On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark, clear brown, with a small half inch head, and only a little bit of lacing.

Smells like plums, raisins, bourbon, vanilla, oak, and bourbon.

The bourbon flavor in this is incredibly well-integrated, very smooth, and mixes well with the vanilla, oak, caramel, brown sugar, figs, light chocolate. The ABV and booze is hidden incredibly well, just so smooth. Oh my god.

Medium bodied, could be slightly thicker I suppose. Low carbonation, creamy smooth mouthfeel.

This might have been better than any of the Framinghammer variants, this was just incredible.

Poured from a 64 oz Jack's Abby growler into a pilsner glass.

A: Pours a deep reddish brown with about half a finger of light tannish head.

S: A faint smell of vanilla, bourbon, oak and some malts. Couldn't really pick up much of anything else, maybe some raisins or figs. Nothing too potent.

T: Caramel malts up front with some dark fruits such as raisins and figs. The oak, vanilla and bourbon come through in the finish. There is a slight tinge of boozyness occasionally but the 9% is masked pretty well. Very good stuff here.

M: Despite the barrel aging of this brew, you can definitely tell it's a lager. It has the clean finish even though it's medium bodied. Quite smooth and enjoyable.

Overall: This is a damn good brew. I came into this with no expectations because I had never tasted or even heard of a barrel aged doppelbock. Jack's Abby does not disappoint with this one. This brew is extremely sweet as a doppelbock should be and even more sweet because of the bourbon. The bourbon does a great job playing off of the caramel malts and dark fruits. Jack's Abby really sets the bar when it comes to lagers. Great brew.
