I confess I have not been a huge fan of this beer in the past, but the recent version (sampled on tap at Growler Nations last night) was flat out outstanding. The current version seemed to have a lot more bourbon, which blende well with the underlying, fairly sweet base beer. There was a lot of vanilla and brown sugar as well, with the beer reminding me more of a barleywine or old ale. Alcohol was very well integrated into the flavor profile, and the beer was very soft, smooth and long on the palate. Had no problem drinking my 8 ounce pour, and was tempted to get another (but there were other beers on offer that required my attention).

Nice effort from the folks at Widmer.
