3.58/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours slightly hazed copper with a fluffy lasting head. Plenty of lacing sticks.

The smell is of bourbon/wood and caramel.

The taste is of strong bourbon, wood, booze. A vague fruitiness and toast balance some of the sweetness, though it remains sweet.

It has soft carbonation. The body is medium. A fuller body may cover the alcohol more. There is a certain amount of creaminess to it.

An amber ale with strong bourbon. A nice sipper of an amber ale blended with bourbon.

I recently had this on draft at Milwaukee Ale House. I've had it previously and while good, it wasn't something I would call out to specifically recommend. I knew something was different immediately when I tasted this year's version. Upon further inspection of the menu and talking to the bartender, it seems like MKE upped the octane this year to 10.2% ABV. You can definitely taste the barrel more than ever before. It recently won Gold at FoBAB according to the menu.

Thanks to Tom for this one!

Slightly hazed reddish copper color, plenty of lacing, drippy crown of thorns pattern around the rim of the glass. Tiny micro sediment is visible suspended in the glass.

Aroma is big on caramel and vanilla, fairly sweet but pretty good.

Body is pretty light, but big on flavor. Huge malt, sticky on the lips, vanilla, and light booze as it warms up. Eh, sort of falls apart as it warms up. Worth a try but not the best.
Edit 11/16: this apparently won a medal at FoBAB... Wonder if it was a new batch or special barrel or something.

Pours a frothy, tan head. Soft, sweet malt aroma with vanilla notes. Starts with a really sweet, Doppelbock-esque flavor. Builds into a really nice sweet maltiness with a touch of bourbony vanilla. Finish is malt with a touch of vanilla.

Wow. This is pretty fantastic. It's like a Doppelbock and amber ale had a baby that was put in a bourbon barrel.
