3.25/5 rDev -10%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Appearance - Clear amber with a wispy white head.
Smell - Whiskey, alcohol, molasses, and some flowery hops.
Taste - Lots of sweetness and alcohol, plus a fair amount of oak. The bourbon really comes through as well.
Mouthfeel - Medium body and low carbonation.
Notes - It may have been unfair of me to review this beer since I'm not a fan of bourbon (I prefer Irish whiskey). It's a bit impressive how much bourbon character they managed to impart; I was expecting it to be more subtle. I remember Brrr as being pretty hoppy so I was expecting more hop presence, but I guess the aging process killed it. I would recommend this beer to a bourbon lover, but others should probably pass.
