A big bold barrel aged brown ale with a bit of a kick at 9%, all of this and it drink very smooth. Thick toasted bread character meet the toasty wood, mild chocolate malt goes well with the warming alcohol. An all around great job!!

Good aroma but the taste just was not doing it for me. Very hard to drink and ended up drain pouring most of it.

This poured a dull matte black despite the claims its a brown ale. The head was thick and creamy with an intense foam that had thick lacing and good retention.

Chocolate, brownie, caramel, coconut and light bourbon meet the nose but the aroma is light. The coconut begins to stand out with a sweet vanilla trailer.

The flavor is light with coffee, malty Graham cracker, dry chocolate, brownie batter, coconut and vanilla. It ends with a light bourbonesque quality that imparts some barrel and alcohol.

The feel is maybe more carbonated than I prefer. It's a little dry with some easy sweetness.

Much better than last year's Country Western this was a nice barrel aged beer that had an array of flavors and a good barrel profile.

12 FL OZ can
Served in a becker style glass

It pours very dark brown. Only the faintest of light comes through. It is topped with about three inches of mocha head.

The aroma has some cocoa and subtle hints of caramel. There is even a little vanilla in there.

I would recommend letting this one warm up a little. At first there wasn't much flavor. As it warmed the bourbon came out. I taste some dark chocolate and alcohol as well.

The mouthfeel is full.

This is not a bad brown ale. The bourbon barrel aging works well for this beer.

From the can

A. Very dark brown color. Thick frothy slightly amber head. Fine bubble film. And the can is cool.

S. Dark malts, a tad bit of bourbon, straw, and domestic yeast.

T. Dark malts, calm bourbon, bourbon soaked oak, slight hoppy bitterness, and domestic yeast.

M. Very smooth, high carbonation, medium body.

O. A dang fine ba brown ale. Not too heavy or sweet. Very smooth. One could certainly drink several of these.
