look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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.
