"I’m not sure the vanilla imparted by the barrels NEEDED to be heightened. Kinda like the vanilla BCS in my mind. Not bad, just not neccesary. Tasty, but if anything takes away a tad of complexity from the non-vanilla version(s)." ClutchMasterson (64) - Aiea, Hawaii, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Poured at a bar when I saw this randomly. Pours a nice deep nut brown. Leaves a creamy of white thick head which didn’t fade hardly and left a nice heavy lacing. Aroma is of vanilla and light resin with notes of roasty nuts and malt. Taste is a really nice lightly sweet but roasty caramel and vanilla with a sturdy malt flavor. The back reaches you witha surprisingly balanced slight floral hop flavor with just the right amount of bitterness. A definite gem to find on draft and very enjoyable.

Bomber ONLY from Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting circa 4Q 2013 and roughly $10.00. Pours hazy dark brown with balanced vanilla, roast dark malts, cacao, and a balanced finish. This was better than the ginger, and a beer I wish I had more of. improvjock (328) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark opaque brown with tan head. Both aroma and taste consist mainly of bourbon and vanilla. A bit oaky with a very smooth finish. I love this beer; it’s expensive, but really good. Great for a special occasion or to just sit back, sip, and enjoy. mnoud (318) - Martinsburg, West Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2014
2014.03.30 - Widmer Brothers Banilla Barrel Aged Brrrbon - on tap at Dan's.
Very tasty, almost dangerously smooth. You can definitely taste vanilla but it is not near anything I'd call a dessert beer.
Overall, about as expected. Repeat purchase worthy. Cybercat (5832) - Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Pours a beautiful clear chestnut with a fairly thick and rather fine-bubbled light tan head. Malty aroma has firm notes of bourbon-soaked wood and caramel, plus a tantalizing hint of vanilla. Oaky bourbon dominates the bold flavor while letting through hints of caramel, vanilla, chocolate and horehound. Firm, smooth texture has a good amount of fizz and leaves a woody, bourbony, slightly candy-bar finish. This will take the brrr out of chilly weather next time one of them winter storms pays a visit.

On tap at Toronado. Pour is murky brown with a very small tan head. Aroma has subtle hints of vanilla and bourbon but it is pretty faint. Flavor is of vanilla, oak, malt, caramel, and a bit of heat.
