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.

Look - dark brownish red with a good slightly tan head with constant bobbles
Smell - bourbon and sweet carmel. You can smell the booze.
Taste - sweet Carmel and bourbon barrel wood. Slightly toasty.
Feel - medium body with medium carbonation. Pretty smooth and creamy.
Overall - fantastic bb Amber!

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.
