Not as strong or Oaked as expected for a barrel aged CHRISTMAS beer. But still best Christmas beer I've ever had

Appearance: Arrives with a murky ice tea color capped by a couple of inches of foam; nice lacing patterns linger

Smell: Caramel, Bourbon and holiday spices

Taste: Caramel with just a hint of Bourbon, up front; the holiday spices develop in the middle, bringing cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger; after the swallow, the Bourbon picks it up a notch, but complements rather than overwhelms

Mouthfeel; Full bodied, with moderate carbonation'

Overall: A very nice beer here, with the Bourbon adding complexity to the Winter Warmer without overwhelming

On tap at the brewery. Pour is dark murky brown with a tight light tan head. Nose is bourbon forward, a hint chalky with notes of caramel malt, a touch of spice with some sweet berry malt. Taste is a bit more spicy, the barrel is a little lighter in the flavor, the malt sweetness comes out more through the finish. Fairly well integrated and not overly sweet with strong carb and a medium body.
