Had on tap. The pour is a beautiful cloudy amber with nice lacing of foam all the way down the glass. Taste is biscuity with bourbon finish. Not super rich or complex, but done well. The feel is a bit creamy with light hop textures. The smell is bourbon heavy. Best beer by MKE yet!

I'm trying this at TGI Fridays in Brookfield just outside Milwaukee. It poured a clear amber with thin off white is not leaving any lace. The scent had hints of bourbon and raison. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink...masks the big abv well. Certainly a winter Warner sipping amber. The mouthfeel is fuller in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's a solid and big beer.

Maybe not my favorite style of beer. If my review seems to be knocking this beer, it is strictly a matter of personal preference. Strong caramel malt, some raisin character, I find it a little sweet and cloying. Good amber appearance, sufficient head. Although it doesn't seem especially carbonated, I do get a bit of a bite in the finish. Maybe that is the wood? There is also a bit of spiciness. Maybe that is the wood? Full body. One thing I will say is that if this beer is really 10% as indicated on the MKE website, it hides it EXTREMELY well. Maybe drink it for dessert?

Very rich and muddled....gooey caramel, toffee, vanilla...bourbon impression is not impressive.

Thought I was getting something along the lines of Rocky's Revenge from Tyranena but this lacks the barrle flavors of that one and is much boozier... Just noticed this is 10.2%.

It's OK..average....not one of the better bourbon barrel aged beers you'll find.

Dark amber in color, mostly opaque. A finger of light tan foam that dissipates and leaves just a ring around the glass. The aroma is excellent - bourbon, oak, toffee, caramel, molasses. On taste, the malt come through first with toffee, caramel. The bourbon is much more subtle on taste than aroma. The body is medium with moderate-low carbonation. Alcohol warmth on the finish. There is a slight sticky sweetness that I don't love though. Overall, a good brew and a bit of a different take on barrel aged beer. Very enjoyable!

Poured 12oz bottle into pint glass. It is a dirty amber color with a nice 2.5 finger off white head. Fades into a cap and coats the glass with lacing. The aroma is a rich and quite malty with melted caramel, toffee, hints of vanilla and even bourbon and dried fruit. The flavor is also quite malty with big caramel and toffee notes. The bourbon is a nice light compliment along with the vanilla and dried fruit. Feel is medium, rich and full of sof carbonation, They really ramped up the malts to create this big sweet bomb.
