this is better than its ratings. people should know, that according to the label only a portion of this beer was actually aged in bourbon barrels, then blended in, so its intentionally subtle, and i for one like and respect that approach to this. its got all the vanilla and bourbon character you could want in the finish, but it doesnt dominate the whole experience. it lets all the chocolate malt and a hint of coconut come out. lighter in color than expected, it is indeed a brown, not anything darker, and the roast profile is moderate at best. i like its lightness though, and think it shows another side of the bourbon barrel thing, which is the complimentary flavors of the spirit and the chocolate malt. its so often lost to the oak itself or the heavy roast or the alcohol content, and i think this beer does a nice job with all elements together. a little more body would be alright by my, but the carbonation is nice and the finish is appropriately long and mellow. its a little something different, and i like that.

Very accessible bba beer, no boozy heat because its only 6% abv. Easy to find and inexpensive in WI. I like this beer, but its not nearly as big as i hoped it would be. Then again I can drink more than just one of these in a night.

Pours with 1-2 fingers of head, and an auburn/brown color.
Taste has a bit of coconut, not much bourbon here.
Goes down smooth and easy, not what i expected but I like it.

Not really brown this pours a more auburn like color. The nose is a light divide between barrel and brown. I catch some barley malt, chocolate malt, creamy coconut, vanilla and brownie batter. The flavor is light and the feel a bit thin but it tastes quite good. Coconut is prominent with chocolate malts, brownie, light vanilla, butterscotch and an oak wood. Not a bad choice when looking for a cheaper barrel aged beer.
