Louie's Resurrection was not the worst bourbon barrel aged beer I have had, but it probably falls near the bottom of the list. I had the base beer before the barrel aged version, and I like the base beer better. Go look at my review if you do not believe me.

The beer was a darker amber color than the base beer. The aroma was dominated be alcohol and vanilla, with the whiskey seemingly trying to burn my nose hairs. This is a bad sign from the start. In the initial taste, one gets a sour malty taste. The toasty malts that I liked in the base beer are gone. The alcohol from the bourbon barrel aging stings the tongue like a shot of whiskey. Malt seems to be a little more apparent as the burn continues into the aftertaste. There is some potential here, but I am not certain Milwaukee chose the best beer to barrel age in an amber ale.

12oz bottle served in a globe. Bottled in 2012

A- Pours a hazy amber color with a one finger, fast, white head. Good retention and lacing.

S- Bourbon, vanilla, toffee, leather, some oak, brown sugar and figs.

T- Smooth sweet bourbon. Little bit of oak tannin's. Vanilla, caramel and molasses.

M- Medium body, smooth finish. Leaves the sweet vanilla flavor of bourbon in your mouth. Good carbonation.

O- I got this as an extra with about 2 years on it. Not to sure what its like fresh but not bad with a little age. Solid barrel aged offering that characterizes the bourbon more than the barrel.

Shared by CaptainCougar at GT's going away tasting. Thanks Tom.

The beer is amber hued with a small, off white head. The aroma offers malt, vanilla, sweet fruits, alcohol. Fairly sweet with some butterscotch throughout. Bourbon character is mild. Pretty drinkable and certainly interesting. Worth a try.

a deep amber in color with a finger of white fluffy head. smells very malt forward, bready and vanilla notes.. very subtle bourbon smell.

the taste is mostly bourbon but very palateable. lots of vanilla notes mainly from the bourbon barrels, mixed in with a nice amber ale profile of malty sweetness. a slight citrus hop feel is present in the aftertaste.

medium in body, low carbonation. this is a wonderful tasting beer. it's like drinking a lightly carbonated very soft bourbon.
