From bomber (limited to 1,800) into snifter pours a dark, deep, rich red brown with a thick tan head and lots of lacing. Smells like autumn, during halftime of a great football game, slight drizzle, piles of leaves burning, pinon smoke billowing from the chiminea, friends hovering around the grill while the marinated brisket cooks. Smooth taste with a bite in the back, a woodsy nut aftertaste but a hoppy front. Exactly what I was hoping for—well done.
22oz bomber shared at a tasting. Big amber beer. Sweet bourbon tones, richer than say..Bells Bourbon Barrel Amber. Rich caramel, amber malt....really leans into the thick malt tones...but clean somehow. Very big. A really enjoyable Winter Warmer style beer via bourbon barrels. hopscotch (11311) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle... Lovely, clear, dark mahogany pour with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Good retention. The bouquet features caramel, bourbon and raw white oak - although the barrel is surely toasted or scorched. Full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet, boasting hops, caramel malt and woodiness, but no real bourbon. Semi-sweet, sticky finish. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2014
amber pour, off white head. Lots of barrel up front! Quite a bit of bourbon, vanilla, oak, charred wood, charcoal, tar and some good hoppy notes suppressed in the background. burg326 (5613) - Florida, USA - APR 7, 2014
Poured a dark amber color from the bottle with aromas of caramel, malt, bourbon and light oak. Flavors were a mix of caramel toffee and bourbon. A solid barrel aged beer. tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Split bottle pour of deep amber, medium to dark brown with khaki head. Nose is bourbon booze an caramel sweetness, light waxy notes. Flavor is malt forward with little to no hop, smooth bourbon and booze. Not a bad drink and fairly smooth for almost eight percent.

P: Dark mahogany body with a dollop of cappuccino froth.
S: Bourbon is definitely the star here. Toasted coconut, vanilla, and toasted oak.
T/M: Roasted barley, bitter cocoa, oak soaked bourbon, light roast coffee and rolled oats. Prickly carbonation in a medium-full body. Finishes bitter and slightly chalky.
O: The bourbon complements nicely and isn’t overpowering. A great way to celebrate a 5 year anniversary.

22 oz Bomber. The aroma hits you first with the wood & bourbon aroma followed by caramel & bread. The taste has a light body with resin & bourbon followed by a pretty flat finish. I feel that the aroma is much stronger than the taste. The is very little after taste & overall it is very well balanced. Not my favorite but a solid effort.
