750ml bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.
The beer pours a nice honey color, light amber with touches of orange and light brown when struck by the light. A nice, thick, soapy, white head appears momentarily but dissipates briefly leaving behind no lacing. The aroma starts powerful white chocolate, touches of caramel, light vanilla and oaky bourbon, it's quite smooth, potently rich but very inviting. The flavors are right in line, but a touch more complex, light, sweet chocolate straight away with a ton of caramel flavor behind it, vanilla eases its way behind them nicely, touches of bourbon, chewy oak with some honey and light hoppy citrus at the finish. The flavors meld quite nicely together, providing a nice balance between the strong rich flavors and the lighter more effervescent flavors. The body is a bit thinner than I'd like with a touch more carbonation than anticipated, but it coats the mouth nicely and finishes smoothly.
Verdict: A very nice bourbon barrel beer from The Bruery. While certainly a sweet, sipping beer, the richness is moderately kept in check making this a great beer to share for desert.
