disappointed by it at Hard Liver; dense brown with foamy white head; malty sugars and caramel with oak, vanilla cookies; winey rich with an almost port-like sweetness; medium body with touch of oxidation; chaulky and dry finish; pretty solid overall and maybe a tad too sweet

Original rating (3.2 overall): draft @ hard liver 09 - with all the buildup, this sucker fell flat on its face IMO; clear, amber, slight white head; lemony hops, woody, light caramel; thin texture, mild flavor profile; eh; as Mike LaFontaine would say, "Wha Happen?"

FoBAB 2008: copper color, no head, tiny off-white bubbles. nose of vanilla, wood, alcohol notes, smoothly blended. the flavor follows the nose, plus sweet and sour fruit notes, and an interesting after-taste that i was unable to pin down (this was a late sample at FoBAB, so i may have been subtly befuddled). medium bodied, dry finish. overall, the beer is too sour for my taste. my program indicates the beer was aged in unspecified "oak wine barrels". i probably would have loved this in a jim beam barrel, as the commercial description allows....

Firey red/orange, minimal head. . . Sweet candied alcohol, strawberries, sweet white grapes. Dry and spicey on the tongue, very similar palate to a dry reisling or pinot griego. Finish is more like beer, slitly bitter, with some raisin malt and grapes, also a very pleasing strawberry flavour and a wonderful balance of malts.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2003
Tap @ Chicago Barrel Aged Beer Festival. Aroma of pineapple, peaches, dry grain and alcohol. Very soft and slightly sweet flavor. Oak and winey grapes become apparent in the flavor. It's sort of odd to me, aging beer in Napa Valley wine barrels, but it was surprisingly good.
