Bomber into a snifter appears a hazy brown color with an off-white head thats quick to fade.

It has an aroma thats tangy with alcohol then abruptly musty with coffee and earth.

It tastes tangy with bourbon, caramel, molasses and musty earthy coffee like the nose suggests.

This is medium in body with modest carbonation. Overall a pretty tasty sipper despite the mustiness.

Amber-copper with a moderate, bubbly foam beige head.

This sucker is hot with pungent rug, hickory and raisin. After that intro, I get sweet peanut, rummy booze, and yellow apple. I at first think this one was too old, then look at the bottle and see that this is only a 2016. WTF? Not a fan.

750ml foiled and capped bottle into a Surly teku. Shared with schen9303.

This one's muddy. Nose is a little weird. Boozy with hints of chocolate, molasses, tobacco and mocha. Syrupy sweet with roasty overtones. Beer opens with hints of blondie, molasses, maple and oak. Boozy from start to finish. Mocha, vanilla and more syrupy sweetness in the middle. Finishes molasses, tobacco and chocolate. Beer is full bodied with moderate carbonation. A little more prickly than I'd like. Goes down thick, rich and boozy.

Solid but this could have been so much more. A little too sweet overall.

Poured from fridge temp to small taster. Pours quite light, to my surprise. Getting lots of vanilla, cocoa, and bourbon on the nose. Taste has quite a bit of coffee - very nice. The cocoa and bourbon are definitely there. It certainly doesn't taste as the alcohol content would suggest. Very smooth. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for a Bruery beer, but overall a fantastic beer.

4900th review! 750 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 2/10/2016. Pours hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Light lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, toffee, medium roast coffee, cocoa, fudge, bourbon, toasted coconut, oak, wheat, brown bread, golden raisin, apricot, plum, fig, date, light pepper, and roast/oak/toasted earthiness. A bit of booze as it warms. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of cocoa/coffee, bourbon barrels, and moderate pale malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of huge caramel, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, toffee, medium roast coffee, cocoa, fudge, bourbon, toasted coconut, oak, wheat, brown bread, golden raisin, apricot, plum, fig, date, pepper, and roast/oak/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate bourbon/tannic oak spice and light roasted cocoa/coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, toffee, medium roast coffee, cocoa, fudge, bourbon, toasted coconut, oak, wheat, brown bread, dark/light fruits, pepper, and roast/oak/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of cocoa/coffee, bourbon barrels, and moderate pale malt sweetness; with a great malt and bourbon/tannic oak spiciness balance, with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light dryness from bourbon/oak spiciness and cocoa/coffee bitter/roasted notes, increasing through the glass. Light-medium carbonation and very full body; with a very creamy/bready/slick, fairly sticky/chalky/tannic, and slightly syrupy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden; a light-moderate warmth lingering after the finish with some light barrel booziness; but not overwhelming. Overall this is an incredible barrel aged wheatwine style. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of cocoa/coffee, bourbon barrels, and moderate pale malt sweetness; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the enormous ABV. Very strong on barrel character without being too boozy; and the balance of malt and cocoa/coffee flavors is amazing. The tannic drying character from the barrel makes this very easy to finish the whole bottle. A highly enjoyable offering.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours with a frothy ecru head layered over the hazy amber liquid; a few squiggles of lacing appear

Smell: Coffee, toasted coconut, chocolate, caramel, vanilla and Bourbon

Taste: A lot of sweet tones, up front, with caramel, toasted coconut and vanilla; the Bourbon builds, after the swallow, and chocolate and coffee appear in the aftertaste; very boozy

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and syrupy, with low to moderate carbonation; warmth in the gullet

Overall: A lot of nice aromatics, but too sweet and boozy (though I know the Bruery likes their beers that way)
