375 ml corked and caged bottle. Only cellared about 3 months. Deep ruby color, low carbonation. Aroma is molasses, raisins, vanilla, bourbon. Flavor is caramel, molasses, lots of vanilla leading to bourbon, and finishing with a bit of oak dryness. Mild lingering raisins.egajdzis (6833) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2017
Alcohol is not overwhelming but here in the form of warming after the sip. the Bock character remains under the barrel treatment. The body is a tad thin but... No matter, the flavor is just wonderful.
Brown color with a small head, no lacing on the glass. Caramel malts, roast, nuts, wood, vanilla, bourbon. Thinner mouthfeel. Chalumeaux (1850) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2017
Poured from bottle caramel brown with a one finger khaki head that fades slowly with nice lacing. Nice carbonation and medium bodied. Light malty bourbon nose, flavor is dark fruit, sweet malt, bourbon and hints of molasses, toffee, and caramel. ABV is well hidden. Well crafted beer. jimhilt (2636) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 26, 2017
Pours a one finger khaki head that fades slowly to a ring leaving no lace. Clear deep amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light malty bourbon nose and flavor is dark fruit, sweet malt, bourbon and hints of molasses. Higher ABV, 10.8%, is hidden.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 Pours dark chestnut with a light head that quickly dissipate. Has an aroma of bourbon along with raisins. Taste is similar to the original Troegenator, aftertaste is where the bourbon aging shows up. A good beer, but not materially better than the original.

375 ml bottle from Cappy’s. Pours a clear reddish copper brown color with a large fluffy yellowish beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, dark fruits, bourbon, vanilla, mild wood, light roast and hints of chocolate, good. keepersj12 (3142) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2017
A hazy dark brown Pour with a big tan head that settles quickly. The aroma is sour, not at all what I was expecting. The flavor is more what I was expecting. Oak and vanilla. Lots of dark fruit. The whiskey comes thru and the throat burns on the swallow. The finish had a bit of a bite yet it's quite mellow. Excellent
