Served in a tulip at WOB Tempe. Surprised me with its power and then it's flavor. A delicious craft that reflects bourbon barrel aging without overpowering booze taste. A Belgian character without being a Belgian beer. Will order again and again. I feel the 9 percent without tasting it.

St. Bottle

SM. I get an oaky and abundant vanilla note

T. Everything you smell you taste. It hits you wih a sweet vanilla flavor followed by a
solid oaky alcohol flavor.

O. This is a solid barley wine, but I don't know why it's not advertised that way?! The 1 pint 6fl. is probably a bit too much. I would prefer this if it were in a 4 pack 12oz, much like old stock ale which I would recommend before this beer.

a real showcase of bourbon barrels here. tons of vanilla, sweetness, wood, and warming alcohol in this brick red colored brew with extraordinary depth. shortish off white head caps off a dark and intriguing brew. the nose here is heavily oaked, with notes of dried cherries and brown sugar. i smell a little alcohol too, but nothing out of place. sweeter red malt starts the flavor trip, but its mellowed nicely by all the oak, which now gets a bit more nuanced with char, must, and tremendous vanilla character. layers of grain and wood compliment each other well, and all the residual sugar i anticipated from the nose is about gone, or at least not slowing this down at all. a very cool beer, soaked with rich bourbon flavors but still being rather drinkable, i could take down a bomber of this without a worry. decadent mouthfeel with just a tickle of booze and a very long finish like warm bread pudding. one of marbles best beers, i hope they make it back to colorado before long, i think they have all brought something unique to the table.
