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.

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

Big thanks goes out to my doppelganger who shared this one at a tasting in celebration of me walking again and going back to work! Bottle #41 of 999! Served from 1.5 L bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a deep red-orange with a minimal off-white head. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, cinnamon, peppermint, brown sugar, wood, and sweet alcohol. The flavor was of sweet malt, pine, cinnamon, peppermint, brown sugar, wood, and sweet alcohol. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The barrel really added a nice touch to this brew. It was very heavy on the Christmas spices in this one, but the barrel helped to balance them out. Definitely worth trying if you get the chance.
