12oz Bottle

Rocky's Revenge poured a hazy dark amber with a nice craggy slightly off white head. Carbonation bubbles coming from below. The head sticks around on this one. Stcky white lacing half way through my glass.

The smell is good. Sweet malts come through up front followed by vanilla. There is a nice smoky/roasted scent to finish.

There is a lot of flavors going on. Sweet creamy malt quickly followed by vanilla and oak. The bourbon flavor is right on. After the bourbon this beer finishes with a nice chocolate. A little burnt bitterness comes along after the swallow.

Mouthfeel is good. Creamy and smooth. Medium bodied. Goes down good.

The drinkability suffers a little for the simple fact that this beer is more of a sipper.

Overall Rocky's Revenge is a very good beer. It says on the bottle that a portion is aged in bourbon barrels. The bourbon flavor is right where it should be. Not too strong. If you see this pick it up. It's a good beer to give a try. Hopefully it's still around next time I go up there cause I'll definately be buying more.
