3.48/5 rDev -9.1%
On tap the day after Churchill's Renaissance at Churchill's Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.
Pours a slightly murky dark honey orange with no head and no lace. Smell is of orange liqueur, bourbon, and wood. Taste is very bourbon forward with slight orange liqueur flavors and a woody finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty interesting barrel aged beer that almost tastes like straight bourbon with some citrus notes.

On tap at Churchill's. Snifter.
A: Pours near still with a fast fading white head. The color is a dirty dark orange with some transparency.
S: Caramel and a monstrous bourbon profile. The nose has a candied quality to it with a little vanilla. Light citrus notes remind me of orange and grapefruit.
T: Candied caramel with brown sugar and lots of bourbon. Light oak and vanilla are evident. This is very sweet. Alcohol is evident but not offensive.
M: Medium body with low carbonation.
Overall: A nice barrel aged Belgian Strong. I dig the bourbon profile.

Reviewed from notes taken during Bootlegger's 3rd Anniversary Party last weekend.
A: Pours a hazy orangish brown with just a couple of bubbles clinging to the glass edge.
S: Honey, bourbon-boozy, faintly sweet fruits.
T: Carmel sweetness, oak, slight char, boozy.
M: Heavy and thick and flat.
O: Could still use more time even though it is aged 30 months in barrels. Interesting and glad to have tried it.

On-tap at Bootlegger's
A: The pour is a slightly hazed light brown/dark amber color with a thin ring of white foam.
S: The nose has very intense bourbon aromas which are almost hot. The bourbon and the barrel, however, have provided some very nice vanilla, caramel, oak, and char notes. The base beer is almost completely masked, though.
T: For as much bourbon as the nose exhibits, the flavor is extremely well balanced. The base beer really comes through and provides some nice fruity notes of pear and apple. The bourbon barrel gives the vanilla and oak notes and provides a bit of warmth.
M: The body is medium to full with a low to moderate level of carbonation.
D: I was expecting this to be a booze bomb from the nose, but the flavor is surprisingly well balanced. I'm not the hugest fan of Golden Chaos, but the barrels have done some good work on this one.
