Bottle at Salud, thanks to whoever shared this! It’s boozy, roasty, with vanilla and bourbon.

Bottle thanks to George. Pours a cloudy copper with medium off white head that lasts. The aroma is dark fruit, bourbon, wood, vanilla. Medium body, caramel, vanilla, nice booze, very good.

On draught at Winking Lizard. The beer pours a dark reddish-amber color with a thin light beige head that disappears quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark malts and bourbon. Full-bodied with a bourbon forward flavor and notes of ripe fruit, caramel malt and vanilla. The finish is boozy with a lingering oaky vanilla aftertaste. Could use more balance but still a pretty good beer.

Growler… O-Town Throwdown Part TresThis beer rocks!… Murky, caramel-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. No retention. The aroma is a malty, earthen marriage of tangy sourmash, oak, vanilla, toffee and caramel. Big, sweet, boozy, bourbon, caramel and malted grain flavor. Full-bodied and syrupy with prickly carbonation. Finishes sticky-sweet, bourbony and woodsy. Cheers to crizay for transporting and sharing his growler of this wonderful bourbon barrel-aged beer!

JW77 hooks it up yet again. Copperish pour. Aroma is full of bourbon, honey, fruit, vanilla and did I mention bourbon? Flavor is sweet and loaded with bourbon and vanilla. NICE!

3fourths (9345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Sample from a growler. Dark brown colored body with a light haziness. Nose is inviting and rich brandy, spicy, sweet, peppery, alcoholic... Big sweet alcoholized brandy pear and plum syrup flavor. Rich and spicy toffee in a thick and oily finish. Awesome stuff.
