Beer Review: Widmer Brrrbon '11

Last beer review of 2011.  Pours a beautiful light copper with a small head that sort of disappears into a ring and leaves some decent lacing.  Nose is pretty bourbon, a little woodsy.  First sip is full of delicious bourbon flavors, oak and vanilla.  Finish is much of the same.  Body is medium and carbonation is about the same.

I have to confess, I am a bourbon stan and I passed up the ‘10 vintage because the bourbon flavors were all but gone. So this, to me, is perfect.

Verdict: this is a nice bourbon-barrel aged beer. Just the right amount of bourbon and nice candied holiday flavors around the edges.
