COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hidden in the beautiful dark amber color are aromas of vanilla and caramel that compliment perfectly the presence of bourbon. Soft oak flavors transition into a sweet yet slightly dry finish. After aging the ale for four months, the malt and hop complexity of Brrr has melded harmoniously with the bourbon barrels and become a truly one of a kind beer.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 reminds me of kentucky bourbon ale more than brrr. if you like bourbon you’ll like this beer. if not, why are you trying it. not a ton of balance, or a ton of the original beer coming through. but it’s sweet aroma of vanilla and oak and peppery bourbon in the flavor are quite nice. i’ll probably have to revisit this side by side with Brrr.

zoucrew102 (1922) - - NOV 24, 2016
Bomber, 2010 vintage. Rich caramel malt aroma with notes bourbon, vanilla and oak. Pours cloudy caramel colored with a thin white head that has little retention and lacing. Starts with caramel malt flavor with a little bit of vanilla. Finishes smooth with bourbon and oak flavors and a touch of booziness at the very end. Pretty nice winter ale.

22 oz bottle shared by Gustav. The pour is a thin caramel tinted amber with a thick bubbly egg shell colored collar. The aroma is pretty decent. There is a sweet malt and a string hop. Light vanilla and bourbon are present. There is a hint of metallic on the back end. The flavor is interesting. There is a big malt and some light hops. It’s like a subdued Bigfoot. I like it. The hops are toned down and the sweetness comes through a little more. The mouth feel is lighter and well carbonated. The aftertaste is all sweet malt, bourbon, and a hint of vanilla and oak. Interesting brew

ebone1988 (1971) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20 and Gus. 2013 vintage. Aroma is caramel, toffee, bourbon, barrel, hops. Appearance is dark red, copper brown, light tan head. Taste is very subtle. Some caramel, toffee, some earthy hops, some booze, mostly intensely subtle. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, some booze and caramel in the aftertaste. Overall, I’d say this is past it’s prime. Good, but not great.
