A: Dark copper hue with a thin half-inch head but steady head and okay lacing

S: Lots of bready, toffee, and caramel malts but pretty simple and subdued all around; perhaps a hint of bourbon but that may just be an effect of the power of suggestion

T: The bourbon is actually prevalent in the flavors and really plays well off the slightly sweet bready malts; really quite balanced and tasty

F: Creamy, medium body that is even slightly chewy on the finish

O: A subtle bourbon beer and one that's perfect for enjoying a couple of pints of--which is different for a bourbon-forward beer; the flavors complement each other nicely--nice beer

Tasted in a snifter from a 12 oz bottle on August 1, 2013. This is a beer I revisit at least once a year because the barrel aging process yields slightly different results from batch to batch. Recommended.

Pours a huge, dense, off-white head that has great persistence. Initial aroma is floral hops with a distinct wood and oak notes; bright and floral as the head settles. Deep burnt umber color. Starts with a nice mix of toasted malt, floral hops, and bitterness. Good amount of metallic as things mellow, then notes of oak and wood come forward from the shadows. Finish is metallic hops and toasted malt with lingering complexity of oak wood.

There are some really great things going on here, but there's also just too much of a metallic presence coming in and out to allow this to reach its full potential. If the metallic aspect were gone, this would get a score bump of a full point.

Rocky's Revenge pours a brownish color with a small lacing head. Their is a oaky aroma, with a nice malty backbone, and hints of coffee. The taste has a nice malty backbone, with hints of oak, and coffee. Nice full flavors, just a weak carbonation. Overall a nice flavorful brown ale.
