COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bourbon Barrel Soaked Sustenance Beer is our spring Schwarzbier (black lager) aged in bourbon barrels for 10 months. It features rich roasted malt qualities with bold flavors of vanilla, charred oak, and even a slight nuttiness. The light, crisp finish makes this bourbon soaked beer light in flavor, which is wonderful because it highlights the complexities of the bourbon aging process. The light body also makes it an ideal beer for a springtime refreshment.

from Erzbierschof - black beer under a long lasting dark beige foam; strong woody aroma, notes of roasted malts, licorice and black cherries; fairly astringent, a good malt body, a subtle carbonation and a strong bitterness; heavy woody notes in the finish; pretty dry with more licorice, chocolate and whisky notes

thewolf (12949) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Aarhus.
Deep brown to black with a medium, fairly creamy, beige head. Aroma has heavy vanilla caramel sweetness, almost like Werthers Echte. Rye bread, oak, sweet toffee. Lowish carbonation, fat and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour has surprisingly little toffee - there is some, but fairly subdued. Heavy oak at first, roasted malts,lots of vanilla, milky chocolate, dry and roasted. Very nice, even if the aroma is a bit much. And the original was better.

3.6
Pinball (12601) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2010
clear brown, smooth offwhite yellowish head. aroma is nutty, roasted grains, licorice flavor is licorice, wood (barrel aged notes) , roasted rains. well balanced, well tasting i’d say imperial stout, not schwarzbier. barrel aged notes dominate.

3.9
deyholla (12590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2010
On tap. Poured a very dark brow with an off-white head that lasted and laced. Aroma had plenty of sweet bourbon notes with underlying sweet and dark grains. Flavor was similar with plenty of sweet bourbon that blended well with sweet grains and a bit of chocolate.
