Served in a pokal glass

L - This beer pours very dark brown in color with some ruby highlights when held to a light source. It was topped with an inch of tan head. There is virtually no lacing.

S - The smell consists of vanilla and caramel, some usual culprits in a bourbon barrel aged beer. The are some hints of alcohol, too.

T - The taste is quite good. The caramel and vanilla combine for a sweet treat, while detracting the palate from the ever present alcohol taste. I ever get some earthy oak flavors.

M - Medium and velvety smooth.

O - This is better than I imagined. To me it has a similar flavor profile to a barrel aged wee heavy. Wolverine State does a fantastic job brewing lagers. The more I try from them, the more I like them.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 10/2014. Pours nearly opaque very dark brown color with a 2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big chocolate, caramel, toffee, toast, raisin, brown bread, vanilla, coconut, oak, bourbon, and oak/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and bourbon barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big chocolate, caramel, toffee, toast, raisin, brown bread, vanilla, coconut, oak, bourbon, and oak/toasted earthiness. Light tannic oaky bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, toffee, toast, raisin, brown bread, vanilla, coconut, oak, bourbon, and oak/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt and bourbon barrel flavors; with an awesome malt/barrel balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome barrel aged doppelbock style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and bourbon barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
