COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our brewers added fresh whole vanilla beans to a few select barrels of our Barrel-Aged Brrrbon ’13, an imperial version of our Brrr Seasonal Ale aged in Kentucky Bourbon barrels, for this limited edition brew. The addition of vanilla beans heightens the vanilla character imparted by the barrels, and adds a delicious layer of complexity to the beer’s oak and caramel character, making for a smooth warmer perfect for the season.

MALTS: Pale, Caramel, Carapils, Dark Chocolate
HOPS: Alchemy, Simcoe, Cascade

(bottle - 22 oz) Dark copper pour with a thin white head. Aroma has a lot of bourbon in it followed by some bitter hops and a touch of vanilla. Bourbon fades sadly in the flavor and the hops take over leaving a bitter and slightly sweet aftertaste from the vanilla and bourbon barrel.

Draft at bottlemixx. This beer has it all going on except the vanilla. More vanilla then bourbon. Body and palate are awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Waxed bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours translucent dark copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is vanilla, bourbon and heavy malt. Med + body. Flavor is a little alcohol, vanilla, roasty malt, bourbon, astringent wood. Strong and flavorful stuff. Finishes pretty much toward woody and dry. It is just a little "rough".

(22oz bottle, Winter 2013) Pours a brown body with a medium beige head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, caramel, and wood. Flavor of bourbon, wood, caramel, bread, and vanilla.

Draft. Vanilla brown in color with a vanilla white head. Slightly cloying sweetness. Kinda a sweetness of sugary bomb. A touch of astringent wood tannins. Meh

Ericular (1036) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2014
On tap @ Brick’s Pub. Mild aroma with some bourbon and maybe a little vanilla. Taste is boozy, malty with caramel - hardly any vanilla. Vanilla more evident in retronasal. Expected more vanilla!

From bomber. Pours a murky brown/copper with just a touch of head. Very mild aroma hinting of vanilla and bourbon. The vanilla takes a commanding presence in the taste - well above any other flavor. If you are as big of a fan of vanilla as I am of chocolate, you'll love this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kathouse (1932) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pretty amber color with nice off white head. Oak and vanilla aromas mask a malty base. Caramel malts, oak, and alcohol mix is satisfying yet not quite ecstasy.

jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2014
On tap at Bier Station. Pours a brown color with white head. Bourbon, vanilla, caramel, oak, malty aromas and flavors. Alright.

3.2
cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2014
on tap, pours a cloudy hazy plum color with a thin thick head that laces well. nice bold nose of oak and alcohol and malt. attack is a bit sweet, more like a barley wine. finish is a bit wet and muddy. still a good beer.
