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.

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!

Beautiful red/copper color is it's only redeeming quality. It is truly beautiful to look at. Alcohol comes off like cough medicine. Looks like previous versions of this were 7.5%, this one is 10.2%. While I'm a big fan of bourbon barrel beers, this one is not one I would seek out.

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.
