It’s Monday and I’m stuck at work. The only good thing is that I’m off on Saturday for 4th of July. It’s really dead at work since we only have 15 trucks, so I can probably leave at a decent time and mow my lawn. Let’s get to the beer.
Style: Winter Warmer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “BARREL AGED BRRRBON IS AN IMPERIAL VERSION OF OUR BRRR SEASONAL ALE AGED IN KENTUCKY BOURBON BARRELS. THIS SMOOTH WINTER WARMER COMBINES A RICH MALTY SWEETNESS WITH COMPLEX OAK, VANILLA, AND CARAMEL CHARACTERS THAT WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AS THE BEER AGES.”
Random: This was brewed in 2010 and has been aging since 2011.
This beer poured with a one finger, cream-colored head that dissipated slowly and left no lacing on the glass. It left a slight crown on the top of the body. The body itself was a dark and hazy brown color with no visible carbonation. It did have a lot of floaties. The nose was all bourbon and vanilla, which was very strong. The taste had notes of smoke and more bourbon. There was also a lot of vanilla and maple, which was really strong. It had a thick body and no carbonation to speak of. The booze was also really well-hidden. I think the age has something to do with that, but it may have been aged just a little too much. It had a long bourbon and vanilla finish. I really wanted to enjoy this one since I aged it so long, but it just didn’t do much for me. I wouldn’t have this again.
