Bottle pour for New Brew Thursday's 3rd Anniversary event held at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, vanilla, bourbon, and wood. Taste is much the same with a woody and bourbon flavor on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a decent barrel aged presence.

deep copper, thick, lace-heavy, almond color head. smells like sweet malt, and sweet bourbon. taste is very similar to the aroma, but with a hint of oak thrown in. mouthfeel is nice, slightly sticky and medium bodied. this is the kind of extra i love to receive!

R" logo-stamped, black wax capped 22oz bottle from j47paco (thanks yet again!). No discernible bottle date. Served in a Bells snifter.

Pours a brilliant ruby chestnut with a little less than one finger dirty cream color head. Those frothy bubbles crackle away to a sparce, thin layer of retention while leaving only a few specks of lace behind.

Smells of bourbon soaked oak, caramel, mild floral and a little vanilla. Pretty nice.

Taste expounds upon that nose. Bourbon, burnt caramel, herbal, floral bitterness, toffee, raisins, cereal and a subtle but undeniable booze heat.

Caramelly smooth medium full feel with light carbonation. Boozey burnt caramel, oak and semi bitter fruit skins comprise the finish.

Somewhere between an American barleywine and strong ale lies Bourbon Barrel Aged Freudian Slip. An enjoyable sipper with pleasant notes that cross some style lines to create a a familiar yet slightly different brew.

Had a 4oz taster at the Brewery in San Diego. Very nice flavor with the hint of burbon.
