Bottle at the Shenandoah Throwdown. Pours a lightly hazy brown with a thin white head. Light funky and faint vanilla. Light chocolate. The brett on here is very faint. More vanilla and bourbon and a bit of booze on the finish. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2010
Many, many thanks to Blake for bringing this! Poured rich, deeper brown with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up bright fruity Brett upfront with grass, earthy notes, and clover honey beneath.. warm and sugary, always going back to the Brett. The flavor found bready and fruity sweetness at the core, with fruity Brett, bourbon, and a touch of oak laced throughout.. finished a little tart with nice doses of malt and barrel. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. spicy and drier.. nice flow to it... interesting stuff. deyholla (11755) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle shared by John, thanks! Poured a cloudy reddish brown with a brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of sweet grain, caramel, light fruit and bourbon. Flavor had growing sweet grain and caramel with a bit of light fruit and bourbon. Didn’t really notice any brett characteristics, but still enjoyed the beer.

Bottle shared by iowaherkeye. Thanks. Poured a clear dark orange-brown color with an off white head. Smelled of raisin, toffee, and booze with a fruity Brett note. Medium bodied and slightly sweet. Bourbon, vanilla, caramel, and subdued lemon Pez flavors. hopscotch (11161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle… Pours hazy and caramel-colored with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head that dissipates faster than you can say “quick.” The bouquet is a blend of oaken funk, medium-dry sherry, bourbon, caramel, vanilla and coconut. Medium to full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor is lightly tart and mildly sweet, providing far less caramel and bourbon that the barrel aged base beer. This version is more attenuated than the regular BBA Dipsea . Less body and more carbonation. There is still a load of bourbon flavor without a lot of bourbon heat. A bit thin in places, this version. The finish is sweet and faintly tart with hints of brown south Florida cane sugar and a nice splash of bourbon. Dries out a good bit afterward.

Dark, mohagany wood stained transparency. Nose is a tart experience with some candy sugar highlights and a vinious background. Flavors combine a somewhat chalky barleywine character with a lively brett influence. Nothing comes out as wow, but it all fits together without creating any issues. Hoppy bitterness in the finish but beforehand its pretty mellow and whatnot. Not offensive but not wow.
