12 oz bottle poured into a nonic.
7.5% ABV, 30 IBUs, no date.

A - Poured in fully, the pint fills with tiny particles which haze the rusty colored beer. It's short, dense creamy head floats on the beer with staying power and leaves wispy lace all over the pint.

S - It's time in the barrels compounded with the nature of the beer creates a big vanilla aroma that smells like fresh vanilla custard. Subtle spicy bourbon hints develop around smooth malt, kettle caramelization, toffee, butterscotch, and faint earthy hop notes.

T - Smooth warming, sticky caramel malt meets Munich breadiness with subtle toffee and vanilla interaction. Dry oak and earthy hops lead into a new dimension that offer smooth bourbon alcohol notes.

M - Creamy and smooth, this malty amber features a medium body with complimentary dry, and faint bitterness that's further rounded out by soothing, warming bourbon alcohol.

O - Short aging in barrels gives Louie's Demise a special new twist of subtle warming alcohol and traces of bourbon with vanilla tannins which give the already sweet and smooth malty beer a creamy, dessert-like flavor. A nice offering from Milwaukee!
